The Knit Bridal Gown

Presented in the same collection as the Homage to Mondrian dresses, the knit bridal gown closed that season’s runway show. It was the tradition to end a show with a bridal look. That year, Yves Saint Laurent looked to Russia, specifically matryochka nesting dolls. He borrowed the same shape for his hand-knit wool design with ivory silk satin ribbons, out of which peeked only the model’s radiant face.
