About

Breathtaking Yves Saint Laurent designer dress from his 1965 collection. Haute-Couture pieces from this decade are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. The fabric is a heavenly French black embroidered illusion Alencon net-lace. He then uses an ingenious soutache technique that gives the garment so much depth and texture. The bodice has a chic velvet tuxedo-bow collar with lean, long origami-ruffle cuff sleeves. The flattering A-line skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This beautiful cocktail dress is timeless and classic, yet has its own avant-garde elements.
