Jardin Majorelle

During our first day in Marrakech we had the pleasure of visiting the Majorelle Garden (Jardin Majorelle). This twelve-acre botanical garden was designed by the French artist Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s and 1930s. Since 1980 the garden has been owned by Yves Saint-Laurent and his former partner, and co-founder of Yves Saint Laurent Couture House, Pierre Bergé.

What intrigued me the most within this spectacular garden was a room known as the “Gallerie Love". This room is filled with posters that Yves Saint Laurent used to create and send to his friends and clients of his fashion house every year since the 70’s. He made the last one in 2007, before his death, where he included for the first time the logo of the iconic brand.

For this look I chose to wear one of my favourite maxi skirts. Having worn this black skirt quite a few times in the usual way, I decided to add a twist to it by making a knot at the front thereby creating a draping effect at the sides. I combined it with a bright yellow top, black sandals and my Chloé Elsie bag.
