Early 1970s Silk Floral Yves Saint Laurent Dress

Florals and Yves Saint Laurent were always the perfect combination and in this darling little silk fine light silk dress that is shown to its best! Over a black back drop are a riot of multi-colored, bright and bold flowers strewn over its surface. This is one of his most iconic prints and I love it! The cut is all Yves as well - the dress has high set shoulders and fabulously wide sleeves that puff out above the elbow. The bodice has a angled neckline and gathers at the bust. From there is skims over the torso with a full cut through the waist and then the skirt flares out in the prettiest of ways. You can wear it lose and easy or cinch in the waist with a belt. Like the infamous "Scandalous" haute couture collection of Spring 1971, this is a nod to the dresses of the 1940s but done in that perfect YSL style that is all its own. It is perfection. Excellent, appears unworn condition

Unlined and closes at the back with a back painted metal zipper. Each cuff buttons to close. It is tagged a vintage YSL 40
