I’m often critical of Saint Laurent under Hedi Slimane, but the man does have an undeniable knack for certain things. To me, his collections often feel cobbled together of riffs on pieces other labels have found cool-girl success with, like Chelsea boots and leather jackets marked up until they feel rarified, but that approach does turn out a lot of pieces that are enviable on their own. This week, the piece that’s caught my eye is the embossed snake version of the Saint Laurent Monogramme Mini Shoulder Bag.


This bag shape has always been my favorite of Saint Laurent’s offerings; it feels like the little purse a very cool girl in the 80s would take to an after-hours club downtown, complete with the retro-iconic YSL logo. Katherine has one, and I’ve always been just a little bit jealous.

This version, though, is my favorite yet. Not only is the body of the bag snake-embossed, but when you look closely, the signature logo is made of a series of entwined metal serpents. The transformation goes just far enough; it’s clear what you’re looking at, but the logo stays intact. If this version ever shows up in black, I will die on the spot.

Spotlight: The Saint Laurent Monogramme East-West Tote

Categories:Other Brands


Saint Laurent doesn’t do the splashy bag launches and re-launches every season that some brands do. Hedi Slimane has built his company’s popularity on trying to make the best versions of the things every woman already wants in her closet, whether that’s the perfect little going-out bag or the perfect pair of Chelsea boots to wear six months out of the year. That means that seasonal variation isn’t as important as it is to a brand like Fendi, and under those circumstances, a new bag launch is always intriguing.

The Saint Laurent Monogramme East-West Tote is a Pre-Fall 2015 addition to the existing Monogramme line that’s just become available for pre-order, and it’s traditional and discreet enough to make a solid workday bag for anyone heading into the office on a daily basis. It features the most subtle logo of all the Monogramme bags so far (a small, golden “YSL” on the removable clochette), it has an optional shoulder straps and, at 14 inches wide, it fits right into the work-bag sweet spot for most women.

The Monogramme is a little more subtle than Saint Laurent’s other super-popular tote, theSac de Jour, and it lacks the super-distinctive gusset and squared handle attachments that have made that tote a signature. This bag feels a little more businesslike, at least in its current iterations. The Monogramme is available for pre-order now, but it likely won’t ship until September.

Do you like this design better than the Sac de Jour, or not as much?
