There’s probably a very whimsical story behind the bolt-shaped clasp that’s more often than not seen on cupboards and doors, and it’s also the first time I’ve seen this humble latch mechanism being upgraded into becoming a luxury leather bag’s clasp. But because I don’t know the exact story behind it, let’s just focus on how adorable it looks on Hermès’ Verrou Chaîne Mini, a tiny little number crafted out of Mysore goatskin leather that measures just 17.7 cm across by 14 cm in height.
Finished off with the slinkiest of metal slings, this is one bag you use for that glitzy night out on the town, with your personals safely ‘locked’ away within. Priced at GBP4860 (or almost SGD8500 after conversion), one would think it would come with a digital keypad instead, requiring your pin number to unlock (or lock) the bag. But it wouldn’t be as sexy, right?
