wool, synthetic, plastic buttons

Fantastic 80s Yves Saint Laurent plaid jacket, skirt, suit made in France for his high end Rive Gauche line. All wool in a bold medium blue tartan (plaid) with black and white as well as thinner yellow and red lines.

Single-breasted two button down waisted jacket has an uber wide notched collar and power shoulder pads. There are four pockets: two working button down breast patch pockets and two lower welt pockets. The tartan has been expertly matched. The classy buttons are a thick navy blue plastic with gold-toned rims. Three smaller matching, as well as working, buttons on each of the vented turned up winged cuffs.

The skirt sits high, as was the fashion in the 80s and has a few gentle gathers at back. Two perfectly hidden side pockets and a kick pleat was added for ease of movement. It does up on the side with a perfectly hidden nylon zipper with metal pull topped with a hook and bar.

Both the skirt and the jacket are fully lined in a satiny smooth black synthetic. It is exceptionally well made - we expect no less from Monsieur Saint Laurent's Rive Gauche line - and great attention has been paid to lining up the tartan with precision.

From the late, great Monsieur Saint Laurent to you with… Love!

Vintage content label: missing, but the tartan is all wool and the lining a smooth satiny synthetic.

Vintage label size: 36 and we estimate this would best fit a current size extra small (about a size 2 US) as the skirt was a tight fit on our small dress form.

Please rely on the following for fit and make allowances where necessary for ease of movement:

MEASUREMENTS (laid flat and taken on the outside then doubled in inches - fabric is thick with no give):

JACKET:
Shoulder to shoulder - padded: 17
Arm: 23 inseam: 16.25

VINTAGE RATING / CONDITION (see chart on Shipping and Policy page):
Very good condition! The back vent has lost a few stitches - about 1.5. It will require a few stitches along the seam and across - see pointer on close up. As well, the bar of the hook and bar is loose at the top and will also require a few stitches. If not for that, the skirt as well as the jacket have had minimal wear: no holes, tears, rips, craters, stains, odors… All buttons on the jacket are accounted for, and original, and the two replacements are still on the inside: one small and one large. Fabulous!
