What do you get when you combine a striking red color, all natural calfskin, strong metal buckles, and a design that will make other ladies swoon? You get one of the more interesting 2018 season handbags, the Saint Laurent Bellechasse.
If anything has marked the modern Saint Laurent bags, it’s their minimalism. Each handbag from the current season works well with any outfit, in any setting. Bellechasse is by no means different. It might not look as cute or sophisticated as some of the more popular Saint Laurent bags, but it’s by no means bad-looking. The solid wine red color of its calfskin leather makes it stand out and appear “classical” in its look. You can carry this bag when going to work or when you’re partying on long Saturday nights. It’s a bag for all events.
Let’s talk more about its design. Many other Saint Laurent bags are rectangular, but Bellechasse is one of those rare bags with solid, almost sharp edges. They make this bag look more professional than entertaining, but that’s to its credit. The front of the bag has a clasp with the famous Saint Laurent Paris signature engraved on it.
The wine red flap is hiding a lovely interior. It has two larger compartments and a smaller pocket on the inside of one of them. The front side also holds another, smaller compartment, giving you plenty of room to stash away multiple things.
Naturally, the bag has a leather strap long enough for both crossbody and shoulder carrying. You can both adjust and detach it, depending on how comfortable you feel. Bellechasse also has a handle, making it look like a small, stylish briefcase.
