1970s Sequin Wool Yves Saint Laurent Jacket

I love this jacket - it has an almost caped feel to it and the combination of sequins and beads on the felted wool is so chic. The cut is very wide and loose. From the back it looks like a cape and you just slip your arms through the holes provided. The sleeves come out almost directly from the waist which is what gives it its caped feel. The front has no closures but it cut so a soft, rounded lapel is formed and the edges are edged in his signature corded edging. A double diamond pattern is created with slate grey bead work and glossy black sequins. 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 full on evening. Excellent condition

Unlined and no closures. The size will accommodate a large variety - it will just get slouchier the smaller you are. Light padding in the shoulders, easily removed if you prefer it with none. Mid weight so excellent for indoor or as a lighter outdoor piece

Shoulders: no defined seams but 57" across from cuff to cuff

Bust-hips: open
Length: 21" from top of bodice to waist
Skirt: 27" from waist to hem

Modern Sizing Equivalent: OSFA
