A New Guide to Hermès Bags

A New Guide to  Hermès Bags

Over at the PurseBlog they’ve had the brilliant idea of compiling a visual guide to  Hermès bags.  This is a harder task than it sounds, since as we know Hermès are not given to publicizing their bags!  Head over here for an interesting read and some great pictures.

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...

If you’re feeling the cold this January…..

How about warming up with one of these lovely bags from Hermes?  Coral is a gorgeous new soft orange red with lovely warm tones which together with the pink of Flamingo  makes this Limited Edition Kelly Flag really stand out.  Alternatively if you want a a bit  more Coral then take a look at this equally gorgeous 35cm Kelly in Coral and Orange.  I’m feeling warmer...

Hot News from Hermes!

Hot News from Hermes!

We have recently learned that Hermes are changing the way they date mark their bags.  With immediate effect it appears that the bags will no longer carry a date stamp but will be marked with a new method of identification.  The exotics skin bags will now be electronically chipped, holding information on the date and place of purchase as well as the purchaser themselves.  As soon as we have more information we’ll let you know.

New Year, new prices

New Year, new prices

They’ve done it again.  Hermes have increased their prices for 2015 by on average between 4% and 8% in Europe, with reports of 10% for some items in the US and further afield. A 32 Kelly in Togo leather was selling at 6200 Euros in 2014 and has substantially increased in price to 6800 for 2015, whilst a 30 Birkin in Togo has gone from 6500 Euro to 6750 and if you want a 35 Birkin in Togo be prepared to pay 7400 Euros.  It appears that prices have also increased for most other bags and accessories too, so if you’re after that something special from Hermes this year  you’ll have to dig a little...

Something a little different

Something a little different

If you’re looking for a Birkin with a difference then consider the Flag Birkin in Toile H Canvas and Natural Barenia Leather.  This gorgeous limited edition bag has a more relaxed vibe and looks great with a casual wardrobe, but dress up a little and it works just as well.  The classic Barenia saddle leather contrasts beautifully with the canvas and the whole bag is set off by Permabrass hardware which is slightly more “subdued” than gold and tones perfectly with the leather.  Don’t miss...

Keeping your hands warm in style

Keeping your hands warm in style

Introduced by Jean Paul Gaultier during his time at Hermes, the Kelly Muff is certainly a stylish way to keep warm – if not the most practical!  This gorgeous soft suede and shearling Muff does have a little interior pocket for keeping credit cards and cash, but really it’s all about what it looks like – and the warmth.  So, if you’re heading for the slopes this New Year then consider one of these, much more fun than a pair of...
