1977 Yves Saint Laurent Black Jersey Gold-Links Plunge Grecian Goddess Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Seductive black rayon-jersey evening gown from the infamous Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche collection of 1977. Pieces from this decade are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. I love the breathtaking gold hardware links plunging bodice! The gathered nipped waist really flatters the figure and the flowing maxi skirt adds the perfect amount of drama. It is classic and modern, 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."
