It started with a reader leaving a comment on the blog, regarding her Saint Laurent SA saying that the Arty Ring would be discontinued in the coming months. Distressed, I tweeted and 2 of you said you heard the same thing. An email to Saint Laurent’s regional office yielded no results, claiming no official announcement has yet been made.
The whole notion is confusing since the ring is easily one of Saint Laurent’s (or was it YSL’s) most beloved icons, and killing it would be akin to killing the goose that laid the golden egg, since most of you would have at least 1 or 6 already sitting on your dresser table with plans to buy even more.
Still, if it pays to err on the safe side, you should head over to Net-A-Porter right now and quickly pick up whatever’s left, in case they really do get, horror of horrors, discontinued.
