- My Review of the Fake YSL Bag
I previously wrote about the Balenciaga replica bag, which is the most iconic fashion bag around 10 to 15 years ago. Today I’d like to review another CLASSIC bag: Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Nano. This piece of timeless style has been around since 2013 (the year it was created), making it a great option for any outfit.
Whether it’s the timeless design, versatile nature, or luxurious texture of the leather, there’s no denying that this is an iconic and desirable piece. Let’s dive into my review and take a closer look at whether this YSL bag replica meets the standards.
It all started back in 2013 when Hedi Slimane took over Saint Laurent. He created this bag, the Sac de Jour, which is French for Bag of the Day.
Slimane got a lot of grief from people who thought it was nothing more than a knockoff of the Hermes Birkin, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming YSL’s most popular piece since then. The sleek lines and classic look are still just as appealing years later!
The bag is currently available in four sizes and a variety of colors and leather:
Sizes – From small to large, you have Nano, Baby, Small, and Medium to choose from.
Colors – Black, storm, brick, and dark beige are always on trend. Or if you’re feeling bolder try something bright – like yellow, red, pink, or purple.
Leather – The Sac de Jour comes in 2 styles: the rigid version is typically made of smooth calfskin leather and the supple version is crafted with grained calfskin leather. Both are super scratch-resistant and cinch to clean.
For special or seasonal editions, grab it in shearling, python, eel, or even crocodile.
I wanted an everyday bag & I was obsessed with mini bags.
I bought the Sac De Jour Nano replica bag as an everyday bag. I got the smallest size because I am really into mini versions of every bag by every designer at the moment – and I’m not sure if this obsession will fade because the more minis I buy the more addicted I become.
Anyways I digress – back to the YSL Sac De Jour Nano … this bag is a beaut and I believe it can really help dress up any outfit because it has a flair of sophistication. I would not suggest you get the Nano size unless you have a light load to carry with you daily – but the good news is the bag comes in larger sizes as well so if you love the look you can easily just purchase a larger size!
The leather of this fake YSL is grained calfskin in the color black, like the authentic one. This is the first thing you should check when receiving a replica bag and will be the biggest pointer as to whether the bag is a piece of junk or a quality replica.
The leather looks and feels perfect, it doesn’t have any scratches or other defects. I also don’t smell anything weird or plastic.
From the side, the accordion side pleats are also looking good. And they do give an additional layer of interest and enhanced the overall design.
The hardware is nice and a bit heavy. I chose the silver-toned one, and there is another light bronze-toned one. The authentic version of the bag comes with oxidized nickel hardware, and the replica version I received is on par with this.
The little lock looks cute, although I don’t really know how to use it (I just leave it there). As far as I know, no one knows the purpose of the lock. LOL
The feet are also nicely made and high-quality. If you purchase a replica bag and the hardware seems uber light or flimsy, chances are you may have a bad replica, however, hardware weight does vary by brand and model (e.g. some Louis Vuitton bags have lighter hardware than others).
Handle & Shoulder straps
The top handles and shoulder straps are strong and sturdy. The shoulder straps are removable and adjustable, which is quite convenient. I like to carry the bag both ways, either way, it goes well with the outfit.
The inner lining of the Saint Laurent replica is made from the same calfskin leather as the exterior of the bag, the only exception being that the interior leather is smooth as opposed to the grained side.
From the overall look to the small details, this fake YSL Bag has done a great job in terms of accuracy. The size is 8.6 X 7 X 4.1 inches, which is accurate from the official website. The stitching is meticulous and smooth.
The stamping is clean and neat, and there is no spillage like some other replica bags.
The packaging also comes with an authentication card to match the standards.
OVERALL RATING: 9.7/10
This knock off YSL bag hits every mark of quality I have assessed personally. The ONLY 2 flaws that I can outline are 1) the bag was a bit bent which is a result of the shipping process; 2) the dust bag’s quality wasn’t perfect. The bag got a bit bent on route to me so I have to fill the interior with plastic to help keep its shape. However, luckily this is a fixable issue so I’m not super worried about it.
