Saint Laurent – Puffer Small Review
Saint Laurent – Puffer Small Review
This classy Toy Puffer is the perfect size for your essentials as it fits a great amount of stuff: phone, wallet, keys, and makeup pouch – just the essentials for a night out on the town or a coffee date with friends.
The YSL Puffer was launched in 2019 as a play on the successful Loulou Line. Indeed the Puffer feels very similar to the Loulou, just a little bit more.. puffy. It has been described as a “squishy pillow” in the “softest lambskin leather”. The line feels a bit more casual and less structured than the Loulou line while still being very classy and sophisticated. It comes in 3 sizes: a toy, small and a medium (sometimes called large in the bag community). The Puffer line is very on trend, and, like the Chanel 19 it was spotted on many celebrities and influencers.
The Puffer comes in black and cream as well as many seasonal colors. It also comes in different hardware: gold, silver, ruthenium and black hardware as well as different materials: lambskin, crinkled calfskin, shearling, denim, etc.
Like the Loulou, the Puffer features a beautiful chain strap with leather pads which you can wear it long (on your shoulder or crossbody) or you can double it up and wear it on your shoulder.

The Small Puffer is perfect for someone who needs to carry more than strict necessities but do not want to carry a bigger bag or a tote. The Small Puffer is still quite a roomy bag that fits a lot but is smaller than the Medium and can be easily worn cross body as well as on the shoulder with the strap long or doubled.
In our opinion, the Small Puffer makes a great everyday bag that is roomy but can be transitioned from day to night which makes it one of the most versatile Saint Laurent bags.
11.4 X 6.6 X 4.3 in
- A smartphone
- A cardholder or small wallet
- Keys with a key pouch
- Small Makeup pouch
- A beautiful, trendy handbag that is super in at the moment
- A good price point for a versatile designer handbag that is appropriate for wearing both during the day and night
- Comfortable to wear since because it has a leather pad on the chain and it is quite a lightweight bag
- Three different ways to wear it: on the shoulder with the long strap, on the shoulder double strapped and crossbody
- Fits quite a lot for a relatively small bag, including a water bottle due to the fact that the interior is just a big open space
- The leather is beautifully soft, and squishy like a pillow
- It features one main compartment which is both a pro and a con depending on what you like to carry in your 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, 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
- The puffer is considered a trendier bag, so if you prefer a more classic bag try looking at the Loulou line
