Alexa was created out of a brief to create a classy, individual handbag which would be ideal for evenings out whilst maintaining the solid looks and build quality that are evident throughout the collection.
Made using the same sturdy three-piece gusset construction as my satchel-inspired bags and with a wide, flat base, Alexa is gratifyingly robust without compromising the elegance and femininity of the design. The 1/3-width flap – which looks the same from the back as from the front – takes a few aesthetic cues from the Art Nouveau, while the decorative stitching lines add an extra layer of visual interest.
Alexa fastens using a magnetic stud catch on the flap, and the front and back of the bag pinch together when it’s closed to provide security for whatever you put inside. With a short grab handle neatly following the curved lines of the sides of the bag, Alexa is a stylish handbag with an appealing, distinctive silhouette and a wealth of interesting decorative and constructional features.
