c2014 Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent Lace & Leather Dress

Hedi's tenure at Saint Laurent may not have lasted long but he certainly made an impact while there. His collections were a financial success and the collections he designed will be forever recognizable as being done under his direction. He did turn to the archives but the interpretations were solely his viewpoint and done with his signature street, rock and roll vibe. Here we have a play on that famous lace backed dress done by Yves for the 1970 Haute Couture collection. For his modern version he has made the dress a fitted mini with the lace panel sitting broad across the chest sot hat maximum cleavage is shown but you are still fully covered. A band of black leather circles the waist and acts like a built in corseted belt. The sleeves are long and skinny and each ends in a row of decorative, tightly spaced tuxedo feeling buttons - another play on the archives. The fabric of the dress is a bandage like jersey and is fitted. One of the sell outs everywhere this is an amazing and sexy little black dress.

Unlined and closes with a side zipper under the waist line and snaps above that. The buttons on the sleeves are decorative. Very. very light padding in each shoulder. Tagged a modern F36
