Why the fashion of the 50s fascinates us?
What do the 50s represent in fashion? Almost everything. Or not far. Golden Age of haute couture, they see the beginnings of ready-to-wear, the most mythical silhouettes (such Chanel suit, in 1954). They continue the path traced by a certain New Look Christian Dior in 1947, attend the birth of future gods of fashion, Yves Saint Laurent in mind. The Palais Galliera devotes an exhibition to them.
Astonishing as this decade fascinates us.
