1970s Floral Yves Saint Laurent Maxi Dress

Shockingly fabulous is what you think when you see this Yves Saint Laurent maxi dress! I love the simplicity of the cut that allows the brilliant floral print to shine. Made of a simple silk crepe fabric, it is cut masterfully with an unusual seaming just under the shoulders and pretty sleeves that have just a touch of pouf above their snapped cuffs. The body is cut long and lean and gently widens as it nears the floor. This creates this beautiful, simple silhouette that is very flattering. The base is a black which allows the brilliance of the large blossoms to pop against it. Absolutely fabulous and a brilliant example of Yves' work! Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a black silky rayon. It closes with a very fine, black metal, hand set zipper. Each cuff has hidden snaps to close.
