Embossed Croc is One of Fall 2023’s Biggest Trends

And we've got some picks to help you nail it

Crocodile-embossed leather bags typically garner very strong opinions. People typically either love them or loathe them. But regardless of how you feel about them, embossed croc is a trend that never really goes away, but depending on the season, it’s more widespread than others. This fall, embossed croc is shaping up to be one of the biggest handbag trends out there.

Spotted on the fall runways at Ferragamo, Versace, Givenchy, and more designers, both big and small, are embracing embossed croc, adding it into their lineups for fall 2023. Given its shiny finish, embossed croc is elegant and elevated, adding a nice edge to any bag. This season, there are many options, from Saint Laurent, and Ferragamo to smaller brands like Coperni and DeMillier; we found over a dozen bags for you to tap into this trend. As the fall season is just beginning, we have a feeling that we’ll be seeing a lot more of this trend too.

I just don’t see how Balenciaga is making any money. I see their bag and see scandal. The other bags are beautiful.

I absolutely agree. Repeated patterns of child exploitation is far beyond ‘a scandal’ to ‘just move on’ from. The tolerance for child exploitation in the name fashion is disturbing. Balenciaga is HARD NO for me.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but there has been so much scandal with just about every luxury brand. Many just don’t know about all of it. Much happened prior to social media as well. As a mom of both a boy and girl, I say just move on. This has been overplayed and everyone just needs to get over it.

I still see Balenciaga when I’m out and about-bags, shoes, clothes. I didn’t get rid of mine. Just like with other brands, people have moved on.

Agree, I don’t carry it anymore but my 2008 Classic City in Rubisse will be with me till I die! The most delicious color on the softest leather, makes me happy just to see it on my shelf ❤️

Seriously move on. Literally nobody cares about the scandal anymore. Every brand has something to hide, so I suppose you should just stop wearing designer’s altogether! 🙄 Oh, and PS purseblog, mock-croc has been around for a long time, it’s not some new interesting trend.

Because people don’t get stuck in the past and hold grudges against.

I tried to like these bags, but I’m not a fan of the texture.

Lucky for me (for once), I am in the group that absolutely loathes anything croc or croc embossed. Hard Pass!

Totally agree. Just don’t like the croc look embossed or otherwise. No to all of the above.

Call me boring and old – I am – but I much prefer the classic look of Ferragamo prior to the new designer. My SA said they’re hoping the change will make the brand fresher and more appealing to a younger demographic. I can understand that.

Never knew croc was out. Love real croc and embossed croc if it is well done.
I will pull out my Sac de Jour in black embossed croc again then!
These things always come and go.
