1978 Yves Saint Laurent Feather Fox & Mink Fur Jacket

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

In 1978 Yves Saint Laurent did a collection of furs and layere dthe fur to create a "feathered" appearance. A coat similar to this one but done in two tones of badger fur appeared in the October issue of Vogue Magazine (see attached photo). My version here is done is a luxurious cream fox with white tips combined with a blonde mink trim. It has been made so it has a feathered appearance with the fur set in small vertical rows each slightly layered over the other to create the most beautiful effect. The cuffs, collar and edges are trimmed in the mink. The contrast is wonderful and quite stunning. It is cut in that fabulous over the top seventies style with wide, almost bell sleeves and a simple boxy full cut through the body. It has been properly stored and cared for and appears to have been worn very little if at all. No thinning, issues or shedding. This is a rare and wonderful documented vintage fur from an important couturier. A coat by Yves Saint Laurent purchased now would cost tens of thousands of dollars. Truly a treasure and exquisitely beautiful in person - on par with couture level pieces.Current ready to wear collection fur pieces from the Saint Laurent collection are running upwards of $20,000+ for equivalent pieces and wont be one of a kind like this on! Excellent, appears unworn or worn very little condition.

Fully lined in a cafe au lait silk. Pockets at the front and one hidden one along inner inside seam. Embroidered with the name Madeleine inside. I see no bald spots or shedding, the pelts are supple, soft and shiny.
