It’s a little bit retro, a little bit glamorous and a little bit bling, what with the iconic YSL logo in gold-tone hardware placed smack in the middle of the bag. And that pretty much sums up the Saint Laurent Classic Monogramme Envelope Clutch, one of the French house’s S/S14 offerings that’s due out in stores anytime soon. Those who remember Chanel’s leather bags from the 80s might find the stitched leather chevron detailing familiar, which incidentally Chanel also brought back recently with some of their F/W13 bags. But that’s another post for another day.
Priced at SGD2010 and measuring 24 cm across by 14 cm, it’s another addition to Saint Laurent’s family of clutches, including the Classic Y clutch that’s become a style essential. Made of 100% calfskin leather, the flap comes with its own magnetic closure as well as a patch pocket on the inside which is exactly where I’ll stash the credit cards for added security. Also comes in full black (with gold-tone hardware) for those who are afraid of scuffing the white bit on the one shown above.
It’s a little bit retro, a little bit glamorous and a little bit bling. And I like it.
Before I go, here’s something else that I’ve got my eye on, the Saint Laurent Monogramme Candy Bag that’s a tiny bundle of joy that will set you back by SGD1270. Expect more updates soon.
