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.
