Yves Saint Laurent
The Scandal Collection 1971Book - 2017
On January 21, 1971, couturier Yves Saint Laurent presented his Spring-Summer haute couture collection. Inspired by the garments of the war years, the collection included short dresses, platform shoes, square shoulders, and exaggerated makeup. The show caused an outrage among the public, the critics, and the press alike, earning it the title of "Paris' Ugliest Collection." Nevertheless, the haute couture designs of the runway made their way to the boulevards, giving full sway to the trend, and quickly conquered the streets.

I'm waiting for my copy to come in, but I'm sure it'll be an interesting book. "Le Smoking", anyone?
