I have posted many pictures of my Christopher Ross belt collection, but another line of vintage belts that I'm pretty passionate about is Laloon. Laloon is a mysterious line, and almost impossible to find. I have managed to collect only 5 of them over time. Pictured below is my elephant. It's hard to tell how large he is, but he's huge, 8 inches wide.
The lion. This one has a very interesting face.
Lastly…the Horse. I've been looking for the horse forever. I was so excited to see it on E-bay. I knew it existed, but I had never seen it until mine arrived. It's really incredible. It's 10 inches by 5 inches. Really massive. They are all like small animal sculptures…I think that's why I like them so much. I'm assuming they were all made in the 80's, but it's impossible to find even a scrap of information about Laloon. If anybody out there knows more, please share.
I just took a load of Mimi buckles to the local shoe repair to have belts made for them..I should have them up on the site in a couple of weeks. There are a lot of great tigers and other cats. I'll let you know when they are up.
