Paula Thomas is at it again, bringing us yet another Thomas Wylde clutch with a skull theme. However, this time around she has put a little bit of a spin on the skull theme with the new Thomas Wylde Day of the Dead Clutch. This lovely clutch, named for the Mexican (and Latino) holiday that is celebrated by many people all over the world, is covered with tiny skull-shaped studs. This fold-over style clutch is composed of distressed black leather, something Thomas Wylde handbags are known for. What I find most interesting about this clutch, however, is the double chain strap. The two straps are separate from one another and completely removable. The straps are also of different lengths. So you can wear the clutch with two straps, one strap, or none at all.
When it comes to the Thomas Wylde Day of the Dead Clutch, I find myself having some mixed feelings. I love the simple, unstructured shape and the fold-over styling. I also like the tiny skull studs. But when I look at this clutch, I also think it could have been a little bit better. Instead of gold hardware, I would have liked to have seen this clutch with silver or gunmetal hardware. I’m not sure what it is, but for some reason, when I think of rocker-chic I think of black paired with silver or gunmetal hardware. But maybe that’s just a generation thing.
The Thomas Wylde Day of the Dead Clutch retails for $1,500. You can pick one up here at NET-A-PORTER.COM.
