Susan Alexandra Ma Cherie Bag available at SHOPBOP.com
* Drawing inspiration from such unique things as Surrealism, gummy candy, and her own adopted home of NYC’s Chinatown, designer Susan Alexandra has a clear love for life in all its variety. That’s precisely what shines through in her line of cheerful, hyper-saturated handbags, which have the uncanny ability to turn any bad day into a really good one. Despite the easy-going feel of Alexandra’s designs, not one is without quality: each Susan Alexandra bag is painstakingly handcrafted using hundreds of colorful beads. The results are, as the designer herself says, magic!
