shrimptoncouture Paloma Picasso in a Yves Saint Laurent dress from the famous 'Scandal' collection of 1971......When this 80 piece collection debuted in Paris that January in 1971, it was heavily criticized as its inspiration came from street styles of what was at the time a Nazi-occupied Paris.

This collection, was titled "Libération" and also "Quarante" ("Forty"). Very short dresses, chunky, high platform heels, square shoulders and bold makeup walked down the runway and sent shockwaves through the fashion world. Especially as this was presented as a Couture collection. Up until then couture was very very safe and conservative and no one could come to terms with this expression of sexuality strutting down a Paris Haute Couture catwalk. Journalists refused to write about the collection as they felt it brought back the memories of those horrid war years for many. One headline accused Yves of 'The Floozy Look'

In the March issue of French Vogue Yves said of his collection "What do I want? To shock people, to force them to think" To French Elle he said "I prefer to shock rather then bore through repetition" and "people want to stand out and put on a performance like a star"

The tie in to Paloma is that she was the inspiration to Yves for the entire show. She loved the forties and collected and wore pieces from the era far before the concept of 'vintage' was even thought of. Yves took this as his start point and made the forties glamorous when, at the time they were thought of as anything else but. So really it's a story about how vintage, the fabulous women who wear it, and the past, have always been important in fashion
