There are regular, pretty leather handbags, and then there's the Tyler Alexandra Spring 2012 collection, with some of the most opulent, gorgeous pieces that you can truly fall in love with. The ultimate in arm candy, these totes and clutches cost a pretty penny, but might just be worth it.
Designer Tyler Ellis (daughter of Perry Ellis, a designer famous for his immaculately tailored sportswear) says she wants to make pieces that are "based on classical elegance with a modern edge." Well, she certainly achieved the timeless feel she was going for. These are not your typical "It" bags; they will never go out of style. A bold statement, I know, but I stand by it.
The Tyler Alexandra Spring 2012 collection is made up of luxurious skins like crocodile, calfskin and lizard. That explains the prices (some of the bags cost an incredible $6,500), but if you can afford to spend thousands on bags, this is a collection you should splurge on.
