Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Based on Yves famous "Chinese" collection of 1977/78 this is an amazing jacket that I absolutely love. Everything about it screams YSL and once on it is extremely flattering. The silk brocade is a blue toned red that works on most skin tones. It has a slightly puffed design woven through the fabric that gives it the most fabulous texture. The seams are piped in black silk cord and really define the jacket and the lovely lines. I love the high collar and those four fantastic and huge frog knots that close the jacket down the front. The peplum at the hip adds shape and drama. A really fabulous piece that will add instant glamor to any outfit whether you dress it up or down. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a beautiful red satin and closes at the front with the frog knots as shown. Three braided decorative buttons on each cuff.
