This characteristic ensemble of a black smoking jacket and a floor-length, black silk georgette skirt originate from the fall/winter line of 1985/86. The designs elegantly convey the feminine form. With "Le Smoking", a trouser suit for women, the fashion designer achieved the greatest influence in fashion history. Even today, the YSL smoking jacket is a cult object! The jacket is a French size 38 (US size 8) and the skirt is a French size 42 (US size 12). The outfit is in good condition with only slight traces of wear; spare buttons are enclosed. The skirt has a small tear in the georgette. The overall length of the jacket is 50 cm, the back width is 44 cm and the length of the sleeves is 58 cm. The skirt measures 110 cm in length; the waistband measures 38.5 cm.
