Many handbags come and go without a clear reason why. And it hit us the hardest when it is a ‘classic’ handbag that everyone loves. Chanel discontinued the GST Bag, Prada Saffiano Lux Tote is nowhere to be seen today and Saint Laurent stopped the production of the Muse 2 Bag in 2013. But who is the Saint Laurent Downtown Bag? The replacement of the Muse?

The Saint Laurent Downtown Bag has been around for sometime, at least before 2007, which makes it 10+ years now. But throughout the years, this bag went through a lot of modification and the look has changed from urban chic to classic. The new design was renamed to Downtown Cabas Bag.

The Design

You can still see some similarities between the old Downtown Bag and the Downtown Cabas Bag. The most notable part is the side wings. But there are also a lot of new changes; the Downtown Cabas Bag literally looks timeless. It features the House’s most precious YSL logo on the front, a chic signature tag and a buckle closure.

The gusseted side panels, aka side wings, can be expanded or contracted to create more space in the interior. It also creates a different style and you might love it more when the wings are inside. But this bag does remind me of someone else whom I also dearly love? Oh wait! The Celine Trapeze Bag.

Unlike the old Downtown Bag, which is slouchier, the Downtown Cabas Bag holds much better shape. It’s made with durable and luxurious calfskin leather. It also comes with removable shoulder strap, so there are multiple ways of carrying.


The Interior

The side wings can be expanded to create more space. The inside is made with one large compartment and a slot pocket. This bag can be used as an everyday bag, because it can carry your daily essentials.

Fortunately, there is more than one size available for the Downtown Cabas Bag. Which one is your favorite?

Saint Laurent Bag

 How is this Classic Monogram Tassel Satchel from Saint Laurent actually a satchel, since it doesn’t even look like one. There are no buckles on the front, there’s no top handle, it’s not even that big to begin with, since a satchel is a style of bag that one carries to school with space enough for books and all manner of bric-a-brac.

Honestly, I don’t get either. I will, however, tell you what it actually is, a slinky sling bag with to-die-for detailing, from the French house’s interlocking YSL signature logo that ends in a tassel to the sling that’s long enough to wear the bag one of 3 ways, across the body, over the shoulder or have everything tucked in to use it as a clutch.

Available in embossed crocodile calfskin so it won’t cost you an arm and a leg, it comes in the most luscious of hues, from cool Fog (shown above) to sexy Black, both of which are retailing at Saint Laurent Singapore boutiques for apiece. Measuring some 24 cm by 15 cm with an interior patch pocket at the side, have a look here if you still aren’t quite convinced and tell me they aren’t stunning at all.

Besides crêpe blouses, mini dresses and tees, you’ll also find the lipstick print on a couple of bags and SLGs this season, and from what I can tell is already available at Saint Laurent ION Orchard, they include a sling bag, a clutch and a zip-around wallet that all also come emblazoned with house’s classic monogram, or the YSL logo.

From guns to skulls to stars, Saint Laurent has done almost every print imaginable under the sun since Hedi Slimane took over the French luxury house in 2012, with various prints appearing on everything from RTW to bags, SLGs and shoes. And with its F/W15 collection comes the Lipstick Leather collection for the ladies, an eye-catching print that’s not only fun but guaranteed to bring a smile to most anyone’s face.

Yves Saint Laurent is famous for designing and making tote bags. Let’s look at the past, some have gone all the way to the status of iconic – The Saint Laurent Chyc Tote, the Sac de Jour Tote, The Muse Bag and of course the newest Duffle Bags in different sizes.

And its not a coincidence that they keep producing gorgeous tote bags, they somehow know how to blend it with traditional elements. For example, the Saint Laurent Baby Monogram Cabas Tote Bag that we’ve featured this week, the big golden YSL signature on the front is simply to-die-for.

Saint Laurent Baby Classic Sac De Jour

Categories:Other Brands


How small is small when it comes to Saint Laurent’s Classic Sac De Jour? From the regular SDJ that’s good for work to the Nano that measures a wee 22 cm across (there are 4 sizes in all, by the way), the size I’m adoring the most that’s small but not too small (yes, there is such a thing when it comes to bags, no?) is the one that’s appropriately named Baby.

One up from the Nano and coming in at almost 26 cm across, the Baby Classic Sac De Jour is in my opinion the one you’ll have to get if you’re looking for a good city-sized bag, one that’s big enough for the day’s essentials, but not too big until it becomes a convenient dumping ground for things you don’t need in the first place, which I have witnessed for myself when I poked around in some women friends’ bags, from three mini umbrellas (really, who needs 3 umbrellas?) to 7 lip balms gathered at the bottom of the bag.

Wear it by the sling or just use it via its top handles, the Baby Classic SDJ is priced atSGD3190. Yes, I know, it’s not cheap right? Then again, what luxury bag is nowadays, so you might as well spend your hard-earned money on something you really love, yes?

It’s available in grained or smooth leather variations, although I’m always partial to anything grained since in my books it would mean it would hold up to accidental nicks and scratches better. However, that would be your choice at the end of the day, as would be the colour you pick, be it Lipstick Fuchsia, Royal Blue and Yellow.

Ooohh, what do we have here? A pair of red pumps…and the Saint Laurent Baby Tartan Bag! What a lovely combo we have here (definitely photogenic pieces, alright). Do you remember the bag, though? We’ve featured this piece before, so if you want to check the article for yourself, you can click on the link below.

READ: Saint Laurent Red Tartan Baby Punk Shoulder Bag

This pairing is definitely suggestive of a foolproof color scheme, because who said red-on-red ain’t possible? The vibrant shades of these pieces really do stand out and give any outfit a much-needed pop of color. We love how the bag takes it to the next level, and how its tartan print has made such a difference. Take some notes here – you can definitely pull-off daring colors and incorporate them with your favorite jeans and casual outfits. Going out in designer has never been this fun.

What do you think about this pieces? Are you considering this kind of look? Well, comment now and let us know your thoughts!

Saint Laurent Monogram Saint Germain Cabas

Categories:Other Brands

saint_laurent_monogram-saint-germain-cabasThe stylish bag all OLs (or office ladies) have been waiting for is finally here. From Saint Laurent’s F/W15 collection comes the Monogram Saint Germain Cabas, a workhorse of a tote that’s not only functional but big on good looks too. Measuring some 36 cm across by 24 cm in height (this is the size for the one in Medium), it’s everything you need in a work tote, from its rolled leather handles to an adjustable sling that allows you to carry it over the shoulder.

Coupled with the zip in the middle, pockets on the inside and an additional back pocket that’s good for paperwork, you’ll find it in either embossed croc or grained leather, both good (and hardy) for the rough and tumble. No word yet on the price, or if it will come in other colours besides the ones in Black for both embossed croc or grained leather variations, so expect an update soon.
