Consider this Saint Laurent’s new-age take on the classic cartable, which is basically a satchel-style bag with a top handle, which is this day and age what we call a briefcase? Ok, before this quick exercise into the history of bags gets too confusing, let’s just focus on the Classic Medium Collège Monogram Bag at hand.
Available in two distinct sizes, the bags comes sized in either 24 cm by 17 cm (Medium, shown above) or 32 cm by 2o cm (Large), the former a good size as a daily-use handbag, the latter an office workhorse to pack more work essentials in. With its softer, slouchier sheepskin leather exterior and those raised ridged lines, the icing on the cake is perhaps the French luxury house’s signature YSL monogram logo, in brushed gunmetal that’s not only very subtle but less prone to knicks and scratches as well.
Priced at SGD3390, you can check it out via Saint Laurent’s boutiques at ION Orchard (have you seen the glorious new mirrored and marbled shrine of a store that recently opened?) and of course, Marina Bay Sands.
