It was 1988. It was Paris. It was Hermes. And this is what she found: two unusual Hermes bags that we have never seen before that were purchased at the Hermes flagship boutique on Rue Faubourg Saint Honore. We were stumped when we first received these and very inquisitive since we like to think we know everything when it comes to Hermes, but these bags are the ultimate in unusual and we hope you find as charming as we find them! Every so often we get to lose our Hermes virginity once again!

The first bag resembles an over-sized coin purse in black boxed leather with a very chic "H" motif clasp and can be worn as a shoulder bag or carried as a clutch (when removing the strap). The second bag is red Courchevel leather and has a palm tree motif clasp and the leather strap is adjustable for versatile wearing. We particularly dig the hardware at the top of the bag which mimics the clasp. The shape is very reminiscent of Hermes top handles bags (like the "Ring" bag of the 1950s -- we have one in croc we will post shortly), but it functions like the bag of the moment, the Constance, but it so not of the moment as it is completely moment-less and very Decades.
