Vintage Lesage Embroidered Cuff Bracelet


Condition: Excellent
Price: Sold


Haute couture is the dream around which the fashion world revolves. One embroidery house, Maison Lesage, has been stitching up lush, richly detailed fabric pieces for couturiers like Balenciaga, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Schiaparelli since the inception of haute couture in the mid-1800s. When you see Chanel send a richly beaded, sequined, or feathered garment down the runway, you are seeing a piece of Maison Lesage art. Lesage launched a line of embroidered accessories in 1987, created by Gérard Trémolet and sold in the Lesage boutique opened that year on the Place Vendome on the former site of Schiaparelli's business. After the shop closed in 1992, the accessories were sold in department stores around the world.

This vintage Lesage cuff features microsequins and beads in crystal, pink and black overlaid over a base of silk floss on gilt metal.

  • Signed Lesage Paris 
  • Hand made
  • Gold-plated metal, multi-colored round and emerald shape beads and sequins
  • Excellent vintage condition with all sequins and beads present. Hardware is bright, with minor to no scratches or chips.
