1970s Yves Saint Laurent Green Silk Ruffled Poet Top

This beautiful green silk blouse is a classic look from Yves Saint Laurent and variations of it are still being produced today. It is quite fabulous and a little more elaborate the some of his other pieces from this era. It has a poet blouse feel to it with its ruffled front and sleeves that are caught up at each wrist with a ruffled finish. I love the classic tie finish at the neck that was his signature for many, many years. The front of the blouse is finished with a cascading ruffle on each side and it ties to close at the waist. There is a hidden hook and eye if you want to wear it with less of a plunge front or you can wear it as shown to show a sensual expanse of skin. The cut will also work as a layered piece over something underneath. The brilliant green color is amazing and the pretty curved leaf print worked into the silk divine. Excellent condition.

The top is unlined and ties to close at the front with additional hidden hook and eye. Tagged a vintage YSL 40 but the generous cut will work on a variety of sizes.
