Saint Laurent Holiday Capsule Collection

End-of-year festivities usually means party season.  Saint Laurent certainly had this in mind when they came up with the Christmas Capsule Collection featuring their signature Kate bags, particularly the Chain Wallet, and Small Chain Bag, as well as the Tuxedo Box minaudière.

Animal print is super on trend right now, and part of this Capsule comes in leopard printed velvet, and no surprises here, because leopard is no stranger to the Maison, especially that if the old YSL before Hedi Slimane came along and shook things up back then. And then we have the dressier bags, with gold, and lots of it.


Saint Laurent Christmas Capsule CollectionAll dressed up in diagonal gold chains that form a diagonal striped motif of different textures, with the Kate embellished with gold chain tassels on each side, they’re perfect for gala dinners and red carpet worthy soirees. Shiny, shiny, shiny, is all I can think of when I see these bags. Personally, I find them a little too attention-seeking and OTT.  Crazy Rich Asians-worthy that’s for sure. I can so imagine these on Araminta!

Saint Laurent Christmas Capsule

Classy are what I call these black suede bags – the Kate Chain Wallet, Small Kate Chain Bag, and Tuxedo Box – two out of three of which, come with a snake chain strap. Though I’m not usually a fan of snake chain straps because hair tends to get caught in them, I love the almost pinstripe-esque motif created by vertical gold chains. Black and gold is always a foolproof combo.

Saint Laurent Sulpice Medium Suede Gold Studs


My favourite, however, is this Sulpice Medium in black suede with gold studs because it’s the perfect day to night bag. Though a little on the larger side, you can either pile on the edge with a motorcycle jacket, dress up a casual look with a plain white tee jeans, or wear it with shorts or a denim skirt for that SoCal vibe. And the fact that there are studs all over this bag, need I say more? Obsessed.
