Saint Laurent Classic Duffle Bag

First spotted on Kate Moss, then followed by the likes of Beyonce and Gwyenth Paltrow... The Saint Laurent Classic Duffle Bag has seen its fair share of celebrity patronage. It’s now one of the most recognisable bag in recent months.

Hedi Slimane may have been garnering mixed reviews over his overhaul at YSL. His womenswear collections are either loved or frown upon by fashion critics, but one thing’s for sure.... this guy creates things that fans want. Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent do translate well in sales, seeing how a large number of retailers are enthusiastically stocking his creations.

The Saint Laurent Classic Duffle Bag is positioned as a unisex bag, keeping in line with Hedi Slimane’s fascination with androgyny. Minimal lines and timeless details also reinforce this intention. Crafted with smooth calf leather or a mix of calf leather and suede, the bag comes in 3 sizes, affectionately differentiated in sizing by numbers of 12, 24 and 48. There is also a removable shoulder strap which I love, as you can transform the bag's look easily with the versatility of shoulder sling, hand carry or cross body carry. The Saint Laurent Classic Duffle, an arm candy of understated sophistication and high functionality.

Ladies may look chic with the bag, but guys can work the design equally well. Just check out the pic above. Now I am sold to the idea I need this bag in my collection!

The Saint Laurent Classic Duffle bag retails for US$2650 (Classic Duffel 12), US$3150 (Classic Duffel 24 - Size 17.5” x 13” x 8”, Drop 6”) and US$3650 (Classic Duffel 48). Now available at
