Crocodile skin is the hide of the moment - if you've got a few quid to spend that is.
The autumn/winter runways were full of the stuff — from Dior’s super chunky snow boots to Louis Vuitton’s butter-soft aviator jackets to Belstaff’s hardwearing biker bombers.
But for us, this season’s standout piece is Giorgio Armani’s crocodile skin briefcase.
Meticulously crafted from smooth nappa-esque croc leather, it’s lined with calf suede and lambskin, finished with gold-plated brass metalwork and is a sure-fire way to make a bold statement in the office this autumn. Crocodile leather briefcase (£14,500, Giorgio Armani)
