Now this? This is more like it.

Earlier this week, we documented a rare Nancy Gonzalez misstep with the Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile and Whipsnake Floral Tote. It lacked the easy simplicity of most of Gonzalez’s designs, and it also went without a bit of the luxury for which she’s known.

Luckily, I found the Nancy Gonzalez Pleated-Trim Croc Satchel to wipe that from our memories and remind us all why Ms. Gonzalez is the biggest croc designer in the business.

What Gonzalez does best is take a super-luxe material and keep it ultra sleek. The only interruption to the beautiful exotic skin in this bag is some restrained pleating at the sides that looks almost like gills, and other than that, someone obviously used a keen editing eye when designing this bag. It’s both functional and luxe, and I don’t think that normal use would destroy it – what else could you want in an exotic? Buy through Saks for $3800.

    I prefer to say the pleats look like window shutters! Less stinky ^_^! I like symmetry so this bag has my name on it.

    it is gorgeous but if that is real croc i am disappointed that you support bags made of animals.

    • mochababe73

      Just in case you didn’t know, Nancy Gonzalez is known for her use of REAL animal skins. Most bags posted here are made from animal skins. You may want to try a blog devoted to handbags made of faux leathers and hides.

      Not being facetious. Just giving you information.

    Do we allow people to leave the html web links to advertise their stuff here??? I am surprised. I thought this forum is for opinion on the handbag above. This is a pretty colour handbag.
