Exhibition: Yves Saint Laurent, Paris

A new exhibition at the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent shines the spotlight on the late couturier’s infamous 1971 collection, which was inspired by the Forties. Curated by Olivier Saillard, director of the fashion museum at Palais Galliera, the show features 40 outfits from Saint Laurent’s spring couture line, which caused a scandal because of its perceived vulgarity and its references to a dark chapter of history, the Nazi Occupation of Paris during World War II. “Yves Saint Laurent 1971, La collection du scandale,” runs through July 19, also features accessories, sketches, film footage of the show and magazine spreads by the likes of Helmut Newton.
