I'm curious about this because today I bumped into my [former] Hermès SA when she was locking her shop door in the evening and had a little chat on the street. She offered me a violet Prorsus Birkin. Of course I didn't take up her offer nor did I give her my real reason, I just said I feel that exotic leathers are too 'classic' (you know what I mean ) for me so that's the end of that. I want to know your take on the age that you can start wearing crocodile or lizard or shark skin for that matter, LOL without looking weird. I feel that wearing an exotic handbag before 35 just looks strange; it's just not natural and looks forced somehow .
