“Tenue correcte exigée, quand le vêtement fait scandale” in Paris

Every age, every season has its fashions, but in the street or in parliament, at work or at play, everything wear is subject to rules. And of course those rules are there to be broken. “Tenue correcte exigée, quand le vêtement fait scandale” revisits the scandals that have marked the great turning points in fashion history from the 14th century to today.

All challenged vestimentary norms and were savagely criticised, even banned when they first appeared.
