1970's Yves Saint Laurent Black & White Stripe Cotton Off-Shoulder Belted Dress

About

Breathtaking Yves Saint Laurent black and white striped cotton sundress from the infamous Rive Gauche collection during the mid-1970's. Pieces from this decade are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. I adore the low-cut plunge off-shoulder peasant bodice. The stunning sleeves can be worn down or pushed up for a gorgeous billow peasant effect. The hourglass belted nipped-waist swing skirt has tons of sublime movement with every turn. You do not easily find this level of workmanship on garments today and this beauty is a timeless classic for any modern event! "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." Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Waist: Hips: Sleeve Length:15 inches Total Length:20 inches This YSL designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
