YVES SAINT LAURENT F/W 1982 Documented 3 pc. Velvet Evening Set Size XS

2950 EUR
An incredible and very rare Yves Saint Laurent evening set from F/W 1982. The set comprises a velvet jacket with spectacular puff sleeves, a velvet skirt and the original matching suede bag. The jacket is a masterpiece. It features a slim bodice with a beautiful peplum waist, a front closure with black cut glass buttons and ultrawide puff sleeves with opulent ruffles and buttoned ruffled cuffs. The skirt is widely flared and sits at calf-length. It has hidden side pockets and closes with a zipper and a metal hook & eye at the side. Both pieces are made from Saint Laurent's typical first-class quality velvet in a dark bottle green. The sleeves are made from a rustling silk taffeta with an iridescent sheen. The skirt is trimmed with a braided black edge - one of Saint Laurent's signature design elements. The set comes with its matching suede bag featuring a flap with reptile embossed leather edges and hidden snap button closure and a twisted cord strap. Lined in green grosgrain fabric. Made in France.

Excellent. Only minimal, very minor signs of wear that do not detract in any way. Only particular flaw is a (probably production-related) mark to the back of the left puff sleeve (see detail picture).

The jacket is tagged F 38 and will fit a D 34-36, F 36-38, I 40-42, US 4-6, UK 8-10, XS-SMALL. The skirt is tagged F 36 and will fit a D 32-34, F 34-36, I 38-40, US 2-4, UK 6-8, XXS-XS.
