Yves Saint Laurent Tanger Handbag Collection
I don’t know anybody who has ever disagreed with the statement, that the house of Yves Saint Laurent comes out with classic handbags. Styles that are so simple and clean, destined to last years without the fear of becoming dated. They’re the type of bags that years down the road, when your grandchildren are rummaging through your long forgotten about treasure trove of vintage purses, will still be in.
One of the latest new pieces by Yves Saint Laurent, is the Tanger. The Tanger isn’t your ordinary YSL handbag, as you might have noticed the intense gloss of the fabric. The Tanger line is made completely of Satin, for a more dressy look.
What’s great about this line, and I’m sure most will agree with me, is that it’s so much cheaper than the leather line. The Large Pouchette (8.5″ width x 4.5″ height x 1/2″ depth) retails for only $345 and the Large Tote (14″ width x 13″ height x 4″ depth ) retails for $645.
However, since this bag is made of satin, I’m sure it’s not going to be as durable as the daily leather version. Although, since the bags are made completely of satin, I doubt one would use this as an everyday bag. Semi-dressy, the glossy look would complement any evening look.
What do you ladies think of the satin Tanger?
