There is something so beautiful about many YSL handbags. I do not love them all, but I do love most. The designs are typically very elegant, clean, and wearable. YSL has been using a process of crocodile-embossing their suede, which leaves us with such a stunning effect. There are a few design houses that currently soften their crocodile skins until it does feel like suede (Bottega Veneta does this beautifully), but it is very expensive. Croc-embossed suede looks much more real than croc-embossed leather and I happen to like it much more. The Yves Saint Laurent Capri Flap Hobo implements this croc-suede in a chic shape that is a perfect everyday bag. I have been very drawn to flap bags lately, they allude this feeling of casual style but can still look incredibly stunning and pull an outfit together beautifully. This YSL bag has a golden chain toggle closure with a wooden ornament. On the inside there is a clever center zip that divides the bag in two along with a zip and cell phone pocket. Dimensions are 17″W X 14″H X 6″D. Big question now is which color is better, almond or sky antracite. Both are great, both will last season to season. Buy through Saks for $1595.
