Amazing Spring 1992 Yves Saint Laurent Runway Red Lace Strapless Dress w Grosgrain Detailing

This dress is the twin of the dress that walked the Spring 1992 runway and it is fantastic. The show had a string lingerie theme running through it and this dress was one of the most literal interpretations of that theme. This one is also brand new with tags so it's like having address from a time capsule which is incredible. I love that I have tons of runway photos and the video so that you can see just how fantastic this dress is on the body.

The dress is strapless with a cupped and shaped bodice and short cut with a kicky little skirt. It is made from a red lace to really play on that lingerie feel and the lines of it have been highlighted with a black grosgrain ribbon. This little extra touch really adds to the impact the dress has. A pretty little edging of silk chiffon is set in a small ruffle that follows the curving edge of the bust. This continues all the way around to the back. The cups have light boning for shape and then go all the way down and around the back. the dress skims over the waist and hips with long black grosgrain ribbons sewn onto the lace to create curves and length. Another ribbon circles around the seam that separates the lower skirt from the body of the dress. I love the fear of the lower skirt. It is set to be gathered into that low set seam so that it has a little extra volume and flare. The bottom edges are set an a little scallop that follows the design in the lace. The dress is simultaneously beautiful, romantic and full out sexy. It is gorgeous and with its original hang tag in place a little like getting a time capsule piece. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a red silk chiffon and the interior bodice and upper part of the dress is lightly boned for shape and support. It closes with a hidden set zipper under the black middle ribbon. Tagged a vintage YSL 40. New with original hang tag and never worn
