LES ARTS DECORATIFS PRESENTS “TENUE CORRECTE EXIGEÉ!”

By Crash redaction

DISCOVER “TENUE CORRECTE EXIGEÉ! QUAND LE VETEMENT FAIT SCANDALE,” AN EXHIBITION CURATED BY LES ARTS DECORATIFS

Paris museum Les Arts Décoratifs presents “Tenue Correcte Exigée! Quand le vêtement fait scandale,” an expansive exhibition revolving around the biggest scandals in fashion. The show is divided into several parts, each highlighting a turning point in the history of fashion from the fourteenth century to present. With over three hundred pieces on display, visitors drift from men’s skirts to baggy jeans among the range of transgressive pieces that were deemed too shocking for their eras: too short, too long, too high, too large, too transparent, too slinky, too creased. All these themes are explained and illustrated through strong and iconic pieces, such as extra-large skirts and pants by Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto, extravagant Haute Couture dresses by Thierry Mugler, and André Courrèges mini-skirts. The exhibition concludes by taking a close look at the most scandalous fashion shows ever, including John Galliano’s take on homeless fashion for Dior’s 2000 Haute Couture collection and Rick Owens’ unveiling of the masculine anatomy for his 2015 menswear show. No question here of the relative convenience of the clothing on display, instead the point is to understand how clothes can change society’s vision and deliver a strong message.
