Very quickly, two things. Firstly, with that croc leather harvesting video that has been making the rounds online, it begs the question. With mock (or embossed) croc looking so much like the real thing, do we even really need the real thing these days? Next, meet Victoria Beckham’s new season offering, the Money Clutch, that besides being available in various luscious leathers, also comes in, you guessed it, mock croc.
Now available online via Net-A-Porter in Black, Mushroom and Pastel-Pink, the 25 cm by 17 cm leather bag is as much a clutch as it is a shoulder sling, with the bag’s standout hardware piece big enough for you to slip your hand into.
On the inside you’ll find 2 compartments with a zipped pocket anchoring the bag, allowing one to organise with ease. And because it’s Victoria Beckham, it’s guaranteed a place in the style annals as a keeper, so yes, you can (or you should) most definitely get it.

Yes Bagaholicboy we definitely need real croc not the mock variety. Mock croc is cheap and nasty. The real stuff is soft and pliant and ooh, very luxe. If you want the best get the best. Of course you need to ensure that its been ethically sourced and is fully REACH and CITES compliant.
