1970s Yves Saint Laurent Red Silk Silk Top w Tie Neck
This beautiful silk blouse is a classic from Yves Saint Laurent. It is an amazing color and print combination - a gorgeous plaid down in vibrant red and a deep blue on a fine silk. It has that signature Yves Saint Laurent tie at the neck. Each sleeve is cut to puff slightly above the two button cuff. The attached tie at the neck sits above a lower set neckline so when you tie it you get a glimpse of skin under the bow. It is set so that it extends out from the collar itself with no unbroken line at the back of the neck. The ties hang with one set a touch longer then the other the front so that when it is tied you get the same length ends falling from the bow. The combination of the tie at the neck and the high end silk used as the fabric really makes for a dynamic result. The silk is a beautiful, rich weighted silk that drapes wonderfully. This is a true 1970s version and hard to find. Excellent condition.
Unlined and buttons down the front. Each cuff also buttons to close with two buttons. Attached tie at neck. Tagged a vintage YSL 40 but is generous in sizing so should fit a range of sizes. Note that the red is brighter in person then how it photoed
