Whenever we hear that a designer is deeply inspired by her global wanderings, we are immediately intrigued by the possibilities for the end product. Taipei-born, NYC- based designer Emmaline Kuo Ranzman’s new accessories collection, Emm Kuo, is cultivating quite the following within the luxury goods market with her unique spin on the exotic skin/functional bag combination (a python messenger bag? YES, please!) and a small collection of cuff bracelets. Ranzman has spent time in Asia, the Middle East and Europe and has a resume that any die-hard fashion lover would kill for- with stints at LVMH, Catherine Malandrino, Yigal Azrouel and Stephen Burrows, before launching her own line. While you are checking out her FW11 lookbook at her site, www.erkdesigns.com, we are going to try and track down one of those python messenger bags. Obsessed.
