I’m already shopping for fall, and since ponyhair is always high on the autumnal agenda, I fell fast and hard for this sumptuous top handle. The bag is a Nancy Gonzalez, so crocodile is of course involved – just on the sidelines this time. While leopard print with croc side panels is an ambitious combo, the animal magnetism of it is undeniable. Lush ponyhair and a rich print command attention, yet like animal print shoes, are neutral enough to offer you ultimate versatility. The size is great for your everyday essentials, which are sleekly concealed thanks to a hidden magnetic closure. The look may be wild on the outside, but the interior has been tamed to OCD perfection with two compartments divided by a zip pocket. They say a leopard never changes its spots – when they’re this chic, why would it want to? Available on Browns for $4,271.
