Hi Everyone: I received a call from the Mulberry Store at Bleecker Stree in NYC yesterday advising that they had three Alexa's in stock for me to see. While I had already ordered my Alexa OS online from Mulberry.com on 1/26 I decided to head over and see the leather on the three bags the store had. Much to my dismay the leather was felt papery and not substantial and the leather on all three bags had no character at all. I left disappointed but hopefull that the leather on my bag which was to be delivered would be fine. Well my packaga arrived today and the leather on my bag is great! Idon't know if you can tell from the photos which were taken in natural light late this afternoon but there is a graininess on the leather used on both the flap and the back of the bag. This is just the type of leather I wanted for my Alexa. I am totally in love and I hope that they make this bag in more colors as I would buy a second. I honestly don't care if I get another bag this year. Without further ado here is Miss Mulberry Alexa OS.
