Principal photography began in June 2013. Part of the filming was done with Berg, who sent "out models on the runway for a reconstitution of Saint Laurent"?s famous Opra Ballets Russes collection of 1976, which was filmed at the fashions show"?s original venue, the Westin hotel (formerly known as the InterContinental.)" Berg"?s foundation loaned the film "77 vintage outfits from its archives and allowed Lespert to film certain scenes at its headquarters on Avenue Marceau in Paris." Berg "praised Lespert"?s film"?based largely on a Laurence Benam biography of Saint Laurent and Berg"?s reminiscences in his book Letters to Yves"?for showing the designer"?s demons." Berg said "...there are details I don"?t like, but that is of no importance whatsoever. You have to take the movie as it is"?as a whole."
