In the early 1970s, accessories designer Carlos Falchi was just another boy from Brazil living in New York City. Then he landed a job at the legendary New York hangout Max’s Kansas City, and his unconventional home-sewn handbags caught the attention of cool kids Mick Jagger and Tina Turner. Today, Falchi’s design studio on New York City’s W. 39th Street still hand-produces minimalist clutch purses, oversize hobo and tote bags, and deconstructed satchels from exotic alligator, crocodile, and python skins and premium leathers. As vivid and colorful as their rock-and-roll forebears, Falchi’s quintessentially New York bags are popular with celebs such as Madonna and Jessica Simpson, and even had a cameo in <i>Sex and the City</i>.

Standouts include a woven lambskin leather convertible tote by Katherine Kwei; a slouchy, studded hobo by Rebecca Minkoff; a suede satchel by Tylie Malibu; and a crocodile-embossed wallet by Furla.
No disrespect intended to the other exotic skins, but there's something particularly sexy about snake. Embrace the look in all its dramatic glory with this gorgeous array of looks from three of our favorite handbag brands.
