1980s Yves Saint Laurent Red Leather Gold Stud Sash Belt Documented YSL
From his early days at Dior to posing nude in a 1971 advertisement for Pour Homme, Yves Saint Laurent has always been an expert in provocative fashion. This vintage belt reflects his keen ability to merge edginess and savoir faire. The wrap-style belt, which measures over 5 feet in length, is made from a buttery soft red leather. Punctuated by a bold pattern of 36 gold studs, the belt hangs with a satisfying drape. Ends are finished with elegantly rounded edges.
Originally featured in the 1989 YSL campaign on the stunning Linda Evangelista, this fashion forward belt was reprised in the pages of the fall 2016 issue of Porter magazine. Photographed by Terry Richardson, fashion editor George Cortina asserts that “A waist cinching belt creates a seductive silhouette for evening.” Indeed, delight yourself and others with this buttery red leather belt that exceeds the definition and scope of a fashion “accessory.”
