Saint Laurent collectable black iridescent velvet evening dress. Circa 1970s

$1,785.76

About

Yves Saint Laurent said “ I love black because it affirms, designs, and styles. A woman in a black dress is a pencil stroke”. Black liquid velvet material features with discretion , simplicity and refinement in the designer’s opulent and iconic collections. The 1976 “Opera Collection “ for example displays amazing luxurious velvet from high fashion fabric created by Italian house Gandini. This beautiful 1970s evening dress is pure Yves Saint Laurent. The designer lexicon of style is seen in the simplicity and refinement of the garment. Iridescent silk velvet material probably by the French house Châtillon Mouly emphasises the luxury and elegance of the dress whilst keeping it modern and discreet. The bodice is constructed in a wrap around style fastening with a series of press studs reminiscent of dress made during the 1800s. Black silk taffeta ruffles frames the neckline into a V-shaped and decorates both cuffs. Small zips close the sleeves and the dress on the left side.
