1978 Yves Saint Laurent Feather Fox & Mink Fur Jacket

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. Sleeves: approx 27" Shoulders: approx 16" Bust: 21" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 20" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 23" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 30" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED I have a small collection of historically important, designer labelled vintage furs and fur trimmed pieces stored away in my archives that I will be slowly posting over the course of this year and next. I will no longer be buying furs for the shop moving forward. I feel like times have changed and while there still is a place for vintage furs for some, including collectors and historians, many modern girls are choosing other options. Many of the pieces in my collection are representative of the designer during a set time period in history that was different then our modern outlook. I have decided that the best course to handle this controversial issue is to let the pieces I have go and refrain from any further buys from here on in. This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
