Saint Laurent Loulou Large Review


The Saint Laurent Loulou collection has been called an “instant classic” by the fashion community. It was named after Yves Saint Laurent’s muse, Loulou de La Falaise. According to Christopher Petkanas book, “Loulou and Yves”, he once said that “her presence is a dream” and that she has made his work easier because he “trusts her reactions”. 

The Loulou, much like its inspiration, is also a dream. It features soft, buttery calfskin leather, chevron quilting, a beautiful strap and the iconic YSL logo. The line feels classy and sophisticated but at the same time edgy and fresh. Color wise it comes in the classic black and beige as well as in different seasonal colors and materials (for example suede, denim or fabric). The Loulou line comes in 4 different sizes: the Toy, Small, Medium and Large.

The Large Loulou is the biggest Loulou bag and perfect for someone who likes to carry a lot with them, or that wants to use the bag as a travel bag, diaper bag or needs larger items to fit inside (such as books or a laptop). The Large is very similar looking to the Small and Medium, featuring the same quilted leather and beautiful chain with leather pads, however, the Large is significantly bigger and is best worn on the shoulder with the strap doubled. When worn as a single strap it measures 19,6 inches and doubled up it is 9,8 inches which is similar to the Medium and slightly shorter than the Small.

In our opinion, the Large Loulou makes a great bag for those of you who like or need to carry a lot. It is similar in capacity to a regular tote but it’s more stylish and secure.

Saint Laurent Large Loulou Review
Staying Power
Price-Quality Ratio
  • Fits a lot, including an laptop, so it’s a good option for those of you that need to carry more on a day to day basis
  • A beautiful, classic bag that is still interesting due to the chevron quilts and bold hardware
  • The Loulou line is very trendy at the moment while still being classic
  • A good price point for a really large designer handbag
  • Comfortable to wear since because it has a leather pad on the chain, however, it is not a light bag and it will get heavy if you fill it at capacity
  • Three different ways to wear it: on the shoulder with the long strap, on the shoulder double strapped and crossbody
  • The leather is beautifully soft, yet it wears pretty well
  • It is a very large bag so it might not look or feel great if you’re on the petite side (although if you love it, we say rock it!)
  • The YSL monogram is quite big and naturally prone to scratches
  • Due to the YSL monogram logo it might not be a good choice for some that prefer more understated bags, especially as work handbags
  • No back pocket which would have been quite convenient
  • No feet on the bottom which could be quite handy for a larger bag
  • Because of its size does not work well as an evening bag
  • The magnet closure is quite strong and some have reported concerns over damaging the flap when pulling it to open
  • Even though it can be worn crossbody it is not necessarily comfortable to do so because it is quite a bulky and large bag
