Any regular reader of this blog knows that I’m drooling over a whole lot of bags for winter – Celine, YSL, Mulberry, Alexander Wang…my list is long and expensive, just as it always is. We can go ahead and add the Carlos Falchi Gathered Crocodile Tote to it, although I’d need a bit of a windfall to make it a practical option.
Since this blog is clearly not about practicality, however, let’s pretend for a moment that we can all afford to spend over five grand on this beautiful bit of grey crocodile loveliness. This satchel is certainly more affordable than, say, a crocodile Hermes Birkin, and in my mind, that gives me a little bit of hope. Or perhaps it merely strengthens my delusion…
Because the bag is so simple, it’s beautiful in a really obvious way. Gorgeous exotic leather + neutral, nuanced color = drool, in what may be the easiest equation this side of remedial algebra. In fact, Falchi’s nuanced dying techniques are usually what makes his bag’s a cut above. Exotic leather deserves a treatment that accents its natural variations and texture, and this bag does exactly that in a neutral shade that can be paired with literally anything. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $5295.
