Saint Laurent Cabas Rive Gauche Bag Review

Posted in Bags, Saint Laurent

Step out in style with this sweet sibling of Sac De Jour bag, yes, they do look the same, both polished, both posh and both extra chic, except that the Sac De Jour is heavier. Here, we are certainly talking about the Saint Laurent Cabas Rive Gauche bag, which was introduced in February 2016. The Cabas bag is as classic as this one and is economical too. With the same great quality, this is a gorgeous and chic piece, perfect for everyday from none other than Saint Laurent, as we all are aware about the label’s supreme efficiency for making tote bags.

In keeping with the classics tradition, this stunning duffle bag has a design that speaks so much. We can’t just wait to have a Saint Laurent classic in our wardrobe, with the front small letters logo and the hanging YSL tag. The Cabas Rive Gauche bag is not too boxy nor too structured. Rather its quite soft, squishy and slouchy, all thanks to its leather


We can’t just wait to praise more and more about its looks, the way gussets can wing out like a luggage tote, the cute slouchy look of this not-too-structured bag, zipped top and magnetic back pocket. This minimalistic bag is less structured than the SDJ (Sac De Jour) bag and thus its slouchier , keep its shape and is a tad more relaxed. Instead of large YSL logo in its exterior the bag is subtler with the small logo lettering in the top centre of the bag.

The small size has handles that are little too short, thus fitting much easier over the crook of your arm, being handheld the bag looks too damn cute. The larger version fits much easier over the crook of my arm, except for its large enough to fit everything and hard enough to carry. Medium size is a better shape but too heavy as well as big for a petite frame, Moreover, this classic addition comes from timeless solid colours, so if you travel a lot than this thing is the best. For versatility, the bag does come with a detachable shoulder strap.

Slouchy shape- it bothers some, especially if the size is smaller. As the small size looks too triangular from the sideways (almost like a Hershey’s kiss) and the base is too wide as compared to the top, the Cabas Rive Gauche falls way too awkwardly when worn cross body.


Not a huge fan of small space? Well this one is just made for you. The Saint Laurent Cabas Rive Gauche bag is spacious enough to put all your essentials in style. The bag is more practical because it’s light and secure. If we compare it to SDJ then the bag is lighter. It opens wider to unveil a soft suede lining, interior zip pocket and two slot pockets for organization of your stuff.
