1980s Yves Saint Laurent Blue & Brights Silk Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Prints and Yves Saint Laurent were always the perfect combination and on this darling little fine, silk dress that is shown to its full advantage. A riot of multi-colored, bright abstract designs are strewn over its surface. The cut is pure YSL - the dress has fabulously full sleeves that puff out to just below the elbow. The bodice is cut loose and easy with a high neckline and softly blouses over the bust. It skims over the torso with a full cut through the waist and a dropped band with an attached tie and then the skirt flares out under that in the prettiest of ways. You can wear it lose and easy or cinch in the waist more with the tie - this also allows you to change the length of the skirt (I have shown it looser and low on the hip here). A second attached tie at the neck finishes the dress perfectly. Excellent, appears unworn condition

Unlined and closes down the front with buttons. It is tagged a vintage YSL 34 but the loose and easy but will allow it to work on larger sizes as well
