Try Yves Saint Laurent for a chic little shoulder bag

Like pretty much anyone who’s gotten the chance to fondle one in person, I’m seriously craving a Celine Classic Box Bag. Not only is the design perfectly edited on the outside, but it’s lined in the most deliciously soft and luxurious leather you can imagine, which makes it even more of a delight for the person that owns it than you would expect. The only problem, of course, is that those bags cost nearly four grand. Even I am not […] Read More

Yves Saint Laurent Linen Roady

The biggest release from YSL in the past few years was the Roady, which launched last September. The Roady is an utterly simple design that brings in an added touch which bumps up the aesthetic. I know many of you did not like just how simple the original Roady was, so this post will bring you nothing more than the first. But if you loved the Roady and you love having a spring bag in your collection, the Yves Saint […] Read More

Yves Saint Laurent to be renamed Saint Laurent Paris – what will become of the bags?

When I first heard the rumor that Yves Saint Laurent‘s new creative director Hedi Slimane was looking to change the iconic French luxury house’s name, admittedly, I scoffed. “Silly slow-news-day gossip that will never be substantiated,” I said to myself. Because what else could it be? Almost all of YSL’s branding over the last 10 years has centered squarely on the importance of the brand’s initials, and the Y in particular – from the incredibly popular Yves Saint Laurent Cabas […] Read More

Man Bag Monday: Yves Saint Laurent Logo Strap Leather Tote Bag

Almost two years ago I scoured the web and every store trying to track down this Yves Saint Laurent bag. Not only was I going crazy over it, but all of you were, too. It is so rugged and chic that it can easily be worn by a man or a woman. Simply put, I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS BAG. But the folks at YSL told me it was an older season bag and was no longer available, which really […] Read More

Yves Saint Laurent’s Muse Two Artisanal is both chic and socially responsible

Usually, women only ask two things of their handbags: That they be fabulous and functional. Increasingly, though, some women are making a third request of their clothing and accessories: That it also has a sense of social responsibility. Admittedly not everyone cares about what impact their purchases have on the world or on the people who produced them, but the number of people who do are growing, which makes it fashionable for global brand to debut products like the limited […] Read More

PurseBlog Asks: Would You Go Full Glitter for Daytime?

Glitter, in any form, presents some logistical challenges. First, it gets on everything. Second, it won’t come off. It’s the herpes of the craft world; once you’ve got glitter, it’s yours forever. Third, it is, in the immortal words of one Tim Gunn, a lot of look. All of that forms the context in which we must consider the Saint Laurent Lulu Bunny Glitter Finish Bag, which, based on its quick sell-out at Net-a-Porter, clearly has some fans. Daytime glitter […] Read More

Bag Battles: Fendi Petit 2Jours vs Saint Laurent Micro Sac Du Jour

[poll id=”166″] There was a lot of debate when I named the Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour as the bag of the week back in March. While Amanda and I differ on how much we like the Sac Du Jour, we have been on the same page about our admiration for the Fendi 2Jours all along. Both of these bags continue to garner attention in the accessory world, and both are on my wish list as bags I love. I’m […] Read More
