Yves Saint Laurent Calypso

My love affair with YSL is never-ending. It's very difficult for me to find fault with their ultra chic and elegant bags. The Calypso Bag is one of those designs that's perfect in every way. The luxurious pearl white Riz de Grain leather, twisted top handles, loosely-structured shape and roomy 19 x 14 x 6 size make this YSL bag purchase (eerily similar to the 'Muse' except for the less obvious stitched "Y" on the front exterior) a no-brainer. My next observation is merely that and not meant as a criticism. For the hefty price of $2095, I expect a better interior lining than canvas (as nice as that canvas may be). Even that small detail cannot detract from the 'Calypso's' understated beauty. It's a pricey bag, but YSL is on fire lately and their bags have "staying power" written all over them.
