Certainly one of the most unusual things to come out from Hermès recently is the Hermès Box With Strap And Cowhide Handles which is technically not a bag in any sense. Those familiar with equestrian paraphernalia may find this familiar though, a resealable tin that’s traditionally used to hold grooming materials like brushes, soap and bridles.
More interestingly, it comes with a pair of cowhide handles (the bits on the left and right that look like ears), which I’m assuming are there to facilitate easy transport from point A to B. And since while most of us in urban Singapore won’t have a horse (or a stable for that matter), there’s no stopping you from getting one and being creative with it.
Use it to hold your favourite fragrances, or your plush collection of tiny Hello Kitty dolls (Sharon T, are you reading this?). Personally (and if the size permits), I will probably use it to hold all my SLGs sans boxes.
Available in two sizes, the smaller one will retail for SGD570 when it is eventually launched with the F/W11 collection in Singapore. Irrelevant and unnecessary, or a truly novel addition to any house proud Hermès fan? You tell me.
