1970s Alex & Lee Macramé Rope Belt
The Most Amazing Vintage Belt Is Here! Circa 1970s, this Alex & Lee macrame belt features various styles of multi-strand ropes and cords which are twisted for a unique design. Includes various decorative accents which feature details such as quilting and amethyst stones. The buckle is a combination of a disc made of agate stone and a leaf shape finished with a gold, black and glitter speckled resin. Strands of rhinestones hang from the front. An amazing and unique belt, filled with details you can't miss!! Alex & Lee were an amazing duo who began collaborating on found object jewelry in 1970. In the early 1970s the artists were then drawn west to San Francisco where they established their place in the Art to Wear movement championed by Sandra Sakata and her legendary store Obiko. Their work was unisex and was worn by Salvador Dali and admired by people such as Cher and Elton John. In 1981 they designed for Geoffrey Beene's runway and Oscar De La Renta, leading them to win the Cody Award (CFDA Award) in 1982. Sold at Bergdorf Goodman until 1986 , the vintage Alex & Lee pieces are quite rare today.
