1960s Yves Saint Laurent Navy Wool Pea Coat

 

 

The term ‘pea coat’ tends to convey a somewhat ordinary style that is entirely absent in this particular case, since Yves St. Laurent wasn’t ever one to design anything 'ordinary'. Nothing less than fabulous in a navy blue wool melton, this double breasted pea coat has a wide, flat Peter Pan style collar, and oversized flapped patch pockets at each hip. With princess seaming in front and a very high cut arm, the fit is a little more streamlined than you would typically expect from a traditional pea coat. Weighty and warm, this is perfect coat over wool slacks or jeans, being both practical and chic in a way that only Saint Laurent could achieve. Made for St. Laurent's Rive Gauche collection, it is fully lined in navy silk, and except that the label is torn - if that matters to you - the condition is otherwise excellent.
