Weekenders, satchels, hobo bags and signature box clutches- some one hundred and fifty designs in over two hundred colors-- are practically a flagship to the luxury Fifth Avenue store. According to Jim Gold, chief executive officer of Bergdorf Goodman, “Nancy Gonzalez is one of the Key Brands in our accessories department. We’ve had an enormously successful relationship with her for Years. She is a true visionary who has revolutionized the precious skins market wit her mix of unconventional colors and design”.
Nancy Gonzalez designs are always modern, yet they are inspired by classical elements. “Nature is my best accomplice and my source of inspiration is life,” she says. “I always try to push the limits of what can be done with precious skin.” Her aim is to convey joy, benevolence and strength through her designs, creating an emotional relationship between her clients and their bags. “I incorporate elements to each piece that make us smile; a color, a texture, a detail, a surprise.”
