Historically significant 1963 Yves Saint Laurent garnet red couture beaded evening ensemble. This two piece midi skirt and top ensemble was acquired from the estate of Claudette Colbert, preeminent Hollywood Golden Age leading lady. The ensemble consists of a calf-length layered sheer chiffon skirt with structured hem and silk waist band, and a sleeveless top with a mock turtleneck. The top features red and green glass seed bead and chandelier bead loop fringe created by the legendary Maison Lesage. Francois Lesage worked with Yves Saint Laurent and other European designers and houses, providing them with the finest embroidery, beading, and sequin work French couture embroidery could create. This evening ensemble is truly one - of - a - kind!
