Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery….

It is often said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, however there are exceptions to the rule! We have recently come across a company based in Munich also calling itself Lilac Blue, using a similar typeface and colour scheme, and coincidentally selling Hermes handbags.   PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS COMPANY HAS ABSOLUTELY NO CONNECTION WITH LILAC BLUE LONDON AND WE DO NOT ENDORSE THEM OR THEIR PRODUCTS IN ANY WAY.     The original is the best, and that is us: Lilac Blue London Ltd Rembrandt House 5 Vigo Street London W1S 3HB +44 (0)845 224 8876

Looking ahead to Autumn

Looking ahead to Autumn

I know the skies are still blue and the sun is still shining (mostly!), and that some of you have yet to go on holiday, but here in the UK it feels like autumn is slowly creeping up on us.  The mornings are a little fresher, the air a little damper and if you’re up and about early there’s that indefinable scent of autumn drifting around.  A new season brings a change of bags, moving away from the bright blues, yellows and pinks towards something a little more subdued and toned down to match the falling leaves and changing light. There are some great colours around which are particularly good for this time of year – Saffron, Malachite, Feu, Etoupe, Gold, Olive Green and Ebene to name but a few – take a look at our new website and let us...

Small Bag, Big Impact – the Tiny Birkin

Small Bag, Big Impact – the Tiny Birkin

These gorgeous little bags were only produced by Hermes for a very short time in 2012 and as a result are extremely rare and hugely sought after. So rare that as I write this, one of the two bags that we have has been snapped up before we’ve even had time to tell you about it.  If you were after one in eye popping lime then I’m afraid it’s too late BUT we do have another in Feu – a brighter shade of the classic Hermes orange with a little more red in it  – which will help you stand out from the crowd.  They may be small (14.5 cm x 9 cm x 3.5 cm), but they are perfectly formed and certainly have room for your handbag...

Glorious Green

Glorious Green

The most wanted shade in a Croc bag this year (and possibly forever) is the gorgeous Emerald Green.   The colour is incredibly hard to achieve on a Croc skin and the process takes up to three times longer than any other, making one of these bags exceptionally hard to find. Emerald gemstones have long fascinated people with their intense, radiant and brilliant colour, it’s considered to be the colour of life and for centuries the colour of beauty and constant love.  What could be more perfect than this translated to an Hermes Kelly Sellier?

The Hermes Garden Party

The Hermes Garden Party

This great casual tote bag is becoming increasingly popular and for an Hermes bag  is a relatively “easy” buy and a great addition to your Hermes collection.  Available in all leather or a combination of leather and canvas the design is simple and clean yet it is instantly recognizable as an Hermes bag.   With a snap closure at the top the roomy interior expands by unbuttoning the sides for extra carrying capacity and is perfect for carrying all of your daily essentials in effortless style – we think it makes a fabulous “dress down” bag.

There’s red and there’s Rouge Braise….

There’s red and there’s Rouge Braise….

This has to be the most striking of the reds that Hermes delivers – Rouge Braise, which translates literally to “red embers” is a fantastic bright red, sometimes referred to as Ferrari Red.  It’s a real head turner of a colour and will most certainly get you noticed!  Seen at its best in Shiny Crocodile, Lilac Blue have a gorgeous 35cm Birkin with Palladium Hardware.
