1979 YSL Yves Saint Laurent Moon & Stars Sleeveless Top Documented


Almost three decades have passed and the moon and star remain iconic to Yves Saint Laurent. Recent collections have shown the celestial bodies on wallets, shoes, belts, dresses and shirts. In this top from 1979, the nighttime symbols appear in bold green, purple, red and white on a background of black rayon crepe. The print caught the eye of editors at Vogue UK, who featured it in a head-to-toe outfit on model and Yves Saint Laurent muse Gia Carangi that year. Rendered on a timeless tunic silhouette, it will be just as easy to wear today—for day or evening—as it was at the height of the New Wave era.

This Yves Saint Laurent top from 1979 is in excellent condition. It features a moon and stars print in vivid colors on a black rayon-crepe background.

High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
