Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Leopard Print Pony Fur Blazer Jacket YSL
A fashion superstar, Yves Saint Laurent was no stranger to prints and frequently incorporated them into his collections. Leopard is a staple of the YSL wardrobe, and is a print that was especially popular during the 80s and 90s. Though celebrated for his haute couture, Laurent’s Rive Gauche ready- to-wear line was the first success of its kind in France, and was eventually recognized as one of his most creative endeavors. YSL often incorporated elements from mainstream pop-culture into the line, creating lighthearted and unexpected interpretations of popular prints that continue to resonate.
Done in pony fur, this luxurious 80s Rive Gauche jacket features a leopard print in rich tones of honey and chocolate brown. The menswear inspired jacket begins with a high notch lapel, creating a v opening at the neck. The long sleeves reach the wrist with a wooden button closure at the back of each cuff, offering a nice contrast of texture that gives this jacket a sleek, polished look.
