1990s Yves Saint Laurent Black Passementerie Tassel Shoulder Belt Bag YSL


Yves Saint Laurent had a distinct knack for unexpected bursts of bold femininity. From his early work in Paris, where he became successor to Christian Dior at the age of 21, it was evident that Saint Laurent was deeply interested in gender identity. This black satin bag evokes girlish femininity with a series of candy colored tassels hanging in a flirty little arc. The main body of the purse is constructed from coiled and stitched satin cording, creating fabulous texture against everything from a cocktail dress to jeans and a t-shirt. Indulgently long satin cording can be tied and looped at the shoulder, or secured around the waist as a belt. Generous tassels in sprite colors weigh down the ends of the cording. As if the elan of the bag was not enough, an engraved gold logo pendant confirms that this enchanting accessory was indeed designed by a true fashion master. Measurements: Width: 7 inches Height: 6.5 inches Straps: 40 inches (adjustable) This c1990 handbag by Yves Saint Laurent is in excellent condition. Made from coiled satin cording and embellished with multi-colored tassels, this handbag’s long straps can be looped together over the shoulder or tied around the waist for a novel belt bag. An envelope closure is formed by a coiled satin flap edged with tassels. 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.
