CALIFORNIA’S WYLDE CHILD.
Though Paula Thomas jumped the pond seven years ago to settle in Los Angeles, the head designer of Thomas Wylde is still seduced by London. It’s with this sensibility that she approaches her diffusion line Wylde by Thomas Wylde, and the brand’s first flagship store on L.A.’s Melrose Avenue (both debuting early in 2013). “Having my own store will show everyone several dimensions of what [the line] does,” says Thomas. “It had to be in Los Angeles—[my brand] was born here, and it’s where it should grow up!” thomaswylde.com.
