Yves Saint Laurent long layered Paisley gypsy skirt, Fall Winter 1976


The new freedom of expression in the fashion of the 1960s continued in the 1970s. Yves Saint Laurent’s 1976 Spring/Summer Russian collection was colorful, lively and bright. Several styles co-existed. For example, Saint Laurent famously adapted the Roma skirt for his iconic collection. This reflected the hippie counterculture embracing a comfortable, loose fitting and optimistic style of dressing. This paisley Roma skirt from the Rive Gauche collection is without doubt a piece of fashion history. Constructed from a beautifully soft brushed cotton material. Featuring a paisley print designed by Liberty of London. This three layered skirt fastens with a zip and hook closure on the side. Stylist notes This gypsy-inspired skirt was designed to be worn with an Yves Saint Laurent cotton front laced-up corset. But worn with a crisp white cotton shirt it will give an elegant and romantic look.
