There’s an undeniable cool that surrounds the Saint Laurent brand, something that they have turned into physical form with their bags. Think: the 61, the Université, the Kaia (named after Kaia Gerber, of course), all of which have made it into the wardrobes of some of the world’s most stylish personalities.
The latest bag style from Saint Laurent that has us obsessed is the Carré—a boxy satchel that can be slung across the body, or carried casually on the shoulder. No detail has been spared in its creation as well: it is made with the house’s top-notch craftsmanship and the traditions of maroquinerie (leather making) to give us a modern icon.
The box leather used for the bag is hand-treated for a rigid, glossy effect; the edges of the bag have been thinned for a sleeker, streamlined look; and the inner lining is made from plongé lambskin, which has been made elastic and marks-resistant thanks to a special treatment. This means no more accidental scratches and painful blemishes—score!
For the new season, Saint Laurent has introduced several lust-worthy new colours for the Carré as well—Sapphire Blue, Rouge Opium and Dark Sun. But we’re taking inspiration from Blackpink’s Rosé on how to style the bag: fitted grey blazer over a classic graphic, black-and-white shirt and trouser combination, accessorised simply with the Carré satchel worn crossbody. It may look simple, but it will never go out of style.
