I was beginning to think that this was a figment of my imagination, something I dreamt up that couldn’t have possibly existed since I couldn’t remember where I had first seen it. Till I started trawling through Hermès’ online site (yes, it is still one of my favourite things to do after a long week at work) and bingo, it was just sitting there staring back at me.
Simply known as the Enveloppe Trio, it’s simply 2 zip pouches that come housed within an envelope ‘folder’. And because it’s from Hermès, every item in this 3-piece set is naturally made of leather, Mysore goatskin, to be exact. Measuring 20.5 cm by 15 cm for the largest piece, this would function like a wallet for me, and I’ll use the smaller zip pouch for credit cards, the larger zip one for cash and other bits, and house both pieces within the envelope. Or I’ll use them separately, depending on what I need for that particular day, which I guess is the beauty of this mix-and-match leather suite.
Priced at GBP920 (which would make it easily over SGD2000 locally), no word yet if they are available in Singapore, or if they will come in more combinations for us to choose from. My dream set? Something in deep green, another piece in maybe a dark blue and housed in either a grey or black envelope. How about you?
