Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture chantilly lace and chiffon evening gown, c.1970

About

Hate Couture Yves Saint Laurent dress (Autumn - Winter 1970 - 1971) An exquisite and extremely rare piece of haute couture by Yves Saint Laurent from the extremely scandalous Autumn - Winter 1970 - 1971 collection. Yves Saint Laurent was a designer who moved with the times and in some cases defined eras of fashion, the 1970s was definitely his decade and this dress completely embodies everything YSL women crave for, billowing bishop sleeves, chantilly lace thrills and subtle sexiness with sheer delicate chiffons. The dress is a haute couture and was hand-made in the Yves Saint Laurent atelier in Paris, it would of been made for a very special client or friend of the designer, not many of the dresses from this collection have survived nor were a lot ever made, it is extremely rare to find one in such pristine condition like this one.
