Yves Saint Laurent Uptown Bag

After browsing, ogling, and feeling up practically every designer handbag this season, I'm crowning Yves Saint Laurent my overall favorite designer. The iconic fashion label stepped it up a notch or ten with successful after successful handbag creation. Among the winners are the ever-popular 'Muse', celebrity favorites 'Downtown' and 'Tribute' bags and the 'Rive Gauche' tote, my personal pick (sigh!). The 'reversible tote' needs a season or more to prove itself a worthy competitor for its' sister bags, but this newest addition has its' first official fan (raising my hand).

The Uptown Bag is, by far, the most sophisticated design YSL has produced in recent memory. This version, measuring 11.5 x 8.5 x 4.5, is crafted from patent leather with gold-tone hardware and a vintage-inspired metal frame. Dual top handles, flap with turn-lock closure, attached leather logo charm, and satin-lined interior with zip pocket all herald back to the early days of this fashion giant. I'm not certain how successful this latest design will be in comparison to the rest of the YSL handbag family, but it should be just as popular solely on the basis of its' superior quality.

Pre-order the black version or this stunning navy incarnation (Pictured) for $1895 via Saks Fifth Avenue.
