Yves Saint Laurent YSL Black Beaded Rope and Tassel Necklace Belt, 1990s
Simple designs with exquisite detailing Yves Saint Laurent accessories speak volumes. From his 1990s show, this rare black braided YSL belt was loaned to Vogue Arabia for a 2016 photoshoot where it was styled by George Cortina on model Yasmin Wijnaldum who wore it as a necklace and photographed by Inez and Vinoodh.
Likely a specialty piece made in limited quantities, this jet-black silk braided belt is detailed with hundreds of black faceted crystals at the center that are strung into separate strands bookended by encrusted rings flowing into tassels that also feature the black crystals. From the Vogue Arabia photo, this piece can double as an upscale belt or a dramatic dangling necklace matching with virtually anything due to the shimmering, chic black monochromatic scheme.
Length: 71 inches
Tassels: 4 inches
In excellent condition, this silk and jet-black beaded belt is highly collectable. On the near the center bead strands the gold Yves Saint Laurent logo medallion is affixed. 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.
