The late designer will have two museums to his name in 2017

The late fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent will be the subject of two concept museums due to open next year, the Telegraph reports.

Saint Laurent's long-time partner, Pierre Berge, has announced his wish to create a museum in Paris and one in Marrakech, where the designer had his second home.

The Paris space will be dedicated to Saint Laurent's creative process, with replicas of his studio and couture salons, and a rotating archive of clothes, sketches, artworks and photographs. The museum will be housed in a mansion on avenue Marceau, where the designer worked for 30 years.

The exhibition space in Marrakech, currently under contruction, will spread across 4,000sq ft and commemorate the designer's passion for Morocco. It's slated to open in time to celebrate 50 years since Saint Laurent first discovered Marrakech, where he ended up buying two --stunning-- houses.
