It’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure of writing about a Nancy Gonzalez handbag, and I think I’ve figured out why: I can never tell when they’re new. I don’t mean to say that they all look alike, but…a lot of them look alike. Although I guess if a design isn’t broken, you don’t fix it.

The Nancy Gonzalez Navy Croc Tote surely isn’t broken. In fact, it looks like a completely functional yet totally elegant answer to most women’s need for an everyday bag. Plus, because it’s Nancy Gonzalez, it’s also and exotic at a relatively reasonable price.



There’s not a terrible lot to say about Nancy Gonzalez’s croc bags that I haven’t said before, so I’ll try not to repeat myself too much. What’s always struck me the most about them, though, is that they seem a good deal less fragile than your average ultra exotic croc bag. In fact, they seem downright tough at times, which probably allows Gonzalez to use less expensive crocodile hides than brand like Hermes, which uses only the most fragile, spotless skins. She passes at least some of the savings on to her customers – Gonzalez makes some of the most reasonably priced croc bags on the market. Buy through Saks for $3300.

    This bag is beautiful. I love the simplicity. A saleslady at NM told me that Nancy Gonzalez has a crocodile farm and raises her own hides in Florida (if I remember correctly). I wonder if that means her hides are less expensive? Anyway, if I could afford it, I would buy this bag!

    OMG croc for $3000 I just love both the bag and the price. Cool better start checking out Nancy’s collections. Just impressed with the reasonable price!

    I was thinking the same thing about the price. It is so reasonable for what you’re getting. I am not a fan of croco embossing. The real deal is so beautiful. However, I am certain that this is going to turn into being nice to animals and using non animal skin hides for handbags instead of commenting on how beautiful the bag is.

    Everything about this bag is absolutely gorgeous; but my favorite feature is definitely the rich navy color.

  • Jan

    It is beautiful, but in my world $3000 for a handbag isn’t reasonable!

  • Barb

    This bag is beautiful in it’s simplicity.The color is understated gorgeousness and my favorite detail is the handles with the overlapping scales. Maybe one day but not now but if I ever $3000 to spend on a hancbag this would be it!

  • Terri

    It’s a very corporate world friendly bag. I like that it’s a true navy color.

  • Caroline

    Gorgeous bags. But to be fair the crocodile that Nancy Gonzales uses is Cayman crocodile (a South American species) and not the same species and grade as others like Hermes. (I had a salesman in Neimans explain it to me when I asked why they were so much cheaper)

  • Cheryl

    Not a huge fan of crocodile bags but the rich color & design on this handbag is beautiful. Wonder how much time goes into making such a handbag?
