Are you thinking about Christmas presents?

Are you a super efficient person who likes to sort out their gift giving well in advance, or are you like me and a little less organised, leaving it all to the last week?  If you are the organised type then don’t forget to have a look at Lilac Blue’s website for some gift ideas – if you’re giving we have lots of lovely Hermes items which could fit the bill, from an Exotic Skin Birkin, a cute little evening bag to a silky Twilly.  On the other hand if you have been asked what you’d like as a gift then don’t forget to mention Lilac Blue as a great place for presents. A 35cm Black Birkin makes an eminently stylish and practical present – it’s perfect for all seasons and all outfits and a really wearable bag which will...

The HAC Birkin

The HAC Birkin

The Haut à Courroies, (which translates as “high belts”) bag, is very similar to the Birkin but proportionally taller with slightly shorter handles. Considered as the predecessor to the Birkin, the Haut à Courroies was originally designed by Hermes in the late 1800′s to carry riding equipment – not something most people would use it for nowadays!   It is much sought after by Hermes connoisseurs as well as celebrities and makes an especially stylish travel bag. What’s the difference between an Haut à Courroies and a Birkin?  It’s all in the size – the HAC is a taller bag, and was usually made in larger sizes from 40cm wide up to 55cm, although special order smaller versions (28cm, 32cm & 36cm) are available.  The...

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...

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...
