A quick search of ‘etrier’ on Google will lead to images of ringed loops typically made of metal. Yes, that word is French for stirrup, commonly used in horse riding where riders use it like a ladder as well as staying balanced while on the horse. Which is why it is hardly a surprise to find it translated as a key element in Hermès’ leather goods, such as the Etrier Double Tour Bracelet that’s featured above. After all, the French luxury house first established itself as the maker of horse riding paraphernalia (creating bridles, harnesses and saddles) back in the 1800s.
The Etrier Double Tour Bracelet features double Etrier rings right in front that are ‘locked’ together. Each side of the buckle is attached to Tadelakt calfskin leather straps in colours that include Blanc (White), Bleu Brighton (Blue), Noir (Black), Rouge Vif (Red) and Vert Vertigo (Green) amongst others, with the bracelets coming in PHW or GHW for now.
Available in 3 different sizes, they start from T1 (14.5 cm), before going up to T2 (15.5 cm) and finally T3 (16.5 cm), so it is best you head on down to your nearest Hermès boutique to try them on for size. Priced at SGD930 each, this would make a stellar addition to your #wristparty collection.
