Not to be confused with the Betty Chain Shoulder Bag that was released during Hedi Slimane’s tenure with the label but has since been discontinued, this new bag is known as the Betty Pouch Bag. More a saddle messenger rather than a pouch per se, on first look the 100% calfskin leather exterior is smooth and luxurious, exuding an air of Parisian elegance. Aside from that, the bag’s other most definitive feature has got to be its engraved clasp that’s also magnetised for easy access. Lined with suede, it comes in two colours at the moment, Black and Dark Moka.
Measuring 22.5 cm by 19 cm, it is a great size as an across-the-body bag, or slung casually over the shoulder. Roomy with two additional inner flaps (one in front and another slit pocket at the back), organisation is also a breeze with this chic number.
Slated for a release sometime in August, the Betty Pouch Bag (SGD2900) is currently up for pre-order online via Saint Laurent. Alternatively, head to your nearest Saint Laurent boutique and see if you can get first dibs on this.
