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
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.
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?
