Beirn is a family affair. Founded in 2007 by Rita Overzat and her daughters, Ali Trier and Jenna Overzat, this New York-based luxury handbag label started off with a few snakeskin bags the trio designed for themselves after vacationing in Indonesia. Friends and strangers loved the bags, and Beirn (pronounced “burn”) was born — offering the iconic Jenna hobo bag in its first collection. Today Beirn's line of handbags and accessories includes totes, envelope clutch bags, belts, shoes, wallets, and hairbands made from exotic animal skins as well as suede and batik. Sold worldwide, Beirn bags have also played a part in shaping popular culture: one even made a cameo on Carrie’s arm in “Sex and the City: The Movie.”
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. Look for oversize watersnake satchels and luxe python clutches in basic black and striking, marbleized patterns, and everything in between.
Take a shine to these glossy snakeskin bags. In basic black, the finish looks perfectly refined, but in metallics and albino stripes, they have a decidedly trendy edge. Choose from roomy hobos and shoppers or a selection of slim clutches.
