April 28, 2021 - Handbag Articles

Top 8 Saint Laurent Bags



Retail Price: $1,750

Take this crossbody bag to work or on an evening out! The sedateness of this most coveted of the top 8 Saint Laurent bags is now offset by a delicately jaunty tassel enlivening newer versions. The shiny interlocking YSL logo hardware, gleaming in gold on some models, graciously announces its origins. The Kate bag is available in both leather or suede.

  • Magnetic fastener
  • Interior pocket
  • Fully lined
  • Adjustable chain shoulder strap



Retail Price: $1,290

Luxury bag lovers are lucky that many years ago Louis Vuitton accepted a commission to design a bag that could carry 5 bottles of champagne! The resulting “bucket bag” —the Noe — turned out to be the forerunner of many a designer bucket bag, including the popular Teddy, which actually works both as a handbag or a backpack. Somewhat more casual than other Saint Laurent bags, the Teddy varies from sedate black to red-with-studded-gold bold, with the brand logo declared out front.

  • Antiqued hardware
  • Leather and chain-link shoulder strap
  • Drawstring closure
  • Interior zipper pouch


The Sac de Jour YSL Bag



Retail Price: $3,000

Not just the “bag of the day” as its name means, but truly a bag you can love every day, much like its inspiration, the legendary Birkin. The Sac De Jour debuted in 2013 and has become one of YSL’s most enduringly popular tote bags — maybe because just when you think it can’t hold anything else, its expandable sides offer even more storage.

The bag’s inner compartments — one in smaller sizes, two in larger models — help make order out of your totable chaos. A good choice for a versatile addition to your wardrobe — and a good investment piece, as well.

  • Available in 4 sizes
  • Top handle
  • Adjustable strap
  • 2 interior pockets
  • Zipper closure
  • Base feet

Famous fans: Kylie Jenner, Margo Robbie, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon



Retail Price: $1,090

That most utilitarian of bag types — a tote — meets Saint Laurent elegance and sophistication in this gently structured bag that comes in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials. The tote is appreciated for its longevity, a trait valued in other Saint Laurent signature handbags like the Sac De Jour, as well. Easily pluck your lipstick, breath mints, and other smaller daily necessities from the inside pocket.

  • Removable interior zipper pouch
  • Top handles
  • Detachable strap
  • Pull-through or snap closure

Famous fans: Miranda Kerr



Retail Price: $2,290

Posh but not pretentious, sedate and small even in larger sizes, perfect as an evening clutch; if there were a finishing school for handbags, the Sunset bag would be one of its top graduates. The gleaming chain strap sets off its structured body, particularly on models in red, royal blue, curry (orange), or dark green. With two interior compartments and the front pouch under the YSL logo flap, you won’t be endlessly rummaging for this or that. Classy, gracefully functional, and proof that good design comes in small purses.

  • Magnetic snap closure
  • Luggage tag
  • Leather and chain strap
  • Accordion sides


The Loulou YSL Bag



Retail Price: $2,050

The Y-quilted leather look renders this front flap bag so softly beautiful, it beckons you like a pillow. The versatile Loulou bag debuted in 2017 and can be worn as either a crossbody or shoulder bag. It was named in honor of Loulou de La Falaise, a gifted designer in her own right, and a muse of the fashion house’s founder.

  • Available in a variety of sizes and colors.
  • Adjustable leather-topped chain shoulder strap
  • Front snap closure
  • 4 interior pockets
  • Antiqued hardware



Retail Price: $2,590

If you’re not one to bag-brag, you’ll appreciate the understated Y-S-L logo that blends monochromatically into some versions of this roomy leather bag. The supple sides expand so that you can fit in more items than in a bag of comparable size. The pull-through chain-and-leather strap adjusts for carrying however you like at any moment. And how much more stylish can a bag get than bearing the name of a Manhattan neighborhood?

  • Chevron quilting
  • T-snap closure
  • Interior zipper pocket

Famous fan: Lauren Sanchez



Retail Price: $2,490

With more than one fashion reviewer giving nods to the bag’s “rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic,” as well as its functionality, the slouchy Niki gained icon status soon after its debut. Its crinkled leather gives it an appealing and comfortable vintage look, as if it’s already been your favorite bag for a while. Comes in three sizes; the large can accommodate a 12” laptop and more. And like the Nolita, it carries its logo unobtrusively; the “Y-S-L” blends in monochromatically with the rest of the purse.

  • Leather-topped chain-link shoulder strap
  • Antiqued silver-tone hardware
  • Flap with snap closure
  • 4 interior pockets

Famous fan: Rosie Huntington Whiteley
More Saint Laurent bag fans: Jessica Alba, Dakota Johnson, Cameron Diaz, Halle Berry, Kim Kardashian
