Yves Saint Laurent Fabric Exhibition Set for Lyon

YSL’S MATERIAL WORLD: Yves Saint Laurent’s 40-year link with the fabric manufacturers of Lyon, France, is in the spotlight for an upcoming exhibition at the Musée des Tissus de Lyon. It will run from Nov. 9 to March 8 and is being organized with the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris. Called “Les coulisses de la haute couture à Lyon” (or “Behind the scenes of haute couture in Lyon”), the show explores the designer’s creative process, while highlighting the fabrics he used that were made in Lyon, historically the world’s silk-weaving capital. The upcoming show includes some never-before and rarely seen pieces by Saint Laurent, samples of materials he used, original sketches, photographs, archival documents and accessories. On display, too, will be films of interviews with the designer’s employees and textile-makers. The Musée des Tissus de Lyon was formed in the middle of the 19th century and today boasts the largest collection of textiles globally, with approximately 2.5 million pieces that span 4,500 years. The museum has hosted numerous fashion designer exhibitions in the past, including on Franck Sorbier in 2009, Léonard in 2006, Olivier Lapidus in 1997, Madeleine Vionnet in 1994, Jeanne Paquin in 1989, Cristóbal Balenciaga in 1985 and Mariano Fortuny in 1980.

Kering Negotiating Lease for Saint Laurent’s Future Industrial Complex

SAINT LAURENT’S TUSCAN HUB: Kering is said to be negotiating the lease of a building in Scandicci, outside Florence, for its Saint Laurent brand, according to a note issued by the Italian town’s municipality.
CDP Investimenti, which is part of the Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, a financial company controlled by the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance, has initiated exclusive negotiations with the French luxury group to lease the Palazzo delle Finanze in Scandicci. The cement, three-story building dates back to the 1991 to 1994 period and covers almost 310,000 square feet. It was meant to house the Center of the Ministry of Finance, but it has never been fully finished or used.
Kering had no comment on Friday.
According to the note, a change of destination of the building has been approved, and it can be recovered and destined to production activities.
Local media speculate that Compagnie Financière Richemont was also eyeing the building and the note, without naming the group, said CDP had received another offer by a company “operating in the luxury sector at an international level.”
Mayor Sandro Fallani said the goal is to “save a neglected [location] and to transform it in a unique development opportunity that would bring employment, excellence

Charlotte Casiraghi Weds in Saint Laurent

MONACO BRIDE: Charlotte Casiraghi tied the knot with Dimitri Rassam, the father of her seven-month-old son Balthazar, in a civil ceremony in Monaco on Saturday.
The bride wore a short guipure dress embellished with crystal-embroidered bows and satin sandals, all designed by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent, the brand said in a statement. Her hair was styled by John Nollet, the hairstylist said in a separate statement.
Guests at the ceremony included socialites Bianca Brandolini and Eugenie Niarchos, as well as her brothers Andrea Casiraghi, with his wife Tatiana Santo Domingo, and Pierre Casiraghi, with his spouse Beatrice Borromeo, according to French media reports.
Rassam, a film producer, is the son of French actress Carole Bouquet and producer Jean-Pierre Rassam. It is the first wedding for Casiraghi, who has another son, Raphaël, from a previous relationship with French humorist Gad Elmaleh.
The daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco and granddaughter of American film star Grace Kelly, Casiraghi is a regular at fashion week events, regularly attending Gucci and Saint Laurent shows.
The Monaco royal appeared in Saint Laurent’s fall 2018 campaign and had previously featured in ads for Gucci, which like Saint Laurent belongs to French conglomerate Kering, headed by François-Henri Pinault. She also

Catherine Deneuve’s Saint Laurent Wardrobe Raises $1M at Auction

MILLION-DOLLAR WARDROBE: The sale of Catherine Deneuve’s Yves Saint Laurent outfits raised $ 1 million during an auction at Christie’s Paris on Thursday, with every single lot snapped up.
Interest in the sale was so strong that 90 percent of the 129 lots sold for multiple times above their pre-sale estimate, while the pre-sale exhibition held during Paris Couture Week drew 4,500 visitors, the auction house said. Online bidding for a further 140 lots remains open until Jan. 30 at midnight.
“This week, with highlights including the view and the auction itself, has been a new experience for me and has exceeded my expectations in many ways,” Deneuve said in a statement.
“I would like to thank Christie’s for the beautiful catalogue and the fact they paid tribute to YSL’s talent by presenting his creations in such an exquisite way at the preview, attended by thousands of people. I sincerely hope that the new owners will enjoy these pieces of couture as much as I did,” she added.
The top lot was an haute couture evening ensemble consisting of a chiffon blouse, scarf and taffeta skirt from the Russian collection that Saint Laurent designed for fall 1977. It sold for $ 59,745, 10 times the top

Yves Saint Laurent Illustrations for Children’s Book Up for Auction

THE DEVIL IN PARIS: Parisian auction house Cornette de Saint Cyr is holding an auction on Dec. 19 of 100 drawings by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
The pictures, drawn by Saint Laurent between 1961 and 1962, were destined to illustrate a children’s book commissioned by Parisian publisher Jacques Damase, but the project never came through. This is the first time the drawings are being unveiled to the public.
Named “Le Diable à Paris” (“The Devil in Paris”), the book, written by Damase, features a dapper-looking devil, drawn by Saint Laurent, wearing a red suit and little black horns on the cover illustration.
Other drawings see the devil dress up to visit a duchess, sport a leopard-printed suit and even a bull’s head in an illustration titled “Le Diable Espagnol” (“The Spanish Devil”), where he is pictured alongside a flamenco dancer.
Drawn in ink, pastel or graphite in mostly red and black hues, the title character is faced with an array of magical creatures, such as a giraffe in the shape of the Eiffel Tower or a human body with a dragon’s head.
A statement from the auction house explained Damase met Saint Laurent through accessories designer Roger Vivier. At the time of the project, the

Models 1 Establishes Scholarship for Central Saint Martins Students

HELPING HAND: Models 1, the British modeling agency behind the likes of Linda Evangelista and Yasmin Le Bon, is marking its 50th anniversary by partnering with Central Saint Martins to introduce a new scholarship for BA Fashion students.
As part of the scholarship, the agency will offer to pay the final year tuition fees for one home or European student on the course. They will also provide the winning student — chosen based on academic merit and financial need — with eight models for their graduation show, as well as a model to shoot their final-year collection.
The aim of the partnership was for the agency, which frequently works with Saint Martins alumni, to give back to the industry and support British talent.
“We realize the significance of encouraging and producing exceptional design talent of tomorrow. This partnership also coincides with Models 1’s 50th birthday and this was our way to commemorate our involvement in fashion,” said Pauline Rendell, director and head of accounts at Models 1.

Women’s Reboot Powering Saint Laurent

PARIS — Behind the Gucci-centric headlines that greet every quarter of impressive growth at Kering, there is another brand that is fueling the French luxury group — Saint Laurent — because of a reboot of its women’s wear offer under chief executive officer Francesca Bellettini and creative director Anthony Vaccarello.
“If you think that the luxury industry is mostly women-driven, and before Anthony, our men’s ready-to-wear business was bigger than the women’s ready-to-wear, it’s dysfunctional, so there was a huge job that we had to do to reaffirm the woman of Saint Laurent,” she explained.
“Without clarifying the image and the positioning of the woman, and the elevation of the woman, we could not secure the future of the company,” Bellettini added in an interview at the company’s corporate headquarters on Avenue George V here on Friday, a day after Kering published its first-half results.
Since she took over in 2013, the Italian executive has overseen a tripling of the house’s sales, though she’s not one to sit on her laurels. Rather, she continually drives her teams toward the next challenge, as she propels the label founded by Yves Saint Laurent toward its long-term revenue target of 3 billion euros.

Central Saint Martins Shows Off Conceptually Charged Designs at BA Fashion Show

LONDON — Central Saint Martins unveiled its annual BA fashion show at the school’s 1Granary campus this week, showcasing works from 41 students. Their designs, ranging from the experimental to the political and conceptual, reflected the breadth of the students’ specializations, including women’s wear, men’s wear, print, fashion design, marketing and knitwear.
Paolina Russo won the L’Oréal Professionnel Young Talent Award. By the time she turned 21, Russo had already been photographed by Kendall Jenner for Love magazine, styled for the band Dream Wife and been named a muse of John Galliano.
The collection was a love letter to Russo’s Canadian hometown, with ensembles drawing heavily from contact sports. She weaved together elbow pads, shin guards and protective gear to create structured outfits, while the final look was a crocheted dress that resembled a soccer ball, albeit a beautiful, wearable one.
The three runners-up included women’s wear student Simon Valer Dacsef, who was also awarded the LVMH Grand Prix scholar prize for his lineup of voluminous flouncy dresses in a sea of bright greens, pinks and blues.
Elsewhere, student René Scheibenbauer’s muted palette radiated peace of mind. Deconstructed tailoring took on soft twisting and draping elements and his black and white palette was punctuated

Saint Laurent to Stage Show in New York on June 6

BE A PART OF IT: Having harnessed the power of the Eiffel Tower in his last two women’s ready-to-wear shows, Anthony Vaccarello now has his eye on the Big Apple.
The designer will stage his next show for Saint Laurent in New York City on June 6, according to sources familiar with the label’s plans. Such a move would be a powerful endorsement for New York Fashion Week, which has seen a clutch of designers defect to other locations in recent seasons.
Officials at Saint Laurent declined to comment on the house’s plans.
The New York calendar is in flux, following Alexander Wang’s decision to move his show to June from September. In tandem with Wang’s move, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has put into motion plans for official summer and winter fashion seasons taking place as soon as June and December 2018.
The CFDA’s web site lists June 2 to 6 as the dates for the next New York Fashion Week, to be followed by New York Fashion Week: Men’s from July 8 to 10. It is sticking to its main women’s season from Sept. 5 to 11.

Central Saint Martins’ MA Students Present Graduate Collections at London Fashion Week

Student graduate shows can be hit or miss but the 19 MA students from Central Saint Martins presented an exciting mix that ran the sartorial gamut from extreme silhouettes and innovative textiles to sleek tailoring in more traditional fabrications.
Among the highlights: Liam Johnson, whose sculptural silhouettes opened the show; Elise Perrotta’s all cream collection featuring wardrobe staples in textural knits, and women’s wear designer Edwin Mohney, who closed the show with a provocative collection that included conceptual pieces made using inflatables wrapped in packing tape.
As in past seasons, craftsmanship in the men’s wear stood out. Particularly noteworthy was Olaf Tavares Vieira, whose draped men’s wear collection was awarded the L’Oreal Professional Creative Award. Inspired by utilitarianism and the stomach as the center of the body, his lineup included fluid ankle-grazing coats, along with sweaters with cutouts in the back and slouchy trousers enveloping the torso that had a monkish appeal.
“I like clothes that are close on the neck and belly and on the ankle,” Vieira explained. “It gives me a kind of strength, even if the clothes are soft.”
He shared the prize with women’s wear designer Rebecca Jeffs, whose tactile collection was a clever play on famous sayings such as

“Empowering women is something I’m extremely passionate about, so I’m very happy we’re able to host this event to support ‘She Should Run,’” Taylor said. “I think it’s a very important time to support women running for office, and I really admire Christene as a friend and fellow women entrepreneur for starting ‘Vintage for a Cause.’”
“Stacy and I share a deep mutual affection for vintage, so it was a given I wanted to do these pop-up sales with her, as well as other women, designers and shop-owners who share our affinity for beautiful pieces from the past,” Barberich said.

Central Saint Martins Hosts Annual BA Fashion Show

LONDON — The Central Saint Martins annual BA fashion show highlighted works from 41 students studying fashion design with marketing, knitwear, men’s wear, fashion print and women’s wear as their specializations. Designs ranged from the conceptual and expressive to the eccentric.
Goom Heo won the L’Oréal Professionnel Young Talent Award, which comes with an undisclosed cash prize. The fashion print student, who has already done internships at Molly Goddard and Kenzo, was inspired by the men she discovered during her travels across Asia. This was Heo’s first foray into men’s wear with ensembles including a layered look featuring a top made from a stack of vintage T-shirts. She paired the top with shiny black trousers.
Second place went to LVMH Grand Prix scholar and knitwear student Sarah Ansah, who created a red-and-white striped knit crop top and matching miniskirt.
Fashion design and marketing student Sheryn Akiki came in third. Her final look was based on a military flight suit done in soft linen. She meticulously twisted elastic into the oversize trousers giving them a distressed effect. Her dresses were handwoven and screen printed with enlarged graphic patterns.

Gosha Rubchinskiy to Show in Saint Petersburg, Russia

Gosha Rubchinskiy will present his spring 2018 collection in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
The Russian men’s wear designer, who has gained a cult following for his Nineties influenced pieces that are rooted in Moscow’s skate culture, is continuing his traveling show concept and has opted to present in Russia’s popular port city, which is on the Baltic Sea. The show, which will take place on June 11, also aligns with the 2018 World Cup that’s happening across Russia this year. Rubchinskiy has a partnership with Adidas Football.
Last season, Rubchinskiy presented his collection in Kaliningrad, a remote city in Russia that’s along the Baltic Coast. The runway show took place in a building that used to operate as a youth cultural center during the Soviet era, a time period that the designer consistently references.
“The Russian market is very important for us — and for me, it’s important that Russians wear Gosha. I am pretty sure the Adidas collaboration will further grow the brand locally,” Rubchinskiy previously told WWD.
For editors who can’t make it to Russia, the line will be showcased at the Comme des Garçons showroom in Paris from June 24 to June 27.

Saint Laurie Changes Name to Kozinn + Sons

Goliath won out in the end.
Saint Laurie, a third-generation New York City-based tailor, has sold its name to Yves Saint Laurent and changed the name of its business to Kozinn + Sons Merchant Tailors.
Andrew Kozinn, whose grandfather Samuel founded the company in 1913, said his family has been “involved in litigation” with Yves Saint Laurent on and off since the Seventies. But when the company’s former creative director Hedi Slimane decided to drop the Yves from the name and rebrand the collection Saint Laurent Paris in 2012, Kozinn said he sued again.
But the cost of “modern-day litigation,” and battling a massive corporation like Saint Laurent proved too “arduous” for the small Saint Laurie business and Kozinn opted to “sell the trademark to them.”
The deal was quietly cut last year, he said, but under the terms of the sale, Saint Laurie had a year to officially change its name.
Now Kozinn has sent a letter to the Saint Laurie customers revealing the name change and ensuring them of “my family’s continuing pledge to provide quality, service and value to you.”
The letter explained that there was ongoing “confusion” between Saint Laurie and Saint Laurent, especially with online searches, and “the two companies negotiated

Christopher Kane, Central Saint Martins Students Reimagine ‘Beauty and the Beast’

DISNEY FOR ADULTS: Disney is giving its adult fans a chance to relive their childhoods with a series of designer collaborations marking its new adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast.”
Christopher Kane is among Disney’s most popular collaborators, having just launched an extensive collection of ready-to-wear and accessories inspired by the new film.
As a self-confessed Disney fan and “animation snob” since childhood, the designer said he had always been looking for the right opportunity to partner with Disney.
“I hated ‘Tom and Jerry,’ I hated all that crap. I only watched Disney as a child, and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ was even more of an exception because Belle was not a princess; she was a normal girl, she was smart, she was an outsider, so that’s why I had an immediate attraction,” said Kane, who celebrated the collection launch at his Mount Street flagship on Thursday.
The new, “more mature” adaptation of the film featuring Emma Watson as Belle presented an opportunity for the designer to reimagine the children’s classic into a collection for adults.

He re-created the rose motif in myriad ways, printing it on simple T-shirts or sweatshirts with sleeve cutouts, incorporating it on a macramé lace minidress or adding oversize floral

Jeweler Wallace Chan Speaks at Central Saint Martins

WALLACE’S WORLD: The artist-jeweler Wallace Chan revealed details of his hardscrabble childhood and lifelong obsessions during a discussion with Anne Smith, dean of Central Saint Martins, in London this week.
The self-taught, Hong Kong-based Chan is known for his intricate designs and craftsmanship, his one-off pieces that sell for millions of dollars, and for the Wallace Cut, or intricate 3-D engravings inside transparent gemstones. The original idea, he said, came from photography.
In the Eighties, he became intrigued with the technique of double exposure after seeing a photography exhibition, which led him to develop the Wallace Cut. He also spoke about jade, and his methods of refining and brightening it, and his work with white jade, which he said Chinese people prefer.
“Traditionally, jade has always been a symbol of virtue and rare jade pieces can be passed through generations within families.” Chan said he was inspired in particular by the tradition of parents giving jade pendants to their children, and began working on sets of jade gems, polished and reinforced with titanium.
Although he may create precious works meant to pass through generations, his own childhood was one of deprivation and isolation. At age five, he moved to Hong Kong from Fuzhou province

LVMH Ramps Up Relationship with London’s Central Saint Martins

LONDON – LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton is investing further in British fashion talent with a “major” investment in Central Saint Martins that will focus on sustainability, WWD has learned.
An announcement is expected this week.
The new investment comes after six years of collaboration between LVMH and the college, which is part of University of the Arts London and the alma mater of designers including Riccardo Tisci, Phoebe Philo, Stella McCartney, Sarah Burton, Christopher Kane, Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan.
The money will provide additional scholarships and fund an original sustainability and innovation program. Its aim is to combine imaginative ideas and creativity with the discovery of “new, holistic solutions that balance the needs of people, planet and business,” Central Saint Martins said. The value of the LVMH investment has not been disclosed.
According to the school, the program will combine “disruptive thinking and sustainable practice” to question the future of creativity in relation to challenges that face the fashion industry and wider society. “It will enable knowledge exchange between LVMH teams, CSM students and representatives, and will expand the already solid relationship between the group and the college,” CSM said.

Saint Laurent Ad Campaign Lifts Veil on Fall Men’s Collection

PARIS — Anthony Vaccarello made an impact with his reimagining of the Saint Laurent woman for his debut show for the brand in September. But with the company having opted out of showing on the Paris men’s calendar for the past two seasons, what about his vision for the Saint Laurent man?
In a WWD exclusive, the designer lifts the veil on his fall men’s collection for the house through a graphic, raw advertising campaign based on photos and collages by American artist and fashion photographer Collier Schorr, who also lensed its spring women’s campaign — and just shot the spring DKNY campaign with Bella Hadid.
In addition, the house will join the ranks of brands going coed, opting to show a selection of the fall men’s looks alongside its women’s fall collection, to be held on Feb. 28 in a former Cistercian convent, which is being renovated to house its future 100,000-square-foot headquarters.
The venue already hosted the women’s show last season, with a construction crane hoisting a giant neon sign spelling the letters YSL against the night sky.

Saint Laurent?s extraordinary taste went well beyond the world of fashion, and in this lavish volume, the eight splendid homes he shared with friend and lifelong business partner Pierre Berg? are presented in immaculate detail.

From the serene interiors of their apartment on the Rue Babylone to the incandescent beauty of the Villa Majorelle in Marrakech, Berg? and Saint Laurent?s sensibilities come alive. Taken after Saint Laurent?s death in 2008, Ivan Terestchenko?s photographs capture these exquisite surroundings in full, showcasing nineteenth-century French d?cor, important paintings by modern and Romantic artists, and masterpieces of furniture, sculpture, and silver ranging from the Renaissance to the Art Deco era.

You’ll Need More Than A Credit Card To Get Your Hands on Saint Laurent’s New Couture Collection

With price tags in the 5-digit range, couture collections are prohibitively expensive for most of us. But now, Saint Laurent is taking the already exclusive category to the next level.

Today, the French fashion house announced plans to bring back couture with “Yves Saint Laurent” Couture ivory silk label under the tutelage of designer Hedi Slimane. The house’s last couture show was in 2002 and designed by the late Yves Saint Laurent, who died in 2008.

The new collection of silky tuxedos and black column dresses will debut in Saint Laurent ads shot by Slimane next month. But shelling out tens of thousands of dollars for a look simply won’t be enough to get your hands on one. According to the brand’s chief executive, Francesca Bellettini, you’ll also need to be a “friend of the house”.

“Hedi Slimane decides these orders case by case. Unlike a couture collection, this is an even more exclusive definition,” Bellettini, told The New York Times. She also said that the collection will be available to actresses to be worn for red carpet events, such as the Oscars or the Cannes Film Festival.

We’ll keep you posted on the entire collection as it launches but, until then, we’re throwing it back to 2002—to Yves Saint Laurent’s very last couture collection, which is absolutely breathtaking.

Saint Laurent Gets LEED Certification

GREEN SHOPPING: Saint Laurent is keen on reducing its ecological footprint. The French designer label headed by Hedi Slimane scooped up LEED Platinum Certification for three of its global flagships: the Rodeo Drive women’s boutique in Beverly Hills, London’s Old Bond Street store and the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré unit in Paris.
The architectural concept originally designed by Slimane in 2012 is based on low-energy lighting, minimal water consumption and better indoor air quality. To wit: Since its reopening in 2014, the Rodeo Drive venue has decreased its energy consumption by 57 percent via a solar panels installation on the roof of the building.
LEED — Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design — is managed by the U.S. Green Building Council. According to the Saint Laurent, this is the first time a luxury brand has awarded the Council’s highest certification for multiple free-standing stores.

9 Reasons Your Mom, Our Mom, Everyone’s Mom Is A F–king Saint

Yes, it’s another “Reasons” list, but OMG it’s your own mother, for crying out loud.

Listen, if we knew what our mothers went through having us and raising us, we might opt to have not been born at all, or at least would nominate her for sainthood. Because your mom is a f–king saint. I mean, think about how much of a pain you are as an adult. Now imagine that as a child. Jeesh.

Take the time to peruse this list, and then call your mom and apologize. For everything.

Have you seen yourself eat?
Good lord, it’s like getting too close to a wood chipper. And food is expensive as hell. But your mom did her darndest to get it to the table for you everyday.

View post on imgur.com



Do you have any idea how much it cost to clothe you?
And you threw those nice clothes on the floor and wore what you wanted.

View post on imgur.com



Getting you through school was a pain in the a–.
But they found a way to get you there, and the first day of school after the summer was a well-deserved break for her.

Have a great school year parents!



But her breaks didn’t last long. Holy sh-t, do you remember teenage you?
Enough said.

View post on imgur.com



And do you listen to anyone nowadays? Imagine yourself as a snot-nosed kid.
Like when your mom asked you to mow the lawn?

This is what happens when you ask your teenage boys to rake the leaves and mow the lawn.



Smell your laundry once, and get back to us.
Exactly.

My friend sent me this saying that he discovered a new way to do his laundry. He has achieved true bachelor status.



She balanced her own awesomeness with the goal of making your life more awesome.
Skills that pay the bills.

View post on imgur.com



Your mom gave up dreams and freedoms for you.
She wanted to be a photographer, but instead settled for your poorly composed crayon drawings hanging up around her house. That was a pretty sweet horse though. At least she said it was.

a drawing i did when i was around 7



Finally, your mom loves you despite the fact that you are you.
This can’t be stressed enough: you are a deeply flawed individual — we all are. And your mother loves you regardless of that, without condition, always helping to push you to that next level. Sometimes literally.

Wounds of Love: The Mystical Marriage of Saint Rose of Lima

Wounds of Love: The Mystical Marriage of Saint Rose of Lima


The Peruvian mystic St. Rose of Lima (Isabel Flores y Oliva, 1586-1617) was canonized in 1671 as the first saint of the New World and remains the object of widespread devotion today. In this engrossing new study, Frank Graziano uses the example of St. Rose to explore the meaning of female
mysticism and the way in which saints are products of their cultures.
Virginity, austerity, eucharistic devotion, incessant mortification, and mystical marriage to Christ characterized the devotional regimen that structured St. Rose''s entire life. Many of her mystical practices echo the symptoms of such modern psychological disorders as masochism, depression,
hysteria, and anorexia nervosa. Graziano offers a sophisticated argument not only for the origins and meaning of these behaviors in Rose''s case, but also for the reason her culture venerated them as signs of sanctity. In the process he explores a wide range of themes, from the idea of suffering as
an expression of love to the assimilation of childhood trauma through religious repetition.
Graziano also offers a penetrating analysis of the politics of Rose''s canonization. He finds that her mystical union with God–bypassing the institutional channels of sacrament and priestly mediation–was inherently subversive to the bureaucratized Church. Canonization was a cooptation by which
Rose''s competing claim to Christ was integrated into the Catholic canon.
The book concludes with a fascinating exploration of mystical eroticism, with its intense experiences of vision and ecstasy. The eroticized suffering of many mystics is shown to be very human in origin: the mystic''s wounded love is projected onto a God conceived to accommodate it.
Wounds of Love is based on a decade of research in archives, rare books, and an extraordinary range of secondary sources. Introducing an innovative method that integrates history, cultural studies, psychoanalysis, and clinical psychology, this compelling work offers a bold new interpretation of
female mysticism.
