I am finally finding myself to be over the stud trend. I liked it, I bought it, I wore it, and now I am over it. But there are still few bags that bring in some stud-like hardware that is not typical of the studded bag rage and perfect to add a metal touch. I have always been attracted to the Hermes Medor Clutch and this weekend it is my latest obsession.

The design itself is inherently simple, with nothing about the size or look of the body of the clutch standing out. But the hardware (I am unsure whether I prefer black or silver on the black box leather), is distinctive, eye-catching, and bold. And it is the hardware that makes anyone looking at this clutch say, ‘Oh, that is Hermes alright‘. There is a small, 23 cm, and large 29 cm, size. The leather is box skin, which is sturdy yet shows scratches more easily than many Hermes leathers. And while the leather version is beautiful, the Spring 2009 collection sent a green exotic skin onto the runway that makes me want to see this bag in a rouge croc before ever settling on leather. Buy online via Hermes for $4,025 for the small and $4,200 for the large.

    I think I prefer the gold hardware, which seems odd since I usually prefer silver.

  • Handbag Lover

    This clutch is hot and the gold one is the bomb.

  • cge

    I’ve had my eye on this for a while too Megs, but I’m just not sure how timeless it would be. I might opt for one of the other more classic designs put forth by Hermes, like the Kelly cut/longue. But if money were no object, I’d buy it simply because it’s beautiful.

  • Sonya

    These clutches are hotter than July!!! OMG, I am truly in love with them. They say, sexy, classy, sensual, and the list goes on and on. Great job Hermes. (The hardware is phenomenal.)

    love the gold hardware!!!

  • Stacy

    WOOOH!! Ooh Myy! *saying it like George Takei from his latest commercial pushing Sharp – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hSnAxvRdmY* This is loverly! I would personally go with the silver simply because that’s my prefence and I feel that black and silver are timeless. I know…probably no more so than gold is, but still ijmo. Funny, because I was browsing their site today, as well. I was also obsessing about the Garden Party Bag to use as an office tote for my computer and papers. It’s plain and not much going on but I still like. I could also dress it up with one of their scarfs. We’ll see. ;) (fb)

  • Karin bag4bag

    Sometimes you can’t list what is needed to make a bag perfect, but when I see this Hermes Medor clutch it is instant admiration. Due to the price I will have to admire it from afar, but it is so beautiful. The quality is remarkable and such a timeless design. I like both gold and silver – which rarely happens. (fb)

  • Shine

    Its really beautifil.(fb)

    • Shine

      i mean beautiful.. (fb)

  • Nola

    I’ve never been a fan of Hermes bags. Too structured and plain IMO.

    BTW there’s no such word as “alright”. It’s all right. ;-)

    • You are correct, but ‘alright’ is used as informal slang now and is part of the dictionary too. It just isn’t formal or proper, but often used :)

    • chloehandbags

      I don’t know about American English, but ‘alright’ has been in British dictionaries and in common useage (not just as slang!) since waaay before I was born.

      My mother (a teacher) always used it and teachers at school never corrected us for using it.

      In fact, I seem to remember that, when we were very young, we would be corrected if we ever wrote ‘all right’ as two words?

      I certainly find myself looking at ‘all right’ and thinking it looks wrong!

      I think American English is, rapidly, engulfing British English and people (even including the compilers of some online dictionaries!) are forgetting (or have never known!) what has always been acceptable/correct/preferred, here.

      • chloehandbags

        BTW, just noticed that I said ‘useage’, not usage.

        Once again, I believe ‘useage’ used to be a perfectly acceptable variant in British English, when I was at school – whereas, it now appears to be viewed as merely a spelling mistake!


  • Queena

    HERMES always gives us the most luxurious and delicate feeling at the first sight! but most of us could not afford it. http://www.slingfree.com

  • Noora

    hmmm ..
    i’m not crazy about them .. they look very ordinary -.-‘

  • Jane

    The black version is beautiful and simple, but the green exotic is more beautiful. I would rather buy the green exotic than the simple black. I loved the ombre lizard just as well. (fb)

  • zaali

    I love the Hermes clutch with the gold studs but would I spend more than $ 4000?…This is a lot of money… (fb)

  • Daniella

    I think it’s absolutely beautiful!

  • stefaniewhite

    Geez, so simple but sophisticated…


  • Jackson

    I love the Hermes clutch with the gold studs but would I spend more than $ 4000?…This is a lot of money… (fb)

  • Leslie

    I really like it, I am usually am unsure if I like Hermes things or not as I find it really structured and somewhat plain but this one I really like how the hardware stands out. It looks so simple yet attractive. Something I would like to hold in my hands and touch to feel the quality. Although I have to say, 4,000 is a lot for a clutch. (fb)

  • Nikki

    It’s all about the silver for me – truly exquisite!
    Not quite within budget for a uni student… not yet, that is!

  • Monique

    nice and overpriced (fb)

  • Deborah Curran

    It’s very classy but I personally wouldn’t get a lot of use out of a clutch and would rather spend the money on a bag I could use every day.
    Hermes does make beautiful bags – and this one is great – for those that go out often (fb)

  • Voodoo

    Hawwwwwwwwt! (fb)

  • Tiff Chao

    It’s a simple yet elegant clutch. I don’t think I could afford to spend that kind of money on it though. (fb)

  • Elisa

    less is more…no sparkles, sequins or little details…just a strong and gorgeous hardware in a clutch with simple lines…and I fall in love with all of this…´coz it´s amazing! Die for it would be impossible, since our life is priceless and divine. But for sure, have the oportunity to have one could be an inestimable pleasure for all of us…(fb)
