Handbag connoisseur and director and owner of Hong Kong-based leather accessories brand Laykh, Kashish Hemnani flies all around the world to find the most exquisite materials for her handbags, which are crafted in Hong Kong. She shares with The List all the essential leather in her life.

1. High Waisted Leather Skirt
Leather transforms a basic pencil skirt giving your look an extra kick. Styled with a chiffon top and stilettos at night or a white shirt and pointed pumps by day, you can’t go wrong!

2. Oscar de la Renta “Zucca” Pumps
These are my go to shoes! They are deceptively comfortable, made in Beige Linen with Navy Blue Crocodile trimming. Just like a classic pair of jeans—incredibly versatile!  

3. Mac Studio Finish Concealer
I never leave home without this little pot of gold. It’s a quick and easy fix that instantly brightens up your complexion and dark circles. It lasts all day and is compact enough to fit into even the tiniest evening clutches.

4. Gold, Diamond and Pink Sapphire Earrings
These were the first earrings I designed. I bought the pink sapphires at the Hong Kong jewelry show and designed them with my family jeweler in India with the stones in mind. They make a statement, but are deceptively light with the help of the chain that goes over the top of your ear.

5. Laykh “Fareesa” Python Shoulder Bag
This is the perfect day bag: It’s fashionable and functional, slouchy yet structured. Gorgeous python scales run down the bag and the gunmetal finish of the chain doesn’t clash with any shade of jewelry making this bag incredibly versatile. I can carry it with jeans, shorts or a dress—it moves easily from the boardroom to the dance floor!

6. Sally Hansen French Tip Pen
I love a French manicure, it adds instant elegance and sophistication to your look. With this pen, I can give myself a flawless French tip in under 10 mins.
