Nancy Gonzalez
i'd never heard of her before, but neiman marcus carries her bags. she's a designer from colombia, and almost exclusively uses exotic skins (crocodile, python, etc.) for her handbags. she has some very unique styles and ways of using python and crocodile skin. i really like her bags. they're quite expensive, but nowhere near as expensive as a crocodile or python bag from a big-name "designer" would be.

what do you think?



crocodile clutch with fruit charms, $785




crocodile shopper $1450 (looks like it'd be annoying to carry)



woven crocodile basket tote, $975



ruched python clutch $765

I think her stuff is really elegant and classic. It is fantasticaly priced for exotics too, I have never really heard much about quality but I imagine it would be quite good.

saks has carried her bags for a while. here's one that reminds me of a gucci bag:



I think they're very well priced considering the skins.

Oh I love her bags, I've used them in some of my changing sex outfits.....they're very classic as far as shapes and skins go but then she does them in a gorgeous shade of magenta or turquoise and makes it seem really fun and new.

Thanks for spotlighting this designer Brian!!! I've always thought her totes were fab, especially for the price!! Funny how I forget there's someone else out there besides Chanel, Fendi, Chloe, etc. Her bags are just refreshing......luv the woven croc and turquoise croc

I ran across her bags a few days ago at Nieman too, and had been waiting to put a post up about them. I love them! I really love the Woven Croc Tote in turquoise- it is so unique!!!!
