The large and practical Roady by Yves Saint Laurent has received a noteworthy makeover this season. The French house has skipped the holiday festive and introduced shades of scarlet, whites, and classic black into an image of cheerful poppy floral prints.
This season, floral appliqué seemed to be pretty popular amongst many fashion designers but I tend to prefer prints to textile appliqué. The oversized poppy presentation highlights the sketch and prevents the look of your grandmothers’ floral curtains. I’m no botanist, and I was first introduced to the Poppy flower via Coach’s poppy collection several years back. Although I always admired the collection, I never acquired one of their pieces, who knows, this may be my chance to finally obtain a poppy-print handbag for once.
This tote can be carried throughout the holiday seasons as its colors coordinate with these celebratory times and it would make a nice pick for the warmer climates ahead. Just do keep in mind that wearing single-colored articles of clothing is key to prevent color clashes and to draw more emphasis on Yves Saint Laurent’s statement design. The round leather top-handle, the sleek and roomy silhouette and the classic hobo design are all great features that make up the Roady.
