Designers can be quite adventurous when it comes to creating “exotic” bags. The overuse of unusual animal materials can either delight or deter women from the bag in question, which I think might be the case with the Roberto Cavalli Squirrel-Trimmed Brocade Shoulder Bag. The fact that it’s accented by an animal that we see just about every day is something I’m personally repulsed by – but there are many, many women out there who would appreciate this for its otherwise lavish appearance. The black and gold brocade is certainly handiwork to be admired, but I’m nixing it because of that trim! Available for $3650 at Net-a-Porter.
