Nuti New Yorker Ostrich HoboOstrich is a material that we don’t tend to talk about all that often. Of late, it’s been overshadowed by other exotics like python, and it’s not as common that you see it. Some brands still do an exceptional job with it, though – Hermes and Mulberry come to mind. Another brand that’s know for it is Nuti, who are lesser known but have so far done a great job when it comes to their specialty material.

A couple of weeks ago, I got the chance to see the Nuti New Yorker Ostrich Hobo in person in Atlanta, and I was absolutely blown away. The version that I saw was a deep, rich purple similar to Balenciaga‘s Fall 2007 Violet, and the leather was amazing. I sometimes shy away from ostrich because of its resemblance to the skin of an enormous chicken, but this bag is truly gorgeous. The variations of the leather are all the visual interest it needs, and the handle is artfully constructed and unique, compared to the afterthought leather straps we normally see. In my mind, they’ve got a big, big winner here. Buy through Saks for $3400.


Nuti Ostrich Frame Clutch

So this handbag has it all for me. Exotic skin, grey color, and a clutch. Right there are three things that I absolutely adore in a handbag, and this baby has it all! We have covered bags by Nuti before, and really, from quite some time back I have been a fan. And now we have this beautiful little number, the Nuti Ostrich Frame Clutch, which is sleek and stunning. The clutch features paneled ostrich and is finished up with a modern silver clasp and snap closure. There is orange satin lining and measurements are 9″W X 6″H X 1½”D. I almost feel like there is no explanation necessary, I mean really, could this have my name all over it more or what? The only little Debbie Downer, the price is a big high for a clutch. But these days, prices on bags are astronomical, so it should not come as a huge shocker. Buy through Saks for $1,595.

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I really have my sister, Megs, to thank for my increased awareness when it comes to all things handbag. As her love for handbags and accessories grew, I began to learn more and if nothing else, pay way more attention to trends. At the same time, I consider myself to be fairly earthy crunchy/animal friendly so originally I couldn’t justify an exotic handbag. But over time, my appreciation grew and now, I think an exotic here and there isn’t such a bad thing. That brings me to the Nuti Meduim Ostrich Hobo Bag.

I must admit, I do love Ostrich. To me, the material is flawless; it is soft to the touch and on the eye. Moreover, it is the kind of material that doesn’t need any loud accessories or hardware to accompany it. I love the shape of this hobo. And as we’ve already discussed, top-handled bags are definitely very popular right now, so the top-handled style here just makes me like the bag even more. Stud accents along the bottom will help spare the material a bit when setting the bag down. A nice contrast to the exterior color is the bright suede lining. I am a fan of this kind of contrast, but am still not really sure how I feel about the “green” color of the bag. If you are like me and would prefer the bag in a different color, it comes in brown as well. Add this exotic hobo to your collection through Saks for a pricey but to be expected $3,980.00.
