Alexandra DeClaris is a new line of beautifully handcrafted handbags using the highest grade quality of exotic skins. Launched just last year, this timeless collection is made up of must-have daybags and clutches in a range of precious colours all with their signature pale pink suede lining.
Colour is key to Alexandra’s aesthetic - python, ostrich, stingray, lizard and crocodile skins are dyed in a bespoke process to achieve exclusive colours that are not available to other designers. Hobos, totes, box clutches and her ENVY-lopes exude instant glamour and make for an everlasting addition to her clientele’s wardrobe.
“I wanted to address the tendency towards fleeting handbag trends with this collection. I aimed to create classic designs that would stand the test of time, investment pieces for women – pieces that could take them through every stage of life.”
American born Alexandra DeClaris started her studies at Stateside before relocating to London to complete her education. Upon graduation, she moved to New York and began her career working for Vanity Fair Magazine. Embarking on a career in fashion, Alexandra felt that it was time to invest in an exotic skin handbag, but was shocked to find that all those on the market hovered around the $6,000 price mark. Her discovery ignited a passionate search for manufacturers who might make her vision of a luxurious and relatively affordable handbag a reality.
At the successful conclusion of her fervent search she had a sample made, and what began as a personal quest expanded into a full collection of exclusive Alexandra DeClaris clutch, hobo and tote bags. Celebrity fans of ADC clutches and statement handbags include Molly Sims, Kelly Brook, and Sarah Harding to name a few. The collection is available at the Alexandra DeClaris online boutique.
