Got a total crush on Bella Hadid plus her micro bag? Or Rosie Huntington Whiteley’s brand new forest green bag? Or gorgeous Angelina Jolie’s black bag? And that’s not all; celebs like Kate Moss, Reese Witherspoon and Gigi Hadid are die-hard fan of this modern classic. It’s made for every age group, for every single personal style and it’s a wardrobe must-have. And yes, we do think that you deserve to know about this minimalistic yet timeless design didn’t you? So the name is Saint Laurent Sac de Jour bag.
But let’s be real, this brand new update of February 2016 can be said as a slight resemblance of the iconic Hermes Birkin, of course if you take a closer look at the gusset style, the belt around closure, clochette with keys and boxy trapezoidal shape. Especially the first edition is somewhat closer to the luxurious pattern of Sac de Jour. What’s the difference then? Your classic Birkin might be a little overwrought; the SDJ is minimalistic in design, so you might consider it as your perfect accessory this season.
Pulling the trigger of innovation, Hedi Slimane joined the regal Saint Laurent house in 2013 and dropped Yves from the name. Soon the Saint Laurent Paris Sac de Jour was born and you won’t even believe how the revenues skyrocketed. Since then, in four year this ‘day bag; has shown an impressive turnaround as the revenues tripled between 2011 and 2016.
And now, as the modernized take on the classic Birkin silhouette is introduced, we soon saw this beauty on the arms of multiple celebrities, they too can’t resist the charm of Saint Laurent Sac de Jour.
Now is the time to feast your eyes on the design that is not only iconic, but is competing against ‘The Birkin’, incredible! Isn’t it? With a minimal design, leather-encased weighty padlock, messenger strap, two tubular handles, accordion side panels, discreetly stamped frontal logo, luxurious leather, protective metal feet, contrasting topstitching for a graphic boost and tag.
Looking for a grown up sophisticated bag? Well, this is indeed grown-up with versatility in mind. Firstly, the concertina sides or shall we say- the accordion side panels expand to create more room in the compact but well-organized interior. Secondly, you are generously granted the two options for carrying the Sac de Jour. You can switch between either the top handles or the optional shoulder strap.
Simplicity is the key with just a touch of fresh and crisp leather and brand new hues, like this season the new deep wine colored bag has arrived in all its glory. More solid shades are available with delicious picks like croc-embossed leather and calf-hair leather.
Here’s the back-story of the Sac de Jour, the bag of first generation was a substantial bag, quite heavy and large with suede lining. As the years passed, more sizes were introduced and the bulky ones soon disappeared with the suede lining as well, yes- the suede lining. Firstly, the lining was replaced with fabric and soon it was altogether removed by the label, making the bag lighter. And then, last but not the least; your beloved shoulder strap was added.
Though the bag is structured, it holds shape making it more functional. And don’t just talk about its perfect hardware; the even stitching, exemplary symmetry, top-grade material and sturdy silhouette is a perfection like never before.
There’s a new bag in your life! What’s more? It will put all your cumbersome-to-carry belongings inside it, from your wallet to cosmetic bag, a full size hairbrush, keys, etc. Even the smallest size SDJ (measuring 12.5” wide, 10” tall and 6.5” deep) can hold your small tablet along with other essentials. This thing will help you travel from office to dinner being a more versatile companion than other sizes. As an added bonus, the compartments of the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour are quite narrow to fit your stuff.
Not just an abundantly selling rip-off with a good exterior and a roomy interior, the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour is much more, especially if we shed light on its organization. The suede-lined interior comes with a treasure of useful pockets, including the zipper compartments for the safety of your cash, cards and stuff. This bag opens to reveal two main compartments, which are separated by a central zippered compartment.
