Vintage 1980s Yves St Laurent Suit Jacket Brown Snakeskin Pattern Ladies M 40
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful vintage suit jacket made by Yves Saint Laurent as part of the “Variation” line. The Variation line was a cheaper line than the Rive Gauche line, but not cheap. The jacket is made in a black snakeskin patterned print on a brown background colour. The jacket has padded shoulders, shawl lapels, a two button closure and a slanted flap at either side that suggests pockets, but there aren’t any pockets. Please note that the jacket was too large for my mannequin so was pinned back.
Label: Yves Saint Laurent Variation. Made in Hungary. The Variation line was introduced by Yves Saint Laurent in 1983.
Material: 100% polyester with a 55% acetate and 45% cupro rayon lining. The exterior has a shiny appearance to it.
Sizing: Size 40 is indicated - this is a French size, which should be equivalent to a US size 8/10, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the garment into consideration:
Shoulders: 16 1/4” across shoulder seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 23 3/4” long from shoulder seam
Sleeve Inseam: 17 1/2”
Bust: 41” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 35 1/2” around
Overall length: 24”, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition - this jacket looks to have seen very little use and was well stored over the years.
This is a nice jacket by a renowned Paris design house - fun snakeskin print!
