1960s Yves Saint Laurent Mohair Cloak

 

 

 

Call it what you will - poncho, cape, wrap or cloak - it's one fabulous piece of outerwear. Made by Yves Saint Laurent for his Rive Gauche collection, this is basically made to go over anything and everything, and lends a mega dose of French chic to even the simplest of outfits.  Buff colored wool and mohair fabric edged in taupe knit trim. Measuring 32" collar to hem in front and 40" in back, and labeled a vintage size 38, which is the bust measurement, it should fit almost any size from a modern 4 to a 12, bust and height (petites will be swallowed in it) being the key considerations. Excellent condition. $575
