1970s Print & Velvet Yves Saint Laurent Peasant Top & Skirt

This amazing two piece set by Yves Saint Laurent combines his love of velvet with the bright true colors he was able to produce using his signature challis fabric. The set consists of a stunning, voluminous pheasant gypsy style top and a fabulously cut and innovative skirt. Both pieces are printed with one of Yves signature prints and I love the teal blue mixed with the pops of color anchored by the black on the skirt. The top is spectacular and a collectible in its own right. You can wear it loose and peasant style or it will blouse when tucked as I have shown here. The sleeves are cut just past the elbow and each is very very full with a ruffle at the cuff and elastic just above. The neck is is also ruffled and cut high with a deep buttons front. It has its original tie around the neck as well. The skirt is genius with a fitted cut around the hip and that fabulous panel of inky black velvet that further defines the hip and makes you look pin-thin but curvy and adds that interesting angular line. Below the skirt flares out in a pretty swing of fabric. Being two pieces it is very versatile and you will be able to wear these together or separate. Excellent, appears unworn condition

Both pieces are unlined. The skirt closes with a side zipper and hook and eye at the waist. The top slips on to wear and buttons down the neck. Note that this is more of a teal blue in person then then true blue it photoed as. If you are familar with YSl and his use of this fabric then you will know the color as it is one of his signature hues.
