Handbags are one of those popular accessories; in fact, they are almost essential for women (and sometimes men) who must find a way to fit their entire lives into a small bag. Many of the world’s biggest celebrities are often photographed carrying their favorite (sometimes even exclusive) designer bags. Handbags come in different sizes, from small hand clutches, all the way to large totes., there is a handbag fit for every type of carrier. Due to their versatile nature, handbags can also be made from a variety of materials, including expensive leather and furs. With such flexibility, it is no surprise that the price range for handbags can also vary greatly. Here are this year’s five most expensive fall handbags.

1. Gucci Soft Stirrup Crocodile Shoulder Bag $32,500
The Italian based luxury brand, Gucci, has been one of top high end designer brands for almost a century; so it should come as no surprise that they are responsible for this fall’s most expensive handbag. The soft stirrup crocodile should bag is made form soft crocodile skin that gives the beg a sort of “slouchy” appearance. However, in this case “slouchy” certainly doesn’t mean sloppy as the bag is able to maintain the sort of high-end appeal that Gucci has become known for.
