The iconic YSL Muse, launched at the end of 2005 under the auspices of Creative Director Stefano Pilati confirmed its status as a best-seller and has since seen many different incarnations since then. First seen on Kate Moss, it quickly caught on with other celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Alba. The rest as they say is history and 3 years on, the Muse is recognised as an iconic classic that will stand the test of time. The Muse has also been reinterpreted and new bags created for YSL, including the Muse Two, the Muse Briefcase, the Muse Overnight and even the Muse Tote.
Not many people know that the YSL Muse comes in at least 4 sizes, Oversized (35cm by 46cm, top in buffalo leather), Large (28cm by 42cm), Medium (25cm by 36cm, bottom in ostrich leather) and finally Small (20cm by 28cm). Besides the usual buffalo/patent/embossed leather, the Muse has also been seen in exotic skins like python, crocodile and ostrich in a huge array of colours. Prices start from SGD1500 for a YSL Small Muse in buffalo leather to almost SGD20,000 for a YSL Large Muse in exotic crocodile.
