Summer is here and that means bathing suits…and sometimes just not wearing pants! It also means saying goodbye to heavy, cumbersome handbags, whether you’re at a street fair, music festival or even a protest march!
The Alexa Stone pocketed belts accessories collection, launched in 2017, solves these problems with a unique hands-free option. The front and back compartments hold cash, credit cards, smartphones and other essentials.
Designer Alexa Stone got the idea for the line while traveling as a family to distant film locations for her husband’s work. “I noticed that women seemed inevitably relegated to the role of ‘family pack mule,’ laden with enormous bags. I conceived the line as a stylish yet functional way of allowing women to manage their everyday activities from work to errands, date nights, clubbing or weekend fun, travel or attending events, concerts, and music festivals while still sporting a slim silhouette.
Designs are crafted from lambskin leather, suede, or denim in a range of colors including nail polish red, electric white, hot pink, jonquil yellow, brown, indigo and black. Fringe, corset lace ups and hardware closures in antique brass, matte black or gold snaps, swivel clasps, rings, grommets and buckles add interest. The collection ranges from $120 to $385.
