We’ve never been quite sure where the old adage of fashion before function came from, but here at Thalé Blanc we don’t subscribe to that particular brand of fashion theory. In fact, one of the reasons our lead designer Deborah Sawaf created the first Thalé Blanc Pochette was to marry these two ideals into one extraordinarily beautiful and useful piece.
But even as our collection has expanded, we’ve never forgotten that initial idea. And no other piece of our Fall 2012 collection better exemplifies this marriage of fashion and function better than Buddy. A wallet that is both parts showpiece and everyday essential, Buddy has room for everything you’ll need to get through your busy day, including slots for cash and credit cards, an ID window, and an attachable leather and gold chain.
Subtly luxurious with its mix of hornback and suede, this beauty comes in three magnificently rich shades: black, brown, or navy. Perfect for the woman who at all times demands that her wallet match her handbag.
We personally have been carrying Buddy as a clutch for our mid-day coffee runs, letting the gold chain dangle sweetly around our wrist. Buddy, bringing new meaning to the term fashion meets function.
