It must be party time.

It must be party time.

We have been inundated with requests recently for evening bags, clutch bags and just small bags in general so I’d thought I’d give you a run down of what’s available at Lilac Blue right now as we head towards the party season. First up are 3 gorgeous Mini Constance bags – the 18cm version is just perfect for carrying all your essentials for a night out – purse, phone, keys, make up etc – and has the added advantage of a strap so can be worn as a cross body bag or it can be carried as a clutch.  Two of our bags are in the highly desirable Veau Doblis (brushed suede) which is just gorgeous to the touch and come in Fuschia or the classic Hermes Orange.  If you think Veau Doblis isn’t for you then try the lovely Bamboo...

So many to choose from…….

If you are looking for an Exotic Skin Birkin then come to us! Lilac Blue are lucky enough to have several of these beauties available at the moment in some gorgeous colours so get in touch and we can tell you all about them. First up is a dreamy Bleu Izmir 30cm Birkin in Shiny Nilocitus with Palladium Hardware – bring back memories of warm summer days and blue seas with this stunning bag. Another gorgeous shade is Bougainvillea, a red with pinky undertones – think of the colour of a ripe watermelon.  Our bag is a 35cm in Matte Croc and has Silver Hardware, it’s absolutely perfect for warming up those darkest of winter days. If you’re after something a little less vibrant then how about a 35cm Vert Fonce?  A wonderful dark green which...

Lovely Preloved

Lovely Preloved

If you want to be the proud owner of one of the most coveted fashion accessories of modern times but simply don’t have the patience to join long waiting lists or the budget that is sometimes required to acquire a new Hermes Birkin or Kelly, then do consider looking at the Preloved market.  There are of course a number of unscrupulous sellers who are keen to part you from your money and will try hard to persuade you that their bag is genuine – generally, the old adage of “if it looks too good to be true, then it is too good to be true” applies. Lilac Blue is a well regarded source for genuine Hermes Birkins and Kellys: we have been supplying these elusive bags to a highly prestigious global clientele around the globe since 2005 and we also...

Decisions, decisions.

Decisions, decisions.

Lilac Blue have recently offered for sale two gorgeous Birkins – one in Bleu Abysse, the other in Brighton Blue – both in shiny Porosus Croc and both with Silver Hardware so how do you choose between them?  Well, size is probably the major factor with the Bleu Abysse in 30cm and the Brighton Blue in 35cm but once that decision is made the choice comes down to the two very different blues.  Have a look at these two colour swatches (courtesy of Spotted Fashion) to help you make your mind up. Bleu Abysse is a truly rich dark blue, it changes from almost black to a more navy blue in the bright light and is an incredibly versatile shade.  If you normally carry a black bag but are looking for a bit of a change, but nothing too dramatic then consider this...

Summertime blues?

Summertime blues?

Summer is nearly over in the UK, although the weather we’ve been having recently completely disproves that – it’s been a fabulous couple of weeks with blue sky and almost wall to wall sunshine. I blogged earlier about colours for autumn, but for those of you who are hanging on to the idea of summer we’ve some beautiful bags available to stretch the season.  This gorgeous Kelly Flag in Epsom Leather combines Bleu Thalassa, a crisp sea blue, with sharp Blanc – the two colours work beautifully together on this bag and just shout out “summer”.  If you’d rather a block colour, then how about Bleu Izmir?  A classic turquoise reminiscent of sparkling swimming pools and warm seas – currently we have a 25cm Birkin...

Is the Toolbox a classic in the making?

Is the Toolbox a classic in the making?

If you don’t want to wait for a Birkin or Kelly, or just want a different bag for different occasions then do consider the Hermès Toolbox.  Some people are certain that’s it’s a classic in the making – here at Lilac Blue we’re not so sure, but it is still a fabulous bag, lovely to look at and eminently practical too.

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
