Saint Laurent Loulou Styles
The collection of Saint Laurent Loulou styles honors Yves Saint Laurent’s muse and dear friend, Loulou de la Falaise. Regardless of which Loulou bag you choose, nearly all of them feature the iconic YSL hardware (also known as the ‘Cassandre,’ which is a reference to the graphic designer Pierre Berge who adopted the pseudonym Cassandre and created the iconic monogram of three simple intertwined initials for the house).
When you think of the Saint Laurent Loulou, it’s safe to assume that you think of the iconic Y Quilted Monogram Shoulder bag. This style comes in two options: the classic crossbody version with a leather strap and the satchel version with a chain strap. The strap is dependent on which size you choose. More on that in a bit!
