#12 the rebel




The 1970s are protest years for Flower Power where women’s bodies are released. In the field of fashion and lingerie, it is also a revolution! Elastane fibers, such as Lycra ©, become more popular and allow fabrics and laces to embody unprecedented properties of elasticity and adherence to body curves. Lace-makers integrate this new fiber into their ranges. Festive and eccentric from the point of view of color, lace exhibits oversized floral patterns and even Cornely pearl embroidery and sparkles to fit the Disco spirit. On the sidelines of this extravagance, the era sees the advent of a feminine empowerment that begins with a masculinization of the silhouette thanks to Yves Saint-Laurent’s tuxedo in 1966, which is perpetuated in tight leather, latex and skai to showcase an independent woman who steps out of line.
The theme of the courageous, modern and emancipated woman appears on the big and the small screens. In the series The Avengers (1961-1979) the character of Emma Peel, a secret agent who is not hard on the eyes, is often presented in black sheathed outfits. In the same vein, Eartha Kitt plays Catwoman in the Batman series. In France, Brigitte Bardot opens the decade on the poster for Petroleous (1971), a Western parody where four sisters form a band of outlaws, inspiring the creation of the cartoon character Barbarella, later taken up in the film by Jane Fonda.
