Sold - YVES SAINT LAURENT A/W 1977/78 Vintage Silk Lamé Blouse XS-S
An amazing Yves Saint Laurent evening blouse from the A/W 1977/78 collection, made of a fine black silk crêpe with interwoven gold-tone metal threads. The cut is just lovely with a ruffled collar and long tassel cords. The sleeves are very wide and billowing, set into high armholes and finish with buttoned cuffs. The blouse is slightly sheer and unlined. Made in France. Please see the reference pic from the ad campaign A/W 1977/78 with Marie Helvin.
Overall excellent. Small (minor and inevitable) pulls to the lamé threads. There is a pinhead-sized hole to one sleeve where the fabric has or has ever been thinned out (see detail pic) - this will go unnoticed when worn and could easily be fixed with a few stitches.
