1970s Yves Saint Laurent Russian Collection Top

An amazing top by Yves Saint Laurent that is the RTW version of the ones shown in his haute couture Russian collection. Made of a cream, raw silk, the top is absolutely wonderful in person! Each sleeve is cut very wide from the body of the top and each has small pleats set on the top of the shoulder. The sleeves each end in elastic - this creates tremendous volume and a great puffed shape. The body of the top is cut loose and easy, peasant style, with a simple button at the neck. Once on and tucked in this again gives volume if you wish. An iconic piece and in a hard to find color and size. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips on with a button at the neck. Elastic at each cuff. Tagged a YSL vintage 44
