If the chatter on the internet is to be believed (and coupled with the fact that if you check out Mulberry’s online site you’ll only see 3 bags left), the days of the Alexa are numbered. Once the most sought-after of all bags ever made by the British accessories house during the tenure of then Creative Director Emma Hill, it was all I ever blogged about back in 2009 when it first came out, and it was all you guys ever asked about.

There was the Alexa in soft buffalo leather, which was then followed by variations in metallic leathers, tweed-embossed leather and even one which came in leopard prints. They made it big, they made it small, they made so many versions of it but nothing beat the original one in Oak leather that was priced at just GBP750 way, way, way back then.

Along the way, the IT bag became irrelevant, mainly because prices literally skyrocketed overnight after Mulberry decided that it had to aspire to be a luxurious leather house with equally eye-watering prices to match, and things took a turn for the worse, with Emma Hill’s departure happening soon after.

Today, under the tenure of current Creative Director Johnny Coca, it would make sense to discontinue the bag altogether since it a) wasn’t his creation to begin with and more likely, b) to align with his new vision for the brand. And it’s telling that the bag’s run will end soon, especially when a quick check online reveals only 3 styles left. Only the originals in Oak and Black are left and priced at GBP1100 each, with a third in woven raffia leather going for GBP1250. Nothing else is left, no mini bags, no oversized pieces, no wallets, nada, zilch, finito.

Which begs the question. While it is understandable for Mr Coca to do as he pleases since he is the one who will set the new creative direction, could it be a case of too fast, too soon? Or are you happy that it’s going to go on to bag heaven aka the deepest nether regions of your bag cupboard where all the discontinued/forgotten bags go to live out the rest of their lives? And if you have always wanted one but haven’t gotten around to buying one, would you do it now?

Mulberry Alexa – A Close Look At This Replica Handbags Dream Purse

Categories:Other Brands

I always think of the Mulberry Alexa, which is named for Alexa Chung, the gorgeous, young style icon, with a certain Hermes purse – the Birkin, which was of course named for that generation’s gorgeous, young style icon, Jane Birkin. While there are clear style differences, their purpose, as a roomy, sleek, sophisticated, but not overdone all-purpose handbag is one and the same. I also feel that Mulberry never pretended they weren’t copying that Birkin Hermes purse recipe for success by naming their purse after one of the generation’s most fascinating muses.


Mulberry Replica Handbag 

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.
