1970s Yves Saint Laurent Ikat Print Silk Skirt & Top

This beautiful two piece set shows what a master Yves was with print. The top and skirt are similar in color and print but just different enough that you get a fabulous contrast. Yves was a master at taking fine wools & silks and simple designs and then adding romantic, feminine elements to crease something uniquely Laurent. The top is a fine high quality silk and the skirt a soft silk wool challis fabric. The silk and wool mix moves and drapes wonderfully and these were two of Yves signature fabrics of choice. The top is box cut and loose with buttons at the neck that you can leave open or close completely to create a high, more severe neckline. The neck, cuffs and yoke of the bodice have a fantastic ruffled trim - another YSL signature. The skirt wraps to close, flows over the hips and ends just past the knee. It is more fitted around the hips and then the pattern opens to create some volume. It is a testament to detail that each stripe and pattern lines up perfectly. It has its original tie belt that can be wrapped around the waist or at the neck. I love the boldness of the Ikat print and the colors on this one! Excellent condition

Both pieces are unlined. The top buttons down the front and has a button on each cuff. The skirt wraps to close and secures with large flat hook & eye inside the waist band. Has its original tie belt. The skirt is tagged a 36, the top no longer has its size tag. Please check actual measurements. You could move the hook & eye on the skirt to adjust the fit.
