Documented F/W 1990-91 Yves Saint Laurent Red Jacket

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


This wonderful jacket is such a strong statement piece. Its twin walked the Fall/Winter 1990-91 runway. In this collection Yves touch upon and built on his famous "Chinese Collection" of 1977/78. I absolutely love it and instantly had to have it for the shop when I spotted it. This is Yves Saint Laurent at his best and the cut is tremendously flattering once it is slipped on. The silk brocade is the perfect blue undertone red that works on most skin tones. It has a slightly puffed design that is woven through the fabric that gives it the most fabulous texture and depth. The seams are piped in black silk cord and really define the jacket and the lovely lines it has. I love the high collar and those four large silk cord frog knots that close the jacket down the front. The peplum at the hip adds shape and drama and gives it a couture flare. This is really a fabulous and well constructed jacket 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.
