NBA Chic: Hammitt debuts a luxe handbag in Lakers colors

May 2, 2011 |  7:36 am


If you're looking for a way to show your undying devotion to the Lakers this playoff season but you're not the type to sport a baggy Kobe Bryant jersey, Hammitt has a suggestion.

The L.A. accessories brand has launched the limited-edition Home Team handbag to celebrate Kobe and the boys.

The white leather satchel, which features a shoulder strap and wrist loops, is reminiscent of a ball in shape, and features bright, 24-karat gold-plated metalwork — including flat studding and Hermes-style "H" logos anchoring the wrist loops — and a purple suede lining (which we heartily endorse relegating to the bag's roomy insides).

The Home Team bag, available exclusively at Cami in Manhattan Beach, is a cool $725. But if looking like a baller when sitting courtside is your goal, it'll get you at least halfway there.
