Hedi Slimane departed Saint Laurent over 3 years ago, and until recently, Saint Laurent still looked nearly identically to the Slimane-era Saint Laurent. Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello has worked to put his own spin on the brand, and little by little Vaccarello’s touches have trickled out. For the last decade or more, Saint Laurent’s bags have been easily identifiable due to the brand’s iconic YSL logo. This season Vaccarello has take the logo love to new heights with the introduction of an all over logo monogram canvas. These new designs won’t come as a shock to many, as the logo obsession has reached new heights in 2019. However is Saint Laurent late to the party with this release? Has the logo love reached its peak?
Saint Laurent’s monogram canvas print features mini ‘YSL’ logos inside diamond shapes alternating between upside down and rightsize up. The bags are made of 100% cotton and trimmed in leather, though it’s unclear if the canvas is coated (similar to Louis Vuitton’s coated canvas), as we’ve yet to see these bags in person. Currently, the logo canvas is available in three shapes, a classic camera bag, a bucket bag, and a saddle bag. Do you love the logo print or would you leave it?
