When Yves Saint Laurent invented "Saint Laurent Rive Gauche", this quote was his cri de coeur: Down with the Ritz, up with the street! His intuition was spot on, he became the cuturier who thought about the women of today. The ready to wear collection was a triumph and he was quoted by the press at the time as the genius who captured a powerful trend: the imperialism of youth. Yves started to design for the woman who was active, young, and working, and her need for comfortable and cool clothes with an affordable price tag, was reflected in all his Rive Gauche designs. This knit sweater with shawl collar comes from the 70's, from that same concept, comfortable and chic, it can be worn with jeans or over a dress. The tonal hues of red, cream and rosé bring a warm mood perfect for fall or early spring and the pockets make for a practical use. This sweater is the perfect addition to any woman's life, and because it is Yves Saint Laurent it will be for life.

Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche knit sweater with shawl collar, c. 1970's. Modern Size 4 to 6. SOLD
