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. Ok, not to say that other handbags *don’t* showcase attention to detail, but I think you follow what I am saying.
I am used to Lockheart bags being soft, feminine and a bit bohemian. Just as I began to expect this from this brand, they throw a complete curve-ball. While I was a bit shocked at first, I spent some serious time looking and the bag and began to appreciate it for everything that it is.
By far, the color and hardware on the Lockheart Madeline Leather Messenger Bag were the aspects on this bag that drew me in. The textured green leather isn’t dark and it’s obviously not light, but somewhere right in the middle. As I looked closer I noticed the zipper trim along the bag. You might be a bit nervous about this, but trust me when I say, you won’t catch your skin or clothes on it. I was in the Lockheart offices a few months back and had the opportunity to see (and touch) some of the designs they were working on – including this zipper trim. The shoulder strap with its 9″ drop is fabulous, but so is the adjustable crossbody strap. This bag has edgy yet chic written all over it. Once again, this brand is one I encourage to continue trying new things because they seem to know how to do it right. Buy through Saks for $435.
