The Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Bag. Doesn’t this name sound familiar? Yes it does, because there is a leather edition of the Rive Gauche Bag. However, the new Linen version looks totally different in terms of shape and design.
So where does the name Rive Gauche came from? Well, the La Rive Gauche is the southern bank of the river Seine in Paris. This river cuts the city in two. In general, the Rive Gauche is referring to the Paris of an earlier era – the artists, writers and philosophers in Paris.
Now introducing the Saint Laurent Linen Rive Gauche Bag for the Cruise 2017 Collection.
The Rive Gauche Bag is made from cotton, which means it’s stronger than leather. It can be used in multiple ways like a shopping bag, a beach bag or a weekend bag. The good thing about cotton is that you can drop a lot of heavy stuff inside and you don’t need to worry that it will expand when you overstuff it.
The leather edition of the Rive Gauche Bag is a bit curvier and definitely chic’er. The Linen edition has a boxy shape and it’s crafted with button closures on the top. The center is printed with the house’s name including the bag’s name, which reads: Rive Gauche, Saint Laurent.
This bag comes with leather flat handles and can be carried on your shoulder or just by hand.
The Linen Rive Gauche Bag is cute and minimalistic. The interior is spacious and strong enough to carry heavy essentials. Perhaps it’s a great bag for the busy woman, who needs to carry more than the basic essentials or need to carry for two or more people.
Inside this bag you can find one large main compartment and one zippered pocket.
