There’s something about the deepest of emerald greens I’ll never be able to resist, especially when it comes on something as beautiful as exotic crocodile. Yes, this is the Bâton de Craie Clutch, a somewhat newish bag from Hermès that’s actually inspired by a bag from its archives dating back to the 20s. Sporting a rounded bottom that tapers inwards as you get to the top, the 29 cm by 21.5 cm clutch is perfect for those who want something hand-held but prefer it to be much bigger, especially given how small clutches can get these days.
Finished with a malachite clasp, it’ll cost you an indulgent SGD30,700 just to bring this baby home. But if you love the shape but want something more attainable, they also come in Hunter cowhide, finished with a palladium-plated clasp that will set you back by just SGD7500. And remember this, it’s almost Christmas, and it’s been a long, hard year, so you really, really do deserve it.
