YSL Tribute Flat Tote

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. The way this bag is finished is quite intriguing, as the patent leather is styled with a fresh finished of crackled gold. The gold is not super blingy, more of a subdued brushed gold. The doubles shoulder straps have an 8″ drop. This bag is just as flat as they say it is, with merely 1″D, but somehow I still love it. It is a fresh look, a clean look, and a highly sought after bag. The inside does have a zip pocket along with silk satin lining. Overall dimensions are 16½”W X 17¾”H X 1″D. Pre-order through Saks for $1295.

    I don’t LOVE this, but I definitely like it enough to desire it. It sort of looks like a piece of flat bed rock chipped out of a quarry to me, which is quirky enough to enjoy. :) I like the shape. I would love to feel this in person.

    I don’t usually like gold handbags but this one is very nice.

    I agree with pjh, this purse is definitely interesting looking and I applaud YSL for their creativity! This purse is unique enough to justify it’s hefty price tag. I can’t say I love it, but I could see it growing on me.

    Not too bad, it’s different, which is excellent in my eyes, but I can’t say I love it. I love the color and the cracked design, it’s pretty. I agree with pjh, I would love to see how this feels.

    Like the shape but would not buy it. Looks like a modern sculpture in brass but not really my personality. I get to keep my money anther day! Yaaayyyy!!!

    I like the shape but I think the color makes this YSL tote look too vintage. I have seen it in black patent and that looks much better.
