Each Wyld Empyre piece I design is created to be a museum-quality accessory that represents its owner’s heritage and unique style as they carry it today and then pass down to future generations as an heirloom.

Lauren Blake, Wyld Empyre founder and chief designer, has announced that her new fine exotic skin handbag line will officially launch on October 4, in Fort Worth, and October 10, in Dallas. The fall 2018 collection will be showcased at both events, with handbags available. At the Dallas event, Wyld Empyre is collaborating with Kris Ammon, of KCA Design. If patrons desire, they can commission a custom, hand-painted illustration on their Wyld Empyre handbag. Wyld Empyre will also be at the TCU Jamie Dixon Women’s Basketball Clinic on October 23, where handbags will be available, along with orders for custom KCA Design illustrations.

Wyld Empyre pieces are available for purchase at each event, as well as online now, or at upcoming trunk shows.

Ms. Blake is a studio and digital artist, sculptor, fashion stylist, and handbag designer. Her Wyld Empyre designs are influenced by her love of style, art, and her far-flung travels. The launch collection, “Botticelli’s Muse,” was inspired by Sandro Botticelli’s paintings “Birth of Venus” and “Primavera.” Her spring/summer 2019 collection, “Gypsy Garden,” will be available in late 2018/early 2019.

“Wyld Empyre is the culmination of my lifelong love affair with fashion and art, and my passion for sculpting,” said Ms. Blake. “After years of graphic design, it’s a dream come true to create art with my hands again. Each Wyld Empyre piece I design is created to be a museum-quality accessory that represents its owner’s heritage and unique style as they carry it today and then pass down to future generations as an heirloom.”

Ms. Blake designs her company’s pieces in her native Texas, works closely with US-based purveyors of responsibly-sourced exotic skins, and directs the Manhattan-based workshop as they bring each handcrafted piece to life. Wyld Empyre handbags are handcrafted in limited quantities; additional quantities and custom orders are available via a wait list (for details, contact hello@wyldempyre.com).
