As much as we fancy extra small bags that could barely fit our phone and a single lipstick, we have to admit that when it comes to practicality, nothing beats a roomy tote. Whether you're headed to the office for business or to the airport for leisure, you can't go wrong with an oversized bag that could basically fit your entire life. Okay, we're exaggerating, but the point is: You're sure to love Saint Laurent's Icare maxi shopper, aka the cool new It bag celebs are obsessed with in a big way—and we mean that literally.
What Is the Saint Laurent Icare Tote?
We'll always have a special place in our hearts for the classic leather tote, but Saint Laurent's version comes in quilted lambskin leather that boasts of the French maison's signature YSL brass logo plate, which immediately screams "I'm not your average oversized bag."
The maxi shopping bag, aka the latest masterpiece of the house's creative director Anthony Vaccarello, can be worn wide or with closed sides—depending on the vibe that you're going for! Zoë Kravitz and Hailey Bieber seem to particularly love teaming their Icare tote with no-nonsense basics for their street style OOTDs. Think black sunglasses, LBD, and knee-high boots; or, if you're more the laidback kind, take the casual route like The Batman star did with blue denim jeans and call it a day. They're proof that, even with an off-duty 'fit, the Icare tote will bring in that cool-girl energy you need to elevate your look.
Local Celebrities Spotted Wearing the Saint Laurent Icare Tote
Saint Laurent's Icare tote has been spotted on the likes of Sydney Sweeney, Miley Cyrus, and a growing number of international celebs and influencers, but of course, count on the Philippines' most stylish to have a trained eye for the most covetable It bags to don ahead of everyone else. You've guessed it—we're talking about the perpetually chic Heart Evangelista and Bela Padilla!
1. Bela Padilla
We first spotted the Icare tote on Bela, who went on a coffee run in Paris in a cozy yet chic 'fit comprised of loose trousers, Converse sneakers, a classic trench coat, and Saint Laurent's ultra-oversized bag that perfectly complimented her travel-friendly look.
2. Heart Evangelista
Heart's version of a dressed-down look naturally still features a stylish arm candy. But instead of the mini bags she sported at Paris Fashion Week, she opted for the equally chic Icare oversized tote to accompany her jeans, black tank top, and flats combo on a laidback day.
How Much Is the Saint Laurent Icare Tote?
Finally convinced that you need to own one, too? FYI, Saint Laurent's Icare maxi shopping bag retails for $4,400 on Saint Laurent's official website and is currently available for pre-order.
That said, if you're in a rush and want to get your hands on this cool new It bag as soon as possible, you'd be glad to know that one of Heart's go-to personal shoppers, @eurobrands4less on Instagram, also listed it on his page for those who are interested.
