There’s nothing to dislike about the Yves Saint Laurent Printed Calf Hair Clutch and I won’t let you or anyone else tell me otherwise!

Leopard is a certified trend for the time being, and I tend to like grey leopard just as much as, if not more than, the traditional kind. Not only would actual leopards look really cool if they sported this color combination, but the mixed tones of grey and black tend to have a slightly harder edge than their tan counterparts. Lucky for me, then, that I got to fondle this clutch in person the same day that it showed up on Net-a-Porter.

Calf hair’s texture varies widely from brand to brand, and the type that Yves Saint Laurent uses is one of the softest that I’ve felt. The color variation is excellent, and for those among us who want to embrace the trend without committing to a larger bag or a brighter color scheme, this little clutch is perfect (not to mention much less expensive than the YSL Leopard Roady.) Buy through Net-a-Porter for $995.

    I’m usually not a fan of animal print, but in this color scheme it looks rather fabulous. I have a Mulberry putty smudged leopard bag from last winter in this palette – it really goes with everything I wear. YSL has been doing some great stuff lately, and this one is a sure hit for fall, albeit a bit expensive for a trendy piece.

    I would have to see it and feel it to know if I liked it. I don’t know about the black leather clasp and fastening…is it too big or too wide maybe ? Just something throws me about it.

    i love this clutch and i couldnt agree more with you about it being more chic and versatile than its tan leopard counterpart.the subdued colors make it more chic and seasonless.(ipad)

    The leopard print looks very poorly done, like the ugliest spots you could pick off a leopard. (ipad)
