Thomas Lyte is an English luxury lifestyle brand with a whimsical sense of humour, specialising in beautiful quality leather and silver and with their own leather and silver workshops in London. Everything here is handcrafted and just that little bit different, from the fuchsia ‘love notes’ envelope to the cognac coat wallet lined in plum jacquard silk - for anyone who likes their accessories to be totally individual this is a real treasure trove to browse.
I have to say that my favourite pieces are the plum leather clutch purse lined in printed fuchsia jacquard silk, the fuchsia patent hoop keyring (which would be instantly visible at the bottom of my handbag) the Henshaw black patent leather tote – again lined in fuchsia silk, and finally the cognac leather weekender which I would give to my eldest son for Christmas and is just him to a T. Having said that if you stay long enough you’re bound to find several pieces you won’t want to be without as well as some very reasonably priced gifts. Every item is beautifully packaged and gift wrapped when it’s sent out to you so this online retailer, offering worldwide shipping and express delivery in the UK may be going to solve a lot of your problems this Christmas.
Thomas Lyte’s Burlington Arcade Store has just opened so if you’re passing or you feel the need to see, feel and touch the collection rather than view it on your screen you can visit them there, and also take a good look at their new Eliza tote which has literally just launched, and comes in black, cognac, mustard and plum. Be careful, you’ll probably want to make it yours………..
