Vintage jewellery purveyor Omnēque is marking the 60th anniversary of Yves Saint Laurent with a chic retrospective of its jewellery throughout the decades. From the logo brooches of the 1980s to the timeless logo cuff, all the key YSL jewellery moments are here in all their glory.

‘YSL jewellery of the 1980s and 1990s was largely the responsibility of Saint Laurent’s muse Loulou de la Falaise,’ says head of vintage fashion creation at Omnēque, Charlotte Rogers. ‘Jewellery created under de la Falaise has an unmistakable quality that champions the house through bold, often wild bohemian design and liberal use of motifs and logos. The use of heavy plated metals and larger than life designs in the 1980s and 1990s has remained commercial and ever more collectable to this day.’

Pieces in the new capsule collection encompass these joyful design codes, bringing together the best of YSL couture in a nostalgic collection that focuses on the unmistakable logo, bold design and abundance of materials. Highlights include gold-plated heart chandelier earrings, an emerald panel necklace and a matching pair of cuffs, as well as the logo itself, drawn in gold or studded with diamonds. Thickly textured necklaces and avant-garde earrings in unexpected materials complete the eclectic curation.

‘The excellent quality manufacture, heavy metal plating and classical YSL glass details are icons of the brand,’ adds Rogers. ‘In recognition of the 60th anniversary of Yves Saint Laurent, the time is now to celebrate the alluring and sought-after YSL fashion jewellery. One of the most influential designers of the 20th century and ever ahead of its time the brand has created era-defining jewellery through the decades that holds both its fashion pedigree and value.’
