YSL iCare Bag Dimensions / What Fits Inside
Currently, the YSL iCare maxi bag is available in one size. This maxi-sized shopper bag features a toggle closure and has one large main compartment. However, the maxi tote also benefits from the removable zipped pouch for additional organization and security.
The Saint Laurent iCare maxi bag is most definitely a maxi-sized bag! The dimensions of this shopping tote are 22.8 x 16.9 x 3.1 inches; which makes it perfectly suited to everyday use as well as travel. As the name suggests, the bag is incredibly roomy in size, and can therefore hold all of your daily essentials, and anything else you may ever need, and more!
The toggle closure enables you to wear the bag in two different ways; you can wear the bag with the sides closed, or fully open – this alters the silhouette of the bag itself. As the shopping tote is crafted entirely from incredibly soft quilted lambskin, you can find that the bag expands naturally. Although it may be hard to find your essentials inside such a vast shopping tote, the ever-so-handy matching quilted pouch can help you to organise your contents. This equally beautiful zipped pouch is removable and attaches to the main bag with a metal chain toggle.
How to style the YSL iCare Maxi Bag
The beauty of the YSL iCare maxi bag is that although it is an incredibly luxurious piece, it is the perfect shopper tote for everyday use.
The Saint Laurent iCare suits a laid-back look perfectly and looks amazing with a simple white t-shirt and a pair of denim jeans for an off-duty yet polished look. Equally the bag works perfectly with a sophisticated workwear look and can elevate any little black dress; the perfect handbag companion for your daily work commute!
Since its initial release, the Saint Laurent iCare maxi has been worn by countless celebrities. All have styled the oversized tote in their own personal way, which shows just how truly versatile the iCare tote is. Worn by the likes of Angelina Jolie, Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and YSL brand ambassador Zoë Kravitz, the Saint Laurent Icare is a firm favourite. Now that’s quite some celebrity endorsement!

Where to buy the YSL iCare Bag
The Saint Laurent iCare shopper bag is available to purchase directly from the YSL website, as well as in boutiques. Currently, due to its sheer popularity, it is quite hard to get your hands on!
As expected, due to the vast amount of celebrity endorsement prior to its release, the iCare maxi sold out almost immediately. The bag is currently still available for pre-order from the online Saint Laurent website. However, if you are feeling lucky, it may be worth visiting your local Saint Laurent boutique to try and score this year’s hottest oversized bag!
Alternatively, looking at the pre-loved market is a great option. Buying pre-loved will not only allow you to save a bit of money (compared to buying a brand-new bag), but you might be able to find older styles that are no longer sold in boutiques – and these bags might be cheaper and more unique (since they are not as in-demand as some of the classic models).
If you’re thinking of buying a YSL bag, you might be wondering if they hold their value well. Find out everything you need to know in the next blog, do Saint Laurent bags go up in value here.
