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.
