When most bagistas think of skulls, they probably think of Alexander McQueen. While this designer is very well known for its skulls (particularly the skull clutches), there is another designer I still think of whenever skulls are mentioned. Does anyone remember Thomas Wylde? Whatever happened to that designer? It seems like they just fell off the face of the planet. I checked their website and there are new collections. So why am I not seeing them around anymore? Oh well, I suppose it doesn’t matter. The only reason I bring it up is because the bag you see here reminded me of Thomas Wylde (rather than Alexander McQueen). Meet the Frye Skull Studded Tote!
The ultimate “Campus” cross-body bag is here. I finished up my schooling years ago from University and I can tell you the petite cross-body style is the ultimate essential. Think about it.. you have your school tote with all your books in it, which weighs on average at any given moment somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 pounds. Why they don’t have download-able textbooks yet gets me. So when you want to run to the lavatory, go on a coffee run or go grab lunch, your not going to want to lug all that around. And sometimes a simple wallet isn’t going to do the trick. Have you ever tried carrying a drink carrier while trying to hold a wallet and an umbrella in the wind? (Yea, I live in Seattle) Not a fun experience. If I was still in school, the Frye Campus Mini Cross-body would be on the top of my list!
Frye… handbags? Hmm, I’m not sure how I feel about that. What I mean is that when I think of Frye, I think of leather boots. Maybe even some vintage looking oxfords. I know they have been making handbags for a little while now. I guess I’m just having a little bit of trouble getting used to the idea. But perhaps the piece you see here will help warm me up to the idea a little more. Introducing the Frye Cameron Magazine Crossbody Bag!
