Will Leather Goods was founded by actor William Adler in Oregon in 1981. After years of producing high-quality, handcrafted leather accessories sold in notable stores like Saks, Neiman's and Barneys, last year Adler hit LA to open his brand's first flagship on Abbot Kinney. Since then, Will has debuted a host of creative projects, like its pricey collaboration with Disney's The Lone Ranger.
Powered by Adler's love of the legendary series, the just-launched capsule both salutes the past and celebrates the Johnny Depp-graced) redux by offering heirloom-worthy styles with a modern price tag. Highlights from the five-piece range include $550 carpet bags made from vintage rugs, $450 horsehair belts, $195 ornate tooled billfold wallets and $2,000 belts.
What makes these belts worthy of dropping two grand, you ask? For one, they were handmade by Native American chief Gabriel GoodBuffalo using traditional techniques and patterns. They also feature vegetable-tanned Italian leather, sterling silver hardwear and individually-placed glass beads. Stop by the Venice shop today to marvel over and, if you've got the dough, purchase the collection.
