Anyone who lives in a major metropolis knows its a Jungle out There! Perhaps, back in 1968, Yves Saint Laurent recognized the dangers of city dwelling when he designed one of his most memorable looks, the Safari. Of course, the Safari has only further been enhanced by the brilliant photo of Veruschka shot by Franco Rubartelli and featured in the current Costume Institute exhibition, The Model as Muse, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. We haven't given our blog readers a Decades 101 exam in awhile, but let's give you a cheat sheet: this is an original YSL Rive Gauche safari from 1968 and if you want to get an "A" in Decades 101, we only hope you end up with this icon in your closet and on your body. Question: Why do you need this original safari in your closet? It's a rhetorical question. End of Test.

Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche original safari, 1968. Modern 4 (petite length sleeve). SOLD
