s/s1970 Documented Yves Saint Laurent

This is a rare find indeed. This suit appeared in the February issue of French Vogue, as captured by the great photogrpaher Jeanloup Sieff, and is from the S/S 1970 collection. Even more amazing is that the very photo that appeared in Vogue was republished and used in the 2012 book Saint Laurent, Rive Gauche - Fashion revolution. You can see it on page 105 of that book! It is perfectly cut and balanced in design. Made from what Vogue described as " a polished cotton satin" it has a slight sheen to it and the fabric has enough weight that it holds it sculptural shape well The skirt exemplifies the seventies with its exaggerated A-line cut and vertical top seaming. The jacket has that nod to the Victorian age with a high collar and tightly spaced row of round shiny buttons. It is fitted through the body with a dainty peplum hip. I love that each sleeve is finished with 4 matching buttons. It is an amazing set and such a delight to have such an extremely well documented piece. Excellent condition

The jacket is fully lined in fine black silky rayon while the skirt is unlined. The jacket closes with a tightly spaced row of round black buttons and the skirt closes withs with a side zipper and flat hook & eye at the waist. Each cuff has 4 buttons that are decorative and match the ones on the jacket.
