Aesthetically-speaking, it’s not hideous or horrid in any way, but with few mutters online as far as the new Saint Laurent bags are concerned, one could attribute it to the covert, low-key manner the Slimane-helmed French house is handling it.
But enough about the politics of fashion and on to the new season Saint Laurent Clous Medium Betty, which, as I just mentioned earlier, isn’t hideous, or horrid. What it is, however, is a structured calfskin leather bag that features the original Riva Gauche detailing in the form of folded corners, and in this case, adorned with brass clous studs. Sporting a front flap that closes via the help of magnets, it also comes with a slinky rolled gold-tone hardware chain that be extended slightly in case you wanted to wear it across the body.
Available in two sizes, the one in medium measures 11 cm across by 7 cm and is priced at GBP1250. If, however, you’re more a black-on-silver kind of girl, Net-A-Porter has another variation in black calf that’s lined in suede and sans studs that also retails for GBP1250.
