Object of Desire: Saint Laurent Monogram All Over Carryall

By Kames Narayanan

Being discreet is not a Saint Laurent creed. The French maison holds no bars in, literally, wearing its identity. A case in point: the Saint Laurent Monogram All Over carryall. Printed across its brown canvas facade, within the perimeter of tiled diamond shapes, sit repetitions of the house’s monogram print. There is a timeworn quality to the satchel bag, in part owing to its rounded silhouette and the vintage appeal of the canvas it is crafted from. The sense of nostalgia it evokes is that of a lucky find from your mother’s wardrobe — perhaps, a treasure from the ’70s. The value of the over-the-shoulder bag is as pertinent today as it was in the past, and will be in the years ahead.
