NEW YORK, Dec 8, 2009 / FW/ — Nancy Gonzalez is giving her fans an early Christmas – a clutch collection of over 100 in an array of limited edition hues and a new book, “Nancy Gonzalez” both of which the designer will preview at Bergdorf Goodman on Thursday, December 10th and Friday, December 11th, from 2-5 PM.
Pamela Golbin, author of the book “Nancy Gonzalez” explained it best on why Nancy Gonzalez is a favorite among the social set and continues to expand its market share while other luxury brands are shrinking.
“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.”
The book also gives an insight on the design philosophy behind this wildly successful label. Designer Nancy Gonzalez was quoted saying, “A handbag is a hint of who you are and what you value, a reflection of personal style.”
As her fans already know, Nancy Gonzalez designs and produces the collection in Colombia; and is available at luxury retailers including Harrod’s of London, Aizel of Moscow, Isetan of Japan, Joyce of Hong Kong and Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.
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.
