When Fashion Shows Were Psychedelic Happenings

Julie Gerstein / August 4, 2013

This is a short glimpse at 1971 Yves St. Laurent fashion show in Paris for which St. Laurent, who was wildly ahead of his time in most respects, booked the Jean-Claude Vannier’s psych rock band L’efant Assassin des Mouches to keep time for the runway models. Vannier was also known as one of Serge Gainsbourg’s most successful collaborators. I love the druggy, dreamy look and feel of this clip. [YouTube]
