PARIS — Flowers were piling up in front of the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation in memory of the late designer as preparations were being completed for Saint Laurent's funeral at the Eglise Saint-Roch here today.
Inside the foundation at 5 Avenue Marceau, which Saint Laurent founded with Bergé after he retired in 2002, the atmosphere was frenetic and solemn. Members of the Saint Laurent clan fielded requests for invitations to the funeral services, while others pored over details for the mass.
