Sold - YVES SAINT LAURENT c. 1971 Vintage Pleated Maxi Skirt Size XS
This rare and iconic Yves Saint Laurent pleated skirt from c. 1971 is made of a lightweight wool fabric with a graphic pattern in muted shades of beige, grey, olive green and black. Yves Saint Laurent took this pattern from an original Peruvian motif. Flared with sharp pleats, maxi-length. The skirt wraps around the body and closes with two hidden hooks and eyes and a hidden snap button at the waist. 100% wool, unlined. Made in France.
This iconic piece has been modeled by YSL's muse Loulou de la Falaise outside the Rive Gauche Boutique at Rue de Tournon, pictured by Umberto Guidotti for ELLE magazine, 1972 (reference pic). This skirt has also been worn by French actress Mireille Darc for a photo shoot with Michael Holtz at her home in the 16th arrondissement of Paris in 1971.
Excellent, appears unworn. One minimal faint mark at the upper front (appears worse in the pictures, hardly noticeable, will not detract when worn).
