Saint Laurent Small Heart Chain Bag

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: SAINT LAURENT

Due in Singapore anytime soon are these, the new F/W16 Small Heart Chain Bagslings from Saint Laurent. Very retro, very Studio 54, very 90s, which brings me to my next point. If you think about it, heart-shaped bags have been around every decade, they never seem to go out of style, and no matter what year it reappears in, women will find them hard to resist since who doesn’t love love anyway, right?

But back to the bags at hand. Definitely giving off a Studio 54 vibe more than anything else, there’s something about the oversized YSL logo, that slinky gold chain and even that quilted matelassé leather that just screams the sexy 70s. Measuring 16 cm across (and top to bottom) at its widest points, the 100% calfskin leather slings come lined with suede.

And with a drop of almost 60 cm, you can easily put on some high heels, slap on some red lippy and sling this baby across the body for the crazy night out on the town. No word yet on its retail price in SGD, but you can always check with our local Saint Laurent boutiques located at ION Orchard and Marina Bay Sands.

Saint Laurent Monogram Saint Laurent Sunset

Categories:Louis Vuitton


It’s funny how every time I start on a new Saint Laurent post, I feel the need to explain the fact that Hedi Slimane’s out and Anthony Vaccarello’s in, as if in denial, but it’s a fact that can’t and won’t change. Maybe I’m just sentimental, but fashion has proven that it waits for no one and more than ever, it’s just become a game of constant musical chairs. So while we all wait and see what Vaccarello comes out with, life does indeed go on, and we’ll still go about our ways and of course, buying new bags.

Bags like the new Monogram Saint Laurent Sunset, which I’m presuming was conceived during Hedi’s reign at the French luxury house.

Measuring 22 cm by 16 cm for the one in the Medium, it’s pretty much a case of what-you-see-is what-you-get, a simple-enough, straightforward leather shoulder bag that comes with its own metal sling that allows you to wear it two ways, long as a crossbody piece, or short as a shoulder sling. Featuring a front pocket attached to the main compartment that can be ‘covered’ with the front flap with its magnetic snap button, it’s currently available in stores locally and is priced at SGD3010.

Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour Replica: Most Common Flaws You Should Avoid

Categories:Other Brands

Even though this guide is meant to help those who are trying to find the best Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour replica, you can also use it to authenticate a Sac De Jour you’re having doubts about.

Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour Replica Common Flaws

First of all, a good Saint Laurent Sac du Jour replica should be made of high-quality leather. The real Sac de Jour is made of beautiful rich leather and so should be a premium replica. It’s difficult to tell if the bag is made of real leather when you’re shopping online because you can’t actually smell it or feel it but you can tell if the material looks too matte and bland. Just like you would expect from a high-quality designer bag, the interior is just as luxurious as the exterior. The interior of the Sac de Jour is lined in ultrasuede while the inside pockets are lined with a faille material that prevents the bag from looking bulky. You should also keep in mind that the Sac de Jour is a structured tote, so you should not buy a replica that looks slouchy. Needless to say that a cheap Sac du Jour replica will not follow these rules.

A good Saint Laurent Sac du Jour replica should also have impeccable stitching all across the bag. If the bag has loose threads all over, then it means it’s a low quality replica.

Based on the Yves Saint Laurent replica reviews I’ve received so far, I can tell you for sure that the weakest point and most common flaw of the Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour replica bags is the logo stamp. The stamp (both inside and out) should be crisp, clear and consistent and it should match the color of the hardware. You will notice that many of the fake Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bags you’ll find online (especially the cheaper ones) have smudges around the stamp or that the logo is not aligned. I know that I’ve said before that the “T” should touch the “N” in front of it both for the “Saint” and for “Laurent” but this is not enough anymore. Because I’ve seen some fake YSL bag logos that followed this rule were still really bad:

Remember this YSL Sac de Jour Nano review? That bag was a huge hit back then and everyone wanted a Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour replica in that beautiful pink color. But the biggest problem that Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour replica had was not that the color wasn’t exactly like the real one but the fact that both the inside and the exterior stamp were really bad. But don’t worry, you will be able to find Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour replica bags with amazing stamps! And you can find some good examples right here, on the blog.

Still, you need to take into account that a good replica Sac De Jour is usually quite expensive, one in the 300 USD range being the most affordable. But the prices can go up to $500 for a Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour replica in Medium size. It’s not that you can’t find a Sac de Jour replica cheaper than this. But just don’t expect it to be made of real leather.

Now let’s see what the other replica handbags reviews on the blog have taught us about Saint Laurent Sac de Jour bags:

Shoulder strap flaws:

“My biggest issue would be the shoulder strap which is not like the original. It is cut off and sewed close whereas the original one is enclosed all the way between 2 pieces of leather. I have circled it in red”

When the end of the strap looks glued rather than stitched.

The hardware:

Make sure it’s not too gold or too shiny because that’s when it looks cheap.

Hardware pieces that need to be engraved: the two middle compartment zipper pulls should be made of metal and marked with “Saint Laurent” on one side, while the interior pocket zipper pull should be made of leather. The lock and keys should also be engraved but sometimes they are very poorly engraved and that makes them useless:

Don’t be surprised to see that some Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour replica bags come with a serial number tag too. The tag is sometimes misplaced on a fake YSL bag but I do not consider this to be a major flaw because it’s not visible. But in case you need this information to learn how to spot a fake Sac de Jour, then you should know that the serial number is embossed on a leather patch you should find inside the interior pocket.

The leather tag hanging in the front should be embossed with the words “Saint Laurent Paris” but I’ve noticed that this stamp is crooked on many fake YSL Sac de Jour bags. If that’s the case with your bag too, maybe you should consider wearing it without this tag.

A beautiful mini satchel bag in black suede, it is the perfect go-to bag whenever you hang out with your girlfriends over a cup of coffee or tea on a Friday afternoon.

Saint Laurent Classic Sac De Jour

Categories:Other Brands

saint_laurent_classic-sac-de-jour2Before I start on the post proper, let’s address the elephant in the room since I’m pretty sure most of you will come to an instant conclusion even if you’ve read the post. And I’ve figured if Saint Laurent has no qualms pushing this particular design out, they won’t have an issue with people talking about it either.

At first glance it does look like the Birkin, and even after looking at it for a good 1968 seconds, it still looks like a Birkin. The shape’s pretty similar, as are the handles and even the tabbed gusset details (one on each side of the handle) won’t look out of place on the aforementioned bag, but that’s just about it.

Which means it’s time to wax lyrical about why I’m loving the Saint Laurent Classic Sac De Jour so much.

For starters, you can’t not love its pared-down simplicity and it’s probably safe to say that Hedi Slimane referenced JPG’s Shadow Birkin, which has also got to be one of my favourite variants of all time.

And then there are the thoughtful touches, from the brass feet to a zip that goes across the top of the bag that’s definitely useful. Polished calfskin on the outside and lined with suede, the made-in-Italy piece has compartments galore on the inside, good for all manner of personals.

saint_laurent_classic-sac-de-jour1Available in 2 sizes (or that’s what I’ve gathered so far), the one that measures almost 40 cm across retails for USD3950 (or HKD25,550) and will come in at least 4 hues: Beige, Purple, Red and of course, Black. Due to be released in the coming months, I’ll counting the days till I finally get to road test one in person.

Saint Laurent Mens Sac De Jour

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: SAINT LAURENT

I’ll be honest, I’m not even 100% sure if there was ever a Sac De Jour made for men before this, because I kept hearing different stories over the years. Yes there was, but it was actually the largest one they had for women, yes they did, no they didn’t, yes they did but it was eventually discontinued.

Not that it matters anymore really, especially with this post. Why? Because I can officially confirm the existence of a Sac De Jour made specially for the guys, and yes, it’s even larger than the largest one they have for the women. Measuring 40 cm across by 31 cm in height, there are also some other nuanced differences. Instead of a shoulder sling, the mens version comes with an appropriately thick strap. There’s also a removable zip pouch in the middle that can be taken out and used separately. Even the hardware is more butch, all in matte black (yes, even the lock), instead of the gold or silver-tone ones you usually see on the woman’s versions.

Yes, boys, it’s time to rejoice, you finally have a Sac De Jour to call your own this F/W16 season, sized so right you can give back the large one you’ve been borrowing from your mother. Priced at SGD5470, you’ll find at least 2 variants in stores now, the first in croc-embossed calfskin (100% leather, of course) and another in just regular calfskin that’s all black like the S0 Black, if you know what I mean.

And if you look close enough at the ‘So Black’ version, you’ll also notice that it doesn’t come with the hot-stamping of the logo either. Pretty cool, if you ask me.
