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.

Hammitt Los Angeles Messenger Bag
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.

    I have two Hammitt Bags purchased when the owner was on her own a few years ago. The bags are very cute, but I find them bulky and cumbersome. I don’t know how they are now. I will say that I had the worst customer service dealing with Hammitt, so it has turned me off the line now for good.

      I would welcome you to try our customer service again. Our goal is to have the best in our industry and the feedback from our fans says just that. I would even offer to trade out your older styles for something newer to make you a Hammitt raving fan….:)

    if i were taller than 5′ 1″, i’d consider this bag; but i’m afraid it would be too much for my petite-ness!

    The handle on this doubles through itself. It allows you to carry it as a shoulder bag as well. As a shoulder bag it would be considered on the small side. Look on their Web site, how it looks on Kelly Ripa, I understand she is is only 2″ taller than you. I know there is a picture on line somewhere.
