1980s Yves Saint Laurent Densely Covered Red Sequin Tunic Top

I love this Yves Saint Laurent piece. I just had a blue version of this in the shop and I was thrilled to have a red one come into my hands so quickly after that one. The color of the red sequins is amazing and every square inch of the piece is finished with them. 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 are set to feel slightly slouchy and that easy feel carries through the body of the top. It almost feels like some kind of a glam sweatshirt in the way that it sits once on. The sleeves fall to just below the elbows and the body of the tunic dress is cut to skim over the body in an easy, relaxed way. The front is cut a touch shorter then the back. The sequins are a brilliant true red and in person the color is even better then how it photoed. 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 and sequins running in horizontal rows. Excellent condition
