Here’s what we, and every other women, like in an investment handbag: We want it to look sophisticated and timeless. The best ones are all of the above, but come with a hefty price tag. But alas, enter there croc-effect handbags - the exception to that rule.
Croc-embossed leather has that luxurious heritage feel that brings to mind a treasured family heirloom. Rustic but rich, and quaint without looking dated – the perfect formula for the makings of an Instagram-worthy It-bag. And the best part is, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg for one of these babies. Falling in the $400 to $1,000 bracket, some of these accessible croc-effect bags are considered a steal.
Look out for modern shapes like Rejina Pyo’s rectangular clasp bag, and energised colourways. Ahead, we’ve round up our favourite faux croc skin bags to shop right now.
