Usually we would turn our cute little noses up at stamped crocodile but this is such a beautiful bag and the embossed leather is so luxurious (I saw it in person, it’s to-die!) that even the most seasoned leather craftsman would have a hard time discerning it from the real thing. And it is Armani afterall, with the exquisite details and craftsmanship you’d expect from him. For those of you who want the luxe look of exotic skin but don’t want to shell out $18,000+, here is a nice alternative and don’t worry, we won’t tell if you won’t. $1,495 at Nordstrom.
