Destination: Krakow, Poland

In 1950s Krakow, life and fashion were dictated by the Socialist regime. While the rest of Europe was following the tight-waisted, big-haired styles of Dior and Chanel, behind the iron curtain it was largely a time of austerity and scarcity. In that inauspicious climate, the Polish fashion designer Jadwiga Grabowska made it her mission to fill the emptiness of the city’s streets with fashion from around the world. Founding the state enterprise, Fashion Poland, she traveled to creative hubs like Paris and Milan to bring fabrics and ideas back to her homeland. We like to imagine that this chocolate brown crocodile bag might have been one of the styles she introduced to the streets of Krakow.


Crocodile leather bags were all the rage in the 1950s, when women become obsessed with the idea of carrying a ‘good’ handbag around town.
