As a brand, French heritage label Saint Laurent has long been known for its strong, feminine styles that ooze both sex appeal and glamour. The brand’s RTW, shoes and bags have mesmerized fashion lovers with its iconic silhouettes, offering chic pieces that carry you from season to season. Since Anthony Vaccarello joined the brand, the designer has honed in on his own aesthetic, slowly fusing his personal direction with that of his predecessor.
When it comes to bags, it’s taken a few years for Vacarello to find his groove, but the last few seasons we’ve seen some new additions that are interesting and sleek, sitting well alongside the brand’s logo-heavy assortment. Popular styles like the Loulou and Kate remain an integral part of the brand’s lineup, but it has been exciting to see the brand move in another direction. Interesting new styles like the Le 5 A 7, and The Le Maillon have caught our eye, and now we’re taking a look at the latest from Saint Laurent, the Sac Cœur Bag.
Simple, yet sleek with an equestrian feel and a vintage vibe, this bag isn’t exactly the archival revival we’ve been waiting for, but it is clearly inspired by YSL bags from the 80s and 90s.
Featuring a canvas body with a soft, calf-leather trim, the bag’s patched YSL emblem is a true ode to the House’s past. The Sac Cœur has a top zip and an adjustable shoulder strap, so that the bag can also be worn crossbody. The thin, rounded leather strap is another nod to vintage leather bags of the past. A classic, easy style that is hard not to love, it is a keeper in my book.
