It was Saint Laurent’s SS20 runway show when we first laid eyes on the now-iconic Kaia cross-body bag – the style designed by Anthony Vaccarello and named after supermodel Kaia Gerber. Fast forward to SS21, and the simple satchel-like shape is back for the new season. The curved leather structure remains the same with the house’s signature YSL plaque taking centre stage on the front. Drape it over tailoring, as intended.
One of the most resounding names in fashion, Yves Saint Laurent was the first couture house to introduce the concept of luxury ready to wear. Today, the iconic label is fronted by Anthony Vaccarello, who aims to explore Saint Laurent’s early years through his creations. Constantly featured in every major magazine, from Vogue to Elle.
