Er, hello little Yves Saint Laurent mini bag and welcome to my imaginary wardrobe. This little number – the Yves Saint Laurent signature closure leather bag – is perfectly on trend for the new season with its luxe jewel tone, buckle and gold hardware.
And, with its slightly textured surface, ‘Y’ logo insert and inside hidden snap closure, YSL have created a fashion classic that it is going to be very difficult to say no to.
It even hits the mark when it comes to versatility. Adjust its shoulder strap at your fashion will, and shoulder it, sling it across-the-body or just pocket the little thing (it’s nearly small enough). This is a statement mini bag if I ever saw one.
In my book, there are only two glitches here. Firstly, green isn’t my colour – I can go as far as a fresh minty shades, but when it nears the deeper side it just doesn’t work for me. Spray it with a fabulous lilac or purple, however, and I’m there.
Secondly, it really hits the old bank balance hard – at £550 it’s just a little too steep for a mini-bag. I mean, I can’t even fit this month’s issue of Vogue in it.
