One of our favorite trends for fall is hair calf, and we just go crazy when designers dye it, print it and emboss it.

Lucikly, Aimee Kestenberg does all three with her newest Alexis collection of chain-handle bags. And printing hair calf with a non-animal print like ikat? Genius.

And if their sheer beauty isn’t enough, rest assured that these bags are as functional as they are pretty.

First, the bottoms expand so you can actually fit stuff into them. Second, there is a built-in wallet with credit card slots inside so you don’t need to stuff your own mega wallet in there (are you still sporting a huge “George Costanza wallet?”), and third, the adjustable chain can be worn three ways/lengths.
