This month, J.Crew introduced an alligator version of their signature Edie purse, a small boxy bag with a long, thin strap. The pricey purse, which arrived “just in time for the holidays,” costs $1,500 and is being sold exclusively at J. Crew’s 769 Madison store in New York City. Product description, from the J.Crew Tumblr:
“Just in time for the holidays, we’ve introduced the Edie purse in alligator— it’s a luxurious take on our classic vintage-inspired style. Available in three colors (waterfront, pesto and merlot), each one-of-a-kind bag is hand-finished in New York City with antiqued hardware, twill lining and a detachable shoulder strap—so you can carry it as a clutch like Jenna does.”
