On 26 February, Rivaage Boutique hosted a trunk show for Alexandra Tyler. Exclusive to Rivaage in the Middle East, Tyler Alexandra was born out of designer Tyler Ellis’s desire to create a timeless handbag. His signature style quickly emerged; his designs marry luxurious materials from rich Italian leathers to polished crocodile.
Handmade in Paris, the creation of Ellis’s bags are overseen by the designer and a small team of workers. The matierials used are assiduously sourced materials from the finest materials and lend the bag an aura of exclusivity. Ellis’s creations incorporate discreet interior pockets meant for stashing everyday necessities as well as an unusual zipper, both of which are offset by each bag’s distinct, deep violet-lined pockets, a color the designer has loved since childhood. Architectural in shape as well as subversively sexy, these are head-turning bags with a subtle decadence. They are modern statements on perennially chic classics.
Tyler Alexandra handbags have been featured in US Vogue, the NY Times and Harpers Bazaar US, the bags can be seen on serious fashion players and celebrities including Gabrielle Union, Olivia Munn, Michelle Trachtenberg, Isabelle Fuhrman and Catherine Zeta Jones.
