It’s in the Bag
Classic shapes with a touch of luxury edge: that’s what local handbag brand Laykh is all about. Hong Kong-based designer and founder Kashish Hemnani sources her leathers and exotic skins from around the world, yet each bag is handcrafted by a team of local artisans here in the SAR. This season she’s drawn inspiration from four stylish Hongkongers, including fashion blogger Christing Chang (christingc.com).
“Christing Bag,” $5,850, www.laykh.com. Follow www.facebook.com/Laykh for news on their upcoming pop-ups around town.

This may sound silly coming from a shopping columnist, but I rarely shop. Sure, I replace necessary items after I spill red wine or steak juice on myself, but I really have to love a new bag before I’m willing to throw down the dough. Is this what maturity feels like? Or am I just rocking lots of loved-to-death bags?
