Belts are an essential element of an outfit. The buckle, the size, the color, and the style make the silhouette. As there are countless types of belts on the market, Icon-Icon offers you a selection of iconic belts from high-end brands and luxury houses.
This selection starts with a belt from Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection, which conveys the finesse and codes of the house. This belt is made of authentic vintage pearls and a thin chain on which gold, black, white, and crystal strass meet.
The belt stands out for its astucious versatility, as seen around Charlotte Casiraghi’s neck.
Amongst timeless belts, for their style and elegance, Hermès’s Kelly belt is the one that stands out the most. The famous princess Grace Kelly gave her name to the it-bag and a range of Hermes items. If you don’t know the story behind it, it comes from the day Grace Kelly hid her early pregnancy from paparazzi with her Hermès bag.
Here is the Kelly belt in size 18, made in Epsom calf leather, which is recognizable thanks to its legendary Kelly buckle, here opposed on a genuinely thin belt!
At Dior, we keep in mind the 30 Montaigne belt. This stylish and graphic belt, along with the bag, bears the name of the famous address 30 Avenue Montaigne. An iconic place wanted and decorated by the house’s founder itself.
The Louis Vuitton belt is a metonymy of the house’s flagship codes. Here the belt takes the initials of the founder Louis Vuitton affixed to an iconic belt cut in taurillon leather, one of the signature materials of the house!
The house of Prada translates its iconic nylon into a Prada belt with a military aura. Introduced in 1984 as a backpack, Prada Pocono, or Prada nylon, quickly became a fashion staple. Miuccia Prada’s move was considered a revolution at the time – heir to a luxury empire, Miuccia Prada understood before anyone else that modern luxury was all about embracing industrial beauty.
In the Prada belt version, the Pocono wins to look good on any figure.
At Gucci, we also celebrate the key codes cherished by the house around the belt. The iconic Gucci Double G belt reads: GG as in Guccio Gucci – the initials of the founder of the Italian house adorn the belt with a touch inspired by the 70s!
Alexander McQueen designed a corset belt around this key element of his collections. A black calf leather waist belt with a corset design detailed with cut-outs and an antique silver-finished buckle. Finished with printed ecru stitching. Eco brass hardware.
At Bottega Veneta, we celebrate the craftsmanship of leather weaving and bring Intrecciato, the signature of the Italian house, initiated in 1966 by Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro, on a chic and casual belt.
Celine affixes the graphic signature of its Triomphe logo on a royal blue belt, adorned with a gold finish. As the house’s signature logo, Triomphe has been part of Celine’s archives since the 1970s – this time unearthed and reinvented on an impossibly chic belt by Hedi Slimane when he took over the house in 2019.
In the Saint Laurent collections, there is a belt called Cassandre. A belt where the Saint-Laurent seal stands out in gold letters – a work of the graphic designer Cassandre, who, with this logo, challenges the rule by breaking the principle of not mixing words or fonts.
The vintage check belt from Burberry is another timeless piece, as it is linked to the legendary legacy of a great house. A Burberry belt cut from the Nova Check, introduced in 1924 at Burberry, is this white, black, and camel-colored tartan so complex that it links an aristocratic aura!
At Balenciaga, we spot the BB belt. Part of the womenswear collection, this leather belt was designed by Demna in 2019. The Balenciaga Hourglass logo seals the closure of a belt that replies to a classic and edgy vision of the house’s storytelling.
Finally, this selection ends with Margiela and its leather belt. A matte black belt that breathes the avant-garde elegance of the house, and is an essential piece to sign the look of the Fall / Winter season of 2022!
