1979 Yves Saint Laurent Haute-Couture Navy Silk & Satin Kimono Sash Wrap Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Breathtaking Yves Saint Laurent designer dress from his 1979 collection. Such a rarity to find both pieces together! It is insanely chic with its easy-to-wear wrapped construction. The fabric is a rich navy-blue woven silk complete with liquid satin trimming. I adore the low-cut plunge bodice and broadly-cut cuffed kimono sleeves. He then uses an ingenious gathered technique by the shoulders that gives the garment so much depth and texture. The flattering belted wrap construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This beautiful garment is timeless and classic, yet has its own avant-garde elements.
