Get ready for Yves Saint Laurent, the musical

ysl

If Chanel fever from this week's premiere of Coco Avant Chanel isn't enough for you, here's another fashion-meets-the-arts collaboration to get excited about. The inimitable Yves Saint Laurent, who died last year from brain cancer, now looks as if he'll have his life set to music. French songwriter Pierre-Dominique Burgaud is working on a musical production of the designer's life, starting from his early days as a couturier at Christian Dior, alongside singer Alain Chamfort. And Yves's partner, Pierre Bergé, has already listened to some of the songs: ‘They are very good... They are moving.' All we want to know is, when do the tickets go on sale? [WWD]
