1970s Yves Saint Laurent Black Cotton Tuxedo Shirt

This beautiful and elaborate blouse was produced by Yves Saint Laurent and is a true treasure. The top is amazing and a classic Yves Saint Laurent cut and silhouette. It is made of a light cotton that has a subtle linear pattern woven through the fabric that is just slightly trasnparent. It feels stupendous on - light and easy but with enough structure that it maintains its shape and formal feel. I love this mix of the formal cut with the not formal fabric - typical YSL genius. The top is cut to be slightly fitted and the sleeves slightly voluminous above their pretty ruffled cuffs. The shoulders are gathered at the top with a slight, refined cap, an almost "dandy" feel, and I love the play on the tuxedo shirt that it has with the curved panels of ruffles that run down the front and up and around the neck. An attached tie in a matching fabric only adds to the magnificence. It is truly a brilliant piece that is endlessly versatile. A masterpiece. In excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with hidden buttons at the front. Buttons on each cuff. Tagged a vintage YSL 36
