This handbag will literally be the cherry on top of your summer and winter ensemble. This beautifully structural Croc Frame Bag by Nancy Gonzalez will have you reaching for your credit card before you can say: ‘£3,455.00’ (which is, by the way, the price tag).

However, do not retreat back, heels tumbling, at this revelation. You’ve got to think as this piece as an investment.

Not only will this chic, classically shaped handbag work with this summer’s colour-blocking ensemble, but its cute tasselled zip-pulls will let everyone around you know that you are on-track with the trends. In fact, for next season, it is potentially critical that you own this bag. With its cherry red hue and crocodile leather exterior, you will be always rocking an imaginary catwalk, even if you’ll just on a mad dash to your local newsagents. Quite literally, it is the bag, to er, bag.

You’ll be able to work this piece against your other glistening jewel tones next season. From glamorous garnet and sapphire, to emerald, amethyst and citrine – it’s like S/S’11 colour-blocking, but more luxurious. And you’ll be able to hold this handbag just the way the fashion-pack hold theirs: tucked in the crook of your arm and hugged closely to the body. Just remember to give it pride of place in your wardrobe – because this bag will last you a life-time!
