Fall 1985 Yves Saint Laurent Densely Covered Blue Sequin Top w Beaded Ribbing

I love these Yves Saint Laurent sequin tops. They are from the Fall 195 collection and we found a runway shot of one variation in the same blue as this one. They can in several length and different sleeve lengths. I have had this exact piece in red in the shop before and I was thrilled to have this gorgeous blue one come into my hands. These are getting harder to find so I grab them whenever I can. They are so versatile. The sequins say evening and the cut says casual so you can really play on that and wear it with a zillion different things. The color of the blue sequins is amazing and every square inch of the piece is finished with them. The neckline is slightly scooped and set wide across the neck which allows for a little bit of skin to show on the top of your shoulders. The shoulders are set to feel slightly slouchy with a touch of padding in them for shape. That easy feel carries through the body of the top. It almost feels like a glam sweatshirt in the way that it sits once on. The sleeves are wide at the top and narrow to the cuff and the body of the tunic dress is cut to skim over the body in an easy relaxed way. The sequins are a brilliant blue colour and in person the color is even better then how it photoed. I love the detailing around the cuff of each sleeve and the bottom hem. It creates the impression of a ribbed sweater but this is all actually done with hand placed tube beads and sequins running in horizontal rows. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a blue silk chiffon and slips on to wear with no closures. Light padding in each shoulder and each cuff closes with a series of hidden set snaps. Hand finishes. A smaller frame could wear it in a more slouchy oversized look.
