About

An incredible piece of fashion history, this ‘Patron Originale’ dress designed by Yves Saint Laurent for his autumn/winter 1969 runway collection featured on the catwalk as look number 39. Constructed of silver and gold silk lurex by Brossin de Mere, the dress features crystal embroidery by the house of Mesrine. The unusual press-stud fastenings under the bust create an empire line silhouette, while the plunging neckline adds allure. The perfect choice for a red carpet event, this dress is a simply stunning example of Saint Laurent’s work.

Yves Saint Laurent and his haute couture house are forever associated with Paris and the prodigious talent of Saint Laurent is legendary. First spotted by Christian Dior when only 19 years old, at 21 Saint Laurent was the head of Dior and went on to create his own highly successful haute couture house in his early twenties.
