YVES SAINT LAURENT c. 1980 Documented Ikat Skirt Suit Size S
A stunning Yves Saint Laurent ikat pattern set from 1980 comprising a knit jacket and the matching skirt. The beautiful knitted wool jacket features tapered sleeves with sculpted, slightly puffed shoulders, a fitted waist and finishes with a flared peplum. Five original front buttons. The pleated skirt is made of a lightweight wool fabric and sits a few inches below the knee. It closes to the side with a zipper and a metal hook and eye fastening. Both pieces feature a striking pattern which resembles classic Navajo or Ikat designs. Beautiful colours - vibrant emerald green, purple, pink and red meet black and white. Both pieces are unlined. Made in France. A rare, collectible and very wearable set - both jacket and skirt make for amazing separates.
