Alexandra de Curtis, the visionary designer behind the bespoke brand of luxury leather handbags out of her hometown of Rome, Italy wanted to do something no other bag designers have focused on: a beautiful bag that is as light as a Starbucks Venti Latte!
During her seven years of working for one of London’s top advertising agencies, Alexandra has carried her fair share of heavy bags—to work, meetings, the gym, and even to meet up with friends for happy hour. She longed to find a bag that was both lightweight and retained a minimalist geometric style.
It was not until she discovered a leather shop in Rome when she stumbled upon double-sided premium leather, which is extremely supple and lightweight. Alexandra further innovated her design by eliminating the traditional lining, interior pockets, and metal fittings to reduce the weight of her bags while providing leather pouches for each bag to keep valuables and cosmetics organized!
The result is a collection of ultra-soft and light bags that are only the weight of a Starbuck latte! They come in architectural shapes, with a buttery texture, and in sumptuous colors that you can carry from day to night!
While many bags make each season’s “it bag” list for their logos or their exotic skins, a bag by Alexandra de Curtis will be your go-to bag this fall for all the right reasons!
