F/W 1989 Yves Saint Laurent Pink Silk Brocade Suit

This is an amazing suit from the Yves Saint Laurent label that dates to the F/W 1989 runway. I have included a photo that shows the same fabric in blue that was used for the presentation that year. The fabric is absolutely stunning and takes center stage on this piece. Both the jacket and skirt are constructed from a metallic silk brocade done in a vivid hues of pink with shots of a brilliant metallic green running through it. It is also interesting as it builds on the ideas from the the collection he did in tribute to Pierre Bonnard for Fall-Winter 1988. It is cut perfectly in that Yves way, with strong shoulders, a wide notched lapel and classic double button front. Two top seamed pockets sit just below the waist. Large gold metal buttons close the jacket and four smaller versions finish each cuff. Each of the buttons on the sleeve are there for decorative purposes only, however, each still has a proper finished buttonhole underneath - I love that attention to detail!. The skirt is stunning. It wraps and closes at the side with four of those same huge gold buttons with a flash of leg seen underneath. One scooped pocket sits on one hip. Excellent condition.

Both pieces are fully lined in a fine, high quality pink silk. The jacket closes with the gold toned metal buttons as shown and the skirt closes with the same huge gold buttons and a large flat hook & eye at the waist.
