1976-77 Yves Saint Laurent Russian Collection Red Braided Tie Belt

This is an incredible belt by Yves Saint Laurent and dates to the time period from when he was creating his famous Russian collection. You can see in the reference photos how this style of belt was used in a variety of colors and finishing details to perfectly set off the collection. This one is a beautiful cool red canvas on a red leather base combination. It is trimmed with a red, white and blue braiding with long red and blue braided ties. At the end of each tie is a knot and a large glossy red bead. It simply wraps and ties at the front and can top just about anything. This is an important piece of fashion history and a rare find. Excellent condition

Marked a brand size 2 and measures 25" from end to end of the actual belt part and then the braided ties extend a 21" on either side. The total length including the ties is 67". The belt itself is 2.5" wide. Perhaps a touch of grubbiness to the braiding but no true flaws
