I love the work that Alaya Cholprasertsuk does! Her purses are darling and because I'm vegan I choose not to kill anything for my purses. I have a number of her purses.
I purchased this handbag to go with a navy velvet outfit and also with a navy cashmere and silk outfit. Both outfits are dressy, but not what I would call "formal." The bag works perfectly not only with both blue outfits, but there is also enough brown in the purse to go with a chocolate silk outfit, too. The hand beading is so beautiful. The blue cotton is a very thick material so it is a very substantial piece. The bag is larger than I had anticipated, but that is a good thing for me, as I carry a lot of items in my purse, and they all fit in this bag. Thank you so much, Wahyu, you are an incredible artist.
I adore this bag! It's so cute and feminine. It's very, very delicate, so I will use it sparingly so I don't crush the beautiful weave. I love the silky brocade fabric which adds such elegance.
