Yves Saint Laurent suede Cossack inspired jacket, circa 1976

About

Yves Saint Laurent explored folkloric dressing without always visiting the places that inspired him. He often expressed, that his interests, were predominantly about the effects folkloric clothing had on his imagination and designs. The Russian collection of Fall/Winter 1976-1977, Saint Laurent most famous collection, is a perfect example of reality transformed into a fairytale. It is for this reason that the collection is often dubbed the "Rich peasant" or Hippie deluxe" collection. The design of this jacket undoubtedly drew from Russia's Cossack warrior uniforms. Familiar Cossack features such as the tight fastening at the chest with oblong shaped buttons and loop fasteners are present. Yet the fluid and softness of the suede combined with the delicate adornment of handcrafted braid trimmings and decorative stitches is a celebration of the beauty of folkloric craftsmanship and artisanal vocabulary. The design is pared-down and stylistic. And it's not surprising that one of the most iconic pieces from the Russian collection is the Cossack sable coat, a longer version of this jacket. This piece will be of serious of interest for collectors of early Yves Saint Laurent's designs. Stylist notes: A versatile piece that can be worn combined with a printed maxi skirt and printed shirt for a chic daytime look.
