Yves Saint Laurent Large Soft Top Handle Shopper

I most recently have fallen in love with a specific YSL bag. Remember when I covered the YSL Volcano Tote? I ended up seeing it in Saks last week in pewter and I fell in love again. PEWTER! You know, that beautiful shimmery gray color that I obsess over. In fact, pewter is one of our colors for our wedding (though finding pewter bridesmaid dresses has proven to be much more difficult than anticipated). So now I have this huge crush on YSL and continue to seek out their bags. Simplicity is what reigns me in.

If the shimmery colors of the Volcano tote did not do it for you and you also wanted a larger bag, the Yves Saint Laurent Large Soft Top Handle Shopper may be just what you are looking for. There are a few reasons why I love this bag. First of all, the shopper shape is large but not gargantuan. The other perk about the shape is that it should fit nicely under your arm without the sides being too large and protruding in front or behind you. The body is stitched with a signature “Y” on the soft leather. There are double top handles and a double shoulder strap. Measurements are 16″W X 14″H X 7½”D. Fill your YSL obsession at Saks for $1,995.

  • juju

    I’m not totally in love with the shape either. And I don’t like the long strap AND short handles. Just pick one.

    I’m considering it; not for purchasing or anything, just for evaluation purposes. I like the ‘Y’ stitching that gives a somewhat subtle shout-out to YSL. But, the practical side of me keeps asking….”Does it open up any larger than that little bit at the top?” I mean I could lose lots of stuff in a knapsack that would open up flat. With that shape, I could send my keys through a black hole in space and have about the same odds of finding them again. Aesthetically, it’s quite cool, but I’m not convinced that I could live with it.
