A/W 2002 Rich Blue Velvet and Silk Ribbons Suit Set
Intricate A/W 2002 Yves Saint Laurent by Tom Ford deep sapphire velvet suit set that ties in front and back with pale purple silk ribbons, with special tied mesh lining around the entire jacket, and deep openings in sides that reveal silk paneling. Skirt hits just above the knee, and has a middle slit and some mesh paneling for added detail. An incredibly detailed wearable piece of art. In excellent vintage condition.
“Tom Ford is very, very good at being wicked. The designer was in an adult-erotic frame of mind at Yves Saint Laurent, taking potential clichés such as black satin ribbon, taffeta, velvet, chantilly lace and fur and applying them in an offhand way to extravagant, body-emphasizing pieces that often looked as if they might fall off at the slightest pull of a bow. What, after all, could be more provocative than a woman wearing expensive clothes that look as if they were made to be undone by a lover?” - Vogue
