Early 1970s Yves Saint Laurent Wrap Print Skirt & Top Set
This amazing two piece set by Yves Saint Laurent is from an early collection in the 1970s and combines his love of print and color that he was able to produce using his signature wool challis fabric. The set is especially fabulous and both pieces are an easy fitting, body hugging wrap design. Each is also printed with one of Yves signature prints and I love the strong use of color that the print gives the set. The base is a deep navy and onto that are little mod feeling medallions in teal, coral and white. The top is spectacular. It wraps to close with long attached ties at the waist. The sleeves are cut slim with cuffed wrists. The neck line can be adjusted to wear it higher or lower depending on how tight you tie and wrap it. The skirt is also genius with a pretty swing of fabric and wide set flat pleats all around. It also wraps over itself and hooks to close at the waist. Being two pieces it is very versatile and you will be able to wear these together or separate. Excellent condition
Both pieces are unlined. The skirt wraps to close with snaps and hook & eye at the waist. Note my client moved the closures over to make the waist smaller. You can easily move them to get more room if needed (probably up to about 4" even). The top slips on to wear and wraps to close with long attached ties at the waist. If you are familiar with YSL and his use of this fabric then you will know the color and print are one of his signature hues and that this is from one of the earlier collections of the 1970s. Both pieces are tagged 42 and I have given a range of sizes due to the waist note above.
