Instagram’s photo-sharing platform allows us to take a glance at some of the most exceptional handbags straight from some of the world’s most elite handbag collectors. We follow these ladies avidly, and we can tell you their collections are breathtaking and mind-boggling, including plenty of exotics bags that we’ve rounded up for your viewing pleasure.

The women behind these Instagram accounts have some of the rarest exotic bags in the world–think people with not one, but two Himalayan Crocodile Birkins, and bags in eye-catching exotics from Chanel, Dior, Fendi and Givenchy. It’s not surprising that some of these ladies also own a few pairs of exotic Louboutins that we just couldn’t resist.

These exotic bags totally took my breath away, and I think many of you will have the same reaction. Check out all of our favorite Instagram snaps below; you can shop a great selection of similar exotic bags via Portero and Bluefly.

    No disrespect to the exotics lovers, but to me these bags look barbarian. I don’t like my bags to look like the animals they once were. Same goes with fur. It just reminds me that some poor being was killed JUST for the bag. The leather bags are usually from the meat industry, so that makes me feel better. Anyway, just my personal opinion.

    • Sara

      I couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • Guest

    My favorites are the metallic python Lady Dior, the blue python Chanel Flap bag, and the blue python celine box bag. I obviously love python!!!!

  • Susan

    Oh, they are all GORGEOUS!
    I particularly love that pink ostrich Birkin.

  • psny15

    beautiful bags, especially the croc dior – understated elegance

    i never liked the himalaya birkin – remind me of karTRASHians and just cheap (remind me of someone who forgot to color the entire bag 1 color since they were not paid in full)

  • Will work for the croc Lady Dior

  • Loupdeloo

    That green Constance looks like an ACTUAL ALLIGATOR. Absolutely stunning pics, and I enjoyed looking at them, even though these bags do creep me out a bit.

  • Sparky

    I LOVE exotics!!! These are gorgeous!!!!

  • Kristoffer

    The Gucci Bamboo in Python is stunning, and so is that Fendi Peekaboo.

  • Asiah

    PLEASE WATCH THIS! https://youtu.be/Q-ZFejgqniw
    You’ll never look the same way again at luxury Hermés bags after watching this video…

    • Lori

      I can’t watch it, too upsetting. But glad you posted in order to share with people what these poor animals go through to just be a bag…

      • Aurore de La Gorce

        Idem, I can not watch this but I have read a lot about it. And it is deeply upsetting, for I love the look of exotic leathers, to speak sincerely, but I always remind myself what is behind. Animals killed and not even being eaten. So I do not buy it. And at the end of the day, it is just a bag. Nothing that justifies so much cruelty.

      • Sara

        Agreed. Not everything that looks beautiful needs to be possessed.

    • Sara

      Horrible. I’m glad you shared. I’ve never bought an exotic and never will.

    • Jerri R

      Human beings are the worst assholes in the universe

    • legal is fun

      Honestly it makes no difference to me.
      I eat ostrich meat, so i find it disrespectful not to use the rest of the animal…chicken farming is exactly like this.

  • Sara Soreson

    This post makes me wanna die. I hate my Life.

  • Unapologetic

    Fugly.

  • Me

    Um. No. Just no.

  • chris

    Most of these pics are so self-serving it’s sickening… the purses may or may not be gorgeous, but the Kardashian-like, self-aggrandizing posturing of their nouveau-riche owners is low-class and very sad. But I doubt they recognize that character flaw.
