1980s Yves Saint Laurent Multicolored Passementerie Braided Belt YSL


An accent of color can work wonders on any outfit. Often times paying homage to artists and having been in an elite circle of people in the arts industry such as Andy Warhol, Yves Saint Laurent surely understood the importance of balance and vibrancy when it came to his ensembles. Saint Laurent accessories often add just enough interest through the skillful usage of color and texture.

This 1980s belt is made of several cords of red, sapphire blue, black, olive green, rust, and magenta braided into a fishtail passementerie design. The buckle contrasts the psychedelic weaving as a simple O-ring covered in black cording. The fishtail braid emphasizes the sheen of the cording giving a mermaid gloss to the belt.

Size estimate: One size fits most


Length: fits up to a 31 inch waist

Width: 2 inches

Made of silk or nylon cording, this YSL belt is a colorful option for a colorful wearer. It is in excellent condition and on the reverse near the buckle a gold token engraved with “Yves Saint Laurent, Rive Gauche” can be found. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
