1970s One Shoulder Yves Saint Laurent Silk Dress Set

A really spectacular set by Yves Saint Laurent done is a brilliant array of colors on black silk. This is a glorious two piece skirt and top set constructed of black silk with a bright abstract shell design strewn across its surface. It is almost weightless and yet constructed so that it drapes on the body perfectly. The skirt is a faux wrap style with an elastic waist and panel of silk wrapping across itself at the front. The top is stunning and very sexy - it has just a single shoulder, leaving the other bare and the bodice is entirely cut on the bias leaving it lose around the waist with a slight flare out at the hip. Once tucked in it looks like one single piece but because it is two you could potentially break it up and wear the pieces separate as well! Museum quality. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Both pieces are unlined and slip on. The skirt has an elastic waist and the top slips over the head with an attached tie at the top of the single shoulder. Because of the bias cut silk and elasic at the waist this will fit a range of sizes
