An Yves Saint Laurent museum has opened in Paris, featuring the brand's most iconic looks and the eponymous couturier's official design studio. The launch takes place nearly three weeks after the death of YSL co-founder Pierre Bergé, who passed away on September 8 at the age of 86. He was dedicated to finding a permanent home for Saint Laurent's archives.

The first room focuses on the designer's masculine-meets-feminine designs, including the Le Smoking tuxedo, a trenchcoat and Saharienne jacket, according to WWD. The rest of the space will highlight "the development of a collection," featuring a few looks from Saint Laurent's first two seasons under his eponymous label in 1962, which will be updated every year.

Another section showcases intricately-crafted jackets, while a different room celebrates YSL's exotic influences. In the reception area, photos and paintings of Saint Laurent hang on the walls, including Andy Warhol's famous pop-art portraits of the late designer.

The exhibit officially opened to the public on October 3. The inaugural exhibit will be on display until September 9, 2018. A single full-priced ticket costs €10 (about P600). Plan your visit here. YSL fans that can't make it to France shouldn't fret; another Saint Laurent museum is set to open in Marrakech on October 19.
