YVES SAINT LAURENT RIVE GAUCHE BY TOM FORD
Cotton Laced Safari Skirt (khaki)
Safari is a classic theme within Yves Saint Laurent’s iconography, from model Veruschka von Lehndorff wearing the saharienne jacket in 1968 to Tom Ford reinterpreting it through his iconic Spring/Summer 2002 collection and here again in 2004. With this flirty skirt in green cotton, the Texan designer evokes the essence of French seduction, suggesting body parts rather than revealing them. Asymmetrical lacing adds a contemporary twist to this timeless style.
