Original vintage clothing and accessories can often pose something of a moral dilemma for consumers, with the frequent use of ethically dubious materials. Thankfully for lovers of the look and not the methods, there's pieces to be found that successfully fake it like this Crocodile Brooch Clutch from River Island.
The use of a deep green faux crocodile fabric, along with a rich brown faux leather, creates a real vintage shop luxury. The addition of a gold crocodile brooch to the clasp is a cheeky little detail with a glamorous and edgy feel, ideal for mid-20th century style.
It's available now from River Island for £24.99.
