1979 Yves Saint Laurent Silk Floral Print Blouse Documented YSL


A print of tropical flowers in vibrant Pop Art colors makes this silk chiffon blouse designed by Yves Saint Laurent an amazing vintage find. Part of his spring/summer 1979 collection, it was positively captivating on the runway—a standout piece that was styled languidly off one shoulder and paired with a stunning floral headdress, floaty floral trousers and an elaborate jeweled choker. But you could wear this magnificent top in so many ways, taking advantage of the gorgeous gathered neckline to place it on—or off—the shoulders. Just in time for summer, this will be a warm-weather favorite that you will reach for again and again.

This vintage Yves Saint Laurent blouse from the spring/summer 1979 collection is in excellent condition. It is made from a silk chiffon printed with tropical flowers and leaves on a red background. The flowers are purple, blue, yellow and white. The blouse features a wide gathered neckline, which can be worn on the shoulders, off one shoulder or off both shoulders.

The neckline lends a beautiful drape to the blouse, which has a slightly curved hem that falls lower in the front and back than at the sides. Generous gathered long sleeves complete the silhouette. 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.
