The collaboration will pair Hammitt's sleek silhouettes and Whyte Studio's signature branded straps, a street-ready nod to the trending athleisure movement. 

Founded in 2008, Hammitt designs leather handbags seasoned with their signature rivet detail and industry-leading functionality. Beloved by celebrities including Jamie Chung, Candace Cameron Bure, Jaime King, and Hannah Godwin of The Bachelor franchise, Hammitt is quickly becoming a pop culture favorite. 

Melbourne Fashion Week won't be Hammitt's first appearance in the Australian market. Last year, their bags debuted on The Iconic, one of Australia's top premium online retailers.  

"We're thrilled to partner with Bianca and Whyte Studio," says Tony Drockton, Hammitt's founder and Chairman. "Her style embodies everything we love about the Hammitt woman. She leaves her own mark and embraces every opportunity to be bold." 

Whyte Studio by designer Bianca Whyte is a premium brand that embodies creativity and empowerment through iconic pieces designed to enhance individual style.

Whyte Studio produces capsule collections built and designed on the tenets of tailoring and impeccable detailing. Using only high-quality and hand selected fabrics, Whyte Studio creates transitional investment pieces. Inspired by the designer's time as a professional motocross athlete in Australia, Whyte Studio evokes confidence through its trademark style: tailored, sports and unique detailing that's built to last.

"We can't think of a more exciting brand to launch our first collaboration with, HAMMITT embodies LA cool and casual style I love," says Bianca Whyte, who spent her early design career in Los Angeles working with the Kardashians on the Kardashian Kollection.
