Documented Saint Laurent YSL One Shoulder Black Velvet Metallic Layered Dress, 1980s
A designer who in many ways was ahead of his time, YSL seamlessly has evolved his aesthetic from traditional to modern and back again. Following his themed Russian and Opium collections in the late 1970s, velvet and metallics became something of a signature for Saint Laurent entering his 80s era.
Designed with a futuristic, asymmetrical silhouette, this one-shoulder dress features a bold, deep black velvet bodice and a black and gold silk, crinkle chiffon skirt. The diagonal neckline and hipline create a pleasing rhythm to the dress. The shift from the rich black velvet to the tiers of gold and black chiffon work to lengthen the leg as well as add contrasting movement to the bottom of the skirt giving this dress an added poise and charm. This asymmetric style is both classic and youthful and can easily be paired with gold accessories for an even stronger look.
