Breathtaking Yves Saint Laurent colorful floral garden print cotton ensemble from the infamous Rive Gauche collection during the mid-1970's. Pieces from this decade are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. I adore the low plunge button-down design on the beautiful peasant blouse. The stunning sleeves can be worn down or pushed up for a gorgeous billow effect. The matching belted nipped-waist swing skirt has tons of sublime movement with every turn. With this rare Yves Saint Laurent set, you have one complete outfit or amazing separates! "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."
