LAYAWAY AVAILABLE ON ALL ITEMS. DM ME IF INTERESTED. Classic and crisp vintage 1980s YSL white brocade midi dress. It's taking inspiration from both the Victorian era and the 1950s, very unusual! The whole body of the dress is a sturdy yet soft silk-effect brushed cotton, and it's covered both front and back with a subtly striking floral and leaf brocade. Wide scooping neck and Victorian-inspired gathered and voluminous shoulders (no shoulder pads, just pleating). Solid defined waist falls into a 1950s inspired full skirt. 3 working buttons dot the bodice, and there's also a side zip closure. Partially lined, only on the back of the bodice. Timeless, classic shape; this dress would look chic and sophisticated for a city hall or casual spring outdoor wedding! Outer is 100% cotton, lining is 55% acetate/45% rayon. Labeled "Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche", Made in France, and marked size 40. Approx. a US size 8/10 but see measurements.

Excellent vintage condition, wearable. Light pilling to the brocade and a few faint scattered orange marks. Tiny grey mark on the back left shoulder pleat. None of these are desperately visible. They may or may not come out with a dry cleaning, I haven't tried. Overall, this dress is solid!
