YSL: Everyone's favourite for renting designer bags!
  Thursday Jan, 2017

The Luxe Collection by L's most rented and rocked brand is unsurprisngly (they're just to-die-for!) Saint Laurent! Even more specificially, it seems girls are just going crazy over our selection of the signature monogram clutches. The Luxe Collection by L has scoured the stores to handpick the most popular bags of the season in a range of colours from bright mangenta to vibrant gold and perfect shades of nude that are certain to compliment any weekend outfit - day or night.

In honour of this, here's a look into the history of the most popular bags available for hire from The Luxe Collection by L. 

Saint Laurent Paris also formerly known as Yves Saint Laurent or YSL is a French luxury fashion house founded by Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent in 1961. YSL is one of the world’s most prominent fashion houses and known for its modern and iconic pieces, designed for both men and women. 

In his biography, ‘Yves Saint Laurent: the battle for his life story’, Yves is dubed as “the century’s most notorious fashion designer”. A label whose three intertwined initials had revolutionized Parisian fashion in the 60's, scandalized the 70's, stamped themselves in the 80's and now embossing itself on pieces. 

In 2013, the creative director Hedi Slimane, changed the brands name from Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent Paris however chose to keep the iconic three letters in the logo. The change without the founder’s forename led to a backlash from fans who felt Slimane was doing great disfavor to the famous Parisian designer, creating a shirt to which read “Ain’t Laurent Without Yves” sold by influential retailers like Collette and Kitsune. 

Never the less, Slimane designed The Luxe Collection by L’s most rented and desired clutches, the YSL Monogram clutch range.

The first;
