YVES SAINT LAURENT S/S 1977 Vintage Lace Up Peasant Top XXS-XS

725 EUR
An iconic Yves Saint Laurent peasant top with front lacing from Spring 1977. Yves Saint Laurent created these tops for the F/W 1976/77 Russian Collection and then released further designs in various colours as important key pieces for his Spanish inspired S/S 1977 collection. These tops are one of the designer's most sought after designs and instantly recognizable. They were heavily featured in ads and editorials and are thus very well documented (see pictures). This top from Spring 1977 is made from sienna brown cotton and features a seven hole lacing with a long braided cord with tassels. Edges and straps are trimmed with brown and white cording. 100% cotton, unlined. Made in France.

Condition
Very good with gentle signs of wear to fabric and braided cord. Please note that the tassels show some fraying and that there is a discoloration to the cording to the bottom front (see pictures - I am confident this will further fade with repeated cleaning).
