Incredibly gorgeous Yves Saint Laurent blue and white dotted charcoal wool-knit jumpsuit from his infamous 1973 Rive Gauche collection. Pieces from this decade are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. From the collection that Yves drew strongly from the 1940's silhouette, the lines of this seductive garment are amazing. It has a classic zip-down scoopneck with lean short-sleeves. The curved nipped waist with relaxed trouser style pants is so chic and ultra flattering. You do not easily find this level of workmanship on garments today. "In the mid-1970s the relevance of haute couture was seriously debated. The political and social upheaval of the 1960s, 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."
