1970s Yves Saint Laurent Gypsy Skirt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is an exceptional seventies long layered gypsy skirt with the Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Paris label. The original Saint Laurent boutique opened in Paris in 1966 and I believe this to be from about 1970 or so based on the style and the label. It is a spectacular skirt made of a soft, almost fine flannel like brushed cotton on a pretty blue printed hue. The cut is amazing - fine flat seams are worked around the upper hip that open into the fullness of the skirt below. I a tiered ruffle finished the top payer and a second tier with a paisley design sits underneath! It is the ultimate hippie bohemian jet set piece! Excellent, appears unworn condition

Waist: 13-14” from side seam to side seam
Hips: open
Total length: 34” from waist to hem

Unlined soft brushed cotton. It closes with a side metal zipper and large flat, hidden metal kook & eye at the waist.

Modern Sizing equivalent: XS-SML (4-small waisted 8)
