What Size Did You Buy?

Whenever purchasing any designer piece, I believe that you should pick something that makes the most sense for your lifestyle and personal needs. For me, the medium size hits it spot on. It measures 11.2 in x 7.9 in x 2.4 in. I love this size because it’s spacious enough to accommodate my daily must-haves, plus a little more, without feeling cumbersome. It’s lightweight and comfortable enough to carry throughout the day, whether I’m running errands or meeting up with friends. The medium size truly offers that versatile touch I look for in an everyday bag.

That said, this bag is available in a smaller size, measuring 8.7 in x 5.7 in x 2.4 in. This compact version might be better suited for evening events or when you want to travel light with the bare essentials. I can see how it would make an elegant addition to an outfit or a chic crossbody. But, ultimately, the medium size aligns best with my lifestyle, offering the space I need without sacrificing style or comfort.

How’s The Functionality / How Useful Is It For Everyday?

The Saint Laurent Kate Reversible Bag is seriously on another level in terms of functionality! Versatility is the name of the game here. It’s like having three bags in one! Whether I’m in the mood for a chic shoulder bag, a hands-free crossbody, or a sleek clutch for a night out, this bag adapts flawlessly to every situation. It’s one of those special pieces that allow you to transition from daytime tasks to evening occasions without missing a beat.

The reversible feature is also brilliant, giving it a weatherproof element. I find myself gravitating towards the suede side, but knowing I can quickly switch to the leather side is a huge bonus. When the weather takes an unexpected turn, having that quick switch option can save the day (and your bag) when it rains or snows.

Is It Structured or Slouchy?

The beauty of this bag lies in its softer silhouette. It has an air of elegance that’s distinct from the classic Saint Laurent Kate Flap bag, which leans more towards a structured profile. The Kate Reversible Bag embraces a slightly more relaxed vibe. However, don’t let the softer silhouette fool you. With a little help from a trusty purse organizer (HERE – just $25), this bag holds onto its shape with poise. I also love this organizer as it adds extra protection to the interior – the black slender medium size is what I personally use.

Is It A Classic Or Trendy Piece?

The Saint Laurent Kate Reversible Bag easily falls into the category of a true classic. The luxe details from the gold hardware to the chain strap will never go out of style. And much like the beloved classic Kate that’s held its allure over the years, this Reversible Bag holds the same captivating power. It truly brings together the best of two worlds: the enduring charm of a classic and the modern edge that keeps things exciting. It’s something I know I can always rely on to enhance my style no matter the season or trend.

Is It Worth The Investment?

Without a doubt, the Saint Laurent Reversible Bag is an investment that’s worth your consideration. With its reversible design, you’re essentially scoring two stunning looks with the iconic gold YSL logo gracing both sides. The removable chain also means you can wear the bag in multiple ways.

In case you’re wondering about the durability of the reversible feature, I haven’t noticed any marks or signs of wear so far and as long as you treat the suede side like any other suede bag, I’m confident it will continue to look amazing. Overall, this bag is an icon in the world of designer accessories. I love it so much that I now have two of them! It’s the embodiment of luxury, versatility, and style, all bundled into one. You can grab yours today at Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Net-A-Porter, Neiman Marcus or MyTheresa!
