New month, new bag from Saint Laurent and today’s focus is squarely (and quite aptly too) on this versatile little number known as the Medium Bellechasee that is equal parts chic and sharp in a smooth calfskin exterior that’s full on function and style.
This variation, which comes with a top handle, will remind you of a traditional briefcase/satchel that can be carried two ways. You can wear it across the body (or over the shoulder) or use it as a clutch. On the inside, you’ll find a roomy compartment that comes with its own interior slot pocket, as well two inner flap slots for all your important bits and bobs. In other words, enough space for most everything you need on any given day while you’re out and about with this little one.
What sets this chic satchel apart from Saint Laurent’s extensive line of bags? Besides its minimalist/vintage good looks (yes, you could argue it one of two ways), it would be how ‘plain’ it is, no large YSL logo on the flap, nothing gold or shiny, just the square clasp featuring brushed silver-tone hardware etched with the smallest of Saint Laurent logos.
In other words, simplicity is what makes this bag a winner when the criteria is all about quiet good looks. Available in Black (shown above), Dark Red and Navy, the 22 cm by 16 cm Medium Bellechasse retails for SGD2750 and will be available in Singapore this month.
