YVES SAINT LAURENT 1970s Vintage Black Wool Maxi Cape w/ Tassels One-Size

Capes played a major role in Yves Saint Laurent's oeuvre and appeared in many of his collections over the decades. This example, probably from the 1970s, is crafted from a soft and lightweight black wool fabric and features a black wool capelet and long twisted cords with the most beautiful silky tassels.

The full-length cape is cut flared with a hem circumference of approximately 2,5 meters/2.7 yards and moves dramatically when worn. It ties to close at the front. One of Yves Saint Laurent's landmark designs, in excellent condition.

No composition label, probably 100% wool. Unlined. Made in France.
