It starred inconspicuously on several TV shows.

A leather bag that hung on the back of the door on the set of The Big Bang Theory, making appearances also on Entourage, Mom, Pretty Little Liars and Two and a Half Men.

Then the stars latched onto it: Kaley Cuoco, Angelina Jolie, Debi Mazar and Emmanuelle Chriqui, to name a few.

Hammitt Los Angeles CEO Tony Drockton will be at Raleigh’s first Hammitt Trunk Show at Main & Taylor Friday and Saturday, March 18-19.

The line was launched in 2008 by founder Stephenie Hammitt, looking for a bag to carry to a barbecue. “The inspiration for the brand overall is that casual chic west coast lifestyle,” Drockton says. “We like to say our bags go from day to night, from coffee to cocktails.”

It’s Drockton’s first time doing a trunk show in Raleigh. He’ll head here after a stop at the Main & Taylor in Greensboro. But he gets regular feedback from cities all over the country—Charleston, Atlanta, Miami, Seattle and San Diego.

“They love our line—that it’s consistently recognizable from far away without a logo because of our signature riveted detail and our timeless silhouette and design,” he says. “They love the soft supple leather and the functionality both inside the bag, with all of the pockets, and also the functionality outside the bag with the convertible cross-body strap.”

Drockton revealed a new addition to the Hammitt line, out in the fall of 2016: footwear.

We can’t wait.
