1970's Yves Saint Laurent Black & White Marabou-Feather Jacket

Breathtaking black & white striped marabout-feather jacket from the infamous Rive Gauche collection during the mid-1970's.
Pieces from this decade are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. I adore the playful use of feathers and the easy-to-wear chubby silhouette. The jacket zippers up the front with leather accents. It is wearable and comfortable, yet has its own avant-garde elements. When one needs an alternative to fur, but still wants a glamourous garment to warm you up and not weigh you down, feathers are a wonderful choice.

"In the mid-1970s the relevance of haute couture was seriously debated. The political and social upheaval of the 1960s, the emergence of a plethora of creative ready-to-wear designers, and the increasing preference for a sportswear approach to dressing as represented by American fashion were among the shifts in lifestyles and taste that appeared to sound the death knell of the calcified and elitist world of the maisons de couture. It was at this time that Yves Saint Laurent, haute couture’s preeminent practitioner, threw caution to the prevailing winds with a collection of unrivaled fantasy and luxury."
