Yves Saint Laurent Violet Downtown Tote
Looking for a hot designer bag for the fall? Well, here is one that is absolutely perfect for the new purple trend that will be hitting the arms of many this upcoming season. The Downtown Tote by YSL is now available in a gorgeous purple hue called violet. The Downtown is a classic bag itself and it comes in a variety of colors, textures, and exotics prints. But, there is definitely something special about the violet version. Maybe it’s because we usually don’t see virbant shades in the YSL collection. But I am really loving this new color and hopefully, we will see some more waves of purples and reds for this fall.
The Downtown Tote is made of calfskin, which is supple, luxurious, and high quality leather. Throughout the exterior of the bag, there are minimal yet visible gold brushed hardware details. I love pruple and gold combo because it’s so rich looking. And I think the alternative silver application would have been lovely, but a bit plain. Anyways, other characteristics are a front pocket, straps long enough to comfortably fit over the shoulder, and canvas lining with a zip pocket and suede trim along the top. Lastly, this bag measures 19″ x 13.5″ x 9.5″, which is huge and has the capacity to fit a ton! If you act fast and head on over to Bluefly right now, you can snag this purple hottie for 20% off the retail price, or $1,436.
