It’s so rare that Nancy Gonzalez makes a misstep. Her handbags may not be revolutionary, but it’s nearly impossible to go wrong with exotic materials, beautiful colors and simple shapes. It appears as though she has handbag design nearly down to a science.

The Nancy Gonzalez Hand-Held Croc Clutch is merely the most recent in a long line of sartorial successes from the brand, and as always, I’m drooling over it. Bicolor bag design is difficult to do well (as we’re also discussing over at PurseBlog Savvy currently), but I have absolutely no complaints about this clutch. Well, other than the fact that it isn’t in my closet, of course.

The slouchy finish of the blue croc attracts me to this clutch more than anything else. Crocodile is usually a material reserved for structured, rigid bags, and I always enjoy seeing it used in a soft and touchable way. And if you purchased this clutch, you’d be touching it a lot – not only is it beautiful, but at 16 inches wide, day-to-night transitions would be effortless. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $3200.

    It is cute- I guess….

    But for $3,200 I could buy two of my dream bags….and have some left over.

    Not for me.

    I remember this silhouette from the 80s. I had one, but it wasn’t in this fabrication, of course. Mine had a plastic handle with a pleather body.
    I’m not a fan of black and blue mixed together. It’s just okay, but I don’t know if I could get my fingers in there and mine are small.

      I had a similar bag too but mine had a wooden handle with wool fabric and it reversed to a silky fabric. It was during the whole preppy period ( they had a preppy handbook if you could believe that! ).

  • merve

    I have a complaint about this clutch…..the price????

      With how big of a clutch this is (16 inches is quite large), it probably uses about the same amount of material as one of her smaller croc satchels, which are usually in this price range. It’s more than I want to pay for a bag, sure, but I don’t think it’s astronomical relative to Gonzalez’s other prices.
