Resort 1983 Yves Saint Laurent Blue Printed Cotton Hip Swag Sarong Dress

This is a gorgeous little YSL dress form the 1983 resort collection that has a fun and exotic vibe to it. The dress is made from a crisp cotton that has enough weight and structure to it to perfectly fall into the line that Yves desired it to have. It has a nod to the Hawaiian dresses of the forties in its color and cut. I love the bold blue color that is combined with a soft clay colour and a deep purple that makes up the abstract print that covers the dress. The shape is soft and cut to skim over the body. The dress is suspended from wide straps that curve around each shoulder. The bust is more fitted and gathered for fullness and shaping. The skirt is a faux wrap that overlaps over itself along the side with the bow, So when you walk or sit it will open a bit to show some leg. On the one hip is a large half bow that adds amazing shape and detailing. It is fantastic on the body. Excellent overall condition with a note below

Lined through the bodice in the same fabric and the skirt is unlined. It closes with a side zipper. Tagged a vintage YSL 36. I see one light mark on the bodice that fades into the print. Please see the photo after the label shot.
