When the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour first came out, Amanda shared that it wasn’t for her. I took a liking to it and my feelings toward the bag have only grown over time. Saint Laurent hit it big with this bag, and it’s proven to be accepted into the handbag world and given a permanent slot in the must-have bag category.
Valentine’s Day is just round the corner, and now’s the time most people are contemplating gifts for their partners (or themselves–you’ll find no judgment here, only encouragement).

This week, everyone from Jessica Alba to Catherine Zeta-Jones was snapped at the airport, and they were ALL carrying handbags valued in excess of $2K.

We’ve had Pre-Fall 2016 shows happening regularly for months, and then the men’s shows happened in London, Paris and Milan for a seemingly interminable amount of time, and then, last week, it was Paris Couture Week.
Satisfying a thriving interest in monogram products while courting higher-end consumers with more expensive and exclusive leather options is a difficult balancing act, and it’s not one that Louis Vuitton has always pulled off perfectly. The brand has made strides in its leather game under the creative direction of Nicolas Ghesquiere, though, and now that monograms feel trendy again, LV has debuted at least one bag that I’m betting will capitalize on the increased interest: the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack PM.
