1970s Yves Saint Laurent Soft Brown Floral Print Silk Dress Top & Skirt Set

This beautiful two piece set shows what a master Yves was with print. The top and skirt share the same floral print and instead of that being overwhelming it only serves to give the illusion that it is a dress instead of the two pieces. Yves was a master at taking fine silks and simple designs and then adding romantic, feminine elements to create something uniquely Laurent in feel. Both pieces are made from a high quality silk. This allows them to move and drape wonderfully once on the body. You will see a lot of his pieces made from this silk during this time period and for good reason. The top has an easy to wear cut and sits loose on the body. It buttons at the front neck so that you can leave it open or close completely to create a higher neckline. There is an attached tie belt at the waist that allows you to add shape. Each sleeve has a pretty amount of volume over the 3" cuff. The skirt hooks and zips to close. It is cut to flows over the hips and ends just past the knee. It is more fitted around the hips and then the pleats opens to create some volume. Excellent condition

Both pieces are unlined. The top buttons partially down the front and has three buttons on each cuff. The skirt zips and hooks to close. Has its original tie belt attached lightly to the top. Both pieces are tagged a 36
