There’s perhaps no more controversial brand in fashion right now than Saint Laurent. Since Hedi Slimane took the reigns three seasons ago, the company’s look has gone from conservatively luxurious to all-out rock-n-roll excess, with plenty of detractors and proponents alike. Although I like Saint Laurent shoes, the company’s bags have always felt a little bit off to me, even on their best days, but I can finally say that I’ve found one I love without reservation: this black-on-black version of the Saint Laurent Betty Bag.

The Betty, along with the Classic Duffel, have always been my favorites among Saint Laurent’s accessories offerings, but I had yet to see a version of either that really tickled my fancy. I’m always a total sucker for black hardware, and the black-on-black look of this bag both fits my preferences and Saint Laurent’s luxe-punk aesthetic perfectly. Slimane is talented, despite being something of a personality, and this kind of bag is exactly the direction I had hoped he would go with the line. Here’s hoping that more like this is on its way. Buy for $2,100 via MATCHESFASHION.COM.
