Saint Laurent calls this the Sunset Bag, and since this is not exactly a new style, consider this post a refresher on the new colours that are now available in stores. Certainly deserving the attention, this standout piece has its chic eye-catching YSL hardware logo stamped up front to thank.
Available in 2 styles (one comes with a sliding chain that you can wear long or short, the other a leather strap), the bag can be worn 2 ways as well – over the shoulder or across the body. As for what’s beneath the flap, the bag comes gusseted with a front pocket and opens up to two roomy internal compartments that can fit just about all your everyday essentials.
For Fall 2017, new colours will include Dark Beige, Dark Red, even a Dark Green Croc Embossed variation that comes with a chain sling (all retail for SGD3390 each). The other 2 colours, Army Green and Dark Beige will come with a thicker leather strap such that it can be detached and be carried as a clutch as well. The leather strap option will retail for slightly lower at SGD3200, which is a pretty good deal since the bag can double up two ways.
Not all colours are in boutiques at the moment, but feel free to head on down to make enquiries or put yourself on the wait list. And while you are there, you should check out the Medium that measures 22 cm across by 16 cm. Which is quite the perfectly sized good-for-a-full-day satchel. Really.
