Yves Saint Laurent is loving the chain under leather look for this season. First we saw all the celebs crushing on the YSL Roady. The Roady of choice for many of the celebs and customers alike is the black leather with metal chain insert. And that version of the YSL Roady has a very familiar feel to this YSL bag.

The Yves Saint Laurent Nappa Leather Clutch mixes chunky chain metal hardware with sleek gray leather. There is an optional shoulder strap which is always a nice touch. To go hand held or shoulder strap is the question? Sometimes I like to use the optional shoulder strap as a wristlet handle. I know, so bold and daring. Back to this YSL bag.

Yves Saint Laurent Nappa Leather Clutch

This is Yves Saint Laurent afterall, so we can be assured that the Nappa leather, chain detailing, and chocolate suede lining are all completely divine. I am sitting on a fence about my overall feeling on this clutch. If someone gave it to me I would take it in a heart beat, but I am not feeling a deep yearning for this clutch either. Don’t get me wrong, it is a great classic, but would I buy it? Long answer short is no. This clutch simply does not have the wow factor which is entirely surprising as the simply Roady hobo did it for me but this simple clutch counterpart does not. Buy through Net A Porter for $1,495.

    This is a really great, classic bag! I love how the chains give it a bit of edge, but it’s still subtle. Way too expensive for me unfortunately :(

  • Maggie

    Nice Nice Nice.
    Love it very much.
    I find this Yves Saint Laurent Calypso Dark Taupe Leather Bag
    .. It is really expensive, but so nice.

  • Terri

    Not so much! It has a homemade feel. Something you might do with a fabric crafts purse.

  • The Girl in Grey

    Now this is a handbag. Beautifully made, a classic with an edge, all the little details you can only notice after you study it. It’s perfection, and thank you for posting it.

    Its lovely but nit worth the price

  • otter

    Very nice, but too pricey for a smallish clutch. Pass.

    In general, YSL is my brand. However, I don´t like this bag at all. I´m sorry to admit it, but I´ll pass.

  • Ruslana

    I love YSL, he knows that luxury doesn’t mean overdone and flashy ,
    it mean classy wearable and unique.
