Saint Laurent Loulou Medium Review

Description

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 Medium Loulou is the third biggest Loulou bag and perfect for someone who needs to carry more than just essentials on a day to day basis. The Small and Medium Loulou look very similar, featuring the same quilted leather and beautiful chain with leather pads, however, the Medium is significantly bigger and is best worn on the shoulder with the strap doubled. When worn as a single strap it measures 19 inches and doubled up it is 10 inches which is slightly shorter than the Small Loulou.

In our opinion, the Medium Loulou makes a great bag for work as it fits quite a lot, including an iPad, a notebook, water bottle and it is also very elegant and stylish. However, one must note that unfortunately it does not fit a laptop, so if you need to carry your laptop with you, then sadly the Medium Loulou is not for you.

PROS
  • 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 bigger designer handbag that is appropriate for wearing to work as well as casually
  • 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
  • Fits quite a lot, including an iPad, so it’s a good option for those of you that need to carry more on a day to day basis
  • The leather is beautifully soft, yet it wears pretty well
CONS
  • 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
  • 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 bag
  • Does not fit a laptop, so if you need to carry a laptop with you then you should consider the next size up
