FULL SKETCH: Fans of late French designer Yves Saint Laurent can pore over every couture outfit he ever sketched thanks to a new catalogue in four volumes, presented in box form. “Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture: The Complete Works 1962-2002,” provides a detailed running order of the couturier’s 81 collections through reproductions of close to 1,300 presentation boards featuring sketches, fabric swatches and other handwritten details. The guide, published by Editions de La Martinière and the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation, will be available in a numbered edition of 500 that can be preordered for 1,700 euros, or $2,360, until March 10, or purchased for 2,100 euros, or $2,915, from March 11. A bilingual consultation guide and collection of show programs completes the set.
