Yves Saint Laurent 1971 – The Scandal Collection
The Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent presents an exhibition dedicated to Yves Saint Laurent‘s spring-summer 1971 haute couture collection. “Liberation” or “Forties” collection, which was inspired by the fashion of the war years. Short dresses, platform shoes, square shoulders, and exaggerated makeup were the references to occupied Paris that caused a scandal. The collection, which was heavily criticized by the press, gave full sway to the retro trend that quickly ended up conquering the street.

Folie Richter by MVRDV Architects
Since the 18th Century, the follies of Montpellier have been markers for the architectural history of the city. The Follies helped to add new ways of living, new features, new programs in the city, giving it a significant value and broadening its appeal for both residents and visitors. Follies of the 21st Century are an opportunity to affirm the centrally metropolitan Montpellier while reaffirming its commitment to creativity, innovation and architectural audacity, forming new urban landmarks whilst providing added value to the city.

SINIESTRO collection by Giga Gonzalez
“SINIESTRO”, the inspiration of this collection was how the Romanticism retakes the Gothic and transforms it with a darker and gloomy essence, but without losing that touch of elegance.

In the Time of Klimt, The Vienna Secession | Pinacothèque de Paris
The Pinacothèque de Paris, in partnership with Arthemisia Group and 24 ORE Cultura – Gruppo 24 ORE, wishes to examine once again an essential aspect of Art Nouveau, which was developed in Vienna at the start of the 20th century under the name Secession. Gustav Klimt‘s part in the emerging of that movement is a major one.
