Fall 1988 Yves Saint Laurent Pink Color Block Jacket

I have always kind of loved the photo of Joan Collins in the near twin of this fabulous Yves Saint Laurent jacket so I was thrilled to have this one land in the shop. With the only difference being the color way this is otherwise that same jacket. This was the height of the Dynasty days and Joan was a super star. The jacket was the perfect piece to showcase her rising stardom. Made of a combination of black velvet and silk satin it has those bold lines that we have come to love from the eighties. The shoulders are cut strong and broad and the waist nips in above the flared hip peplum. The nipped in waist is made even smaller through the visual V created bu the way the white is set down the front. I love the pink collar and sleeves and how the entire jacket has that unexpected flash of pink once it opens. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in pink silk satin and buttons down the front. One button on the cuff is slightly different from the rest so must have been changed/replaced at some point
