The Muse Two Artisanal has an unexpected story. It's got a couple of the YSL trademarks we've come to rely on, like an expensive price tag and limited availability, but the material used caught our attention. Instead of the buttery leather we're used to, the purse is made of recycled plastic bags and is hand-crafted by artisanal women in Burkina Faso.
We called YSL and turns out there are only 13 slated for sale on the U.S. e-commerce site -- our guess is that they don't expect it to be a popular item. But we say, why buy one YSL eco-chic bag for $1,720 when you could buy 114 of Anya's bags, and hand them out to all your friends, and friends' friends? Now that's environmentally "friendly."
What do you think of the bag?
