The eye-catching Alex handbag by Roman designer Federica Berardelli is a great example of classic Italian craftsmanship updated with quirky contemporary design. Berardelli, who has lived in Rome all her life, combines influences from her Italian heritage with inspirations from her international travels.
Beautifully created from fine leather, the Alex bag has simple lines and a traditional shape made modern by the addition of Berardelli’s signature eye motif. Handcrafted in bronze, the eye was conceived in collaboration with jewellery designer Flaminia Barosini and speaks to Berardelli’s idea of a woman with a unique and strong personality. Available in three sizes and a variety of colours, the bag is equipped with a detachable shoulder strap.
