1970's Yves Saint Laurent Navy-Blue Chiffon Grecian Goddess Angel-Sleeves Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Breathtaking navy-blue pure silk-chiffon two piece dress 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 playful Grecian angel-sleeves and the easy-to-wear silhouette. The dress has a nipped-waist with draped skirt design. The over blouse is completely sheer and "light as a feather". It is wearable and comfortable, yet has its own avant-garde elements.

"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."
