Yves Saint Laurent: The Scandal Collection offers a behind-the-scenes look at the designer's influential 1971 collection that “drew fire in the fashion world”—from the collection’s inspiration to the press coverage that followed. 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’s ugliest collection,” while ultimately leading to the “retro” trend that quickly conquered the streets. Beautifully illustrated and documented with well-researched essays, this book is enriched with personal interviews and archival photographs of the show, the models, the designs, and the textile and print samples, as well as sketches and international press clippings.
