If you’re a fan of “The Devil Wears Prada,” which I’m sure you all are, you’ll remember that while Andy is at dinner with her friends, celebrating “jobs that pay the rent,” Dough exclaims, “Python’s hot right now!” It was… and still is. And here’s a designer you should pay attention to when it comes to exotic skins — particularly python.
Robyn Brooks New York offers a high-end collection of fashion accessories, featuring exotic skins in a variety of colorful handbags and jewelry, as you’ll see in the pictures below. Brooks’ collection consists of handbags, clutches, bangles, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings, pulling together high-quality metals and exotic skins (such as python and stingray) into a line that would make her past jobs at Michael Kors, Manolo Blahnik and Kara Ross proud. Brooks defines her personal style as creative, luxurious and quirky, and her collection exemplifies this style. On achieving personal style, Brooks says, “It’s not about buying the most expensive or trendy piece, but about owning items that are personal and make you feel good.” That’s a motto all of us aspiring fashionistas can live by.
Her prices range $96 – $1945, and you can view the entire collection at www.robynbrooksny.com.
