1970s Possible YSL Silk Taffeta Evening Cape

This came from the same source as the 1977 and 1973 Yves Saint Laurent gowns we have listed at the moment and it was sold as also being a YSL piece but unfortunately the tag is no longer present. It does feel like it could easily be a YSL piece as it is very similar to pieces we have had before in terms of cut and quality. It is an exceptional piece made of a raw black silk exterior and then is fully lined in a black fine grade silk. It's collar is ruffled, rounded circle that can stand up if you wish and it ties at the neck with a long attached tie. An incredible amount of fabric in this piece! The photos do not come close to doing the amount of fabric in the cape justice! Exceptional and the perfect topper to any evening outfit. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in black silk and ties at the neck to close with one hook & eye at the neck. Slits along front seams for arms. Hand finishes.

Shoulders: no defined seam
Bust, waist and hips: open
Length: 56" from neck to hem

Modern Sizing Equivalent: One size fits all
