The interior of the new multi-level Dior store is an essence of Paris style: the combination of 18th century elements with modern elements reminiscent of an elegant Parisian apartment with an Eiffel tower view.

VOYAGE

The retrospective of «The Scandal Collection» Spring-Summer 1971 was opened in Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent. Visitors can see 40 original pieces of Yves Saint Laurent’s haute couture collection, images and sketches and try to understand why it was so provocative.
“What do I want? To shock people, to force them to think,” – explained Yves Saint Laurent to the press which criticized the haute couture collection and called it “fashion faux pas”. On January 29, 1971, he presented the “Liberation” collection, which was inspired by the fashion of the war years, when Paris was under the Nazi Occupation. Short dresses, wedges, squared shoulders, knee-length skirts and exaggerated makeup – 80 designs worn by six models caused such a scandal that Yves Saint Laurent had to take a break before he could present a new collection.
The exhibition curator Olivier Saillard notes “the press, which saw in him the only legitimate heir to the great tradition of French haute couture, could not forgive him the squared shoulders, knee-length skirts, and wedged shoes which were reminders of the years of deprivation and restriction through which most of them had lived.”
”The “Liberation” collection brought down the walls separating haute couture from ready-to-wear and gave a way to a retro trend. Nowadays when we speak about 70’s fashion we remember this haute couture Spring-Summer 1971. Its elements are found in modern designs too: “lips” print, colored fur, wedges, etc.
This exhibition proves: what shock us today and seems strange at first glance may become an example to follow tomorrow. Never scold the things you don’t understand! The exhibition works till July 19.

Tops and blouses are much important than pants and skirts during the shootings of «Fashion verdict» TV-show on Channel One Russia. It is because the presenters are sitting most of the time.
