1970s Yves Saint Laurent Ruffled Tiered Skirt & Top Set

This stunning Yves Saint Laurent set combines his love and fascination with all things gypsy, bohemian and peasant in feel with his masterful eye with print and color combinations. This is like the perfect melding of the two ideas in one. It is a two piece set, which gives it endless styling potential, since you can wear the pieces together as shown here, or pair them with other items. The skirt is stunning and made of a beautiful cotton voile with a slightly polished finish and a paisley print on the teal background. The fabric choice helps it to keep its shape and volume and really show off those ruffled tiers perfectly. The tiers circle the hem on two flounces of fabric. The skirt itself gradually widens to create volume and movement. I love the effect that this creates. The top is made of a slightly more starched feeling cotton and here the pattern changes so you get a super contrast between the two pieces. The top is cut with a skinny fit and buttons down the front. A flared collar and button cuffs are the perfect finish. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Both the top and skirt are unlined. The skirt closes at the side with a painted zipper and flat hook and eye. The top buttons to close and also buttons at each cuff. The very bottom button on the top is missing. Both are tagged a vintage YSL 36. Note the color is more of a dusky teal in person and has photoed more of a blue tone.
