Yves Saint Laurent Black Linen Shirtdress, 1966.

Yves Saint Laurent Black Linen Shirtdress, 1966.


This lovely Yves Saint Laurent shirtdress was an absolute staple in 1966. The following Spring, Vogue called it "the shirtdress the world's been waiting for" (1st March 1967). Even film star Catherine Deneuve wore an almost identical design in beige for aruguably her most famous role, and collaboration with Yves Saint Laurent, in "Belle de Jour".


This version, made from black "Springbak" linen/polyester, was designed exclusively by Yves Saint Laurent for the London department store Fortnum and Mason. It features two functional pockets at the front, accented with gold buttons, and gold-button cufflinks. It closes at the front with a zip, hidden by a placket.




Excellent vintage condition.

Very little signs of wear. One of the original gold buttons cufflinks has been replaced, although this is barely noticeable. The zipper is in good working condition and the fabric still feels sturdy.
