2002 Tom Ford Yves Saint Laurent Mombasa Top

From the iconic 2002 Mombasa collection by Tom Ford for Yves Saint Laurent I present this stunning silk corset top. One of the stars of that runway show, this top is still as fabulous and forward feeling now as when it debuted on the runway. It is made of a screened silk chiffon and lined in a nude silk net. Raw edged net detail the seams on the shoulders, sides and front. Grommets run down the front and raw edged ties lace both the front and the back into place - hidden under the fabric of the back is a cross tied corset inset! The sleeves are wide and each finished with grommets and lacing. This was Tom's play on the iconic YSL safari designs and is so sexy! love how the ties will trail almost to the floor if you wish them to. Excellent, appears unworn condition

Lined in nude silk net and has a hidden set side zipper. You can further adjust the fit through the body with the ties. Tagged a YSL 36
