1980s Yves Saint Laurent Densely Covered Black Sequin Micro Mini or Tunic

I absplutely love this Yves Saint Laurent piece.  I just had a blue version of this come in the shop a few weeks black and was very happy to find this black one. for you. The sequins are glossy and a true deep ink black and they cover every square inch of the piece. It is also a little extra special because it can play double duty. It can absolutely be worn as a tunic but if you are brave and don't mind showing off a mile of leg it is just long enough to be worn as a micro mini. Especially with the addition of a pair of tights underneath. The neckline is slightly scooped and set wide across the neck which allows for a little bit of skin to show on the top of your shoulders. The shoulders themselves are lightly padded so you get a touch of structure. The sleeves are long and the body of the tunic dress is cut to skim over the body in an easy, relaxed way. I love the detailing around the cuff of each sleeve and the bottom hem. It creates the impression of a ribbed sweater but this is all actually done with hand placed tube beads. Excellent condition
