Vintage 1979 Yves Saint Laurent Haute-Couture Red Dotted Silk Backless Gown



Breathtaking Yves Saint Laurent Haute-Couture gown from his iconic 1979 spring-summer collection. It is insanely chic with its unique flamenco flutter. The fabric is a luxurious red dotted "light as a feather" pure silk. I adore the flattering nipped-waist column silhouette. He then uses an ingenious draped ruffle technique that gives the garment so much depth and texture. The backless design emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the look. This beautiful garment is timeless and classic, yet has its own avant-garde elements. Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:up to 36 inches Total Length:60 This Yves Saint Laurent numbered 39493 Haute-Couture gown is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. The garment is all hand finished and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
