1970s Yves Saint Laurent Purple Pleated Silk Wide Cummerbund Belt


A commendable aspect to Yves Saint Laurent’s designs was his ability to seamlessly create a parity between menswear styles and elevated women’s aesthetic. From his sleek styling of the iconic Le Smoking tuxedo jacket to linear shirting, Saint Laurent capitalizes on elements of tailoring and color coordination to bring together a strong look. This Rive Gauche belt is done in the style of a tuxedo cummerbund in an ultraviolet silk satin. The belt is classically horizontally pleated and does well with a trouser look and a blazer. The vivid color adds an excellent contrast to a formal ensemble pairing well with neutrals or other bold colors alike. Measurements: Width: 5 inches Waist: 28.5 inches In excellent condition, this YSL cummerbund is lined in a matching purple lining. It closes at the back with a hidden series of hooks and eyes. Professionally cleaned, 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.
