The auction sale of the century
Today, I went to the Yves Saint Laurent/Pierre Bergé auction sale preview at Le Grand Palais, everyone - well in France at least - is talking about at the moment. The line was so long that the wait was roughly of 4 hours (yes!) but thanks to "Guille", whom you all know if you're a PDP follower, I had the chance to get a pass that made me wait only one hour! It's hard to imagine that someone can have so much beauty in one single house (well actually in two apartments, but still...). I'm sure you can read everything about this sale on the web, but let me just show you this simple drawing by YSL I photographed at the very end of the "exhibition". I think it's extremely moving.
