This One is for Catherine Baba

This Yves Saint Laurent rive gauche turquoise oversized jacket with a rolled and padded collar and hem is not for everyone.

I was not even certain it was for me when I was first shown it.  But then I thought about how Saint Laurent revisited the Chinese style jacket throughout his career and that was irresistible.

It is a good collector's piece - and it is wearable for the right person.  Someone who loves Saint Laurent, someone with a strong personal style, someone who would wear it with Guerlain's Geisha red lipstick, whose home would smell like Cire Trudon's Ernesto leather and tobacco candle, and someone who loves Paris.  Someone like Catherine Baba.
