The Herbag is a popular style at Hermès for several reasons, with the most obvious being its classic-looking silhouette that’s been compared time and again to the one-and-only Kelly. Some of the similarities between the two include a trapezoid-shaped body and belted front flap, single top handle, right down to the position of the accompanying shoulder strap. It also helps that the Herbag comes in at a great price point, primarily because it’s constructed from Officier canvas (the body) and furnished with Hunter cowhide trims, which places it under the SGD4000 mark for the size 31. Naturally, it comes as no surprise that the bag is always snapped up the moment it lands in stores, with rare unicorn appearances on Hermès’ online store from time to time.
And today just might be your lucky day, with Hermès Singapore releasing several pieces online, including the Herbag Zip 31 above which is made available in two versions in Vanille/Naturel. The Herbag Zip 31 Retourne has a relaxed shape with rounded corners (the bag is essentially sewn and then turned inside out), giving it a casual, carefree look that’s great for ladies looking for a casual piece for Fridays or the weekends. The classic version, on the other hand, features sharp corners and carries a structured shape, which frankly reminds one of the Kelly Sellier.
Function-wise, both are exactly the same, opening via the Clou de Selle closure to a roomy interior (depth of 10 cm) that will sufficiently store your daily essentials. If you’re looking for the zip, that is over on the back, in an exterior patch pocket that’s perfect for quick access cards and the like. Each bag also comes with an additional zippered pouch, which can be stored within for an extra bit of security. Priced at SGD3750 each, it’s best you act fast, before they all get sold out.
