Styled by Yamine Daaboul / Photography by David Newton
In the first of Wylde’s occasional series devoted to items of exquisite luxury, we turn our attention to Saint Laurent’s pretty-much-perfect Cabas Uptown bag; an object that exudes discreet, handmade luxe from every stitch, strap and fixture. Originating in Italy, the undeniable home of high-end leather goods, this tote is an all-purpose status symbol that has classic written all over its butter-soft hide.
