>> INSIDER WIRE —To say art collection was a love affair for Yves Saint Laurent would be an understatement.  He amassed 800 some-odd lots that Christie's will be auctioning in February — with an estimated $400 million return — including two drama-inducing Qing-dynasty bronze heads (the Chinese government considers them stolen; YSL's partner Pierre Berge told them he would gladly return the imperial pieces to China for $60 million).  YSL and Berge amassed so much because they “decided in five minutes” and “never questioned the price of anything,” according to one dealer they worked with.  They got to the point where a Degas had to be hung next to the toilet.  But the collection was an obsession — before one of Yves's last runway shows, he came to a dealer in desperation: “He was in terrible shape. He could hardly speak.  Yves said, ‘I’m so stressed! I’m out of ideas! I need to see beautiful things!’ And he left with two gold boxes in his pocket. He absolutely needed them as a fix.”  A visual tour of the goods. [Vanity Fair]
