Until recently, I had not been keeping up with Tom Ford. So what changed? Okay, I will admit that it had something to do a certain piece of jewelry that popped up on the news feeds. Funny how a little bit of controversy can put someone in the spotlight. But don’t worry, I will forgive him. After all, his handbags have always been so lovely. It was actually quite refreshing to purposefully make my way to the official Tom Ford website to see what was new handbag-wise. There were tons of styles both new and old, but what caught my eye was the Tom Ford Alix Crossbody Bag.
The Alix styles have been around for a little while, but I still like them. I think it is the padlocks! This particular clutch/crossbody bag features a zipper detail that wraps around the bag. The zipper pull folds over sideways and it is secured to the flap of the bag with a tiny padlock. Looks pretty secure, huh? Well guess what. It has absolutely nothing to do with opening or closing this bag. Yep, the flap is actually secured with a magnet and the padlock serves no function outside of adornment. Nevertheless, it looks pretty darn cute. I love the color too. The light blue looks great with the gold tone hardware.
Retails for $1990 over at Neiman Marcus!
