Wardrobe Hero: Kate Bag by Saint Laurent

Imagine the idea of having to carry a bag in one hand while holding a beverage in the other and ultimately having no hands free in case you need to take a call or greet someone. With get-togethers, work events and nights out on the town back on the table, it’s likely that you’re thinking that lugging around a top-handle or even a clutch in your hand is highly inconvenient.

Of course, the answer to your woes is a sling bag. But are all sling bags created equal? There are parameters of a winning candidate, and to find one that meets them all can be quite a challenge. Enter: the Saint Laurent Kate bag.

A fuss-free alternative to all the totes, bucket bags and clutches in your wardrobe - we’re positioning the Kate bag as the ultimate bag that complements your social calendar unlike any other. For daytime events that seem to run seamlessly into the evening, or nights that turn into day - the understated shoulder bag does the job while embodying the elegant lines and minimalistic aesthetic that Saint Laurent is famous for.
Fitted with the classic Saint Laurent monogram, the Kate is one of the most consistently popular bags out there owing to its timeless style, quality and function. With one main compartment roomy enough to hold all your going-out essentials (lipstick, compact and sanitiser) and one flat pocket that can hold your credit cards and a valet ticket, it’s literally all you need for the season of re-emergence.

The magnetic snap closure secures your all belongings in a split second when you put down the  flap, while the chain strap adds just the right amount of drama to your outfit. Take cues from Hailey Baldwin Bieber, Kim Kardashian West, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley among the many celebs who have been seen sporting the Kate bag to complete their outfits.
