Stylish and Functional: The Saint Laurent Loulou

The Saint Laurent Loulou deserves a spot in your closet

Do you own a bag that works for your life in every way? For me, it’s my Saint Laurent Loulou. I picked up my Loulou last summer and found it a fast favorite in my collection. I’ve loved the Loulou since it was released in 2017, and if you’re an avid PurseBlog reader, you have seen this bag covered quite a bit. An instant favorite among many handbag lovers, the Loulou is a recognizable and beautiful bag.

Dimensions and What Fits

The Loulou comes in four sizes: toy (7.8 X 5.5 X 2.9 inches), small (9.8 X 6.6 X 3.5 inches), medium (12.5 X 8.6 X 4.7 inches), and large (14.9 X 10.6 X 5.5 inches). Although I am a self-proclaimed large handbag lover, I opted for the small version of the Loulou. I call the bag my Mary Poppins bag because it honestly holds so much more than it looks like it ever could. I can carry my kindle, wallet, sunglasses, perfume, make-up, iPhone, keys, and more comfortably in my Loulou.

Construcion and Materials

The Loulou has a magnetic snap closure, so it feels secure and easy to get in and out of. My Saint Laurent Envelope bag has a back pocket that the Loulou lacks, so I do wish it had a back pocket, but the interior does have a zip pocket inside. The Loulou also has a chain strap that can be worn doubled up or singularly, which I love. I tend to carry mine doubled up, but I love that I can wear it long when I want to. The toy version of the Loulou doesn’t have this capability and can only be worn longways, so keep that in mind if you are thinking of adding a Loulou to your collection! In addition to the traditional quilted leather Loulou, Saint Laurent also offers a “puffer” version of this bag, which I find to be so fun and playful.

My Loulou is white calfskin with silver hardware, and I personally love this color combo. I do not wear much denim, so I don’t need to worry about denim transfer, but I have been incredibly impressed with the wear and tear this bag can take. I have been wearing it nonstop, and it looks as new as it did the day I bought it. Because this bag can take a beating and is so functional in every way for me and my lifestyle, I really want to add another to my collection. I love my Loulou so much that I haven’t purchased a new bag since I got it…but it may be time! I’m thinking of getting a gem-toned, medium-sized Loulou for my next purchase.

    I love my LouLou. It’s such a versatile bag. Looks great with casual outfits or with more tailored clothes.

    I really like the LouLou bag. It’s always on my wishlist. For some reason, I always end up getting something else. I also can’t decide if I want the small or the medium.

      I have the medium but I wish I had gotten the small – my only regret. The bag has a lot of depth so the small has the capacity of a typically medium bag. Also, the small size works better for evening.

    One of the worst “designer” bags of the past decade. A perfect companion to Ugg-wearing, pumpkin-spice-latte-drinking, and sex-and-the-city-adoring gals.

      I don’t like it either. I find it boring, old lady-ish, hideous logo. Hard pass for me.

        I’m not a fan due to market saturation & the big logo.

      It’s a starter bag in the luxury community, definitely more saturation than a lot of bags.

    Love my medium size. It holds all my essentials and they fit inside snuggly without moving all around . I have it in the sand/beige with gold hardware. Looks even better the more I use it as my daily bag.
