This Saint Laurent belt designed along the lines of a rosary can also be worn as a necklace. Probably made in the 1980s, it combines two essential elements of Yves Saint Laurent’s vocabulary: the heart and precious wood.

 

Saint Laurent used hearts from his first collection in 1962 until his last in 2001. Meanwhile, wood reflects his penchant for natural materials and a taste for ethnic jewelry shared with Loulou de la Falaise, his muse and jewelry designer. I love the sensuality of this material, its discreet veins, its organic feel.
