1970s Yves Saint Laurent YSL Tortoiseshell Bakelite Belt

The neat thing about this belt by famed designer, Yves Saint Laurent, is that not only can it be worn as a swinging belt.....it can also be worn as a chunky necklace! The belt links are open rectangles made of Bakelite to resemble tortoiseshell. The shade of brown is warm and wonderful and this belt is so attractive.....either way that you choose to wear it. The Bakelite links are joined by gold tone metal links which really add to the stylish charm of this vintage belt. This belt can be adjusted by hooking the gold tone hook link into one of five round Bakelite links. A belt that has a retro look but with great modernistic style!

Condition: Very Good

The Bakelite links are in wonderful condition with very few signs of wear. There may be some very slight signs of wear to the metal links which would be normal for the age of this belt, but nothing that would take away from the overall appearance of the belt. The hangtag slightly tarnished and not as shiny as the gold tone links which join the Bakelite links.

Label: YSL imprinted on both sides of a metal hangtag


Total Length of Belt from Tip to Tip: 35 ¾"

The Bakelite Links Measure: 1 ¼" x 1 ¼"
