By Pamela Golbin
If these exquisitely crafted handbags and accessories in rare and richly textured precious skins seem to reflect something extraordinary and slightly unfamiliar—it may be the natural wonders and warm culture of Nancy Gonzalez’s native Colombia, from which she draws inspiration. In unconventional hues and shapes that riff on classical and organic forms, her collection effortlessly telegraphs the qualities of the woman herself: joy, elegance, and strength.
ASSOULINE’S newest tome is dedicated to the authentic, unique, and pure qualities that inspire the creation of Nancy Gonzalez’s luxurious handbags. “A handbag,” she says, “is a hint of who you are and what you value, a reflection of personal style.” Her creations present an ongoing, passionate dialogue with the world that surrounds her, taking cues from nature, specifically the exotic terrain of her homeland, Colombia, as well as the everyday world she inhabits. Her creations combine the beautiful and the utilitarian, uniting exotic colors and materials with the commonplace functions of everyday. Her inspired style, dedication to quality, and unique outlook is revealed on every page.
