How to Care for Your Saint Laurent Handbag
When you invest in a designer handbag like a Saint Laurent bag, taking care of it is essential. You want it to last year after year looking new and you also want it to hold its value should you ever decide to re-sell for a newer model. Here, see our top tips on how best to care for your brand-new Saint Laurent handbag.
· Protect from day one. You want the leather of your bag to stay smooth and stain-free no matter how often you use your bag. And the best way to protect a bag from the daily risks of spillages and water splashes is to invest in a leather or suede protection treatment. Apply this treatment before you use the bag and regularly after to make sure that a small accident doesn’t ruin your new collector’s item.
· Store your bag properly. Think about where you’ll keep and store your bag on the days that you don’t use it. We suggest storing away from other accessories (like dirty shoes!) and in a cool and dark place, away from direct sunlight. Using the dust bag you get in the box with the bag is also a great idea. Lastly, use fillers – like bubble wrap or balled paper – to fill out your bag while it’s in storage. This helps to maintain its shape no matter how long it’s packed away for.
· Fix it up when it needs it! Sounds simple but just nipping your bag into the professionals to fix any small wear and tear early will help you to avoid any serious or more long-lasting damage later.

Which are the most timeless Saint Laurent bags?
Because fashion is so subjective, this is a difficult one. The brand exudes a classic style, so you could never go wrong when selecting a shape that will stay in style. However, for particularly classic styles, stick to smooth black leather and opt for a top handle/tote leather bag or a signature shoulder bag.
