1970s Yves Saint Laurent Peasant Ruffle Skirt & Top Set

About

This stunning Yves Saint Laurent set clearly illustrates his love and fascination with all things gypsy, bohemian and peasant in feel while the color and fabric seem to give a nod to his famous love of color. This is like the perfect melding of the two ideas in one. It is actually two pieces plus a tie sash belt, which gives it endless styling potential. The skirt is three stunning tones in cotton with a polished finish and the fabric choice gives it some weight and shape. It is constructed of three tiers of fabric, each a different color. These gradually widen to create the volume through the skirt that you see. I love the ruffled effect that this creates. The top and belt are made of the same fabric and color as the last tier of the skirt. This both creates balance and also gives the set the feel of a true dress when they are worn together. The sleeves are incredible - each is very very full above the elastic cuff. The top is cut to sit wide off the shoulders which really give it a bit of that famous YSL sexiness. It is an amazing and dramatic set! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Both the top and skirt are unlined. The skirt closes at the side with a painted zipper and flat hook and eye. The top slips on and has elastic at each cuff. Both are tagged a vintage YSL 34. The original belt is present
