Early last week, news emerged that Yves Saint Laurent will be handing out thousands of free bags come Saturday, Sept. 6. However, all the information seemed to be confusing and vague. Calls to their PR office were not helpful either. Rest asured folks, if YSL is giving out anything for free I am gong to get the information.
Thanks to YSL deep throat, I got undisclosed details to help you (and me) get a free tote bag. So, limited edition cotton totes bags, designed by Stefano Pilati, are being given away with a “Manifesto.” The "Manifesto" is a newspaper-style catalogue containing information about the collection .
Well, more than 5,000 of these catalogues and totes will be distributed for FREE throughout Paris, New York, London, Milan, Tokyo and Hong Kong. The big question is when and where. Apparently, one of the secret locations is infront of the uptown YSL store (855 Madison Avenue) from 1:45pm to 3:45pm. I imagine you would probably luck out at the 57th Street location too, however I could not confirm more information.
I can't imagine what these bags will fetch on Ebay. Good luck and please pick up an extra bag for me. I'll sadly be out of town for the weekend.
