Saint Laurent is a brand I can’t seem to stop loving, whether it’s their Sac de Jour (my one true love!) or their serpentine boots. In fact, the house’s bags may not look the most innovative, but I think all of them are true classics, starting from their Kate to the Niki to the Loulou, and one of their most iconic and functional bags are the Shopping Tote.
Designed with extremely clean lines, an open top, huge space measuring 17″ by 13″ to house all of your daily (and often highly random) necessities, adjustable handles that easily fit your shoulders and with a detachable leather pochette to secure your essentials, the Shopping Tote has a timeless appeal. Therefore, it’s only fitting that Saint Laurent would launch a special edition of this uber-popular tote, so here we have from SSENSE, the Saint Laurent Tan Shearling Medium East/West Shopping Tote.
Crafted from the finest nubuck calfskin with accents and an interior made entirely of shearling, this is one perfect bag for fall that you wouldn’t wanna miss.
The twin carry handles at the top can be fastened with a pin-buckle, while the bag itself can be secured at the throat with a post-stud fastening (though not fully closed). The zippered pouch is made from the same soft tan-hued lambskin, and just like the exterior of the tote, features buffed leather so as to reduce the delicacy of the otherwise risky and scratch-prone calfskin. Completed with gold tone hardware, a gold logo on the pouch and a discreet, debossed logo at the face, this highly functional piece ensures you don’t scream “I’m a logo-maniac” when you carry this to work, but at the same time, subtly signals aficionados that you’re a person of style. This can be paired up with a cozy cashmere suit or a decidedly more casual jacket and you’re guaranteed to look like you’re the Queen of Fall fashion (even if you’re freezing on the inside!)
Add this extremely versatile and neutral, but deceptively elegant tote to your winter flair from SSENSE today!
