LONDON — Nancy Gonzalez, the Colombian accessories brand that specializes in exotic skins, has opened a 700-square-foot space at Harrods next to brands including Céline, Fendi and Saint Laurent — and that’s just where Santiago Barberi Gonzalez wants to be.
“Harrods has understood that we are a fashion brand made out of exotic skins,” said Gonzalez, the brand’s president and creative director, as he paced around the shop floor, fine-tuning the position of a gold ombré crocodile bag, and peering at the workmanship on a vermilion one with a crocodile covered shoulder chain.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
