Needless to say I absolutely adore both bags. I think the Mulberry Alexa is fabulous, and does indeed have its own style flavor. When I first held the PV replica handbags version in hand I was disappointed. The leather is not as soft as the original. I asked around about it, and discussed the problem with the manufacturer. The solution turned out to be a cheap and regular leather conditioner, which you can use to condition the leather. After I treated it, it was wonderful, just like the original. This is a huge relief because I was feeling like this wasn’t one of their better replica handbags, but now that the problem is solved I’m pretty much feeling the opposite. This is definitely the best replica of this bag out there. Other Brands
If you aren`t a dedicated follower of fashion, you might not know who Alexa Chung is. If you don`t, you clearly haven`t picked up a copy of Vogue`s Best Dressed 2011 Special Edition, and you need to do some research girl. But if you are one of the few people who`ve been trapped under a rock for the last few years and missed this ‘Rocker Girl’ with street cool, it`s ok, I`m not judging you. But you should know that Mulberry has designed an amazing bag inspired by/named after Alexa and not just anybody gets a bag named after them.
The Mulberry Alexa is, arguably, the most instantly iconic bag released in the last two years. While the industry is moving away from reliance in “It Bags” and towards diversity and expression of individuality, the Alexa has found a way to become the universally coveted amongst fashionistas. If you can afford just one Mulberry ( I have two – one clutch in chocolate and a cross body in yellow….and I`m considering buying a third!) this cross body in brown calfskin (see above) from Purse is the bag for you. Alexa herself has been seen with this bag countless times. Here`s a great image of her rocking it with an absolutely adorable outfit.
The Mulberry line is best described as masculine urban chic – their inspiration was a mix of Alexa Chung`s London-Soho casual cool and their own vintage men`s briefcases – and this androgynous look is perfect for the current fashion scene where standard gender-roles are being bent by both men and women. I love the Alexa. And, I love the way it adds strength to my look. I consider myself to be a strong, independent minded woman, and this bag is perfect for expressing just that.
You can see in the image above how Alexa (wearing her namesake bag in two of those shots) is able to look feminine, casual, and strong at once. That, my friends, is a great modern look and that`s why she`s making best dressed lists just about every week. Mulberry was wise to name this bag after her because both Alexa and her namesake bag are totally NOW. But, I`ll stop preaching this Mulberry Alexa gospel. What do you guys think?
Is the Mulberry Alexa worthy of It Bag status?
