About Alexandra Knight
Formerly a fashion editor and stylist with Conde Nast for eight years, where she infused her creative vision into influential magazines such as Vogue and Vanity Fair, Alexandra Knight has proven that her imaginative flair transcends photos and print and can be realized, and owned, by those in search of a unique statement.
"Lead me not into temptation. I can get there all by myself," is the motto of fashion-savvy women everywhere who have discovered, and been seduced by, Alexandra Knight's chic, customized handbags and accessories. Her stylish clientele includes red carpet regulars such as Sandra Bullock, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Hilary Swank (who carried one of Knight's bags on the night she won the Oscar for "Million Dollar Baby") and royalty as well as socialites like the high-priestess of the best-dressed list, Lynn Wyatt. Knight's creations have been covered and praised in countless publications from Vogue, Vanity Fair and WWD to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today.
Her handmade pieces come with over 200 exotic skin options such as python, lizard, ostrich and alligator and in staggering array of signature shades from black and white zebra alligator to gold and silver wash finishes. Knight is dedicated to wish fulfillment...if she doesn't have exactly what you want she'll color-match with anything.
Although her collection includes in-stock items for sale, Knight's hallmark is to work privately with her clients (either in-person or through her website) and allow them to have a hand in the design process to create exquisite one-of -a-kind, made-to-order pieces. In addition to accessories, she designs custom coats in sumptuous fur, alligator and lush shearling. And it's not just an all-girls club, Knight also offers her BCK line, which is small accessories for men and stemmed from the demand from sartorial gentlemen who appreciate customization as much as the women.
For all of its contemporary appeal, Alexandra Knight's collection evokes the days when ateliers throughout Paris were flourishing with designers who skillfully attended to each stitch and every nuance with intensity and masterminded individualized creations for their patrons. And in keeping with her dedication to this legacy of discreet luxury, Knight's forms are always classic...there is no hardware and logos have been banished. This kind of simplicity requires that every detail be perfect and that she start with only the most flawless skins.
At a time when even the most expensive couture lines are mass-produced, Alexandra Knight remains devoted to collaborating with her sophisticated clientele so that together, they craft timeless, iconic pieces that are destined to become collectors' items.
