IFC Films just sent us over some new stills and the trailer for L’amour Fou, a documentary about Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé that was a pretty big hit at both the Toronto and Tribeca Film Festicals. For those not in the know, Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent, known as Yves Saint Laurent was the most consistently celebrated and influential French fashion designer, and one of the greatest names in fashion history. In 1983, Saint Laurent became the first living fashion designer to be honored by the Metropolitan Museum of Art with a solo exhibition and in 2007, he was awarded the rank of Grand officier de la Légion d’honneur by French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Sadly he passed away in 2008 of brain cancer but a few days before he died, Saint Laurent and Bergé were joined in a same-sex civil union known as a “Pacte civil de solidarité” in France.

Here is the official Synopsis:

The public life of Yves Saint Laurent was as extravagant as it was decadent, as a design prodigy and then the grand couturier of a fashion empire, he influenced fifty years of style – but few are familiar with the private life of the legend. In Pierre Thoretton’s L’amour Fou, Pierre Berge, the man with which YSL shared four decades of his life and love, reflects on the equally extravagant history of their personal relationship. Framed around the 2009 auction of the priceless, elaborate art collection amassed by Yves and Pierre personally over several decades, this extraordinary documentary provides an unprecedented look at the life of the mythic personality, whose personal life matched his public for elegance, extravagance and passion.
