Anthony Vaccarello registered with Saint Laurent in 2016. Since then he has been producing bags that are well suited to the brand's customer base. His designs are rarely shocking or out of the ordinary, and some may say he plays it safe, but you know what the old saying goes: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". While critics argue that Saint Laurent's range is too heavy for the logo or that the designs are too similar, it is ultimately consumers who matter. His designs work in the fact that they sell, and newer designs like Loulou, Sunset, and Niki have returned season after season.
While Vaccarello did not quickly revise the brand's entire range, in recent seasons he has moved a bit away from designs that are a bit cleaner and more creative than in previous seasons. And in the age of padded, swollen, quilted flap pockets, it's nice to see a bag that is a little cleaner and more structured, and that's exactly what Vaccarello gave us with the new Saint Laurent book bag .
This slightly structured flap pocket has a striking YSL logo. However, if you prefer a logo that is a little less on the face, you can opt for a monochrome version. There is an adjustable leather and chain strap and inside there is a central compartment, which is accompanied by a front slit pocket. The bag is lined with suede and has a magnetic closure.
The book bag is an exclusive online article and is available in different variations, from leather and monochromatic suede to two-tone canvas / leather options. Only one size of the book bag is currently available, and all iterations are sold for $ 1,950 . The overall dimensions are 5.8 "L x 9.4" L x 3.1 "D.
