Saint Laurent Classic Medium Collège Monogram Bag

2016-6-13 fashion Other Brands

Consider this Saint Laurent’s new-age take on the classic cartable, which is basically a satchel-style bag with a top handle, which is this day and age what we call a briefcase? Ok, before this quick exercise into the history of bags gets too confusing, let’s just focus on the Classic Medium Collège Monogram Bag at hand.
Available in two distinct sizes, the bags comes sized in either 24 cm by 17 cm (Medium, shown above) or 32 cm by 2o cm (Large), the former a good size as a daily-use handbag, the latter an office workhorse to pack more work essentials in. With its softer, slouchier sheepskin leather exterior and those raised ridged lines, the icing on the cake is perhaps the French luxury house’s signature YSL monogram logo, in brushed gunmetal that’s not only very subtle but less prone to knicks and scratches as well.
Platine, which is French for platinum, is also one of the key themes as far as Saint Laurent’s Holiday 2015 offerings are concerned, a welcome change from all those garish yellow golds and reds we can only take so much of on any given day, Christmas or not.
 you can check it out via Saint Laurent’s boutiques at ION Orchard (have you seen the glorious new mirrored and marbled shrine of a store that recently opened?) and of course, Marina Bay Sands.
Featuring a palette of hues from silvery silvers to the palest of champagne golds, there are at least 4 different bags you can choose from to make this X’mas even more festive. First up (or top down, that is), the Classic Small Monogram Satchel in grained metallic leather that measures a wee 17 cm across. Featuring a suede interior, this SGD2550 sling is also as compact as it gets, the one you wear across the body and party the night away.

Next up, the slightly larger (19 cm across to be exact) Classic Saint Laurent Front Flap Wallet (SGD1590) that features the house signature matelassé stitching on the exterior. Featuring card slots and pockets for both bills and receipts, it’s also one bag where you can actually remove the chain, turning it into a clutch for double-duty

Another sling you could consider is the Classic Baby Monogram Saint Laurent Chain Bag, which also comes with a front flap. But unlike the previous one which has built-in wallet capabilities, this SGD2490 darling just features a grosgrain interior. Last but by no means least, the Classic Monogram Saint Laurent Clutch that measures almost 27 cm across. Priced at SGD1950, it’s finished with a pale gold YSL interlocking logo; it’s really a case of same but different as far as these 4 is concerned.
How do you decide then? Head down to any Saint Laurent boutique in Singapore (there’s one at Marina Bay Sands and another at ION Orchard) and try them on, of course.
