Late 1980s Yves Saint Laurent Couture Navy Dress
An iconic Yves Saint Laurent couture dress from the late 1980s. This dress features a peter pan collar with an overlaid Lavallière style bow. Around the peter pan collar is a silk trim that adds a highlight to the collar, the same material that is used on the Lavallière bow. A feature that is quintessentially 80s is the addition of shoulder pads that adds structure to the dress, which then comes down into ¾ length sleeves with large cuffs. At the front of the dress on the bodice, there are 5 glossy buttons. On the inside of the dress, there are press stud fastenings to allow for the dress to be properly fastened in a neat fashion. The skirt of the dress falls down from a pleated style where it meets the bodice and sits in an a-line design at the bottom.
