The super stylish everyday bag: Saint Laurent Sac de Jour

The iconic Saint Laurent Sac de Jour in Black with an embossed golden Saint Laurent signature is an excellent option if you’re looking to invest in a premium quality, minimalist bag with a modern edge.

Not only is this 100% calf leather everyday bag the perfect size for dashing from one meeting to the next, the size and style of this bag will take you from a business brunch straight through to cocktails in an instant.

The shape is completely timeless and looks effortlessly subtle whilst also adding the perfect finishing touch to any look. We can imagine this bag would look equally amazing with a tailored suit and heels as it would with a pair of skinny jeans, boots and a leather jacket at the weekend.

The structured accordion sides makes this style super spacious, for all your everyday essentials such as a laptop, diary and other must haves. What is also so clever about this bag is the way the sides have compression tabs so it can look even more compact if you need to carry less too.

If you’re looking to invest in a preloved handbag that will most definitely stand the test of time, this is one of our ultimate top picks to take you from day to evening.

The Rise of the Preloved Market

Lilac Blue London has long been aware of the virtue of buying your bag “second hand” or “preloved” –  the term we prefer.  Buying a preloved bag is a great introduction to Hermes and it’s why we have two categories ~ GOOD AS NEW and VINTAGE/PRELOVED on our website devoted to them, there are some really beautiful bags there.

Lisa Armstrong, head of fashion at The Telegraph has written an interesting and informative article on the growth of the preloved market in luxury handbags – read it in full here:
