Dangerous Liasions

When people come in to RARE vintage we often hear gasps, squeals of delight and sometimes we can almost hear hearts pounding.

Our latest addition, in the heart pounding category, is this improbably beautiful historical confection by Yves Saint Laurent.

Marguerite Duras said, "when a dress of Yves Saint Laurent's appears in a salon, we cry with joy. For the dress we had never dreamed of is there, and it is just the one we were waiting for."

This black silk taffeta skirt with a long train cross references a grand eighteenth-century ball gown in a thoroughly Yves Saint Laurent variation. And where to wear this unique piece? A fete at Versailles would be ideal, the Salzburg Easter Festival would be grand, a candlelit palazzo on the Grand Canal would be fine or to the Party of the Year here in Manhattan - just imagine the long train sweeping up the steps to the Metropolitan Museum of Art...

1970s Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche black silk taffeta ball gown skirt. Size 38.
