Object Name Blouse
Date late 1990s
Description Woman's woven square-cut blouse of sheer black silk ground with unevenly shaped and sized red satin squares arranged in horizontal rows along the body and sleeves. The effect created is a burn-out (whether that technique was used is undetermined). Squares look like bits of ribbon with finished edges; some have horizontal fray lines, which are purposeful and create a slightly distressed look. Round neckline; long, set-in sleeves, narrow cuff with one black button. 4.5" opening at center back neck with one black button closure. Label: "Yves Saint Laurent encore Made in Fr"
