YSL Vintage Gold Metal Black Tassel Evening Bag / Clutch 1980s


This clutch is so iconic that Saint Laurent still makes mini bags inspired by it. Although chic, the modern-day iterations are really no match for this vintage one. It just may find a home displayed on your bureau or bookshelf, rather than hidden away in your closet—that is, when you’re not taking it out on the town.

Of course, on the town is where it truly belongs. Sculpted from a shiny gold-tone metal, toted by a black-and-gold twisted silk cord and flanked by two robust tassels, it is the ultimate party bag. The casing features horizontal ribs to better catch the night’s lights and then the YSL insignia to open it. A gold leather interior completes this little gem that will only increase in value as the years pass.


Length: 6 inches

Height: 3.5 inches

Depth: 2.5 inches

Strap: 22 inches from the top of the bag

This vintage Yves Saint Laurent evening bag from the Eighties is in good condition. It reflects some light wear, with surface scratches on the front of the bag. These scratches are only obvious when examined up close (see image 9). The inside of the bag is clean and pristine, and the tassels are full and in beautiful condition.

The bag is made from shiny gold-tone metal with ribbing on its exterior. It opens and closes via a YSL insignia. It is held by a black-and-gold twisted silk cord that ends in the pair of tassels. Gold leather lines the interior. 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.
