YVES SAINT LAURENT A/W 1977/78 Vintage Silk Lamé Evening Blouse XS-S

480 EUR
An amazing Yves Saint Laurent evening blouse from the A/W 1977/78 collection, made from 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 pics from the ad campaign A/W 1977/78 with Marie Helvin and from L'Officiel Paris 1977 which shows a YSL blouse featuring the same cut with the ruffled collar and tassels but made of a different lamé fabric.

Condition
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.
