I think we all know that Yves Saint Laurent is, uh, kind of freaking brilliant. He passed recently, but his eponymous label lives on in what seem to be very capable hands, if the Yves Saint Laurent Majorelle Medium Bag is any indication. The bag is a perfectly vintage shape – I picture elegant, monied women in the 1950s wearing this bag, along with a chic pair of gloves (why don’t we wear gloves anymore?

YSL bags are able to please my every want a need. Just when I needed a pick-me-up, a beautiful glimmer caught my eye in Saks. I was wandering the store aimlessly, looking for a white summery dress (I did this after Labor Day, GASP!). The dress hunt left me empty handed, but when I turned the corner I found the most stunning YSL handbag.
This past weekend the world was in shock at the loss of fashion guru and mastermind Yves Saint Laurent. His designs have impacted the fashion world as we know it today. So rather than mourn his death, let’s celebrate his life and what Yves Saint Lauent has brought us. I for one am a huge fan of YSL handbags.
My love of Yves Saint Laurent has only been growing recently. Their handbag collection was not known years ago for appealing to a younger twenty-something crowd, but lately, YSL handbags have been riding the wave. While the YSL Tribute Flat Tote is made to look ancient with the crackled gold finish, the finished product has an old world feel with a new world appeal.
There is something so beautiful about many YSL handbags. I do not love them all, but I do love most. The designs are typically very elegant, clean, and wearable. YSL has been using a process of crocodile-embossing their suede, which leaves us with such a stunning effect. There are a few design houses that currently soften their crocodile skins until it does feel like suede (Bottega Veneta does this beautifully), but it is very expensive.
The sophistication and elegance behind Yves Saint Laurent is evident in many of their bag designs. If you are looking for a safe yet stunning bag, YSL bags typically deliver just this. One of my recent favorites was the Yves Saint Laurent Uptown Bag, which sports clean lines and an impeccable simplified style. Now I have a crush on the Yves Saint Laurent Swing Bag which is also elegant but it is also a fun bag with the slight gold (they call it volcano) shimmer and rich silk trim.
Lindsay Lohan was seen doing what she is known for over the weekend, getting in and out of her car while the paparazzi snaps her picture. LiLo is back from her make-out sessions in Italy and has been laying low. Recently, Lindsay Lohan’s bag of choice has been the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag. And now she has opted for a smaller handbag, just to carry the essentials.
The allure of the Rive Gauche bag from YSL is the fact that it is quite understated and easy to wear everyday. While it is available in stunning ostrich, like the one Sienna Miller carried, it is also available in leather. There is a new rendition of the Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Tote made with crocodile-embossed patent leather.
Happy New Year everyone! We are finally back in the swing of things and excited to bring you the latest and greatest handbag news on the web. To start the year off right, we want to ask you what you think of this novelty clutch, is it fab or drab? YSL handbags made a hit last year with their Downtown Tote, which was spotted on the likes of Jessica Biel, Ashlee Simpson, and Salma Hayek.
