Spring 1982 Yves Saint Laurent Metallic Silver Leather Pencil Cut Skirt

We had a photo of a gold leather set from the spring 1982 Yves Saint Laurent show in our archive files and this skirt is very similar but finished in a silver instead of a gold. You can also see the similar buttons used on the gold set that looks to be a match to the button closes the waist on this skirt. This version looks to have been cut a little longer and is more of a true pencil shape. I love its flattering cut. This might just be the perfect silver leather skirt. It is very high quality and very well made. The leather is light in weight. It is just heavy enough to keep the shape but light enough that it is constructed as if it was made from fabric. The shape is a classic pencil and the vertical seaming helps to create a lean silhouette. The leather is coated with a soft brushed metallic silver that has just enough shine to add a touch of metallic to your wardrobe but not in a flashy or tacky way. It is exceptional and looks to have never been worn or worn very little. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a black silky rayon and closes with a zipper and a button along the waist. Tagged a vintage YSL 40
