I love it when there’s enough in a bag’s name to pretty much describe what it is, and in the case of Saint Laurent’s Classic Toile Monogram East West Zipped Tote, it’s exactly as the name describes, no more, no less. Measuring some 62 cm end to end at its widest points, the mainly coated canvas bag is trimmed with leather, with a zip closure that runs across the top (and length) of the bag.
The perfect duffle (or a carry-on), the only thing the name doesn’t describe about this bag is the fact that you can also fold down both sides and button them in, allowing for a smaller (and a more rounded) silhouette. Priced at GBP1060 (I’ll update the post as soon as I get its price in SGD), this would be another ideal workhorse for those in the market for an all-weather weekender.

This just in. In Singapore, the *deep breath* Classic Toile Monogram East West Zipped Tote retails for SGD2480.
