Inspired by her Malibu childhood, Los Angeles designer Lisa Popp set out to create a brand that embodies an earthy-glam style back in 2000. Her creation, Tylie Malibu, answered the call for bohemian elegance, bringing us a flirty and carefree style that is both youthful and functional. The most well-known handbags from this designer include those from the Runaway collection. These bags are easily recognized by their square shaped stud embellishments and casual, unstructured shapes. And each Tylie Malibu handbag is handcrafted in Popp’s Santa Monica design studio. Celebrity followers of the brand include Halle Berry, Olivia Wilde, Lindsey Lohan, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Paris Hilton.
I really love discovering new and upcoming designers! And Tylie Malibu definitely hasn’t failed to impress me! I think I’m in love! So who is this Tylie Malibu? The company, which was launched in early 2000, is the brainchild of Lisa Izad. Based out of California, this designer is all about combining that laid back Californian attitude with a feeling of luxury and glamor. Izad says she is inspired by the natural textures of leather and the colors of nature that surround her. What I find most appealing, however, is that the production process for these handbags is all carried out in a single workshop located in Santa Monica, California.
Now all that’s left is to pick a favorite style! Introducing the Tylie Malibu Runaway Rose Suede Hobo! It’s not exactly what I would call a hobo, but there is no doubt that this is one lovely bag! The soft suede gives this bag such a soft look, like something you’ve been treasuring for many years. I love the pyramid studs that cover the front flap pocket and the thin double straps. Plus it is available in a wide range of colors, all perfect for Fall! Be sure to check out the wine, it’s super yummy!
The Tylie Malibu Runaway Rose Suede Hobo is available in Black, Moss, Smokey Gray (shown), Navy, Violet, or Wine (shown). It measures 18″ x 9″ x 3″ and it retails for only $395! Check it out at Nordstrom!
