Formally established as a brand in 1961, Yves Saint Laurent is one of the most prized fashion labels in the entire world. From Paris, this company was quick to establish itself within the world of high-fashion and all-things haute. From shirts and hats to shoes and jewelry, Yves Saint Laurent produces a great range of luxury fashion products. But like many other leading fashion labels, their handbags are often considered some of the brands finest work. They currently sell over 100 differnt handbags that come in many different styles, and of course, they are all extremely expensive. We’re talking about a “cheap” bag that costs over $500 dollars, at least. So what do they have to offer at the high-end of things? Here we take a look at five of their most expensive handbags that they currently sell.
