Valextra Tammy Alligator Bag: This Gator Can’t Wait Til Later

Wow! Wow…times a million. If it’s a truly timeless acquisition you desire, nothing but a thick slice of alligator perfection will do. When it has been executed by always-impeccable Valextra, a vintage nod with modern hardware is achieved – for a bag no other exotic can even compare to.

It doesn’t just look like a rare beauty, it is one! The Tammy is constructed from large-scale pristine alligator skin (nope, not exactly your average leather satchel). That glazed finish is not current, and that’s what makes it divine. The shine gives it an old-fashioned look – in a positive, retro movie-star way. With a shape as classic as this, reddish brown is totally old lady; but thanks to the rose-gold hardware you can turn it around and take it into the future. Avoid Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera when toting this one! Unless, of course, you are a socialite heiress and giving off that vibe is your timelessly sophisticated schtick. At Barneys New York for $19,360.
