Thomas Wylde Reservation Bag
Did you hear the news? Paula Thomas, founder and head designer of the Thomas Wylde brand, has actually come out with a handbag that retails for less than $2K. Meet the Thomas Wylde Reservation Bag. True to it’s name, this bag is somewhat reserved (for a Thomas Wylde bag, that is). It offers the perfect balance between tough girl chic and way over-the-top gaudy. What would have otherwise been a basic black leather bag, has been given just enough of a kick with it’s gunmetal studs. Plus, hidden inside, is a cool spider-print lining. It’s no Skull Bag, but overall, I think it’s pretty nice for what it is. My only gripe is that silly-looking tassel on the front. I think I would be tempted to cut it off. Hmm… or would that make it look too plain?
The Thomas Wylde Reservation Bag measures 18.5″ x 13″ x 7″, which is typical of most Thomas Wylde styles (e.g. BIG). It features a flat shoulder strap with braided leather detailing and oversized buckle attachments on each end. The flap top closure secures with a magnet and the backside features a zippered pocket. The bag retails for $1,800 — fairly inexpensive by Thomas Wylde standards.
