Once you look past house standards like the Birkin and the Kelly, you’ll realise there’s actually still a whole lot more (as far as bags are concerned) that can be discovered at Hermès, which while is probably famous because of the former two, shouldn’t be defined by them alone, either.
And while I go could on and on about all the bags you never knew existed at Hermès, today’s post is especially dedicated to Hermès Jypsiere, which while looking similar to the Birkin as far as the locking clasp is concerned, the comparisons end there.
Instead, the Jypsiere is a sling or messenger (depending on the size you get) which is both smartly chic and elegantly casual all at once, and just the type of bag you’ll want across your body whilst cycling around the city, visiting a museum or just enjoying a weekend in town shopping.
Available in 3 different sizes (28, 34 and 37, which refer to the width of the bag), they all come with a pair of pockets, as well as a zip pocket on the inside, which makes organisation easier.
Depending on where you are in the world, you’ll find them in a wide array of colours, and prices range from around USD8000 and up. The largest of the lot, the 37, retails for USD9200, for example.
Personally, I’m tempted to hock everything I have just to get myself a Jypsiere37.
