One of the bags that has been sitting high on my #lovelovelove list ever since it was launched is the Classic Sac De Jour, a rejigged reinterpreted reimagined framed top handle bag from Saint Laurent that everyone knows looks like someone else’s bag but still loves nonetheless. And the surest way to know if the bag is popular is to count the new season variations/sizes because the way I see it, the more there are this season just reflects on how well it did last season.
And in the case of the SDJ, there’s no denying its status of currently holding top position as the French luxury house’s ‘it’ bag, especially with the two newish sizes just added to the family. First up, the Nano Classic Sac De Jour, which is as small as it gets for the SDJ. Measuring some 22 cm by 18 cm, it lacks nothing of the features that come with her bigger siblings and you’ll still find the long shoulder sling, slot pocket, padlock and key, albeit shrunken every so slightly just to up its ‘cute’ factor.
The bag now comes in four sizes and a host of colors and leathers, and many of you requested a Sac de Jour edition of our Ultimate Bag Guides in order to demystify the shopping process. Ask and ye shall receive; check out everything we know about the SDJ below, including prices, size comparisons and where to buy one of your very own.
Also available in a variety of colours and finishes, the ones that are available now in Singapore include the ones in Violet (shown above), Fog (you know, that perfect shade of misty grey) and Black. Priced from SGD3440 and up, it’s a good size for work and play. Well, maybe just play, because if it is for work I’ll probably go up another size or two.
