1970's Yves Saint Laurent Black White Butterfly Novelty-Print Silk Peasant Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Gorgeous Yves Saint Laurent black and white butterfly novelty-print silk dress from the infamous Rive Gauche collection during the mid-1970's. Pieces from this decade are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. I adore the low-cut plunge scoopneck bodice complete with billow-sleeves that can be worn off the shoulder if desired. The garment comes with a matching sash-belt for perfect fit, which shows his amazing attention to detail. The chic swing skirt with flounce hemline is incredible flattering! It is wearable and comfortable, yet has its own avant-garde elements.

"In the mid-1970s the relevance of haute couture was seriously debated. The political and social upheaval of the 1960s, the emergence of a plethora of creative ready-to-wear designers, and the increasing preference for a sportswear approach to dressing as represented by American fashion were among the shifts in lifestyles and taste that appeared to sound the death knell of the calcified and elitist world of the maisons de couture. It was at this time that Yves Saint Laurent, haute couture’s preeminent practitioner, threw caution to the prevailing winds with a collection of unrivaled fantasy and luxury."
