Handbagdesigner-Interview: Alexandra Bee


Alexandra Buffardi de Curtis gründete 2006 das Label Alexandra Bee mit einer Kollektion an Wickeltaschen. Nachdem sie sich einige Jahre um ihre Familie gekümmert hat entwirft die Designerin mit italienischen und deutschen Wurzeln seitdem hochwertige Handtaschen. Auch Hollywoodstars wie Courtney Cox, Angelina Jolie and Naomi Watts wurden schon mit Alexandras Taschen gesehen. Mehr über das Label und die Designerin erfahrt ihr heute in unserem Interview:


Where are you from?
I am half Italian, half German.

What is the idea behind the name?
The name was born out of my full name Alexandra Buffardi de Curtis, but I wanted something memorable and more fun that I could associate with my first collection of baby changing bags so I added the bee symbol.

What is the inspiration behind your collection and how or why did you start designing bags?

This is the press release for my latest collection:

Alexandra de Curtis launches her SS10 collection at Spazio Lattuada in Milan introducing a new line of minimalist and elegant handbag designs using fine Italian calfskin and suede, and South African ostrich skin. The collection features six handbag styles, a wallet and a coin purse that combine innovative shapes with high-end design and modern functionality.

Alexandra's signature is the distinctive interior of her bags; the many pockets are designed to carry all womens essentials: blackberry, i-pod, lip-gloss, mobile, passport, and even an extra pair of shoes! The collection is available in Rose, Indian Pink, Indigo Blue, White, Brandy, Brown and Black.

Alexandra knows that women want style and ease of use from a handbag. For that reason, her collection carries subtle design elements such as hidden pockets and luxurious suede-lined interiors. The size of the bags ensures that there is enough room for necessities and more.

Passionate about design from an early age, Alexandra de Curtis started the company in May '06, following the discovery of a gap in the market for stylish baby bags. Following the yummy mummy trend, she created her first line with working women and mothers in mind, and drew inspiration from her many travels and friends.

This is her second collection after taking some time off to be with her family, following the birth of her daughter Mia. Even though this new collection is more fashion forward, every piece is named after a baby girl born to a friend in the last year. With each piece hand crafted in Rome, Italy, Alexandras handbags assure the highest standard of quality.
Lovers of Alexandra Bee include Hollywood
s A-list stars - Courtney Cox, Angelina Jolie and Naomi Watts - as well as socialites, City high-flyers and busy mums alike.
  
Since when do you run your own collection?
Alexandra Bee was born in 2006.


Do you exhibit on trade fairs?
I have exhibited at Spazio Lattuada in Milan, Pure London, Accessories the Show in NYC.
