We spend ample time informing you of the most anticipated bags of the season and where to find them. If you're looking for a bag that's not as easily identifiable, however, we're here to tell you that Nancy Gonzalez might just solve all of your handbag dilemmas.
Gonzalez's handbags tends to skew more under-the-radar than many brands we cover, but that's exactly the advantage. Instead of going for logos or signature hardware, the brand specializes in exotics, particularly crocodile from the designer's native Colombia. These timeless, elegant bags range from structured and clean to embellished and intricate, and they'll instantly elevate your look in the most luxurious way. Also, relative to how much many brands charge for crocodile, these exotics are very well priced, with many pieces in the $2,000 to $3,000 range.
Although often I personally like a little bit of flash, there's something admirable about the simple designs of Gonzalez's handbags. While Gonzalez's stripped bags are a stunner, the brand also dabbles in the other end of the handbag spectrum with intricate patterns and piled-on details, which are alway my personal favorites. The colors of these bags are some of the prettiest I've seen, and the exotic skin adds another rich element. Shop my personal favorites below.
