Nancy Gonzalez Panama Knotted Satchel | Crocodile Net Structured Black & Ivory Handbag

Posted on: Jun 6

Nancy Gonzalez Panama SatchelNancy Gonzalez delivers another enviable piece of arm candy with this Panama Knotted Satchel.

The South American designer has mixed things up a bit here, tying strips of her favorite Caimun fuscus crocodile in knots to create an exotic kind of net. This luxurious black skin is laid over pale ivory straw, dressing up the summery material and giving it an enticing new dimension.

I can appreciate Gonzalez's ingenuity, but I'm not sure this is the best way to use such a precious material. When it's all chopped up like this we lose the effect of the skin, although we're certainly still paying for it. I might have parted with $3,100 if this Panama bag was made of a solid croc, but here it feels we're being shortchanged.

The interior does little to change my mind. This satchel is a good size, not unmanageably large but also not too small to hold the things we need. But it doesn't have enough pockets to satisfy most of us, so we're left struggling with the space we do have. The handles have also been designed with looks rather than practicality in mind. A few extra inches would have made all the difference.

This Panama bag would certainly make a big impression, but something tells me it'd be more trouble to use than it's worth.
