Saint Laurent Loulou Small 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 Small Loulou is larger than the Toy and it is the smallest Loulou that comes with a chain strap . It has a magnetic snap closure, two main compartments, a zip pocket and one open pocket which is perfect if you want to keep your items super organized. The strap length is 22 inches and 12 inches when you double it.

Our Review
Saint Laurent Small Loulou Review
Staying Power
Price-Quality Ratio
  • A great bag everyday bag that fits more than bare essentials while still being pretty small
  • 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
  • Compared to other similar bags, the YSL Loulou are quite well priced
  • Versatile, you can wear the small Loulou from day to night although it probably won’t work for very formal events
  • It’s also versatile in ways of wearing it - you can wear it with a long chain on the shoulder, double the chain as a shoulder bag or crossbody.
  • The leather is beautifully soft, the bag is not rigid even though it is structured
  • It has been reported that the magnet closure is quite strong
  • No back pocket if we compare it to the Chanel 19
  • 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
