Picnic bags are a dime a dozen these days because why wouldn’t anyone want to lay back on the grounds of a beautiful park and enjoy a curated feast out of the basket. But when it comes to the ultimate of all picnic baskets, nothing comes quite as close to perfection as the one from Hermès.
Measuring 50 cm wide and 24 cm high (excluding handles), this lovely piece is the perfect showcase of Hermès’ craftsmanship and expertise. Wicker is a delicate material that needs to be well-braided to form a sturdy, structured body, which has been expertly done. That, along with the addition of the polished Hydro calfskin (found on the handles, trim and opening flaps), makes a superb combination for a truly luxurious piece.
Finished with Clou de Selle studs (which gives it subtle branding) on the leather handles, the Wicker Picnic Basket is truly made for discerning individuals who appreciate the amount of work that goes into one and is available only in limited quantities. How much you ask? Just SGD22,200, which is a considerable sum yes, but when those consider those lovely picnics you’ll be having over the many years, it is worth it, right?
