Musée Yves Saint Lauren has recently opened in Marrakech. A stunning example of the design world’s recently rekindled love affair with brick, the 4,000 square metre space is dedicated to the late fashion designer’s life and work. This incredible homage was designed by French architectural duo Olivier Marty and Karl Fournier of studio kO. While studying the couturier’s archives, Marty and Fournier were intrigued by his approach to fabric – both curved and straight lines, and loose and precise cutting. This directly inspired the façade where an intersection of cubes acts as a lace–like covering to stunning effect. With both permanent and temporary exhibitions, an auditorium, bookstore and café, Musée YSL and Marrakech are firmly on our travel wish list. Photography courtesy of studio kO.
