#PARIS  Miss Deneuve, as she is still called in the Yves Saint Laurent House, is separating from a (large?) part of her YSL wardrobe and is about to disperse it under the hammer of Christies Paris. End of an era?

Free and liberated by the admirable cloakroom that Yves Saint Laurent, the man of taste, has created for her throughout her deep and sincere friendship, there are about 300 pieces that will be sold at auction on Thursday 24 January and online until 30 January.

While Parisian fashion week is in full swing, and we can sometimes wonder at the end of the catwalks, about the inconsistency of what we have just seen, the form prevailing over the substance, a return to the simplest elegance is of the greatest freshness.

Dive into the glamorous world of this icon, a reserved woman and ambassador of French chic, rather than into the crowded shops that sell their unsold goods in the surrounding area. More than a story of friendship between these two kindred spirits, it is a story of France that is revealed to us through the creations of one and the collection of the other.

In a quasi-museum setting, Maison Christies has adapted its lounges to highlight the sumptuous pieces in this new collection. Here we are at the foot of a podium, or there, in the heart of a dream cloakroom that brings together tailors and blouses, cocktail dresses, dresses and velvet jackets with impeccable cuts and perfect shoulders.

More than a dream wardrobe, perfectly mastered and balanced, it is a certain look at fashion, an art of living, the story of an era that is written before our eyes, which was born with “Belle de jour” and the little black dress of this pretty bourgeois woman who is bored, and guides us to the last pieces released from the workshops in 2002.

Mademoiselle Deneuve not only dresses in Yves Saint Laurent, she is the embodiment of it: elegant with a simple cashmere sweater and jersey dress that the designer integrates from the very first creations into the women’s cloakroom, as a Hollywood mermaid dressed in a gold lamé sheath to climb the steps of Cannes or in the iconic black tuxedo, immortalized by Helmut Newton.

The sale includes about three hundred pieces, divided into two shifts, one in Christie’s Parisian salons, the other online. All parts are visible until Thursday 24 January 12:00 in Paris avenue Matignon. Some parts are offered with starting prices below 300 euros.

What if, for a handful of dollars, buying a little piece of myth is no longer an inaccessible dream?
