YSL Lou Camera Bags - Mini Lou or Classic?

 

A classic camera bag shape, these styles both feature the chevron quilting and signature tassel detail as well a the YSL monogram.  We often have customer trying to decide between these two similar styles.

There are two main considerations when deciding between these styles, size and purpose. 

Size

The classic camera is substantially bigger, 4 cm longer and 5.5 cm taller but just 1 cm wider.  This means you will fit a long wallet in the camera bag plus sunglasses in the larger one quite easily.  The Mini Lou is still quite deep so  sunglasses in a soft case will work, but its not designed to fit a long wallet, there is an inbuilt credit holder on the interior so you won't need to carry a wallet.    If you need to carry a full size wallet or just need more space in your bag then this is the best option for you as the small won't be practical enough for your needs.

 

Purpose

Smaller bags by default tend to look dressier, the Lou Camera Mini shoulder bag is a compact option that will pair effortlessly with both weekend and evening looks.  The strap is also long enough to wear as crossbody.  High polish metal and a long metal chain strap also add to the glam factor. 

The Lou Camera on the other hand is a little more understated, finished in a a antique bronze or silver tone to underplay the YSL Monogram. The leather strap is more casual but adjustable so you can can shorted and lengthen easily.  The Tassel is also detachable as it serves as a decorative feature.
