It’s no secret that Saint Laurent has become one of my favorite handbag brands over the past few years. My last purchase was the Shearling Saddle Bag over winter, which was right around the same time the Solferino bag caught my eye. There was just something about the sleek design and iconic logo combination that kept me coming back for more. Fast forward a few months and the bag has made its way into my designer collection. I’ve only carried it a few times but have gotten so many questions about it from you guys. I have to say that I’ve been loving how it adds polish to everything. The box-like shape with the supersized logo closure just feels so ladylike and enduring. I can see it remaining relevant ten or even twenty years from now.
Keep scrolling for my honest review of the Saint Laurent Solferino Handbag and my answers to your most frequently asked questions…
What Size Is Best? How Much Can It Hold?
The Saint Laurent Solferino Handbag comes in two sizes, medium and small. However, both are quite compact. The small measures 7.4″ x 5.1″ x 2″ while the medium is 9″ x 6.2″ x 2.3″. Size is obviously a very personal choice and I opted for the small one because I preferred how it looked against my petite frame.
Both sizes feature a main compartment with a card slot and small pocket, which means they don’t hold much. That being said, this is the type of bag I’d carry when I don’t need more than my phone, keys and a few cards.
Does It Scratch Easily?
The Saint Laurent Solferino Handbag is constructed of buttery, smooth leather that’s delicate, but it’s held up pretty well so far. Again, I’ve only carried my bag a few times so far and haven’t had any issues with scuffs, scratches or dings. It’s going to be one of my staples this fall, so I can check back in on this question!
Where To Buy It?
This bag can be purchased at your local Saint Laurent store – or at almost all luxury retailers. Most of you probably know that I buy most of my designer bags from luxury retailers, such as Nordstrom, Net-a-Porter, SSENSE, and MyTheresa. This bag is currently in stock at all those places. However, I purchased this particular bag from Farfetch. The team at Farfetch is kind enough to offer my readers 10% off Saint Laurent handbags, including the Solferino. You can use the code MINE10 at checkout! It comes in a bunch of different colors, but I have the Natural Tan one.
Is It Worth The Price? Would I Buy It Again?
The Saint Laurent Solferino Handbag has a pared-back, straightforward design that makes it easy to wear day or night. It might be small but definitely packs a punch and would elevate any outfit to new heights. With that in mind, I do think this bag is 100% worth the money as it can be worn through any season and for any occasion.
