Yves Saint Laurent Gold Bronze Sequin Mombasa Bag YSL New
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 collectable archival YSL design.
This beautiful Mombasa bag features a mesmerizing pattern of overlapping gold and bronze half-circles. Made up of glittering square sequins, the half circles are reminiscent of waves or fish scales and lend this bag a pleasing visual movement of its own. Finished with a rich brown satin trim and 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.
