‘Fashion comes and goes, but style is eternal’ – Yves Saint Laurent
Yves Saint Laurent is a brand that I’ve liked for so many years now! I love what the brand stands for and the founders of the fashion house, Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé are super fascinating. I’ve read many books about the fashion house and its founders and once you’ve done this, you are intrigued, believe me! Hedi Slimane, the previous creative director, is just as fascinating but unfortunately, he left YSL in 2016. The clothing of course is stunning, but the bags especially are amazing! Saint Laurent bags to me, are all about being modern and chic at the same time. There are many gorgeous items designed by YSL but one of my all-time favorites definitely is the Sunset bag!
The Sunset bag can be worn with a casual outfit but you can easily wear it with a fancy outfit as well. This bag is extremely sophisticated and simple. The only details are the interlocking YSL initials on the flap of the bag and a key ring with Saint Laurent on it. I normally prefer golden details but for this bag, I like the silver details better. This came as quite a surprise to me, but the silver combined with the black leather and the shape of this beauty, is just breathtaking! The leather shoulder strap gives this bag the finishing touch. The chain gives this bag a somewhat rough appearance which goes so well with it! I simply cannot get enough of this bag.
The size of this bag is perfect. It is small enough to wear as a crossbody, but it is certainly big enough to wear as an everyday bag. You can easily put all your essentials in it! The inside of the bag features suede lining, which gives an extra luxurious feel to the bag. The design has a gusseted slot pocket next to the interior slot pocket. There is another slot pocket on the bag as well, so there truly is lots of space!
The Sunset bag furthermore is a perfect example of a bag that can be worn with any outfit. Do you want to combine this beauty with jeans and a lovely sweater? This bag will elevate your outfit to the next level! Is your style more sophisticated and do you often wear a skirt with a blouse? This bag will match perfectly with the rest of the outfit. As Yves Saint Laurent once said: ‘Fashion comes and goes, but style is eternal’. This is what I love about this bag… There are so many ways you can style this gorgeous bag. There truly are endless options!
The Saint Laurent Sunset bag is styled with a beautiful Self-Portrait dress and Saint Laurent heels to perfectly match the aesthetics of YSL. What do you think of this outfit?
