Rare 1984 Yves Saint Laurent Zebra Safari Trench Coat

Bold and dramatic, this crisp cotton trench by Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche is the perfect light topper. It is so pristine that I doubt it was ever worn at all. It is like it walked out of a time capsule straight from its original Saint Laurent store to here. It buttons down the front in a double row of buttons and has a tie to cinch in the waist.The sleeves are very full and cut wide from the body, narrowing at the wrist with an adjustable cuff so you can wear them tighter or looser there. A buttoned strap detail sits atop each shoulder. The collar is notched and large and it has pockets that sit on each hip. With an instantly recognizable zebra "safari" print and fabulous lines, it is a rare piece by one of the greatest designer.  Excellent, appears unworn condition

Unlined and buttons to close and has its original tie belt. Pockets on each hip. Tagged a 36. For the date -  I found a reference to the illustration as attached done by Annana Teramorsi with the same print and dated 1984. Note that it was meant to be worn over-sized as the era dictated. In actuality it will fit on a variety of sizes because of the generous cut.

Waist: 21" flat across from side seam to side seam
