1980s Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture Herringbone Suit

This is an amazing and classic feeling suit from the Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture atelier. I have put that it as from the 1980s but the estate it came form was chock full of pieces dating form the late 1970s to the early 80s so it could be a little earlier. It is a chic silhouette with a classic jacket dropped to the top of the hip and a fitted skirt that lands above the knee. The fabric is beautiful and has the feel of a man's suiting, a play on gender that Yves did often. Both the jacket and skirt are constructed from a grey herringbone with grey velvet derailing at the collar and cuffs. It is cut perfectly, with a slim shoulder, a slim notched lapel. The jacket is fitted and follows the curves of your body with two pockets that sit on the front of each hip. The skirt is also fitted and cut above the knee for a subtle sexiness that contrasts the fabric choice with belt loos that match the belt. Excellent condition.

Both pieces are hand lined in silk and the suit was made entirely by hand in the YSL atelier. The jacket buttons to close and the skirt closes with a couture set zipper and hook & eye at the waist. It has it's matching belt. Numbered Haute Couture label 050937
