Yves Saint Laurent
1977 S/S Ad Campaign Gold & Black Skirt Set
This museum-worthy Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche blouse & skirt set from his iconic 1977 S/S "Les Espagnoles et les Romantiques" collection. It featured in that season's ad campaign, as well as in L'Officiel magazine.
The balloon sleeve blouse is a semi-sheer black silk chiffon with gold metallic thread detailing, with no closures and elastic cuffs. The high-waisted full skirt is made from a heavy-weight black cotton, possibly with a linen blend. It features pleating around the waist and a floral embroidered gold metallic trim. The skirt does up the left side with a metal Eclair zipper and a hook at the waistband.
Both pieces are in excellent condition, with only one pinhole near the hem of the blouse. Please note that this set is smaller than the labeled 36. In particular, double check the measurement of the band above the bodice as it is meant for someone with a very small frame.
