Simply put, I want this bag. Both Amanda and I have already told you about our mutual love for the Hermes Jypsiere. Upscale chic meets downtown cool in this messenger style bag. I’ve played with the Jypsiere in the Hermes store and must admit getting in and out of it is a little more work than I would typically like when it comes to my handbags. But the beauty of this bag outweighs the hassle of getting in and out.
This Wednesday I want the Hermes Crocodile Jypsiere. What bag do you want?
The Hermes Kelly is an iconic bag, but with its structured shape and usual smaller sizes, it lends a very dressy vibe to your outfits. When Hermes sent out the Jypsiere for their Fall 2008 collection, everyone who had been wanting a more casual everyday Kelly were enthused. The Hermes Jypsiere reinterpreted the Hermes Kelly by changing it into a messenger bag that will sit at the hip. The slightly rounded bottom and adjustable shoulder strap reinvented the Kelly in a way most people did not expect. (more…)
1) 35cm Shiny Black pororus Croc Birkin with White Gold Hardware
2) 22cm Chocolate Togo So Kelly with PHW (it’s said that only Togo will be used in AW2008)
3) 35cm Etoupe Togo Birkin with PHW
Hermes tuned in to their subtle side; not offering anything on the runway that brought a new and wacky punch, but offering us a taste of refined style that they are known for. Coats and jackets took precedence on the Paris runway, which were pulled together with oversized belts pulled tight at the waist. The color palette was monochromatic yet timeless. There was a sense of stability during the show, as the models gracefully made their way down the runway accessorized with knit caps and scarves. The handbags stayed true to Hermes, but added an urban chic touch with the reinterpreted Hermes Kelly worn as a messenger bag at the hip, named the Hermes Jypsiere. Many say Hermes played it safe, but it was more about being classic than safe to me. The Hermes Fall 2008 line is timeless, just as the brand itself.
