Alexa, Shes Here!!


Not the person, the bag!! Today marked the release of Mulberry's highly anticipated Alexa and I'm in serious need of some Oak in my life. The over-sized version is not yet available online but judging by pictures, I think the regular-sized version should be just fine. I need to do some more research though since the Melrose boutique is now closed. Ideally I would want to try this on before I get it. Or another option would be to try on the PS1 and PS2 since I'm sorta torn between Mulberry and Proenza...

OMG, that's must be coincident .... I mean I was thinking about a BROWN bag.... or a YELLOW bag these past weeks. But well, I never saw Alexa in person so i couldn't justify if I will like it just from the pic. :) Hum.. maybe I will like it after YOU carry it!!! :)

Yea, thats how I feel too - I like the way it looks in pictures but I'm just not sure if thats enough for me to actually go out and get one :P I'm not one for brown or neutral colors but I LOVE the Alexa in Oak!

BTW - the Alexa also comes in this pretty yellow color and this dark blue (Ink)...

i love that alexa bag.... i almost bought a bayswater a while back but this bag is so much better. i would definitely want to try it on first though....any idea of the retail?

$1200ish!!! So its just a tad cheaper than the PS1 :)

i like the Alexa more than the Proenza Schouler one....but honestly, it doesn't seem to fit your style... :)

Yea, I'm leaning towards the Alexa too...

Cute bag! Reminds slightly of a muse II though with the closing flap, latch & front straps. Do like the shoulder strap though which is something the M2 is missing.

T - I was on the Mulberry forum today and I HATE the lining in the Alexa bags!!! A lot of the girls were also complaining that the leather isnt as good as the Bays. I think for now, I'll wait and see if Mulberry updates the line to fix the points that consumers are uphappy over..
