YVES SAINT LAURENT c. 1978/79 Haute Couture Chantilly Lace Silk Dress Size M
This exquisite Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture dress comprises two pieces and is made of black silk, silk chiffon and finest chantilly lace. The black silk underdress features spaghetti straps and wide chantilly lace edges. It closes with a side zipper and a metal hook and eye. From the waist down, the underdress is constructed in two layers, the hem of the bottom layer filled with little weights for perfect drape. The main dress is made by fine silk chiffon and finishes at calf-length with a wide chantilly lace edge. The neckline extends into two long bands that are tied into a bow. The ultralong billowing sleeves have generously ruffled lace cuffs with Yves Saint Laurent's signature black cut glass buttons. The waist area is constructed in black silk and extends into two ultralong lush silk bands that are tied into an opulent bow. The dress closes at the side with a row of hidden snap buttons and two metal hooks and eyes at waist level.
A rare Haute Couture masterpiece, entirely made by hand in the Parisian atelier of Yves Saint Laurent. Yves Saint Laurent presented a very similar model for A/W 1998/99 (see rerefence picture above), but according to the couture number 45943 our dress should date to either A/W 1978/79 or S/S 1979.
Excellent. Minor signs of wear to the underdress as visible in the detail pictures: 1) a minimal imperfection to the lace, 2) light stretch to a defined part of the seam, 3) light wear (like superficial scratches) to a defined part of the fabric. All very minor and not noticeable when worn.
