The brand acquired the items from designer Olivier Chatenay, collector of the Saint Laurent archive. In an interview, he revealed that he had a lot of fun collecting the brand's collection over the past 30 years. “I like that the collection will be useful and I am not the only one to enjoy it. I still love these things, even if they no longer belong to me, "- said Chatenay.
The collection includes coats, dresses, suits, blouses, bags, jewelery, several haute couture outfits, including a 1967 African beaded embroidered dress previously owned by the Duchess of Windsor.
