Saint Laurent Gold & Black One Shoulder Top Maxi Skirt Belted Set YSL, 1980s
Filled with glitz, glamour, and gold, the 1980s was an era of vivacity and energy, and as usual, Yves Saint Laurent was able to capture the moment and channel it into effortlessly elegant garments. Most likely from the 1986 Fall/Winter collection, this gold and black snake print dress set evokes the exotic extravagance of that time.
The bodice begins with an elegant one-shoulder neckline with gathers at the bust and shoulder, giving this set a regal and formal feel. The metallic, snakeskin printed fabric makes it seem as if the wearer is dipped in liquid metal, further emphasizing the natural lines of the body while adding a sensuous allure.
