1980s Yves Saint Laurent Safari Sack Dress

From one of the later revivals of that famous safari collection is this equally fabulous (and easy to wear) safari sack dress. Cut to be open and loose through the bodice and waist and then hug the hips. You can belt this for more definition but it is shown here without so you can see its fabulous lines! The front is classic YSL with four dramatic pockets and large, carved wooden buttons defining each and closing the front. Love the notched collar. Instantly recognizable and a forever classic! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Unlined and buttons part way down the front. The buttons are carved wood and all the pockets are functional. Tagged a vintage YSL 42. Its meant to be loose through the top and waist and then hug the hips so this is the most important measurement.

Shoulders: 16"
Bust: 21" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 20" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 40" from neck to hem

Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED
