Tenue correcte exigée: Quand le vêtement fait scandale

Musée des Arts décoratifs, Paris

– 23 April 2017



Be it women in trousers, men in skirts, contouches or baggy pants: fashions change. They change according to century, season and place but factors such as origins and religion also play a decisive role. After all, as we know, rules exist to be broken, and in this spirit, the Parisian exhibition “Tenue correcte exigée: Quand le vêtement fait scandale” [Dress codes: when clothing creates scandal] is dedicated to scandal in fashion.


The Musée des Arts décoratifs exhibits more than 400 articles of clothing and accessories as well as portraits, caricatures and objects, from the 14th century until today, that have created a stir. The exhibition focuses on three particular areas: “Dresscodes”, “Girl or Boy?”  and “Provocative Excess”. The exhibition design is by the French artist Constance Guisset and curated by Denis Bruna, who edited “Fashioning the Body: An Intimate History of the Silhouette”.
