Breathtaking Yves Saint Laurent ruby-red crepe and satin 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 square-neck heavily pleated peasant bodice. The beautiful sleeves can be worn down or pushed up for a gorgeous billow effect. The flattering baby-doll swing skirt silhouette has tons of sublime movement with every turn. This is the type of garment you will reach for anytime you want to look and feel amazing! "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:35-36 inches Hips:up to 44 inches Sleeve Length:25 inches Total Length:40 inches This Yves Saint Laurent designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back-buttons. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
