Men looking for a fuss-free pouch from Hermès typically find themselves looking at the Flat Yachting Pouch from the Parisian luxury house. It’s essentially a flat canvas piece that comes in 3 sizes, printed with the words Hermès Bain Paris on a myriad of colours like Bleu Horizon, Feu, Rouge or Soleil, just to name a few. While it has only been available in a thin canvas version over the years, Hermès has recently introduced an all-new version of the popular piece in a neoprene-like (80% polyamide and 20% elastane) material, with slight updates in terms of the size and colour options.
Starting with the PM (SGD370), which measures 21 cm by 15 cm, it’s perfect for all your small bits and bobs that will fit nicely within your bag or used like a small pouch while out running errands like a quick trip to the supermarket. The next size up, MM (SGD390) is considerably bigger at 28 cm by 20 cm, and can even be used as a daily purse, housing everyday essentials like your iPhone, portable charger, cardholder, wallet and the like. The biggest, GM (SGD430) comes in at 34 cm by 25 cm, doubling up as a holder for your iPad (even the biggest 12.9 inch iPad Pro would fit), or pretty much perfect for packing everything you need under the sun.
The great thing about the all-new material, is that neoprene is much more forgiving in nature, meaning you can pack a few more items and stretch it without having awkward parts sticking out. It’s also water-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about getting caught in the rain. Available in a range of colours like Acier, Bouton D’Or, Bleu, Orange or Rouge, the Neobain Case can be found across Hermès boutiques like Liat Towers (which will house merchandise from Scotts Square that’s set to close by February 2019), Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre. #happyshopping
