Sac De Jour fans, buckle yourselves in for this:

I just saw a few pre-order SDJs for 2017 and I think that some of the changes that will be seen in the new range include
  • Side tabs has one or two visible studs, depending on the size (looks like the hidden snaps will be replaced)
  • New hanging tag charm comes with the usual padlock
  • Leather seems softer and slouchier like the original SDJs from 2013 - the shape looks less structured overall
  • Medium size will be available again
  • Inner removable pouch is partially fabric (this should help reduce the weight of the bags)
  • Shoulder strap attaches on the sides, above the gusseted portion
Which design do you prefer? NMV3F3N_mz1.png NMV3FLD_mz1.png NMV3F3U_mz1.png BGV3F3T_mz1.jpg

I think that the leather would feel nicer to the touch in the new version but I definitely prefer the design and structured look of the older version.

There are also new SDJs for Spring 2017 that look the same as last year's model. I saw some at Barneys.com. I think this is just a seasonal variation and will not be replacing the original. ( Here is one: http://www.barneys.com/product/saint-laurent-small-sac-de-jour-505036165.html )

While I prefer the structured model circa 2014 (not the newer 'wavy' ones) I do like this model. It does look more like a blatant birkin rip off though. It brings to mind Jane Birkin's black birkin bags that she uses until they are worn out, and Kate Moss's out of shape original SDJ. I would have to see it in person though to really make up my mind.

I think it has an edgier look and it's tempting to think you wouldn't have to 'baby' it, like I do with my structured smooth leather ones.

Not loving it at all, the 2013 model was already perfect as is. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Not for me. I like the texture of leather, but not the slouchiness and those studs - not my taste.
