Yves Saint Laurent Gold Metal Belt YSL 1989

$1,900

About the Item

Yves Saint Laurent is renowned for his haute couture and Rive Gauche collections, but his remarkable accessories are also worthy of acclaim. As his admirers and collaborators already know, YSL loved using gold lame fabrics, gold buttons, earrings, brooches, belts, and other gold accessories to add light and gravitas to his designs. As Laurent told Vogue in 1983, he saw women as “objects of adoration… as idols to be adorned with gold.” YSL commissioned celebrated French couture jeweler Robert Goossens in the 1970s, who had previously worked closely with Gabrielle Chanel and Balenciaga, to create everything from hand mirrors to limited-edition perfume bottles, and of course, gold jewelry. As a designer, Goossens favored and drew inspiration from medieval, Roman, Byzantine, and Persian civilizations, which was reflected in his work. This exquisite Yves Saint Laurent hammered gold belt was seen on the 1989 Spring/Summer runway and was styled with several outfits to highlight its versatility. Made by French jeweler and goldsmith Robert Goossens, also known as Monsieur Bijou, this handmade belt is crafted from a durable, lightweight metal that was then plated in 24-carat gold. It features a spiral design that feels elemental and otherworldly, evoking everything from snakes and scrollwork to ancient Greek fashions. Measurements: Waist: up to 27 inches Front width: 3 inches Back: 1.5 inches The almost seamless gold belt fastens with a concealed hook closure at the center front and the inside is stamped with the maker’s mark: "Yves Saint Laurent, Rive Gauche, Made in France.” A rare addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this exquisite belt is a special piece of fashion history that will retain its splendor for many years to come, encircling the wearer's waist in a shimmering band of gold. High-quality vintage accessories 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. - Follow us on Instagram @BASHAGOLD
