Made in Italy part of the next Yves Saint Laurent Museum

Made in Italy will be a huge part of the next Paris Museum – and not a simple museum, but the Yves Saint Laurent Museum, dedicated to one of the most influential fashion designer of the 20th century.

The museum will be located in the historic palace of Avenue Marceau where, since 1974, the designer has run his famous maison, conceived his fashion creations and collected over 700 works of art – including paintings by Picasso, Matisse and Van Gogh. In 2002, the palace has become the seat of the Foundation and tomorrow it will officially become a museum.

The Yves Saint Laurent Museum will host and exhibit forty years of creations, from the origins to the last period of the fashion brand: an impressive collection which is currently owned the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation and that includes about 5000 models.

But what about the Made in Italy connected to the Yves Saint Laurent Museum? In order to protect the most important collections that will be publicly visible, the management of the museum has chosen the Milanese company Goppion, specialized in the production of high-tech display cases. Goppion’s solutions are already famously used in other several “critical” conditions and environments.

The Italian company has been involved in the engineering and manufacturing of large windows, wall windows and table windows that will protect Yves Saint Laurent’s most sensitive and important works. The solution offered by Goppion assures, according to the company, “structural and climatic stability” to the invaluable collection made of clothing, accessories, fabrics, documents and many precious and fragile items.
