We love a luxury bag to lust over at PlusMinus, and Alexandra K bags are our current brand du jour. Why are we so crazy about these bags we hear you ask. Well let us tell you; not only are they super luxurious and reasonably priced, but they are 100% cruelty-free and vegan. As much as we love a good bag, we really love vegan alternatives for our wardrobe.

Vegan bags that look and feel this good? Seriously we are not making this up.

Alexandra K uses a material called freedom leather, which is made of 100% silicone. Now for some science; this unique material is a non-plastic and non-petroleum material, made from quartz sand. This means it’s not only less dependant on raw materials but is less damaging to the environment than the leather alternatives. It is head and shoulders above other vegan alternatives and so much better for the environment than real leather.

Inspired by making her business cruelty free, Alexandra Kościkiewicz has created a line of elegant and chic bags. Each item has a plaque with a unique serial number and also a guarantee of its cruelty-free and vegan status.

With such an incredible set of credentials, we thought we would pick our top 9 Alexandra K bags that your wardrobe needs, that will be perfect for the autumn winter season.

1.1.6 in Black Apple

This is a great sized bag to carry everything you need in chic comfort. With a plethora of pockets and internal compartments, this bag is an undercover workhorse.

2. 2.5 in Caramello Suede

This is a great soft bag perfect for every day. It’s flexible and versatile, having a huge interior pocket for all the things we carry. It can be worn crossbody as well as having a top handle to carry.

3. 1.6 Mini in Burgundy
Inspired by the full size 1.6 this is a super cute mini version in a square shape. Still practical and this bag comes with a long crossbody strap.

4. 0.3 in Midnight Black Suede

The bum bag trend is going nowhere, and Alexandra K has a great vegan option for this trend. In super supple vegan suede and beautifully detailed, this is a great trend piece we would treasure for seasons to come.

5. 1.5 in Vanilla Pudding

The bag that started it all, the 1.5 is a great size for an everyday handbag as well as a work bag. With a great width fitting up to A4 and a laptop. We have picked the lovely Vanilla Pudding shade, because doesn’t it sound adorable?

6. 1.8 in Misty Grey

This tote is perfect for that impromptu shopping trip, for work, or big enough for a weekend away. It looks achingly chic in this grey soft leather, we need this asap.

7. Sophie in Rocky Mountain

Top handle bags are a staple for the season ahead, and why not pick up the Sophie. Featuring great pockets and super soft lining this is a trendy option perfect for us.

8. 0.6 in Burgundy Suede

Look how perfect this crossbody bag is. Just big enough for the essentials, we love this super autumnal berry shade of suede.

9. 3.6 Backpack in Caramello Suede

For the days where we have too much to carry, we can still look stylish with the 3.6 Backpack. Practical in black leather, but we love the flair of the Caramello Suede.
