If you’ve seen Saint Laurent’s Summer 2023 campaign, chances are you would have spotted the oversized Jamie 4.3. Yes, the cool and chic capacious bag that features the iconic Carré Rive Gauche quilted topstitching, as well as Le Maillon chain rings and signature YSL monogram.
And if you’re into the smaller-is-better approach, then you’ll be glad to know that it comes in two sizes. Today is all about the small size in soft nappa leather. Measuring 25 cm by 16 cm, there’s just one colour in black lambskin for now. It comes with bronze-tone hardware for a look that’s as classic as it gets.
You can expect to get lots of wear out of this light and compact style. With a 7-cm deep interior with zip and flat pockets, it easily fits the phone-SLG-keys trifecta and more. While flap bags typically come with a snap closure, the Jamie 4.3 also features a self-tie closure within for an extra bit of security.
And because versatility is key, its Le Maillon chain, complete with pronounced links, works as a sliding strap. It extends from 29 cm to 53 cm for bespoke carrying options, allowing you to easily transform it from a shoulder bag to crossbody option.
The Jamie 4.3 in small currently retails at SGD4300. Visit Saint Laurent’s boutiques at ION Orchard and Marina Bay Sands, or head online to its e-store for more information.
