1987 Yves Saint Laurent Haute-Couture Mocha Brown Silk Strapless Sculpted Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Breathtaking Yves Saint Laurent Haute-Couture gown from his iconic 1987 spring-summer collection. It is insanely chic with its unique architectural wrapped construction. The fabric is a luxurious mocha brown silk-crepe complete with inner boned corset. I adore the low-cut plunge sweetheart ruched strapless bodice. He then uses an ingenious draping technique that gives the garment so much depth and texture. The flattering nipped waist emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This beautiful garment is timeless and classic, yet has its own avant-garde elements.
