YVES SAINT LAURENT c. 1970 Vintage Floral Leg O'Mutton Sleeve Blouse Size XXS

This rare and iconic Yves Saint Laurent blouse from c. 1970 is made of black cotton with a lovely floral print in hues of pink and white. It features a fitted cut with extravagant leg o'mutton sleeves with zippered cuffs and closes with a row of 19 (!) original round black buttons and elaborate button loops. 100% cotton, fully lined. Made in France.

This blouse is very similar to the blouse pictured above (which we also have in the shop) and appears to originate from the same collection. The reference picture above shows Yves Saint Laurent with Raquel Welch, shot by Terry O'Neill, c. 1970. YSL muse Betty Catroux was pictured in another similar blouse for Vogue, March 1970 (reference picture left).
