Vintage 1966 Yves Saint Laurent Beaded Metallic Pink Gold Brocade Cocktail Dress



This exceptionally chic metallic silk-brocade cocktail dress is from the infamous Rive Gauche collection during Fall-Winter 1966. Pieces from this decade are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. The fabric itself is a mastepiece; metallic pink and green textured brocade with sparkling couture quality beaded collar/cuffs trimming. I adore the mod trapeze-line seams that skim the hips in such a figure flattering way. It is timeless and effortless, yet has its own iconic elements. "The political and social upheaval of the 1960's, the emergence of a plethora of creative ready-to-wear designers, and the increasing preference for a sportswear approach to dressing as represented by American fashion were among the shifts in lifestyles and taste that appeared to sound the death knell of the calcified and elitist world of the maisons de couture. It was at this time that Yves Saint Laurent, haute couture’s preeminent practitioner, threw caution to the prevailing winds with a collection of unrivaled fantasy and luxury." Measurements Bust:32-33 inches Waist:30 inches Hips:up to 37 inches Total Length:38 inches This Yves Saint Lauren Rive-Gauche Paris designer garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. The original label is missing but as shown, the same dress in blue sold on 1stdibs for over $6,000 last year. Priced accordingly. This documented YSL garment is highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
