Yves Saint Laurent Bright Floral Print Blue Silk Dress, 1980s

About

This lovely dress is similar to another blue print one I have in the shop but this one is a little more casual and fun that the more formal secretary style of the other. I really love this one and think its quite wonderful. Prints and Yves Saint Laurent were always the perfect combination and on this little fine silk dress his prints are shown to its full advantage. A riot of multi-colored, bright flowers are scattered 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 V neckline and the top of the dress softly blouses. It skims over the torso to a defined and seamed waist and then the skirt falls in a slim column to just below the knee. You could easily cinch in the waist more with a belt and in doing so you can change the length of the skirt if you wished it a little shorter. It is very pretty and I am sure this print was used in some of the ad campaigns so don't be surprised if it ends up being dated before it's sold, or that you get an email from me one day with that information if you are the girl who snatches this beauty up. Excellent condition Unlined and closes with a side metal and nylon, fine zipper. Elastic at the sleeves cuffs. Appears unworn. Sleeves: 22" Shoulders: 15" Bust: 20-21" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 13.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 19.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 16" from neck to waist Skirt: 31.5" from waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free.
