I have been in Palais de Chaillot hundreds of times and never saw the "Musée national de la Marine"! I was walking today in Trocadéro and stumbled at the big billboard about the exposition "Les marins font la mode" and decided to check it.
I was really surprised with this museum! There's plenty of interesting things to see there! It's a shame that I had only 4 pictures left in my Polaroid...
The exposition explains how the Navy influenced fashion and culture.
If you are in Paris now, you should definitely go visit it! (The exposition will be over on the 26th july!!!)
It was really difficult to decide what to photograph for the blog... since there have been so many lovely navy dresses from Balenciaga, Yohji Yamamoto, Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel, Christian Dior... my favorite was the white Haute Couture dress by Yves Saint Laurent from the S/S collection 1966.
P.S. Avoid photographing with flash in front of the security!
