Felix Rey Doris Wristlet | Black Fabric Bow Purse

Posted on: Apr 30

Felix Rey Doris WristletFelix Rey's designs have been so whimsical lately that I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to take them seriously. The oversized hearts, bows, and smiley faces would be perfect for a junior line, but they're a bit harder to accept from a grown-up fashion house. So I'm thrilled to see Felix Rey rein things in a little with this Doris wristlet.

Notice that I said he's reined things in a little. In the black and gold spotted version and the gold cheetah, Felix Rey's wristlet is every bit as silly as I've come to expect. But in basic black we can appreciate the design's subtlety. The bow accent Felix Rey loves so much is less obvious here, a structured bit of folded fabric that is incorporated into the design rather than simply tacked on. It's oversized, but in the same fabric it doesn't seem as ostentatious as it might have been.

All too often wristlets fail on a practical level, but the Doris is a functional filly. Its dimensions are a bit chunkier than the average, and it's appointed with a few usable pockets. That wrist strap is also detachable, so you can remove it and carry the Doris like a clutch.

At $120 the Doris is probably a bit expensive for a fabric wristlet, but it also shows Felix Rey taking a few steps in the right direction.
