1990s Yves Saint Laurent Black White Plaid Vest YSL
YSL never shied away from using masculine silhouettes in clean, tailored forms for his womenswear. Many of his collections featured items such as suiting, leather jackets, and trousers. Undergoing a bit of turmoil during the 90s, the house nonetheless persisted through the efforts of then creative directors Alber Elbaz and Hedi Slimane.
Done in a wool fabric, this ca. 1990s YSL vest dons a bold white and black matched plaid. The neckline offers a sharp V-shape that is mirrored by the jagged angles of the hemline. Thorough, the vest is fitted superbly about the waist and back. At either sider there is a decorative welt pocket at the waistline. This vest can be paired with a suit for added professional appeal or as a waistcoat to a jean look for a stylish daywear option.
