1990 Yves Saint Laurent XL Printed Challis Set

An amazing testament to construction and pure joy of form, this stunning printed wool challis set by Yves Saint Laurent is perfection. The original owner was the wife of a diplomat and had many of her clothing custom made by YSL in her size. This is a wonderful opportunity to get pieces in larger sizes that are very high end - a rarity in the vintage world sometimes. Watch for several pieces from her estate to come! This two piece set consists of a loose fitting tunic style top and a swingy flat pleated skirt. Made of a fine, fluid wool silk challis, the drape is incredible. The top is box cut and that beautiful print! Gold tone buttons decorate each sleeve and sit at the hip. The skirt is classic YSL with an elastic waist. It flows over the hips and just past the knee. Love the border on the skirt that picks up the print in the top. Excellent, appears unworn condition

Both pieces are unlined. The top has hidden set buttons down the front and a gold tone button on each cuff with decorative gold buttons at the waist near one hip. The skirt closes with a side painted metal zipper and a large flat hook & button at the waist band. The waist band has elastic inside it as well. Very light padding in each shoulder.
