Aptly named the Opium, this minaudière from Saint Laurent recalls the heady opulence of the House’s signature perfume of the same name. Launched in 1977, the olfactory wonder took the world by storm for symbolising the mystique surrounding Yves Saint Laurent’s works. Thirty-nine years later, this clutch continues to embody the legendary oeuvre of its late founder. Constructed from sturdy plexiglass, the bag’s tubular body is sheathed in decadent gold with rope straps and exuberant leather tassels to take you through many sensuous Parisian nights.
The Opium minaudière is $2,490 and available at Saint Laurent Paris #01-27 ION Orchard (Tel: 6735 7378)
