1980s Yves Saint Laurent Black Snap Front Flight Jumpsuit w Slip Belt

This jumpsuit is from the Yves Saint Laurent variation line which was an experimental lower priced lined that last for a short time period during the 80s. Most of the pieces you see from it are not what I look for from his work on a day to day basis but this jumpsuit had such great lines I could not resist picking it up. There was just something so young and fresh about this jumpsuit that I decided to make an exception. It is an inky black and its lines make you think that it borrows from the 'flight suit' in feel. The fabric is just heavy enough to hold the shape and I love the slide buckle belt that allows you to really cinch in the waist. The sleeves each snap to close and you can push them up like I have or roll them for a jauntier look. The bodice also snaps to close down the front and it is cut to be fuller. The pants below start out fuller around the hips and then narrow done as they reach the ankle. You could roll these too to get a totally different feel. Pockets on each hip and rounded padding in the shoulders for the perch finishes. It is a super fun piece and looks like it was never worn or worn very little. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closed with snaps up the front with a zipper under the waist at the front. Slide buckle belt. Snaps on each cuff and each shoulder has padding. Tagged a size 40. Meant to be fuller on.
