This morning I heard the unfortunate news about the death of Pierre Bergé, the French businessman who co-founded the fashion house Yves St. Laurent in 1961. After a battle with a long illness Mr. Bergé passed away in Paris this morning. Bergé’s passing comes as two new major museums dedicated to Yves Saint Laurent are to be opened by the Foundation Pierre Bergé this fall. He was also the life partner of Yves St. Laurent. They a married in 2008, the year of St. Laurent’s death. Bergé later married American landscaper Madison Cox. A few months ago Marie Claire Maison Magazine featured Bergé in the garden of his Paris home, where I hope he found much joy and serenity.
