Yves Saint Laurent multicolored braided tassel and beaded belt ysl 1990s
This braided belt is made from silk cords of orange, teal, olive green and deep rust tones
The belt is quite long, designed to be a wrap belt which highlights the belt’s end that incorporates a combination of passementerie knots of the espresso brown cord and a sequence of presumably onyx ball beads, and veined discs made of agate stone
The bead pattern terminates with tassels—one made of the olive green cord and the other in deep rust
The weaving of the cord in the multiple color creates a satisfying visual rhythm while the beadwork at the ends introduces a creative finish that offers some versatility to this accessory to be worn as a belt, possibly a necklace or even add some pizzazz to a basic cross-body by using it as a strap
The combination of the silk cording, the onyx beads, and the agate stone allow for a harmony of natural elements
The belt is fully adjustable which gives it the bonus of being utilized in a variety of ways.
Length: 78 inches of braided belt, 12 inches of bead and tassel embellishment on each end.
