Yves Saint Laurent 1980s Rope belt with Bronze Metallic Clasp and Cabochons
This unusual Yves Saint Laurent vintage belt is in superb condition and would add instant glamour to even the most understated ensemble. The belt is made up of four pieces of (pleasingly chunky), copper/ rust red elasticated cord, and is fastened by an ornate metallic bronze clasp at the front. Small metal bands connect the cord at the reverse of the belt, however the emphasis is on the clasp, which is of considerable weight and features an Indian style embossed pattern and cabochon detail on each side. The designers signature can be found on the reverse side of the clasp (as detailed above) . The only notable flaw is a tiny thread that has pulled towards the centre reverse of the piece. This is barely noticeable however due to its location. The belt will fit nearly all sizes and measures a minimum 26 inches but stretches to 44 inches.
