The word is Exotic and the world of Exotic bags is all up and about just being alive and kicking! We are talking Python, Alligator, Lizard, Anaconda.. you name it, imagine it, and if backed by serious purse strings, you can have it!
The bags in these Exotics are upwards of many thousands of dollars and without getting into the debate of, if it is right or wrong, ethical or not..some of these bags are gorgeous in all of their being. Feast your eyes on some of my picks..
Here is the Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile Satchel. Beautiful isn’t it? You have to feel it to know it baby!! Buy for a mere (ahem) $3500.00 via Saks.
And here is the Bottega Veneta Limited Edition Python Hobo available at Saks for $4960.00. I know, I know its a bit heavy on the wallet but one can’t help admiring it..
And tell me how wonderful is this Bottega Veneta Anaconda bag.. Luscious is the word that comes to mind..but way over what I can even dream to afford at $4540.00..but that shouldn’t stop us from dreaming right? Read more via The Bag Snob.
(psst… Payal and I call them the Bottega Dreams! Ha!)
I love the texture of Python leather, its soft and buttery but still flaky..it is not perfect, and the leather has a bit of textured-grainy feel! You can constantly run your fingers on the leather, up and down the bag, absolutely loving the feel of it, without ever getting tired of it! Of course, I then started looking for an Exotic that can even be remotely afforded and I found this beautiful Gucci Black Python Princy Large Top Handle Tote at $1950.00. Still a hefty price but compared to whats in the market currently, this is practically a steal! And remember these prices are only going to keep going up, up and up, so this is a good investment methinks!Buy via Bergdorf Goodman. Take a look!
So..how Exotic are you?
