Saint Laurent Loulou Toy 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 Toy Loulou is the smallest Loulou and differs from the line because it has an all leather strap as opposed to a chain strap with a leather pad. It has a magnetic snap closure, two main compartments, a zip pocket and three card slots which is quite well organized for a small bag.

PROS
  • A great bag for evening or running errands if you only need very few items with you
  • 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
  • One of the cheapest designer handbags, can be a great first designer handbag
  • Versatile, as can fit daily essentials but can also be worn as a clutch since the chain is detachable
  • Very comfortable to wear since the strap is all leather and since it’s a small bag it will never really get heavy
  • The strap is adjustable which is a huge plus especially if you generally find handbag straps either too short or long
  • The leather is beautifully soft, yet it wears pretty well
CONS
  • Even though the strap is detachable it’s a bit uncomfortable to wear it as a clutch since it is quite a bulky bag
  • 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
  • The middle pocket inside the bag can be annoying if you want to fit a bulkier item. It’s also slightly redundant as the bag is quite small, so we would argue it didn’t need the extra pocket
