YSL Mombasa Ostrich Leather Bag Limited Edition, 2000s Yves Saint Laurent


From the Tom Ford era at YSL, the Mombasa was the coveted iconic it bag of the early 2000s. Advertised as the must-have spring accessory in the New York Times, the Mombasa sold out as soon as it hit stores in 2001. Named after a seaport in Kenya, the bag’s signature is its horn handle, which gives it a tribal feel. “What bamboo is to Gucci, the horn is now to Saint Laurent,” said Tom Ford of the wildly successful bag. Reimagined season after season in different colors and fabrics ranging from velvet to python, the Mombasa continues to be a highly collectible archival YSL design.

This beautiful Mombasa bag is a special edition produced in limited quantity and designed in luxurious exotic Ostrich leather exclusively for Neiman Marcus, and retailed for $3695.  Finished with a top horn handle with gold-tone hardware, this exquisite version of the ever-chic Mombasa is the perfect fall accessory for a night on the town or a special occasion.
