Celebrities all over the world have warmly embraced it, but frankly, I’m not 100% sure. What I am talking about? The newly released YSL Roady of course, a single handle shoulder bag that’s soft, slouchy and unstructured.
On one hand, it’s simple and understated, ensuring that it will be a bestseller. On the other hand, it’s much too simple and unadulterated for my taste, not what I’ll usually expect from YSL. I’m much more used to the detailed crafted beauty of say, the Muse, the Muse Two, the Downtown and so on.
Still, don’t let that stop you; it’s still relevant enough to be a good wardrobe staple. Available in a plethora of colours and finishes, there is definitely something for everyone. And if selling loads of these ensures YSL’s survival and allows Stefano Pilati to continue with his other creations of whimsical beauty then yes; I’ll give it my blessing.
And I don’t know if this is 100% true, but a reader tipped me off that all cosmetics and skin care from YSL will be pulled from Singapore’s retail shelves this month, with only fragrances left. Hmm…
