MARRAKECH EXPRESS: Long before Jean Paul Gaultier’s catwalk homage to Morocco during men’s fashion week, Yves Saint Laurent was introducing djellabas and tarboosh hats into women’s wardrobes. The late couturier’s Moroccan-style creations will go on show for the first time in the city that inspired them, when the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation stages a retrospective at the Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech later this year. “Yves Saint Laurent and Morocco” will present 44 creations by Saint Laurent, who first visited Morocco in 1966 and bought the garden and adjoining villa with his partner, Pierre Bergé, in 1980. They will include his famous Saharienne, as well as capes embroidered with bougainvilleas inspired by the lush local vegetation. The exhibition is scheduled to run from Nov. 27 to March 18.
