The Material Boy #62
YSL Large Calf Leather Tote Bag
Sometimes simplicity is beauty. Sometimes you just need a break from all the over embellished bag designs that bombard you whenever you step into any store. Sometimes what you really need is just a simple work bag that make you look smart and professional.
This is the bag that I would pick if I need a practical work bag that does not look too dull and yet elegant enough to impress in the office. Time and again, YSL has churned out many good bag designs for women and men that survived the fickle minded fashion industry and stay relevant for many seasons to come. The elegant and non-excessive design of this tote bag will ensure it inherit this attribute that as well.
Although I do not foresee this tote bag to reach cult status but it will be a great choice to compliment your Armani suit in the boardroom. Made from grained calf leather with a top zip opening. Features rolled leather handles embellished with matte brass hardware. An understated stylised 'Y' leather patchwork design on both sides and subtle branding on the front will ensure you do not become a living 'brand billboard'. The size is at a generous, 53cm wide, 45cm tall and a depth of 15cm.
