La Bibliothèque De Pierre Bergé - Deuxième vente, 8 et 9 Novembre 2016

£35.00

Product description

Pierre Bergé (1930–2017) was an award-winning French industrialist and patron. A social liberal but politically conservative, he co-founded the fashion label Yves Saint Laurent, and was a longtime business partner (and onetime life partner) of the famous designer. The couple split amicably in 1976 and remained lifelong friends and business partners, Bergé being CEO of Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture until it closed in 2002. Highly protective of and invested in the reputation and legacy of Saint Laurent Couture, Bergé was known as the "Dean of Yves Saint Laurent". A man of many interests, he was a collector of art and manuscripts, many of which were sold in 2009. A second sale in 2016 was held to dispose of items of European literature, dating from 1700-1900.

Our copy of the sale catalogue is in almost pristine condition, in orange paper-covered boards, showing almost no signs of wear or use externally (a slight mark on spine, very light rubbing of corners of boards and spine), tight binding, and clean bright pages throughout. It is a very heavy volume, so additional postage is necessary. Text is in French throughout.
