About once a week I visit the Hermes website to pretend I live in a completely different world, a world where $530 beach towels and $85 poker cards are the norm. We all know the exorbitant cost of the Birkin and Kelly bags, but Hermes releases other leather goods to lure you in as well. Majority of those are still out of the price range for most, but I discovered a ‘gem’.
Hidden under the horse riding section I found the Hermes Aline Bag, a Herringbone canvas pouch with a barenia calfskin strap.
Ok, so this bag is actually a pouch. The 11″ x 13″ body is a good size but the depth is only an inch. I am not a horseback rider, but apparently those who ride need a slim pouch bag for… something. For some reason I still like this bag, even though I recognize the absurdity entirely and understand it is not functional for what I need. However, the title of this post is still legit(ish). Buy via Hermes for $720.
