Tylie Malibu goes tribal with this Ikat Wayfarer shopper.
Ikat is a traditional woven material created by tribes in Cambodia, Thailand, and parts of South and Central America. I'm not sure how diligently Tylie Malibu followed the ancient techniques, but the finished product is gorgeous. I love it when designers choose materials like this, as they're affordable without appearing budget. The tight weave also makes Ikat tough as nails, which is a real advantage if you're using the Wayfarer as an everyday purse.
The shoulder straps are also drawing me in. Don't they just look like they'd feel heavenly on your shoulder? It’s one of those rare oversized bags that I actually want to carry around all day.
The Wayfarer truly is massive, which is both a blessing and a curse. It's great to find a bag big enough for holding everything you could ever want and need, but it's also going to take a lot to keep organized. With only a single zippered pocket inside, expect to spend a lot of time searching for your keys and wallet.
While I'm griping, what is with that tassel? I suppose it makes the Wayfarer feel a bit more boho, but in red it’s sticking out like a sore thumb. I'm afraid I'd get the scissors out and get rid of it quick smart!
The Ikat Wayfarer isn't perfect, but for $245 anyone bemoaning the demise of the oversized shopper is likely to be seriously tempted.
