I first came across Hammitt Los Angeles handbags while working over on our sister site, BagThatStyle. If you frequent that site, you know that we often post about celebs from Gossip Girl. And, if you are a Gossip Girl fan, I wouldn’t be surprised if you might be able to guess which character carried a leopard print Hammitt Los Angeles bag on the show. If you guessed Jessica Szohr, you were right. So, as soon as I saw her carry the Hammitt Los Angeles Westwood Leopard-Print Calf Hair Satchel, I began to look around a bit more and investigate the line.
Detailing you will find on just about every Hammitt Los Angeles bag is studding, large studding. It is this large studding that I’ve taken a liking to on these bags. The Hammitt Los Angeles Montana Signature Studded Leather Messenger Bag has the studding that I am talking about as well as a completely different shape than the lines more well known satchels. This bag is made from vegetable-dyed brown or black leather and is adorned with gold-plated hardware. I love this messenger for its hint of both urban and rural cool. In fact, if I were in the market for a messenger bag, this would be it. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $585.
