About

Breathtaking Yves Saint Laurent colorful Navajo southwestern print silk dress from the infamous Rive Gauche collection during the late 1970's. Pieces from this decade are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. The bodice has a beautiful ruffled flounce collar and chic bell-sleeve cuffs. I adore the hourglass nipped-waist which is very figure flattering. The heavily pleated swing skirt has tons of sublime movement with every turn.

"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."
