Are you considering to make your first ever Saint Laurent (YSL) purchase?
Why do I believe the Uptown Clutch is a great buy?
First of all, the size. The dimensions are: 27.0 x 16.0 x 2.0 CM or 10.5 x 6.2 x 0.8 INCHES. Uptown Clutch would easily fit a larger-sized iPhone, a card holder, a lipstick and few other small essentials, just as any other designer mini bag would.
Another reason, why I believe the Uptown Pouch Clutch is a great score, is its price. Can you name a designer clutch bag that costs less than $500? Even Louis Vuitton’s pouches retail for way more.
Another important thing to highlight is that the Uptown Clutch comes in several leather finishes. You can pick it up in either Shiny Smooth, Crocodile-Look or Grain de Poudre Embossed leather.
Moreover, as I have seen both on Instagram and on Youtube, many wear the Uptown Clutch with a chain. This way it transforms from a clutch to a shoulder bag. Thus, there are numerous posibilities when it comes to using it.
It’s always great to have the versatility when it comes to designer accessories. The Uptown Pouch has that. I think that it would transition beautifully from day to evening. One could wear it as a shoulder bag during the day and as a clutch during the evening.
Where to buy it?
Due to a lot of social media attention towards the item, Uptown Pouch tends to be pretty much always sold out everythere online, including the YSL website. It’s also quite difficult to score at the Saint Laurent boutiques. What I’d recommend doing, if you’d like to buy one for youself, is to frequently check out websites of luxury retailers carrying the item. I’ve seen it at Net-a-Porter, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and MyTheresa.
