Kylie Minogue and the YSL Roady



One of the most eagerly anticipated bags of 2009 was the YSL Roady. The other bag was the Alexander Wang Coco Duffle (both were carried by Mary-Kate Olsen months before they were even available for purchase). So what gives? Does the 'Roady' owe its success to a celebrity, or is the design really that great to warrant such interest? The answer lies somewhere in between.

Mary-Kate's "hidden chain" 'Roady' is a more intriguing version than Kylie Minogue's, but the 'Roady's' overall design exudes a casual elegance no matter what version you look at. The slouchy body is classed up by a sturdy nickel hardware-accented top handle, and the red textured leather exterior is gorgeous to say the least. I still prefer the plain black 'Roady' over all others, but I would sell my soul for an ocean blue lizard 'Roady'. Could you imagine how gorgeous that bag would be?

Enough of my fantasy bags. Let's cut to the chase. Kylie's bag (or an even more enticing electric blue version) is available for $1395 via ysl.com. Considering this bag is large enough to serve as an everyday bag or even a travel bag, I'd say the price is on target. You'll definitely get your money's worth.
