Johanna Konanz Releases Spring 2012 Purses | Colorful Exotic Clutches & Satchels

Posted on: Nov 21

Lurid hues like turquoise, purple, hot pink, canary yellow, and bright green could have appeared overwhelming, but by using classic handbag styles, the Ecuadorian designer has ensured things don't feel over the top. There are classic satchel bags and everyday wallets, and clutch purses ready to take you from day to night.

The bright colors help to liven up Konanz's favorite exotic skins. I love the way the natural crocodile, python, and ostrich skins contrast with rainbow hued versions. While they're ideal for the season they also have a timeless quality about them. Konanz was inspired by classic style icons like Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy, two women I can easily imagine carrying the purses to a red carpet event in years gone by.

Of course we'll pay a premium for the authentic exotics that Konanz uses, but they're so lovely that I'm tempted to splurge. However it's easy to be tempted when you don't know the bottom line. Johanna Konanz gives us a link for inquiries rather than exact prices for the purses, which is generally code for super expensive. At least it's free to browse!
