Handbag Designer Spotlight: Devi Kroell

Think of handbag designer Devi Kroell as Chloe's or Miu Miu's exotic little sister. The line's namesake spent her formative years jumping between Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, France, and Italy, and as a result, her look is at once very far-flung and highly luxurious.

Adorned with bold, simple hardware, Kroell's minimalist bags are constructed out of python, anaconda, and other reptilian skins in a bazaar of bright colors. You can buy the bags online at Barneys and select Nordstrom stores, and the brand counts Ashlee Simpson, Sienna Miller, Selma Blair, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, and Demi Moore among its fans. Here are some of my favorite looks.

Devi Kroell Nile Perch Shoulder Bag, about $2,261, available here.

Devi Kroell Gramercy Bag Medium in Anaconda, $2,190, available here.

Devi Kroell Classic Hobo in Red, $3,990, available here.

To see the rest,

Devi Kroell Soft Evening Clutch in Metallic Python, $290, available here.

Devi Kroell Roman Tote Large in Anaconda, $1,990, available here.

Devi Kroell Classic Long Hobo in Metallic Python, $2,590, available here.

Hmmm...my husband used to have a snake that I referred to as my skirt. LOL But, I don't actually like animal parts as accessories.

I love them... :P. I've seen a pink metallic hobo in python and it is HOT. And that clutch is surprisingly reasonable. Is it really only $290? For python?

they're cute, but real snakeskin kind of grosses me out, especially when it looks like its flaking, like on the first bag
