1970s Classic Yves Saint Laurent Velvet Coat

A classic Yves Saint Laurent piece, this beautiful black velvet coat will never go out of style! The top portion is cut wider and fuller with a slimmer hip and it buttons down the front. I love the wide, bold shoulders that have a bit of padding in them and each sleeve finished with a cuff so that the sleeve poufs out slightly above. The edges are finished in his signature flat braid and this also gives a great contrast to the black velvet. It closes down the front with bold buttons that are set along the edge of the cord work. It can be worn open and loose or cinched in for more shape with the original matching belt. A take on a man's coat, it is classic Yves gender play and a great basic that still has that touch of seventies glamour. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a black silky rayon satin fabric and close with buttons down the front and braided fabric loops. Tagged a vintage YSL 36 but please check actual measurements. Pockets on each hip. Original velvet belt with a metal belt buckle.
