Consider this a refresher post. For those of you who might have been slightly confused between Saint Laurent’s YSL Monogram and Toile Monogram collections, here’s help. Whereas Toile Monogram refers to anything that comes in repetitive YSL monogram print, YSL Monogram is any bag that comes adorned with the YSL logo, designed by artist Cassandre in 1961 on Monsieur Saint Laurent’s request.
And while the Toile Monogram collection is more straightforward in terms of styles available (it’s also permanent so pieces don’t really change much from season to season), the YSL Monogram is much larger, with bags and SLGs in almost every style from both permanent and seasonal collections that all come adorned with the YSL emblem.
So what style of bags can you expect from the YSL Monogram collection? Everything really, from quilted leather shoulder bags to top handle handbags. Then there are the hobos, the satchels and of course, the sexier sling bags that many have grown to love.
Because this post wouldn’t be quite complete without some examples of bags from the YSL Monogram collection, here are some current season beauties you could most definitely check out, from the one in embossed croc to tanned leather Université, with prices ranging from SGD2890 to SGD3230 for the lot shown above.
