Franckly Fabulous



If there was a single bag that launched the kelly locke collection, it's the Francke Clutch. I designed and manufactured the first Francke in Buenos Aires, even before I officially launched the line. It's a new take on the classic envelope clutch, using buttery soft Caiman Crocodile and hand-stitch detailing. The original bag was made with The Cross setting: a 10-carat Princess-cut Blue Topaz set in Sterling Silver amidst 64 diamond-cut Onyx stones. I consider this to be one of my signature pieces. The Francke is a classic, understated bag. Yet when paired with The Cross setting, becomes a piece of wearable art (which graced the pages of Vogue Latin America). Fabulous, indeed. Francke Clutch, from $485 to $1,750 (as shown), kellylocke.com

We Heart Leopard


Whether you're on your way to the Bryant Park tents or catching up with friends at the Waverly Inn, the Runway Clutch has got you covered. It's the perfect size — not too big, not too small — that can easily hold a wallet, Blackberry, keys and other essentials (a bar of 70% Valrhona, anyone?). Our favorite version, shown here in printed Baby Hair Calf with Lizard trim, looks equally fabulous with jeans or your latest cocktail frock. Runway Clutch, from $550, kellylocke.com

Weekend in Capri


New for Fall is the Capri Bag, shown here in soft metallic lambskin with glazed Anaconda top handles and trim. The centerpiece of the bag is the natural Agate stone ring, which riffs on the Agate feet of the other bags in the collection. This is the perfect carry-all for everything from a laptop to an ├╝ber-chic gym bag to a weekender. Capri Bag, from $695, kellylocke.com
