The hottest bag to be seen with right now has to be Hedi Slimane's first it bag, the Saint Laurent duffle. We love it so much we put it the number one spot in the Fashion Charts in this week's issue. Gwynny was the first star to be spotted with the slate grey version swinging from her arm at LAX airport back in August. Skip forward six months or so and the leather loveliness has been carried about by everyone from Beyoncé to Kate Moss.
La Moss could well be Hedi Slimane's number one fan, as she has worn a fringed suede SL jacket, the Autumn 2013 sheer body suit and a Saint Laurent lace jacket and cigarette pants. She loves the clothes, yes, but Mossy has a definite soft spot for Hedi's accessories. As she has been spotted with the yummy duffel bag on several occasions, showing that the bag is one of the most versatile handbags around. She has paired her black Duffle 12 with a traffic stopping blue fur, a sleek black tuxedo and cigarette pants and a leopard coat and trilby.
The bag is clean and classic, so won't date like some of the notorious it bags of the early 2000s. It's simplicity means that it works with different styles, as the bag has been worn by French hipster Lou Doillon, glossy super Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, pop royalty Beyoncé and grungy style icon Sky Ferreira.
Bey wore her Saint Laurent duffle to sit courtside with her hubby Jay, with a pair of neon heels and a look-at-me blazer. While model Hanne Gaby wore hers with a black maxi and cream shirt to wander the Tuileries in between shows at Paris Fashion Week. The Laurent bag is the ultimate hunk of leather to achieve the model off-duty look.
The duffle is available in three sizes in black, grey, off-white, blue, red and pink. But the most popular colour by far is black, followed closely behind by the grey version. If you have a spare £1,545 lying around head to ysl.com and place your order.
But if you can't drop a grand or two on a bag just yet, then take a look in the gallery above and spend the next ten minutes swooning at one of the most beautiful bags you'll see this season. Because window shopping can be fun too, right?
