Yves Saint Laurent Matisse Inspired Skirt
True to Yves Saint Laurent’s aesthetic of bright color combinations and light-hearted prints, the couture designer paid homage to the post-impressionist painter Henri Matisse and cubist painter Fernand Léger. Inspired by the both of them, Saint Laurent arrived upon a collection that showcased color and basic shapes to bring an entirely new layer of artistic influence to his fashion.
As part of the ready-to-wear release of that collection, this skirt is made from a light crepe with a zany variety geometric shapes in purple, indigo, Kelly green,red, and teal on a white ground that give the effect of being a collage on paper. Sitting at the waist, the skirt has an easy drape over the hip and flounces gently to knee level. A vintage yet modern look from YSL, this skirt is the perfect option to add a pop to a solid color blouse and can easily be accessorized.
Size estimate: Medium
Waist: 28 inches
Hips: fill up to 44 inches
