Be Original

We are overwhelmed with warm and fuzzy feelings by the extremely positive response to our Enter to Win... a vintage Chanel bag.  It truly makes us feel good and we wish that we could give one to everyone!  Thank you for all of the lovely and often funny emails!  

Be original is our motto (well, one of them) at RARE vintage.  We don't like to copy anyone nor do we need to.   But if imitation is the surest form of flattery when it comes to our blog, we are extremely flattered!

Now, on to our post 'Be Original'.  Yves Saint Laurent understood what it meant to be original and he too had his imitators as did and does Coco Chanel.  Coco Chanel actually liked having her designs copied because then she knew that they were a success and the imitation could never match the original.  

We are happy to be able to offer this very early Yves Saint Laurent classic and timeless black wool jersey pantsuit.  

The belt on the somewhat form fitting jacket (though it is meant to hang straight over the waist) sits low on the hips.  The fitted pants have a tiny flair at the bottom. 
Can't you just see Betty Catroux in Paris with Yves and the gang wearing this?!

1960s Yves Saint Laurent black pantsuit.  Size 4.
