Fashion is like any other form of creative expression: an opportunity to be publicly clever or publicly inane, depending on your natural predilection. Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane generally chooses the latter, even if he makes some damn fine Chelsea boots, and he’s at it again with the Saint Laurent Metallic Gun Clutch.
Saint Laurent Handbags and Purses
She’s already been photographed carrying (“carrying”) Chanel in CR Fashion Book, and with parents like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, it was clearly only a matter of time until little North West started carrying bags of her own, even if she still lacks the manual dexterity necessary to actually grasp them in her adorably chubby little toddler hands.
There was a lot of debate when I named the Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour as the bag of the week back in March.
Here’s a blue-haired Nicole Richie, making the press rounds in NYC for her new reality show Candidly Nicole. (Yes, Nicole Richie is returning to reality television, for reasons I don’t completely understand.) She’s carrying the largest size of the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote, which is definitely its most Birkin-esque variation.
Here’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, arriving at LAX looking as supermodel-perfect as she always does. Like most gorgeous celebs, Rosie spends an absurd amount of time navigating her way through throngs of paps and autograph-seekers in airports all over the world. Her bag du jour is in fact, a dark green Saint Laurent Sac du Jour.
Here’s the endlessly chic Rosie Huntington-Whiteley arriving at LAX, carrying a black Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote. In case you’ve forgotten, Rosie is a model and an actress, but everyone here probably just recognizes her from appearing in pics just like these and dressing impeccably, all of the time.
Here’s Reese Witherspoon, looking particularly Reese Witherspoon-esque while shopping on Montana Boulevard in LA. She’s carrying a petite, black Saint Laurent Micro Sac de Jour Bag, and those gorgeous fuchsia suede sandals aren’t bad either. (If you know who made them, let us know in the comments.) You can find Reese’s bag at Nordstrom for the not-so-petite price of $1,995.
Late last week, word broken that more than $100,000 worth of clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories had been swiped from Saint Laurent’s Chicago boutique in a brazen smash-and-grab robbery in the middle of the night, and now we’ve received an interesting note from a tipster: a Saint Laurent Crocodile Sac de Jour Bag, priced at over $29,000, was among the loot missing from the store when the cops arrived.
