The debut of Yves Saint Laurent in 1962 shook up the fashion scene at the time. Since then YSL expanded beyond couture clothing and now offers highly sought after accessories, including handbags.

Any luxury lover will attest to the exquisite craftmanship, luxury materials, and infamous branding associated with YSL handbags. It is no secret that purchasing an authentic bag is nothing short of a big investment, so I have put together a list of the 10 least expensive bags.

It is important to note that there are several sources you can purchase YSL bags from. This list includes just two reputable retailers, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

Also note, I have tried to narrow this list down to items classified as “handbags”. YSL offers a wide array of bags in all sizes, including mini bags, wallets (on a chain), wristlets, cosmetic bags, and other compact options. These miniature sized bags are not included in this post. These are worth mentioning here because many of the compact sizes are cheaper than what I’ve listed here – you just won’t be able to carry much in them!


10 Cheapest YSL Bags

1. YSL Basket Raffia Tote Bag $1,1oo

Cheapest YSL BagsShop at Neiman Marcus

The black raffia tote bag is an essential summer accessory and perfect for vacation. Its body is woven raffia and accented with calf leather straps and removeable logo tag.

Of all the cheapest YSL bags on this list, this is the least expensive and also one of the largest, which makes it a great deal!

TIP: The removable logo tag can be taken off in winter months and placed on this under $20 bag to make your investment stretch further. How fun is that! Since this bag does not have a zipper, I would also recommend a tote insert for organization.

2. YSL Small Basket Raffia Tote $1,350

Shop at Neiman Marcus

This natural color raffia tote is another great option for Summer. It is slightly smaller than the black tote above but is still a decent size tote! While the bag has an open top, it can be secured with the magnetic logo strap.


3. Calfskin Tote Bag $1,450

SHOP on Neiman Marcus

If you’re looking for an everyday designer bag, there is no better choice than the YSL calfskin tote bag. A leather tote bag in six gorgeous color options. Complete with a foil stamped logo at the top center, removable interior zip pouch, and a removable leather covered logo charm strap. This bag has a lot to offer!

You don’t see many leather tote bags from other luxury brands at this price.

4. Coeur Crossbody Bag $1,450

Cheapest YSL Bags

This leather framed crossbody from YSL is a heart shaped, coated canvas, structured bag with an embossed YSL monogram. It features gold toned hardware, adjustable straps, zipper closure, and a back exterior pocket.

This is a great everyday bag perfect for carrying around all of your essentials.

5. City Nylon Crossbody Camera Bag $1,490

This sleek nylon bag is a must for anyone with an active lifestyle! The charming Saint Laurent logo sits above two zippered exterior pockets. You’ll find another snap closure pock on the back exterior and an adjustable strap. There is SO MUCH to love about this bag. Would make a chic accessory for anyone on-the-go!

6. Mini Lou Quilted Leather Camera Bag $1,550

Cheapest YSL BagsShop at Nordstrom

One of the most iconic crossbody YSL bags is the quilted camera bag. This version measures 7 1/4″W x 4 1/2″H x 2 1/2″D and is available in five colors.

The quilted chevron and centered logo is accented by a chain strap and bold tassel at one side. This bag is perfect for a night out and can even accent a any basic casual outfit.

7. Medium Lou Camera Bag in Suede & Canvas $1,590

Shop Nordstrom Suede  //  Canvas Stripe

Another camera style crossbody, this suede and canvas style crossbody is the cheapest MEDIUM LOU YSL BAGS I could find.

Unlike the previous bag, this medium size suede measure about 8 1/2″W x 6 1/2″H x 3″D, which is quite a bit extra space for a little extra money. Either of these bags would transition well throughout all 4 seasons.

8. Lou Medium YSL Camera Bag in Leather $1,690

Cheapest YSL BagsShop at Neiman Marcus

By far one of one of the best selling YSL bags is the medium size quilted calfskin crossbody. We’ve all seen this bag before. This crossbody is truly stylish and versatile so it can be carried casually or for formal events for years to come.

9. Le 5 A 7 North-South Leather Shoulder Bag $1,690

Shop at Neiman Marcus

Looking for a unique spin on the typical crossbody bag? This vertical bag might be the one for you!

This bag gives vintage, yet modern, vibes with its clean vertical lines. The open top design can be secured with the long magnetic logo strap.

10. Small Kaia Suede Satchel $1,690

Cheapest YSL Bags

Shop at Nordstrom

This bag is unlike any other on this list with a soft calfskin suede in a gorgeous olive hue. The gold toned logo really pops against this color. The flap top satchel style crossbody embodies everything there is to love about the luxurious YSL bags.
