Sanguine

Sanguine

Sanguine is not a new colour from Hermès but unfortunately it  isn’t one we see much.  Lilac Blue have available a gorgeous 30cm Birkin in Shiny Nilocitus with Palladium Hardware or for something a little different, a Kelly Ghillies.   The images show what a chameleon shade this is – it may be the same colour but depending on the leather it looks completely different.  We would call it an orange red, although it certain lights it looks more coral, in others more red – either way it adds a great pop of colour without being too bright.    If you’d like a gentle introduction to this colour then take a look at the ever popular Club Birkin – subtle shades of grey and white with a discreet burst of Sanguine to bring the bag to...

It’s that time of year again!

It’s that time of year again!

We have the double whammy of Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year close together this year so two very good reasons to look at getting (or being given!) a gorgeous Hermès bag! We all associate both events with the colour red – on Valentine’s Day it is traditional to give red roses symbolizing energy, passion and love, whilst white is also a popular choice, it symbolizes purity, reverence and spiritual love as well as faithfulness.  A combination of the two gives you pink which is another meaningful colour, speaking of affection, sweetness and understanding. Chinese New Year is all about good luck and keeping evil away – red is used as it to represent fire which according to legend will drive off bad luck. People will wear red clothing,...

If you love blue then take a look at Bleu Paradis.

If you love blue then take a look at Bleu Paradis.

Hermès  introduced a new blue for this winter season, the evocatively named “Bleu Paradis”.  Just the name conjures up images of beautiful blue seas and skies and brings back memories of  lovely warm summers, or perhaps if you’re a fan of winter sports you’ll be reminded of crisp white snow and a clear blue sky.   Bleu Paradis is close to the gorgeous Turquoise, but not quite as bright and with a little more of a green undertone. It’s a great shade to brighten up darker days but will carry you effortlessly through into spring and on in to summer as well – truly versatile.  Lilac Blue have available the cutest of all the Kelly bags in this pretty colour, a 25cm in Epsom with Palladium Hardware or if you want the more...

Something special.

Something special.

We are incredibly lucky to have got our hands on this absolutely gorgeous bag – it’s a real rarity and in our opinion could well become a collector’s piece. The Constance has been around since 1959 and is a fantastically practical day and evening bag – the Mini is a beautifully scaled down version, particularly suited for the evening.  This Mini has soft Veau Doblis in Bleu Ocean paired with Togo Leather in Malachite which is a lovely deep green and sets off the main body of the bag, it won’t be here for long so if you’re interested or want to have a chat about anything Hermes related then do contact helene@lilacblue.com or browse...
