The Extraordinary and Elusive Hermès Bags Carried to the Women’s FW 24 Chapter II in NYC

From rare to exotic to classic and everything in between

Last week, Hermès staged its Women’s Fall/Winter ’24 Chapter II collection in New York City. While we will have more to share on what went down the runway, outside of the show provided as much content as the runway itself.

The attendees at a Hermès show include friends of the House, celebrities, influencers, editors, and VIP clients. This means a wide array of bags, from rare to classic and everything in between, were carried.

The Bags and Those Who Carried Them

I love to see recurring themes. The deep burgundy hue continues to shine, and we saw plenty in the red family, from full ensembles to the bags themselves.

We also snapped some well-known celebrities, including Usher and Nicky Hilton, with her mom, Kathy Hilton.

One of the reasons I love Hermès is that even though the brand’s most popular bags are highly recognizable, there are so many variations and special orders that can be made, allowing you to have a bag that still stands out.

Which is your favorite?

A lot of beautiful people, outfits, and bags! Thank you for the glimpse from afar 🙂 My fav has to be the Rouge Croc tho-just stunning.

Beautiful bags. It’s refreshing to see bags with no giant logos or brand names. So much more elegant. My favorite is Maximors.

I get what you are saying but in my opinion Constance is only recognizable for those already familiar with the brand. The H hardware is pretty insignificant given that most people have no clue it’s actually an H for Hermès.

I mean you could say that about any other brand. Like the Loewe anagram, they are still only recognizable by people who buy designer bags. The Hermes H is so big anyone would know it.

People who know Hermès would know it. Random people have no idea what a Constance bag is—and probably don’t care!

To say “anyone would know it” is a quantitative, overgeneralized statement and simply not true. Facts are important, not speculation.

Not really an Hermes fan, but I really like the Rouge H Birkin. I could go for that in a 25cm. It’s beautiful.

To be fair: “Neither LVMH nor Armani are under investigation.”

We all know that even the best brands, including Hermès, use outside contractors and suppliers. Many Hermès and Chanel small leather goods are manufactured by independent suppliers in France. I posted a long article about it on PurseForum many years ago. It doesn’t mean that the quality is bad… just that the illusion of everything being made by hand by some artisan is just a giant marketing ploy. Hermès sells thousands and thousands of wallets every day across the world. Do y’all think they are made by a handful of craftsmen?? LOL. Let’s be real.

The Sac Maximors is stunning, I’d lose the strap, it’s all about the handle.
