R & Y Augousti Shagreen Minaudiere
R & Y Augousti Shagreen Minaudiere

R & Y Augousti is known for their furniture and decorative objects. The brand brings a eclectic touch to its line and now includes handbags and purses in exotic skins and natural materials. The furniture is quite appealing and can work in many different styles of homes, adding that funky touch to the contemporary room. But what are your thoughts on this handbag? The R & Y Augousti Minaudiere is a modern take on an evening bag, featuring a bronze body with red shagreen and an ostrich leg center inlay. The interior is lined in velvet and the clutch measures 8.25″ x 3.5″. With such an artistic feel, I expected this clutch to cost at least $1,000 more than it does. Sure it is a bag deal, but is it a fun piece you care to have? How do you feel about this whimsical piece? Buy through Barneys for $295.

    it looks like raw meat

    Odd……looks like it should be kept in a display case like a sculpture.

  • mette

    This is an interior design object and might fit in a funky modern environment.

  • Jahpson

    Looks like something off the Flintstones.

  • windowshopping

    it’s definitely young and fun.

    i’m not sure for the appropriate occasion.

    I don’t care for it, too funky for my taste. If anyone is interested in interesting clutch, I thought Anya Hindmarch is unique in an usable way.

    I love clutches…but I don´t like this shape… maybe for one special occasion.

  • Kaytey

    I don’t do exotic anything (I just find that texture creepy – I don’t do embossed leathers either) but if I did I’d totally go for this. I love funky. I’m young enough to pull it off so I may as well before it’s too late! Plus, the price is just so reasonable for something of the type.

  • pjh

    I LOVE this. It’s so funky and cool. It’s one of those bags though that I would buy and never use. If I were famous it’s the type of bag I would borrow and then give back after the one occasion I needed. Still, I love it and would totally use it! And that’s not TOOO bad of a price compared to some bags out there.

    I have this in black..and it is gorgeous and all, but cannot hold a damn thing! It is very very shallow.

  • MKO

    R&Y Augousti is by a husband and wife design team that also makes furniture, etc. so I think a lot of their bags also take after that sensibility. Each object is indeed precious and unique – I own a clutch from one of their first seasons and it looked vintagey from the beginning and gets better with age.

  • Mischa Barton

    looks tacky but it would definitely work as a furniture piece

  • heidi

    this bag looks like something you’d find at a garage sale

    it looks like something betty rubble would carry when she goes out clubbing with wilma flintstone.
