Vert anis or vert chartreuse look nice in ostrich. I think it is also available in fuchsia.
You should check the leather book in your H boutique to see what colours ostrich comes in.
Having said that, I still think that it really rocks in gold.

Bright colors that make you forget you are looking at a plucked bird skin--Vert Anis and Fuschia are beautiful. Red is nice, Royal Blue sounds good and someone here has Raisin which is gorgeous. I share the opinion of some others that natural pale tan is rather too natural.

I have chocolate and luv it. Remember too that ostrich darkens with use and oils from hands. That said I feel that the darker colors don't show this as much. This may be more of a concern with bags because of handles tho.

I recommend the VIOLETTE OSTRICH WITH phw (CURRENTLY AT NYC MADISON). i have it and the rich violet purple is very forgiving and goes with everything!

Sus has a :tup: point here. I say go for dark colours like chocolate too.
