I’m currently reading The Beautiful Fall by Alicia Drake. I have to say that it’s a great book if you want to get to know more about Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, and Morocco. I love when it talks about Yves Saint Laurent fascination with Morocco’s culture and also his love story with Pierre Biergé.
The book also teaches the reader a little about Moroccan and French history. It’s necessary to go over the historic points, such as the Algerian war. Without those details, Yves Saint Laurent’s story wouldn’t exist.
Yves was one of the many people, heiress Doris Duke and author Paul Bowles included, who decided to adopt Morocco as their home. I think I’ll be amongst those names too.
