THE SAINT LAURENT KATE
One of Saint Laurent’s most recognisable bags, the Kate is a classic chain shoulder-strap bag. The wallet-like interior makes it perfectly suited for evening use as it has enough room to hold your essentials. The Kate also has a detachable chain strap, enabling you to carry it as a clutch.
The uber-classy Kate is the best Saint Laurent bag for evening. This solid flap bag feels very structured and upscale, with clean lines, sleek leather, and a chain strap that adds a hint of shine. Like other YSL bags, the front flap is decorated with the brand’s tri-letter logo, with the newest iterations also including a party-ready tassel.
Not much has been written about the Kate bag, but we’d guess it was named after Kate Moss, who was the face of the brand for a few campaigns in recent years.
The Saint Laurent Kate has been around for a while now, and it has a pretty popular following. It comes in two styles – one with tassel and one without. It's available in multiple sizes, from a small, medium, and large, as well as in a variety of leathers, such as smooth calfskin, caviar-like grained calfskin, lizard skin, paired with different hardware such as silver, antique brushed metal, and gold.
