About the designer
Born in Colombia and experiencing the country’s extraordinary culture and uncontaminated nature, designer Nancy Gonzalez found a way to reflect this deeply rooted splendor in her creations. Her special relation to nature created an urge to work with real materials, explaining her signature use of textured leather such as croc and python. She pushes the classic, artisanal materials past their creative limit by adding contemporary twists. In previous collections, she has had crocodile bags woven with snake skin or embossed with leopard print. Playing around with these fabrics in an artistic way allows her to keep reinventing them. Gonzalez contributes to local sustainability by having natives handcraft each piece with great precision.
