1980s Yves Saint Laurent Deep Grey Cashmere & Leather Braid Jacket


If you are looking for full on luxury this jacket has it in spades. It is made from a rich, thick cashmere with just a touch of wool added for structure. It is so soft and rich looking. The color is also amazing - it is a deep grey but has just a touch of an undertone color to it that seems to take on different hues in different lights - sometimes more black, sometimes a hint of blue and sometimes the feel of eggplant. The shoulders are squared off and the body is cut to skim in at the waist. Pockets sit on each hip. The finishing details just add to the rich feel of the jacket. the out edges are finished with a thick, flat cord and silk braiding and this circles the hem, runs up the front and around the notched collar and finishes each cuff. It closes with huge braided leather loops that fasten over big leather and cord topped buttons. These are not true frog knots but have that feel. Each sleeve has two more of those huge buttons adorning it and the buttons holes there are functional. The cashmere is the highest level and it looks to have never been worn. Excellent condition Fully lined in a deep midnight purple silk satin and closes at the front as shown. Tagged a vintage YSL 36 but the oversized cut will allow it to fit a variety of sizes depending on how you want to wear it.
