Biography

French entrepreneur, industrialist and patron, born to a father who worked for the tax office. Bergé is widely known as Yves Saint-Laurent's partner. Left winger, he sponsored Ségolène Royal as candidate for President in 2007.

Bergé met Yves Saint Laurent in 1958. They became romantically involved and together launched Yves Saint Laurent Couture House in 1961. The couple split amicably in 1976 and remained lifelong friends and business partners. Yves Saint Laurent died on 1 June 2008.

In 1992, Bergé sold shares of the fashion house just before the company released a poor economic report. In 1996, this action was deemed to be insider trading and he was sentenced to a fine of one million Francs. After the close of the Couture house, Bergé became president of the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation.

Bergé died of myopathy on 8 September 2017 in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence at the age of 86. He is survived by his husband, landscape architect Madison Cox, whom Bergé married in March 2017.
