Saint Laurent Classic Kate Bag Review

Posted in Bags, Saint Laurent

Hey! We ought to blame it on ourselves- we’ve come a long long way without knowing about the Classic Kate, the ideal day or evening shoulder bag. From the Parisian fashion house of Saint Laurent, it comes with all the traits of this label. What’s more? Well this one here, is the most coveted classic from Saint Laurent. Its spiffy, its lavish and all in all its a cool timeless bag.

Amidst all those let’s-carry-Chanel-and-Hermes-bag madness, an exemplary balance between contemporary and classic stepped in, and we literally can’t get enough of this Saint Laurent Classic Kate bag. Case in point; this up-to-the-minute accessory has still a contemporary edge to it. Made exclusively in Italy, this compact piece is complete with chain shoulder strap, magnetic fastening and its exclusive signature lettered logo. Choose a pop color and jazz up any of your outlook, for instance choose a subtle color or all-black outfit and show off this bag as your style statement.

Design

We’ve certainly never seen anything like this one before! Your Classic Kate boasts an interlocking metal YSL signature on the front, metal chain tassel, chain linked shoulder strap, full facing flap, and a structured silhouette. With a classic and timeless look this bag is apt for every single occasion, the colours, styles and patterns (like with or without tassels) vary from season to season and occasions like special to casual. Moreover, your minimalistic and classic Saint Laurent bag does come in three sizes; small, medium and large.

Interior

Ditching Chanel clutches for this classic Kate bag? No biggie, as this one is as easy to wear as Saint Laurent’s other bags. You can dress it up or down with everything and anything; whether its a chic cocktail dress, a boyfriend jeans, wear it on your shoulder as a long crossbody messenger bag or carry it as an evening clutch.Your tiny ol’ bag in a fabric lining interior is totally functional and roomy enough to put all your just-essentials. For organization, Saint Laurent Classic Kate bag comes with a small patch pocket for keys, gloss or cash and card slots for all your essential cards.

For years we have talked about those ditching bags that looks something and behave like something else, but the Classic Kate is a far cry from all these. It looks tiny and it is tiny in reality as well, if you put too much in this bag than you have to rearrange it too. Plus, your beloved iPhone Plus won’t fit in, you have to stash it diagonally somehow, as a result it will take all of the available space. Though, any other small cell won’t be a big problem. For all your essential daily basis things there is plenty of room.

We aren’t exaggerating, but the medium size in this Saint Laurent classic kate bag is just so lovely! The space is apt to carry your keys, lip products, makeup, phone, compact, key pouch, card case and all other little things. And also, you can easily access in and out of this thing because of the magnetic closure (which is very strong in its part).

Its not often that a bag comes only with advantages, it has some cons too, like the others. First of all, the chain can be a tad bit painful, especially if you are wearing it on your bare shoulders. After a while it starts to dig in your skin, so you just have to switch shoulder, in case you are obsessed with YSL logo classics.

Secondly, the smooth leather one is prone to scratches and stains so you can choose the textured one (for ones who don’t believe in the concept of ‘handle with care’.). The one with textured leather can be scratched but it won’t be a big problem. Also, the tassel sometimes gets stuck on the bag’s metal logo.
