As one of the oldest luxury fashion houses in the world, Hermès is known throughout the world for its impeccable bags and accessories. Hermès’ handbags have become the favourites of top celebrities and dignitaries everywhere as the brand is a symbol of absolute elegance and opulence.
Started as a company catering to the horse-riding and equestrian business, now Hermès has become a force to be reckoned within the industry. All of the brand’s products are deemed as the most luxurious thing a person can own and all fashion-enthusiasts must have in their designer collections. Let’s take a look at the brand’s famous products below.
The Hermès Birkin Bags
The Hermès Birkin bags were named after the English-French actress, Jane Birkin. These Hermès bags were initially popular only among working woman in executive positions because they are big enough to fit A4 papers and folders. However, in recent years, the Birkin bags have become a staple in the high-fashion industry and everyone, not only working women, are itching to get their hands on this iconic bag.
Materials and Colors of the Birkin Bags
The Hermès Birkin is not meant to be slung over the shoulder and you are supposed to carry it through your arm or by the handles. They are made with various different materials and the price would also depend on the size and the material used to make the Birkin. The types of leather used for the Birkin bags are crocodile, ostrich, alligator, and lizard.
The colours of the Birkin bags vary but there are three colours that have been considered as a classic colour throughout the years: Etoupe, Gold, and Black. Every season Hermès would come out with seasonal colours for their handbags like the Malachite and the Bamboo for the spring/summer collections.
Why the Hermès Birkin Bag is Worth Investing
Many experts have expressed that the Hermès Birkin bags are a better investment than stocks of gold. This is due to the fact that the Birkin bags have outperformed the two in the last 35 years. So, for those who are looking to resell their Hermès Birkin bags, the return rate would be higher than stocks or gold. However, even if you don’t plan to let go of your Birkin bags, you should still consider investing in them because they will remain as a status symbol for the elite for the years to come.
The Hermès Kelly Bag
The Hermès Kelly bag is another popular bag from the French fashion house. Although it has a similar silhouette to the Birkin bag, the Hermès Kelly bags only have one handle while the Birkin would usually have two. Another distinctive difference is the straight front flap of the Kelly as well as Kelly’s strap. For many who can’t handle the Hermès Birkin’s weight, the Kelly bags would be their alternative.
There are two different models of the Kelly bag available today: the Sellier and the Retourne. The Sellier features stitching on the exterior of the bag while the Retourne, a newer design, are stitched from the inside. The Hermès Kelly bags also use the same materials as the Birkin bags and they do come in various colours as well but perhaps the most popular colour for the Hermès Kelly is the classic Hermès Orange.
The Hermès Constance Bag
Those who prefer a more classic design should consider the Hermès Constance bag. Named after the designer’s newborn daughter, the Constance features a bold H clasp in the front, made from palladium. Making one Constance bag would usually take 14 long hours because the stitches need to be done by hand on all the 50 pieces of leather needed to complete the bag. Along with the Hermès Evelyn bag, the Constance sometimes would lose the spotlight to the Kelly and the Birkin. However, the Constance and the Evelyn bags should also be taken into consideration as your first Hermès item.
Other than handbags, Hermès also offers accessories like belts, scarves, Apple Watch straps, ties, shoes, and fragrances. It also offers a collection of jewellery for men and women, categorized into gold, silver, enamel, leather, lacquered metal, and horn jewellery. Aside from that, Hermès provides stationery like notebooks, office accessories, and luxurious writing instruments and accessories.
Funnily enough, the French fashion house also has a collection catering to babies and children. The baby gifts collection includes placemats bibs, beach towels, baskets, blankets, duffel bags, napkins, flat case, soft toys, sleep sacks, pillows, booties, school bags, and more.
