Review of VIP Black/Brushed Gold Red Zip -Large

The VIP Black/Brushed Gold Red Zip -Large is what drew me to Hammitt. I saw it on a FB ad and knew I HAD to have it. This bag is wonderful becuase you can carry it as a clutch, a shoulder bag or a crossbody. The leather is luscious and soft. It is a perfect piece to add to my growing Hammitt collection!

Review of VIP Mendocino Medium

This is stunner of a bag! The leather is a really cool texture and the color is perfect for the season. I am totally hooked on Hammitt!

Love the bag. Color...ok

Love the size and the features. I bought this because it looked like it was going to be gold. I was disappointed when the bag came in to find that the top was more of a brass/orange. I also don’t feel like the red/burgundy was true to the photo.
