    Yves Saint Laurent by Tom Ford Black Leather & Sterling Silver Horn Handle Mombasa Bag
    Tom Ford reinvigorated Gucci during his time as Creative Director, and this bag showcases a part of that transformation. This bag is unique, and perfect for showing off at evening events.

This bag features a black leather strap that runs around the circumference of the body, attached by black leather loops, and is connected to the truly distinguished feature, the handle.

After opening the magnetic clasp closure, a black suede interior is revealed featuring one zip pocket with a black leather zipper pull.
    Dimensions: 14" Width x 9" Height x 1" Depth, 7.5" Shoulder Drop
