Yesterday, Yves Saint Laurent relaunched YSL.com with a fresh assortment of iconic YSL products that are exclusive to their online store. Many of the products are never-before-seen in boutiques, but we have the inside scoop on some of the items hitting the site.
Yves Saint Laurent have perfected many techniques, one being embossed sueded crocodile fabrications. I have been a long time fan of this process, as YSL has found a way to make it look luxurious and authentic, without being forced.
Both the Large Muse Bag and Trib Too Pumps are adorned in croco embossed suede in a variety of colors. While we typically stick with the bags, these pumps stand out and deserve mention. They are sleek and sexy.
And of course we have the bag itself. The Muse is not only one of the most iconic bags from the fashion house, but has been a long time personal favorite bag. The shape is what lures me in, with its signature padlock and stitched Y design. In fact, if you examine many YSL bags you will see that via clever designing, the letter ‘Y’ is often integrated into their pieces. The Large Muse is available in grey and beige right now on YSL.com for $1,695.
If you have not felt Yves Saint Laurent’s embossed croco material, I am encouraging you to walk into a store and touch touch the bags. The Muses are only available online, fortunately YSL makes other bags out of this croc suede. It is lush, thick, and sturdy while remaining chic with added dimension.
Actually, I always look for this from YSL. I still am kicking myself at passing by a Muse Two that I was obsessing over a year ago. That is how much I love this skin.
And a closer look at the pumps. Shoe addicts are known to flock to buy YSL shoes in droves. They have amassed a large following, and it is easy to see why. The Trib Too Pumps are available in the higher pump and lower, also in grey, beige and natural. The low pump has a 3.5″ heel with a 1″ covered platform while the high pump has a 5″ heel with a 1.5″ covered platform. The both shoes are $850.
