1970s Yves Saint Laurent Top & Skirt Set

An amazing two piece set consisting of a loose fitting pheasant style top and a swingy flat pleated skirt. From the time period of his infamous Russian collection, Yves took his inspiration from the uniforms of the military and then added romantic, feminine elements - like this amazing floral print on this set - to soften them and create something entirely unique. Made of a fine, fluid wool silk challis, the drape is incredible. The top is box cut and loose with buttons at the neck that you can leave open or close completely. I love the collarless neckline and the sleeves cut with the perfect shape to ff set the draped body. The skirt is classic YSL with a fitted waist and upper hip. The pleat work is so subtle and executed so perfectly that you really notice it upon close inspection only. It flows over the hips and just past the knee. There is a matching jacket listed as well and the versatility of being able to wear these together or separate is an added bonus! Excellent, appears unworn condition

Both pieces are unlined. The top has buttons at the neck and a button on each cuff, and the skirt closes with a side painted metal zipper and a large flat hook & eye inside the waist band.
