Hermès S/S14 Clutches In Swift Calfskin

January 14, 2014

hermes_ss14-clutches-swift-calfskin Not to be confused with the Pliplat that’s really quite similar, these yet-unnamed Swift calfskin?leather clutches from the Spring-Summer 2014 Womens Hermès collection might just have found their way right to my ‘must-buy-bag-list’ of S/S14 yet. Characterised by its simple lines with an arrowhead flap that tucks neatly under the ‘handle’, this is as fuss-free as it gets. And with the plethora of colours it will come in, starting with the four you see above (can anyone name all the new colours?), picking one in your favourite hue won’t be an issue either.

We’ll just have to wait and see how much they will retail for, but seeing how bags and SLGs from?Hermès aren’t really that affordable to begin with, I’m thinking they could cost an arm. With half a leg thrown in. What do you think?

Hermès Mini Convoyeur Wallet In Evercolor Calfskin

January 16, 2014

hermes_mini-convoyeur-wallet-evercolor-calfskin I know, I know, this is my 3rd Hermès post in a week, but it would be a greater sin if I didn’t share something this beautifully stunning with you all. Also from the S/S14 collection and characterised by its ridged hardware clasp and angled flap, this could also be Hermès’ first wallet that comes with its own sling (do correct me if I’m wrong), pretty much like Chanel’s WOC.

Use it as a sling bag with all your cash and cards tucked safely inside, loop it twice and have it hang just under your shoulder. Or just remove the sling completely and use it as a clutch, or have it just sitting snugly inside your handbag, depending on what you feel like doing on that particular day, especially with it being so multi-functional.

Which brings me to another point that was discussed while in a meeting today. Is it just me or is Hermès embarking on a minimalist exercise with some of their bags and SLGs (check out their new S/S14 leather clutches here), keeping them as pared down and as clean as possible. And whilst I’m pretty sure hardcore H fans won’t bite (they are still obsessed with the Birkins and the Kellys), I would conclude that it’s just the French house’s way of being progressive and trying to reach out to a young yet affluent?demographic. Smart, as compared to the other French brand churning out colourful coated canvas toiletry bags that are being passed off as sling bags. There, I said it.
