Saint Laurent shows no signs of stopping when it comes to perfecting its repertoire of bags with the YSL Cassandre logo. Today’s spotlight shines on the bulbous and brilliant June Box Bag. Its inner lining comes in a mix of suede and leather for an extra luxurious feel whenever you reach for its contents.
Apart from its unique saddle box-like shape, there are some interesting points to note about Saint Laurent’s June Box Bag. Firstly, the YSL Cassandre logo appears as the relatively new pivoting closure. This means that it doesn’t open via a magnetic or snap button mechanism. Instead, give the L a slight push downwards to release the flap with ease.
Secondly, the bag is fashioned with neither zip closures nor heavy hardware, making it a lightweight companion for the grab-and-go. Measuring 19 cm wide and 15 cm high, it works great for grocery runs or jaunts around town easily. After all, with a 6 cm depth, it is pretty roomy and offers ample space for all your daily needs.
Lastly, the June Box Bag not only has an adjustable leather sling for strapping crossbody for a hands-free look. You will also find that the straps attach to the sides, so no worries about removable clasps that may accidentally unfasten itself.
For now, you get the choice of crocodile-embossed leather or diamond-quilted lambskin (plus one for extra puffiness). Both come in Noir with bronze-tone metallic hardware. Priced at SGD3180 and SGD3280 respectively, which of the two versions of Saint Laurent’s June Box Bag has your heart?
