L’UNIVERS DE LA LIBRAIRIE DU MUSÉE S’INSPIRE DE LA PREMIÈRE BOUTIQUE DE PRÊT-À- PORTER,
SAINT LAURENT RIVE GAUCHE,
CONÇUE PAR L’ARCHITECTE ISABELLE HEBEY,
ET INAUGURÉE EN 1966

Isabelle Hebey initie avec Yves Saint Laurent les codes fondateurs des boutiques : cloisons et claustras en rouge sang de bœuf, présentoirs en aluminium brossé, mobilier d’Olivier Mourgue mauve, lampes boules en papier japonais d’Isamu Noguchi et murs tendus de miroirs. La librairie du musée YVES SAINT LAURENT marrakech en réinterprète les codes. Située en fin de parcours de l’exposition, le public demeure immergé dans l’une des multiples facettes de l’univers décoratif d’Yves Saint Laurent.

La librairie propose des ouvrages relatifs à Yves Saint Laurent, la mode, le Maroc et à la programmation du musée. Affiches et cartes postales LOVE évoquent l’esprit du couturier. Des rééditions de bijoux «Loulou de la Falaise» sont proposées aux visiteurs. Enfin, une sélection de films et de livres chers à Yves Saint Laurent (les chefs d’œuvres de Luchino Visconti, la Recherche du temps perdu de Marcel Proust,…) évoque comme la «cinémathèque» et la «bibliothèque» idéales du couturier.

Payment by credit card only.

 


Café le studio

Café le studio

The museum’s cafe, le studio, takes its name from yves saint laurent’s workspace at 5 avenue marceau in paris, and evokes the calm and intimate environment where the couturier would retreat and work

The materials used in the café reflect the simple and subdued atmosphere of the couturier’s workspace. The pale-coloured wood, plaster light fixtures and white marble at the café’s entrance create a monastic and contemporary feel. A large, panoramic drawing by Ulrich Gassmann of Yves Saint Laurent’s Paris studio reminds us of the café’s namesake. The calmness is underscored by the wicker furniture; its saffron colour brightens and provides warmth to the room. A harmony of styles and cultures is provided by the Japanese-inspired curtains. More than just a café, this is a place one retreats to after the emotional impact of the museum.

Le Studio can seat up to 75 people.

Payment by credit card only.

Landscaping

The minimalist approach to the landscaped areas at the musee yves saint laurent marrakech is in keeping with two longstanding principles advocated by the fondation jardin majorelle: the promotion of water conservation and the planting of ecologically responsible varieties

The landscaped areas of the mYSLm reflect the wide diversity of plants cultivated in the country.  Sourced locally from specialist plant nurseries in the Marrakech region, they include varieties native to Morocco as well as those introduced centuries ago and well-adapted to the particular climatic conditions of this desert city.

Pink Trumpet Vine (Podranea riscasdiana) cascades down into the square, blue and green glazed tiled patio as one enters the museum, creating a cool and refreshing ambience that contrasts with the hot climate of Marrakech.

A large rectangular-shaped reflecting pool lined with zelliges (Moroccan glazed tiles) outside Le Studio Café provides another relaxing and tranquil setting for visitors. It is surrounded with luxuriant, large-leaved plants such as Papyrus, Giant Strelizia, Monstera, and Philodendron that create a jungle-like Henri Rousseau atmosphere.

Originally native to Mexico but commonly found throughout Morocco since their introduction to the country centuries ago, Barbary Figs or prickly pears (Opuntiaspp) are extensively planted towards the exit of the museum, where visitors can enjoy their unique shapes and diversity of colour and form.
