About

Following his huge success with his "Saharienne", YSL regularly integrated his creations with a safari touch. This 80's ensemble illustrates perfectly this tendency. Made of a coton jacket (size FR 38) and a wrap skirt (size FR 40), this safari suit can be worn separately : the loose jacket with its wood buttons and two pockets will fit any trousers or jeans; the skirt will match your favorite t-shirt or casual top. Any combination will provide a cool look !
