1980s Yves Saint Laurent Crepe Print Day Dress

This dress is darling and done in a classic Yves Saint Laurent cut and silhouette. The light crepe fabric is of the highest possible grade and I adore the red, green and blue pattern on the white backdrop - it feels so fresh and clean. It has a very 40s throwback feel combined with a bit of a sporty tennis dress feel and is very chic. The top is cut like a button front shirt with slightly puffed short sleeves. The skirt features his superb use of pleat work begins just below the more fitted hip and gives the skirt volume when you move. It buttons down the front with a row of buttons that end just past the waist. Love the pointed collar and little puffed sleeves giving it that signature YSL touch. Add a contrasting belt for more shape or wear without. Excellent condition with one small item of note below.

Unlined and closes with the buttons you see at the front. Tagged a vintage 44 but please check actual listed measurements. There are some long skinny pulls here and there in the fabric on the front - they are lost in the pattern but are there. I have photoed it and reduced the price but its really fine and wearable as is.
