Important Documented Vintage Yves Saint Laurent c 1981 Black Velvet + Lace Dress

About

Important documented YSL 'Rive Gauche' black silk velvet balloon style bubble Babydoll dress! Documented in the main Yves Saint Laurent ad campaign in 1981 (see photos of same dress in different color). Luscious black silk velvet, with black silk French lace at front and back collar, and at sleeves. Sleeves feature buttons down the cuff, for a chic fitted look. Has an updated Victorian feel, and looks simply sensational on all shapes and sizes! Only Saint Laurent could design a beautiful dress like this, that can easily be worn by a significant variety of sizes, and still look absolutely amazing on! Fabric drapes the curves, no matter what size you are. Full body, with a tapered hem. Couture quality. Original owner worked for YSL in the 80s, and originally purchased to wear to a holiday party. She was also looking forward to wearing it when pregnant the following holiday season. However, the dress (along with the YSL burgundy dress and bolero set in my 1stDibs Shop, from the same collection) was misplaced in her fur vault, and was not found until last year. This would also look fantastic as a maternity dress! Made in France. In great, unworn condition. Approximately Size XS - Large Measurements: Up to 78 inch bust Up to 62 inch waist Up to 66 inch hips 40 inches from top shoulder to hem
