Fall 1996-97 Yves Saint Laurent Burgundy Sequin Micro Mini Dress or Tunic

This Yves Saint Laurent piece is the later version of the black one I also listed today and it is just as fabulous. The color of the deep burgundy sequins is amazing. The color is very rich feeling the sequins bring it to life even more. Every square inch of the piece is finished with them. For this one the sequins are laid out flat and set side by side to cover the entire piece. Like its slightly older counterpart it too can play double duty. It is more of a short, mini dress length but can also be worn as a tunic. Either way you will be showing off a mile of leg. The neckline is slightly scooped and the shoulders themselves are lightly padded and squared off so you get a touch of structure. The sleeves are long and the body of the tunic dress is cut to skim over the body in an easy, relaxed way. The sequins are shimmer in the light and in person it is even better then how it photoed. I love the piped detailing that finishes each cuff, the neckline then runs down the back on either side of the zipper. It's fabulous. Excellent condition
