Luxe South Miami shoe boutique Capretto has just launched a series of limited edition python bags and backpacks, splattered with the artwork of Alex Mijares, Miami's artsiest heartthrob. According to Miami New Times, the bags retail for $1,050 and were manufactured and designed locally, save for the actual python skin, which was skinned and tanned in factories around the world including one that supplies to Gucci, which is super gucci.
