Yves Saint Laurent YSL Grey Faux Astrakhan Fur and Black Velvet Jacket, c. 1992

About the Item

Unusual and rare vintage Yves Saint Laurent charcoal grey faux fur Persian lamb or Astrakhan coat with black velvet collar, cuffs and edging probably from the Fall 1992 ready-to-wear collection. This short coat or oversized jacket features a straight and easy cut that falls below the hip, long full sleeves that are beautifully gathered at the sleeve cap and side slit pockets. It has a buttoned front and is fully lined in black acetate. The coat is labeled “Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, Paris, Made in France“ and marked a French vintage size 40. Yves Saint Laurent was born in 1936 in Oran, Algeria and began his career as an assistant of Christian Dior. When Dior died in 1957, he became the artistic director. In 1962 he opened his own fashion house, and in 1966, he created his ready-to-wear line Rive Gauche. By the 1980s, Yves Saint Laurent was a true icon. He was the first living designer to receive a solo exhibition in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1983. He died in 2008. Excellent vintage condition. Seems to have been worn very little. Shoulders: 43 cm – 17" Bust: 110 cm – 43.3" Waist: 118 cm – 46.5" Hips: 128 cm – 50.4" Sleeve length: 62 cm – 24.4" Length: 75 cm – 29.5" Measurements are taken flat and then doubled for bust, waist and hips.

  • ISSEY MIYAKE S/S 1991 Documented Runway 'Dinosaur' Sleeves Black Silk Jacket
    By Issey Miyake
    Located in Munich, DE
    Important and rare documented Spring/Summer 1991 black 'Dinosaur' silk jacket by Issey Miyake as presented on the runway. The twin of this jacket walked the runway in several colours and fabrics. Versions of it are part of various fashion museums worldwide such as The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Powerhouse Collection of the MAAS Museum in Sydney. The linen model was photographed by renowned fashion photographer Irving Penn and is shown in the book "Irving Penn regards the work of Issey Miyake" published by Bulfinch. Please see the reference pictures and send us a note for a video sequence of the fashion show. Designed under the eye of Issey Miyake himself this stunning black silk jacket features a simple yet complex cut based on origami Japanese folding techniques. Both front and back are expertly pleated. Yet the star of this design are the long sleeves that are folded and pressed in such a way to create a zig zag line along the top of the sleeve which is reminiscent of a dinosaur's jagged back. The use of silk gazar is the perfect choice for this garment as the fabric combines qualities of delicacy with a gentle stiffness which is required to maintain the folded fabric form. The jacket is unlined and buttons up the center front. Labelled "Issey Miyake" and tagged a Japanese vintage size M. The jacket was purchased in 1991 by my couture client in Munich, Germany, and has not been on the market prior to this. Excellent vintage condition. Bust: 104 cm – 40.94" Waist: 82 cm – 32.28" Length: 53 cm – 20.87" Measurements for bust and waist are taken flat across from side seam to side seam and then DOUBLED.
