Can I just say, of all the Hermès bags I’ve yet to own, the Jypsiére ranks pretty high on that list? Sure, my bag obsessions come and go, sometimes even overnight, but with this one it has been definitely ongoing for a while now. So why haven’t I gotten myself one of the most iconic bags from the French luxury house yet, introduced by Jean-Paul Gaultier way back in 2008?
Well, for one, it’s the price, which keeps getting higher and higher with each year and I keep kicking myself for not biting the bullet moons ago when I had the chance. Secondly, I’ve heard that as organised as it is on the inside, it’s not the easiest design to get your stuff in and out of, especially when you’re on the move. Lastly (and most importantly), it’s the colour. Black would be too commonplace, grey would be playing it safe, and the one above, in Rubis (GBP5270 for the 28 and GBP5820 for the 31) from this season certainly is alluring but it just isn’t me. In other words, even if I can get over reasons (or in this case, the first and second excuses), the colour has to be just right for me to commit.
All the colours in the world, just not the one I want. In other words, if anyone has seen a Jypsiére in Canopee (a stunning olive green) anywhere, do let me know. Thanks.
