Yves Saint Laurent YSL Russian Collection Red suede Black Gold belt, 1970s
In 1976 Yves Saint Laurent debuted what has become known as his Russian collection. Incorporating silhouettes and styles for the lauded performance troupe the Ballet Ruses, Saint Laurent capitalizes on a folk aesthetic with vivid colors and craftsman detailing. Accessories were prominent in this collection, especially a series of leather or suede belts decorated with silk passementerie details and tassels.
This belt from the stated collection is made from a rich primary red suede that is bordered with passementerie braids of black and gold and is backed with a matte black leather. The unique rounded shape at the center of this YSL belt, aside from the striking color combination, is what gives it its folk charm. There, it is able to be tied with two black cords finished with black wooden spherical beads. The designed quality of this belt is sure to accentuate the waistline and add a creative dimension to dressy or formal looks.
Size estimate: XS/S
Width: 2 inches
Length: Belt is 25 inches with 22 inches of black rope on either side
This highly collectable YSL belt is in excellent condition as it is unworn and still has the YSL store tags attached. On the leather backing of the belt, the YSL logo and product serial number are printed at the back. 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.
