Le 37 

Timeless in its design, the bucket bag stands as an enduring classic that transcends trends, securing its place as a must-have for any handbag aficionado. And what chicer way to introduce the bucket bag into your collection, than with Saint Laurent’s Le 37?

Crafted from supple Italian leather, the Le 37 boasts a clean bucket-style silhouette that will age gracefully with time. Its hallmark Cassandre emblem not only adds a touch of luxury but also secures the otherwise open-top bag with its hook fastening. 

The structured top handle remains a constant, while an adjustable shoulder strap allows versatile style – be it hand-carry, shoulder, or crossbody. Each size variant of the Le 37 is also accompanied by a detachable zip pouch.

Currently available in three sizes – from the coveted mini to the practical yet chic medium – the Le 37 predominantly showcases black glossy calfskin leather, with gold-tone hardware. However, in medium, Saint Laurent offers a brushed calfskin leather option complete with silver-tone details. For those seeking an alternative to black, a vegetable-tanned iteration in a classic ‘brick’ color is available for pre-order at $3,100.

Prices range from $2,100 for the mini to $2,990 for the medium. Boasting a sleek and clean appearance, the Le 37’s smooth leather is prone to visible scratches, which might not be ideal for those concerned about visible wear and tear on their bags.


Perhaps you’re seeking a Saint Laurent silhouette that stands out? Look no further than the Sade Tube bag. Evoking a wave of nostalgia, the bag is designed with a distinctive cylindrical form that reimagines styles from the early 2000s.

Characterized by oversized diamond quilted lambskin, the Sade exudes a charm reminiscent of Chanel, minus the hefty price tag. Adorned with bronze-tone hardware and YSL’s signature Cassandre emblem, this bag is finished with a zippered closure. Available in black or vintage white, the Saint Laurent Sade caters to lovers of classic colorways. For those looking to add some additional texture to their closet, the Sade Tube bag also is available in suede and a shearling option.

Designed to be worn on the shoulder or by hand, these tube-style bags feature a non-adjustable chain shoulder strap. Offered in a mini size, coming in at 7.9 x 3.9 x 3.9 inches retailing for $1,390, and a small size measuring 9.4 x 4.7 x 4.7 inches priced at $1,790, their shape ensures a comfortable and neat fit against the body. While perfect as a chic clutch, the Saint Laurent Sade might not suit crossbody enthusiasts.


Sometimes size really does matter and big just might be big enough. So if you’re seeking a large bag without being oversized like the Saint Laurent Icare Maxi. . . . meet the Bea.

Embracing an east-west silhouette, this tote disguises itself with its winged-out design, offering collapsible sides that can be easily adjusted with inner ties. The unmistakable Cassandre logo serves a dual purpose, both as a hallmark and as a tab closure.

Assembled from supple-grained deerskin, the Bea tote is available exclusively in black complemented by bronze-tone hardware. With generous dimensions of 19.7 x 11 x 7.1 inches, this soft tote effortlessly collapses, and can seamlessly transition from everyday wear to a travel companion. 

Discover the Bea tote at Saint Laurent boutiques and online, priced at $3,450.
