1970s Yves Saint Laurent Dot Dress & Belt

Quintessential YSL day wear, this dress has all the elements that YSL was famous for. I love the dots - they are that perfect red screened onto a white silk crepe base. The skirt is cut to skim the hips and hug your the lower waist in flat set seamed pleats, before those pleats open to give the skirt just a touch of volume. The bodice is also cut to skim and sit loosely over the bodice with shoulders that are gathered along the seams for a touch of the forties. Each sleeve puffs slightly above the wrist and cuff. The neckline is plunges quite low and it topped by wide attached ties at the neckline which you can then style as you wish. As an extra treat, the original leather two tone belt is present and you can use this to cinch and define the waist even further! It is beautiful and highly collectible. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a side painted metal zipper. Each cuff has a button to close. It has its original leather belt  that is also in excellent condition. The belt will fit a 25" - 28.5" waist.
