Calling all beaded bag stans: your favorite accessory is getting a makeover this summer, courtesy of Susan Alexandra. By now, you\'ve probably already heard the brand\'s origin story. Inspired by the handmade trinkets that line Chinatown storefronts, Alexandra asked shop owner Lisa Deng to create a bag just for her. Now, with Deng as her head of production, Susan Alexandra\'s beaded bags are sold in more than 30 stores around the world, from Shopbop to Opening Ceremony to Need Supply. And her business continues to grow.This week, the beloved bag designer launched a partnership with eyewear brand Warby Parker. For the collaboration, Susan designed a Warby Parker blue cross body bag, created specifically to tote your sunglasses in. Designed after the brand\'s makeshift mascot, the blue-footed booby, the rectangular mini tote uses over 1,000 beads and took 10 hours to create. \"I love the challenge of adopting my vision and aesthetic to different projects,\" Susan Alexandra said in a statement.
