When you get down to the details, it’s no surprise that Nancy Gonzalez‘s bags are so successful. First, the brand keeps costs down by sourcing most materials from its own farms, which means that Gonzalez’s crocodile and python bags are among the most well-priced exotics in the mass-market luxury business. Second, Gonzalez & Co. let the rare materials take center stage, as you can see so well in the Nancy Gonzalez Python Satchel.

Multicolored python can become cheap-looking very quickly if the designer doesn’t take care to maintain the integrity of the skin’s natural pattern, but the blue and cream combination that we see here only enhances the python’s inherent beauty.

The color scheme makes this bag look a little bit like a map of the world (well, at least a map of some islands) when I glance at it very quickly, but I’m not entirely opposed to that effect. In fact, I’m not opposed to it in the least – the colors work together to create a sunny, summery bag with an elegant finish. If only every designer worked with exotics so well. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $2600.

    This is a very gorgous bag, my only complaint is the handle, I wish it was more like a solid color instead of having the same pattern.

    I am not a fan of exotic animal skins. Just not my taste. But, what I like about Nancy Gonzalez is that she uses simple silhouettes so that the skins can take center stage. The bells and whistles are the skins.

    You know, I’m not big on python, but this bag has swayed me. I wish I could run out and get one right now, because it is TDF.

    I like python, but usually in smaller doses.. But this bag is beautiful.. No if ands, or buts about it.. Just the natural beauty of the python alone, is enough to make me sit back and just stare at it.. Stunning.

    Its stunning! I agree with the one colour handle comment though, it would work better in black.

    I’m not big on python prints, the design of the bag is beautiful.
