Documented 1993 Yves Saint Laurent Silk Coat
An incredible coat from the Fall 1993 collection that was featured in the ad campaign shot by Helmut Newton and modeled by Nelly Schamey. This twin of that coat is in exceptional condition and right on trend with this season's over-sized look with its full cut! The exterior is a stunning silk brocade that has both print and texture running through it. I love the shots of blue in the design! - it is so unexpected and really makes the design pop! The inside collar and cuffs are lined with a rich burgundy velvet and all the seams are piped in his signature gold braid piping. Even the buttons are special - they are little domed open filigree buttons over a black base! Stunning and in excellent condition.
Fully lined in a fine, burgundy silk and closes at the front with buttons. Cleeves can be cuffed or left down. Fairly light weight - its an evening coat not a full winter coat. Hidden pockets along the side seams. Tagged a 34 - Meant to be worn over-sized so truly a SML, however it will fit a MED easily
