The Saint Laurent Loulou bag has quickly earned classic status since its launch. The quilted design, complete with a YSL monogram closure, has been released in a number of new colours and materials – as well as a few new bag dimensions. In two minds about which Saint Laurent shoulder bag size to get? Consider this your practical Loulou bag size comparison guide (everyday tech included). Find out which essentials you can fit inside each style below.
THE TOY LOULOU BAG SIZE GUIDE
The smallest iteration of Saint Laurent’s Loulou, the Toy comes with a fully adjustable leather strap that can be removed, allowing the bag to be used as a clutch. Though it’s compact in size, it has space for the necessities. As a guide, you can comfortably fit a lipstick, concealer, cardholder and the iPhone 11 in the two central compartments – plus, it has a little extra room in the secure zip-fastened internal pocket for loose cards and change.

THE SMALL LOULOU BAG SIZE GUIDE
Unlike the Toy, the Small has a chain strap that can be worn as a two-handle design or adjusted to become a single cross-body shoulder strap. In addition to what can be held within a Toy, the Small can fit a notebook, small purse and wider phone – the iPhone 11 Pro, for instance, fits comfortably. It’s a good everyday bag if you tend to pack light.

THE MEDIUM LOULOU BAG SIZE GUIDE
Torn between the Small and Medium? In terms of design, they’re relatively similar – they have the same chain strap and two central compartments separated with a zip-through pocket – but the medium has a little more room for the practicalities. It can hold all of the pieces that the small can, as well as a compact umbrella, large purse, tablet and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

THE LARGE LOULOU BAG SIZE GUIDE
For those who appreciate personal space, there’s the Large. The roomy interior comfortably fits all of the essentials above, as well as an iPad or laptop – note that the 13” Macbook fits in either central compartment. Consider the large Loulou your commuter-friendly option.
