Ferre's Corset-Chic Belt

Here at Decades, we're inundated with requests for belts by 1980s megadesigner Azzedine Alaia. While it's next to impossible to find those pieces today--smart girls know that a great Alaia belt is truly rare and worth holding on to--we are taken by the stylistic resemblence born in this belt by Gianfranco Ferre. Ferre, of course, catapulted to fame while at the helm of Dior, but pieces from his eponymous collection are in great demand today. We've included photos of the black leather corset belt, as well as a clipping from Italian Vogue showing the ever-charismatic Brooke Shields in head-to-toe Ferre (belt included!).

Gianfranco Ferre Black Leather Corset Belt with Geometric Contrast Stitching and Back Buckle, c. early 1980s. Fits a contemporary size 4. SOLD
