Saint Laurent Classic Sac De Jour

Categories:Other Brands

saint_laurent_classic-sac-de-jour2Before I start on the post proper, let’s address the elephant in the room since I’m pretty sure most of you will come to an instant conclusion even if you’ve read the post. And I’ve figured if Saint Laurent has no qualms pushing this particular design out, they won’t have an issue with people talking about it either.

At first glance it does look like the Birkin, and even after looking at it for a good 1968 seconds, it still looks like a Birkin. The shape’s pretty similar, as are the handles and even the tabbed gusset details (one on each side of the handle) won’t look out of place on the aforementioned bag, but that’s just about it.

Which means it’s time to wax lyrical about why I’m loving the Saint Laurent Classic Sac De Jour so much.

For starters, you can’t not love its pared-down simplicity and it’s probably safe to say that Hedi Slimane referenced JPG’s Shadow Birkin, which has also got to be one of my favourite variants of all time.

And then there are the thoughtful touches, from the brass feet to a zip that goes across the top of the bag that’s definitely useful. Polished calfskin on the outside and lined with suede, the made-in-Italy piece has compartments galore on the inside, good for all manner of personals.

saint_laurent_classic-sac-de-jour1Available in 2 sizes (or that’s what I’ve gathered so far), the one that measures almost 40 cm across retails for USD3950 (or HKD25,550) and will come in at least 4 hues: Beige, Purple, Red and of course, Black. Due to be released in the coming months, I’ll counting the days till I finally get to road test one in person.

Yves Saint Laurent is famous for designing and making tote bags. Let’s look at the past, some have gone all the way to the status of iconic – The Saint Laurent Chyc Tote, the Sac de Jour Tote, The Muse Bag and of course the newest Duffle Bags in different sizes.

And its not a coincidence that they keep producing gorgeous tote bags, they somehow know how to blend it with traditional elements. For example, the Saint Laurent Baby Monogram Cabas Tote Bag that we’ve featured this week, the big golden YSL signature on the front is simply to-die-for.

The Saint Laurent Bag I Want Right Now

Categories:Other Brands

Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Crocodile Embossed Small Tote

I have a few bags on my current wish list that I’ll be sharing with you soon, but there is one bag that I decided I really wanted just this week, and ever since, I can’t get it out of my mind. It’s not a new design or a new take on an existing design; it’s just lovely and I realized I would love adding it to my wardrobe.

The bag I’m lusting after is the Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Small Croc-Embossed Tote, and it’s everything I want in a bag right now. The Sac De Jour is a bag Amanda and I have different opinions on; she’s not a fan, but I am. [Ed. Note: I like the little versions! -Amanda] I’ve remained a fan, and when I saw this exact version, I knew I had found the one for me.

I love the small size of this bag, though Saint Laurent has plenty of sizes for the bag, including a Micro version. The one that I love the most is made with black matte leather that has a texturized, embossed crocodile finish.

I suppose it could be the fact that I’m currently in NYC and reminded of how much I love wearing black, or how lately I have a sneaker obsession and seem to only wear sneakers and jeans, but this bag seems to be the one that will complement my current style best. I’m not alone when it comes to loving the Sac de Jour; in fact, tons of celebrities are obsessed with it.

If you are also interested in a Sac de Jour, be sure to check out our ultimate Saint Laurent Sac de Jour bag guide. If this bag ends up in my closet, I will be sure to give you a full review. I won’t be buying it right away, though, because even though this is the small size (12.5″ x 4″ x 10.5″)

Saint Laurent Classic Monogram Shoulder Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Saint-Laurent-Classic-Monogram-Shoulder-Bag

Stare at it, endlessly.

It’s so white, easy, straightforward and clean.

My goodness, it’s probably even cleaner than my room.

But anyways, allow me to present one of the forbidden beauties from Yves Saint Laurent (yes, I still say ‘Yves’), it’s classic-alive-again.

It’s a memory piece – sending a clear message that the classic YSL still lives on. It’s a luxurious accessory, a collectable item to wear in all season.

It’s timeless.

It’s elegant.

And it’s pure feminine.

The sleek style is ideal for nonchalant looks. It comes with a leather strap to sling over your shoulder and toting a few essentials from day to night.

The golden YSL logo on the front is clear and notable, yet very chic – a statement-maker. The bag comes with two-way zipped on top. Made from calf leather, durable and strong.

If you take a good care of Saint Laurent Classic Monogram Bag, it will become more valuable as the years go by. But if white is too scary to invest, then perhaps you can fall in love with light-pink.

Also gorgeous and tasty!

Measuring 4.5’ x 6.5’ x 2’ inches (H x W x D), priced at $1090 USD and €669 euro via MyTheresa.

Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour Tote

Categories:Other Brands

Saint-Laurent-Nano-Sac-de-Jour-Tote-2

It has been criticized that the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote is very similar to the Hermes Birkin, but nevertheless, it’s been well received in the bag-obsessed ladies. Perhaps because of its impeccable elegance or because its been hand-crafted in Italy (we love Italian Artisans!).

Now, even the newbies has heard about the Sac de Jour Tote, it’s sized in medium, it’s sized in small and recently we found out that it’s also sized in ‘baby’. Yes, the smallest was size the baby and how we love this mini bag.

The baby size is lovely, it’s ideal whenever you don’t feel like carrying an oversized handbag but still want to tote your day. It’s also perfect for the evening diners or when you’re on a date. But after Saint Laurent released their latest Psych Rock Collection, we discovered that the ‘Sac de Jour Tote’ is also made in ‘Nano size’. Yes, it’s even smaller, can you belief that?

The Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour tote is so-tiny that you can carry it with just one hand. It’s like a large purse, but not yet the size like the Wallet on Chains. This signature Saint Laurent Bag comes with tubular handles, accordion sides and compression strap with tabs. It’s embossed with Saint Laurent signature on the front and comes with a removable strap.

Crafted from calf leather, measuring 22 x 18 x 11 cm, priced at $1990 USD and 1490 euro’s via Saint Laurent e-store.
