This is an iconic vintage Yves Saint Laurent chocolate brown velvet jacket with black taffeta ruffle trim from the Fall/Winter 1976/77 ready to wear collection which was inspired by the YSL Haute Couture Russian Collection, inspired by the Ballet Russes. 

The jacket has the signature YSL black ball buttons and black taffeta trim creating a high neck and the cuffs. It has a curved hemline, and we especially love the way the shoulders are gathered.

We tied a black grossgrain ribbon around the waist to style the jacket like the original ad, but it does not come with a belt.

Excellent condition.

Labeled Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, made in France. We have documented the piece with an original advertisement. (not included).

Marked as size 40, but fits like a size small.

BUST: 36"

WAIST: 26"


SLEEVES: 27" including taffeta ruffle trim
