I found Alex Elliott through a good friend several months ago and immediately fell in love with the line...gorgeous gotta-have em clutches (you know I am obsessed), small leather goods and the hottest belts I have seen in a long, long, long time.
Alex Elliott works primarily with real snakeskin, but she doesn't create the classic. Instead she uses vibrant colors to truly set the collection apart from anything else in the marketplace...hot pinks, turquoise, bright yellow...each is more stunning than the next. She also experiments with combining colors which adds another whole element to the line. Perhaps my favorite part of the collection is that you truly feel it pays tribute to the little critters she uses to create her fab bags. Several of the clutch styles have these organic snake shaped pieces or should I say designs that give the bags a unique texture...that said, they don't look like add-ons, but instead give the bags movement and texture. I am obsessed with the over-sized clutches, but her small shapes also are simply perfect. A friend of mine says her small zip top bag is the perfect evening accessory...just big enough for her money, her phone and her lipstick...what more does a girl need. Alex Elliot's bags are also priced extremely well for real skin...all under $600, which just adds to their must-have status.
The belts are amazing. They are actually designed to look like snakes. The leather is braided and of course the buckles are snake heads. They also come in amazing colors and I promise would be your statement go to belt!!! If memory serves me correctly they are somewhere in the mid-$200 range...a major steal.
So please come check out Alex Elliot at the 515 East 72nd Street/Miraval Living Retail Therapy event. I promise you will be so happy you did. Every girl needs the perfect clutch and I promise you ladies, this is. Oh and by the way, the line is VERY new, so you will be one of the first to own what will sure to be one of the next It Bag lines!!!!
