In Love With L’Amour

I’m not a super fashionable guy (as my friends and family will attest!) — but I am fashion-ated with this new documentary, L’Amour Fou, now available on DVD about the life and death of legendary designer, Yves Saint Laurent.

Following the icon’s death, Pierre Bergé, Mr. Saint Laurent’s lover of 50+ years, decided to auction off their prized art collection and luxury furnishings (which brought in a cool $484 million) — and the pic is a mournful, meditative look at not only their relationship, but also the obsessive nature of collectors — and brings up the question: is it the person or the stuff that brings true value to life?
