1971 Yves Saint Laurent Silk Wrap Dress

A two time celebrity favorite, this stunning Yves Saint Laurent silk dress has been worn in its various color ways by both Gwyneth Paltrow and Maggie Gyllenhaal! From the collection that Yves drew strongly from the 1940s silhouette, the lines of this little silk dress are amazing. This one was done in a combination of black shot with brilliant pops of blue and crisp whites. It wraps and ties to close so is very easy to wear and feels great when on. It is also very forgiving and allows you to cinch it in or wear a little looser if needed. The shoulders are slightly gathered along their tops and the sleeves are cut full with lots of volume. Yves utilized a common forties trick of a small padding just along the edge of the shoulder seam that helps give the shoulder cap a little lift. It ties at the side and the front has the perfect plunge! Excellent, appears unworn condition! A classic and well documented dress!

Unlined and wraps to close and ties at the waist. There is an inner waist stay that hooks to close - if you need more room through the waist you can leave this undone. The tie and wrap design allows for a bit of give tot eh measurements of an inch or two either way.
