1970s Yves Saint Laurent Peasant Top and Skirt Set

This stunning Yves Saint Laurent set clearly illustrates his love and fascination with all things gypsy, bohemian and peasant in feel while the color and fabric seem to give a nod to his famous safari collections. This is like the perfect melding of the two ideas in one. It is actually two pieces  plus a tie sash belt, which gives it endless styling potential. The skirt is a khaki cotton with a polished finish and the fabric choice gives it some weight and shape. It has an elastic waist for an easy to wear feel and is constructed of three tiers of fabric. These gradually widen to create the volume through the skirt that you see. I love the ruffled effect that this creates. The top and belt are made of the same fabric giving it a dress feel when they are worn together. Here I have left the top untucked and then cinched in the waist to show you the cut, but you could also tuck for a more stream lined look. The sleeves are incredible - each is very very full above the elastic cuff. The top can sit on or off the shoulders which really give it a bit of that YSL sexiness. It is an amazing and dramatic set! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Both pieces are unlined. The skirt has an elastic waist and slips on. The top slips on and has elastic as each cuff. The top is tagged a vintage 42. There is no label on the skirt. Original matching fabric sash belt
