a small black velvet mombasa with silver crystal encrusted horn
I think u don't want to miss this one too, it looks gorgeous in real, I am considering the red one for my wife & it will be her 2nd one, I love watching the mombasa on my wife's shoulder, it gives her a mystrious touch
I l ove the matt gold hardware & the thick royal hardware motif , so royal & chic.
i think that the Mombasa is the best bag designed in the new century, love its prpotion & power, it is an investment & i can feel that it can stand 10 or maybe 20 more years, just unlike the dior's saddle.

you should see them in real they are so luxuriuos, love them ,
this one is a mini size, it is small that it can't be hanged on ur shoulders, it is just to be handled on ur hand.
and it costs 1000$, which is quite expensive for a mini size, but that is due to the gorgeous crest.
I think Stefano Pilati did a great job on this line.

I love it, so far Pilati has two things that I love. I love the crest on the white Mombasa though Im scared he may ruin it by choosing horrid color combinations which he is known for.

I want a crest so I can put it on a blazer or something...Oooo they should make a blazer with that crest on the back but the crest should be HUGE, almost taking up the whole back. That would be expensive but gorgeous.

Love the idea DIORLING, a huge crest on the back of a leather or deep dark velvet blazer, I can see in front of me it right now, very very YSL , very poweful brilliant diroling.

have anyone seen this mombasa in the YSL boutiques? if not please do & post ur impression...I'll be waiting

when I saw it I kept 'wowing' the whole day
