About

Seductive Yves Saint Laurent designer ruby-red and black two piece cotton dress ensemble from his iconic 1976 "Carmen" collection. Pieces from this decade are very desirable and are true examples of fashion history. Such a rarity to find both pieces together! The alurring bodice has a sculpted sweetheart low-cut plunge corest-ties front. The matching peasant skirt has flirty pom-pom trim which is typical of this period for him and instantly recognizable. This rich peasant collection stirred so much interest that the Paris show was restaged in New York for his American admirers. "The clothes incorporated all my dreams," he said after the show, "all my heroines in the novels, the operas, the paintings. It was my heart — everything I love that I gave to this collection."
