In 1961, thanks to his first autumn-winter fall collection nicknamed Slim Look, he announced the era of a woman dressed without shackle. "The silhouette is supple, thin, the shoulders are natural, the waist undulates, the hips are very flat, the skirts flare gently in a lively movement and stop just after the birth of the knee", details the press release from this collection. The last picture shows Mr. Bohan with a similar dress.
