THAT’S HAUTE: PRADA Crocodile Totes

The bags are each lined in Nappa leather.

Exotic skins have long been held in high regard for their beauty, rarity and often high price points, but every once and again a fashion house delivers such a perfectly executed implementation of said skins that they deserve an honorable mention. Case in point: Prada’s new limited edition crocodile tote. To be sold solely at the brand’s Madison Avenue, Beverly Hills and Las Vegas outposts, these super bags marry quality of construction with top-notch design to deliver the kind of bag that promises to transcend generations. Available in a variety of colors ranging from cherry red to chocolate brown, the bags are each lined in Nappa leather and include a detachable mini clutch with zip and snap fastening. Each bag will also feature a metal tag with its own identifying code number. While we can’t expose the final price point, we can share that these croc bags weigh in at a cool five figures.
