Yesterday, we previewed the exotic skin bags at the Nancy Gonzalez sample sale. Officially open as of this morning, the typically pricey sale is no different this time around—the same gorgeous skins, the same high prices. Keep in mind that many of the bags on sale retail for thousands of dollars, so while these may not be steals, they are indeed deals.
Many of the classic pieces have appeared yet again, like the small crocodile crossbodys in an assortment of colors ($1,200), and an array of clutches. Prices range from $500 for python clutches and some smaller croc skin bags, up to $2,100 for something a bit larger or rare.
While there's a nice selection of larger bags and top handles for $1,900, the main pieces to focus on are the clutches and smaller bags. Aside from the fact that these are the least expensive bags at the sale—from $500 to $1,200—there's a large table filled with them in a bunch of different styles. We saw crocodile snap tops, python front flaps, and snakeskin and crocodile box clutches, all in a multitude of different patterns and colors.
The sale only runs for three days, and it was freshly restocked this morning. See the gallery above for photos of what you'll find inside, as well as a complete price list. Hours are 9am to 7pm today, and 10am to 6pm tomorrow and Wednesday.
