It has been a little while since we covered Lockheart on PurseBlog. I almost forgot about them, almost. But almost doesn’t count and when I peeked at the brand’s website this week, I found many bags that brought me right back in.

Few brand try to do intricate detail in any kind of committed way. Sure, some designers dabble here and there, but the majority of collections are made up of mostly basic bags with a few statement pieces sprinkled throughout in order to establish a clear brand identity.

I’ve become a huge fan of Lockheart bags over the past few years and it’s mostly due to the fact that these bags are unlike most others on the market. The bags are highly unique and boast amazing attention to detail.

I wish there were more Lockheart bags available in retail stores. I’ve been thinking this for quite some time now, but, even more lately. I am back at home visiting the family and where I have my “office” set up, every time I glance up, I see my mom’s gorgeous Lockheart Candice Hobo.

Once again, Lockheart comes out with a handbag that is full of amazing detail work. I actually had a chance to see the Lockheart design team in action a few weeks back and I was overwhelmed (in a good way) with all the leathers, the conversations and the absolute love for handbags this team has.

Are there still people out there in Handbagland that are unsure of the idea of brights as neutrals? If so, listen carefully: it’s a really, really good idea. I promise. Have I ever lead you astray before?

I’ve spent the past two days in LA meeting with all sorts of fabulous people in the fashion world. I had a chance to meet with the Lockheart team yesterday and was overwhelmed by their friendliness and openness.

No matter how many of their designs I see, I just can’t get over the lovely intricacies of Lockheart handbags.

I’ve been infatuated with Lockheart bags ever since I saw on in person a few months ago. The Candice Hobo was in our office and I loved so much about it. More than anything, I loved the way the cutouts looked all over the bag.

When we introduced Lockheart on PurseBlog we realized you all were crushing on Lockheart as much as we were. We felt like we found a hidden gem, a designer that deserves so much notice but was just becoming known to us.
