YVES SAINT LAURENT c. 1976 Russian Collection Vintage Brown Velvet Skirt Suit Size XS

An outstanding, rare Yves Saint Laurent skirt suit from c. 1976 (Russian Collection). The suit is made of a heavy rich brown velvet, utterly soft and of first-class quality. It consists of a long redingote jacket and a widely flared calf-length skirt. The jacket features a fitted bodice with a small stand-up collar and closes with a row of nine round buttons at the front. From the waist down, the jacket flares out into an opulent peplum. The sleeves are ultrawide. Along seams and edges the jacket features decorative black trimmings. The skirt has a small waist and is widely flared, sitting at calf-length. It features hidden side pockets and closes with a back zipper and a metal hook & eye. 100% cotton, fully lined. Made in France. Jacket and skirt are a striking ensemble but could of course be worn separately as well.

Excellent. Very minor signs of use to the skirt's velvet (bottom front).
