The Material Boy #329


Davi Crocodile Leather Shopper

This is indulgence! The ultimate getaway bag in its most grandiose of all leathers, crocodile skin:-P Definitely for the high roller jet set crowd whereby the bag will get eyes fixated on you as you check into all the luxurious hotels along your journeys. What I most like about this Davi Crocodile shopper is the trapeze shape with contrasting leather textures. Crocodile skin on the front, back and handles and smooth calf skin on the sides. A handsome companion for the most savvy of men:-P No branding required, let the impressive skin speak for itself:-P

OOOh...I can only dream of one day travelling first class and toting this bag with me in a globe trotting lifestyle:-P Bags are what 'dreams' are made of...

Retail price: HKD $68,000. Where to buy: Lane Crawford, Hong Kong

As much as I love croc skin, personally, I prefer the belly portion. Your thoughts?

Wow. Although, I have to agree with some of the above posters. If you are going to go all the way, belly cuts are the most luxurious skins. Gorgeous bag anyway.

I know I'm a bit late but...

I wonder who really makes this bag? I saw the SAME bag at Anson's here in Hamburg, Germany branded as their own and out of the belly skins.

Thing is, it was not only priced at about 4,000€ (and included CITES certificate) but despite the use of the belly, it was still quite crispy and stiff, much unlike Bottega Veneta or Tod's...
