They've moved on from the big metal logo - how do you feel about the new look?
I like the 61 bag with the embossed logo. It’s good that they share designing bags that appeal to minimalist. Sometimes for work etc you may need a tote bag like the manhattan that has the Saint Laurent name gold bar but more discreet.They've moved on from the big metal logo - how do you feel about the new look?
I’ve seen the Manhattan bag in person. It’s not heavy but it will definitely scratch easily.I’d be curious to see a SL Manhattan in person, defo looks like an Hermès look-alike... not sure how I feel about it. I’m drawn to it but I find I don’t use my two big Saint Laurent bags because they’re both heavy and the leather scratches soooo easily.
The first two bags look like Rebecca Minkoff w/out the logo.
It's like the right and the left sides of the company's brain are not communicating lately. First they let someone change the name to SL(o)P, now some the bags look like generic 1980s dept store bags. I don't dislike these bags and I do like the embossed (a reissue of a vintage bag) but I would't be paying YSL prices for one.
Usually I'm an advocate of understated chic but the Iconic Cassandre designed YSL (designed 1961) is often the whole point of the bags. They are accessories to enliven an outfit, worn like costume jewellery, nonchalance and Rive Gauche spirit. I get they are trying to get in front of the no-logo wave plus great hardware is the most expensive part of a bag to make but these are too anonymous, too medium, too ubiquitous. These bags need a little something extra.
It's funny you should say that, because now this high end designer brand's acronym can now look like the word "slop"!!I don't like it, but they are not allowed to use the Yves name anymore so they had to change the name to SLOP. I had a feeling this would happen and the logo would go to just SL or something smaller.
They're not allowed to use the word Yves which means the YSL logo can't be used as well?I don't like it, but they are not allowed to use the Yves name anymore so they had to change the name to SLOP. I had a feeling this would happen and the logo would go to just SL or something smaller.
