Incredible 1970s Yves Saint Laurent Gold Metallic Top Stitched Jacket
This jacket is incredible and in person it is even better then how it photoed. The gold on it makes more of an impact and you really get a sense of the detail and texture that is in this jacket. The base of the jacket is a black, light weight felted wool that is very soft and fine. Top stitched onto this is a metallic gold thread that is set in long vertical lines and then there is a second diamond pattern over those. The gold thread cover the entire jacket and really give it a lush feel. All of the edges are finished with a thick black and gold braiding. This circles the cuffs and hem, runs up the front and around the collar and sits across the top of each front pocket. He has also added it around the seams where the arms attach. The cut is a comfortable to wear box cut that is chic but loose and easy - a classic Yves silhouette. The sleeves are cut wide which makes them quite striking with that gold thread and cording design. The loose and easy cut make it extremely versatile and it is the kind of piece that will work equally well for a casual afternoon or as evening wear. Excellent condition
