Yves Saint Laurent Gold Evening Coat w/ Jeweled Buttons YSL, 1990s


Glitz, glamour, and gold were the staples of Yves Saint Laurent in the 1990s. While YSL is known for exotic and eye-catching designs, the 90s incorporated a new layer of luxury to the mix.

From the 1991 collection, this evening coat is made from a silk-wool blend with gold lame threads. The fabric is similar to a matelassé impressed with an abstract fern texture. From a circular neckline, the coat begins with broad, padded shoulders moving into straight, relaxed set sleeves.

The coat has a simple, boxy silhouette that allows the fabric and texture to shine. Ending just above the knee, this evening jacket is extremely versatile. It can easily be styled as a stunning coat dress or makes for the perfect outerwear addition to dress up a classic formal ensemble.
