The Scandalous Seventies

YSL Spring/Summer 1971 Sketches

In 1971, Yves Saint Laurent’s Libération/Quarante collection outraged Paris.  But it’s soon to be celebrated at the city’s Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent Fondation.

And a quick look at some of the ‘scandalous’ pieces from that collection reveals that they’ve proved to be a key source of inspiration this spring/summer for Hedi Slimane, the house’s new creative director…

Images and sketches as well as original pieces from the 1971 collection will be on display from 19th March to 19th July.
