The slouchy shape of Saint Laurent’s Niki bag makes it the top choice for high-low style. It can be worn with casual and more put-together outfits without ever looking out of place. The preferred finish is supple, ever-so-slightly distressed leather, which gives it a bit of a vintage feel. It also features an edgy chain-link strap, a foldover flap, and a tonal YSL emblem on the front.
In its signature form, the Niki is a happy medium: a roomy bag with more than enough space for your everyday necessities and more. But fans of its rock ’n’ roll aesthetic will be pleased to know it also comes in compact shoulder and large tote forms.
With the holiday season ahead, the Niki in metallic silver leather will bring a glitzy accent to your wardrobe, whether there are parties on the horizon or not. For a more subdued seasonal option, we love the Niki shoulder bag in crinkled deep red leather, a practical choice that’s guaranteed to stand the test of time.
