Reminiscing of a time when travel was considered a luxury, luggages was considered just as important as the the journey itself.
Reliving those halcyon days, Saint Laurent new design wishes to revive the house’s iconic 1961 interlocking YSL Logo in coated cotton canvas, as seen on YSL Classic Toile Monogram Collection. The draw? Simple, classic functionality and eternal elegance.
Venturing into the ever expanding luxury good lines, it was only a matter of time until Saint Laurent joined the party, and with the release of the “Toile Monogram” collection, it finally makes its iconic mark on the luggage market. This first outlook at the collection introduces Hedi Slimane’s new house signature, developed back in 2013. Inspired by the iconoclastic YSL logo designed by the talented artist Cassandre for Yves Saint Laurent back in 1961, and also from a link from the Art deco ‘Babylone’ chain bracelet, the pattern Toile places itself within the heritage approach of the Couture House.
A Mark of Style, Fashion and Luxury
The logo has been miniaturized and repeated across the face of an array of duffles, totes, briefcases, and garment bags, creating a pattern that resembles raised texture. The Saint Laurent signature is also embossed in gold lettering on each piece, bringing cohesion to the 30-piece collection. In addition to this, Slimane appointed the luggage with a coated canvas that lends it a leathery sheen.
Destined for the world’s chicest hotel lobbies, the ‘Toile Monogram’ range is entirely made in Italy and manufactured to the highest standards of quality befitting the high-end luxury market. A mark of style, fashion and luxury, the range has a prestige feel to it that intertwines functionality with impeccable design style. For those of you who are seeking that extra special touch, personalised initials can be stamped in select Saint Laurent stores.
