YVES SAINT LAURENT S/S 1979 Vintage Silk Dress Moon Star Print Size S // Sold

A spectacular Yves Saint Laurent silk dress from Spring/Summer 1979 featuring the iconic moon and star print. Please see the original runway pic (by Paul van Riel via Europeana Fashion) and the famous Vogue UK editorial pic with Gia Carangi for reference. The dress is made of a fine and floaty silk chiffon with a multi-colored print in fuchsia, blue, green, red and cream white as well as sparkling gold-tone lurex stars. The main colour is somewhere between the darkest midnight blue and black. The dress features a wide neckline (can be regulated with a fine black satin drawstring) with two layers of opulent ruffles and extralong, ultrawide billowing sleeves with elasticated ruffled cuffs. The fit is loose and floaty and allows for a variety of sizes. Can also be styled with a belt to accentuate the waist and achieve a more fitted look. Slips on to wear, knee-length. 100% silk, unlined. Made in France. The combination of the wide cut and the sheer and floaty fabric with its multi-coloured, sparkling print creates an amazing effect. A highly collectible piece.

Excellent. Only flaw are signs of use to the satin drawstring.
