Kevin Goes 'Downtown'!




I Took Mini Lin 'Downtown':-P

Yes, yesterday, I decided it was YSL time to shine this weekend. Hence, the YSL Downtown bag is going shopping with me. Hook on my Louis Vuitton Mini Lin Key And Change Holder and I am ready to go!...Perfect combination of colour and proportion for the bag and pouch. I also went to LV Hilton Hotel with the intention of buying the Pochette Milla PM or Mini Pochette Accessoires. However after trying it onto my downtown bag, I find the Pochette Milla too long a chain. The Mini Pochette Accessoires too 'aunty-looking' on my downtown. In the end, I decided...maybe the canvas monogram is just not my cup of tea. Perhaps I only like limited edition items. Especially after seeing all the exciting items on offer at Club 21 Mens. There is this Lanvin shoe that is getting me excited. And I tried on a Margiela bag which is interesting. Blackjack has got a Tsumori Chisato Bag that is also very beautiful. Yikes, so many temptations.

And I wore the recently acquired Zara nylon windbreaker I got on Monday (Tried it last Sunday to model my Treillis:-P), looks really nice. Love the plaid pattern. A good cheap buy!

(Today I am wearing Top Shop V-neck tee, Zara Plaid Nylon Windbreaker, D&G Skinny Jeans and 'Love' Bracelet', Vivienne Westwood 'Diamonté' Skull Necklace, Gucci G Horse Head Buckle Belt, He By Mango Sandals.)

sorry for being bias, but nothing can go wrong with a Yves Saint Laurent~ haha

Yes, I agree. Downtown is so chic anyways you carry it!:-P if they only make the handles slightly longer...then I can sling on my shoulder with more ease. It's tight now. hahaha.

Kevin said...

Ahah...a true bag 'expert'...:-P Yes, half of the bag is filled with paper stuffing. Half is my belongings. But I did bring my diary and my 'Bringing Home The Birkin' Book with me. So that's heavy. I carry lots of things when I go out:-P My arms is so aching that sat.

Dude, Im loving the downtown and the mini lin together! Looks great! And I must agree with toosan, after recently purchasing two YSL's, I am a firm believer =)

Wax said...

The downtown and mini lin look so cute together! Nice outfit too, Kevin! ;)

Kevin said...

Thanks Wax and Nathan! Yeah, I agree...the min li surprisingly goes well with the YSL Downtown's brown colour and leather. The differenc is texture and material is somewhat complimentary:-P

simon magat said...

hi is that a downtown medium or an oversize??

Kevin said...

That's a large downtown:-) Medium is too small for me:-)

this bag is beautiful...:)
where have you bought this?
and how much does it cost?
thank you!

Kevin said...

I got this bag at the YSL Boutique at Paragon last year. See my YSL DOwntown post for details.

For your info., this is a women's bag...but I have seen quite a number of guys carrying this.:-)

bagcraze said...

aarghh it looks great on you. i've been liking the DT for years but never really end up buying it because i think the depth of the bag is kinda too much for me frame :(

btw, u look great!

Kevin said...

Thanks Diana:-)

Yeah, Downtown bag is a classic that never goes out of style. I agree the large downtown can be overwhelming in size for a lady. That is probably one of the reasons, its big size, that men can also carry this bag.

I always go to your blog if I want to find a certain bag. hehe. You got a great pics resource there.

oh, i have read your post and wonder where you can find all the babys ;))

i know that this is a women´s bag but i am very tall and think that this would carry me (i would carry it) quite good...

is this a seasonal item or could i get this in the next sale?
thank you!

Kevin said...

Downtown bags in deerskin like mine are seasonal items and do get markdown end of season. Your best bet is the YSL stores or if you are near any YSL outlets, those will be the best!:-)

I bought mine during the sale last dec in Singapore's YSL store.

Good luck hunting! Tall guys can rock this bag easily:-)

this outfit rocks. i'm quite a fan of the downtown as well but i can only wear the 'stout' one. the leather on yours is divine.
