1978 Yves Saint Laurent Haute-Couture Ivory Red Print Silk Peasant Dress & Shawl

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Breathtaking Yves Saint Laurent designer dress ensemble from his 1978 Spring/Summer collection. Such a rarity to find all three pieces together! It is insanely chic with "light as a feather" red clover print ivory dotted silk. The bodice has elegant button-shoulder detail and short puff-sleeves. I adore the matching ruffle trim shawl wrap which is a stunning statement piece on it's own. The flattering belted wrap construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This beautiful ensemble is timeless and classic, yet has its own avant-garde elements.

Measurements
Bust:38-39 inches
Waist:28 inches
Hips:up to 40 inches
Total Length:46 inches

This vintage Yves Saint Lauren numbered 42072 Haute-Couture ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips or holes. Perfectly working hand-set side metal Eclair zipper. Only sign of age is some minor underarm discolor which are not noticeable when worn. All hand-finished and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value!
