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. Detail is just too difficult to do in design after design, right?
Well, if you’re the team behind Lockheart, you’re apparently not listening to the conventional handbag wisdom. The brand’s attention to detail is unparalleled at its price point, and Lockheart’s designers seem to usually know just when to stop before they make something that’s too fussy. They’ve done a great job (again) with the Lockheart Zipcode Estelle Clutch.
Sometimes I think that this sort of look is what Juicy Couture is going for but never manages to accomplish. The clutch manages to successful harmonize a lot of disparate elements (zipper trim, studs, quilting, a bright color) into something that could compliment a lot of different looks. I would love to carry this with a black or charcoal dress and interesting shoes and jewelry. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $325.
