It’s not often that you will find such a versatile and unique piece over at Hermès (with an excellent price to boot), so it’s best you sit right up, take a good look, and work on getting your own. Stat. Called the Bride-A-Brac Case, it’s constructed from lightweight canvas and fully lined in anti-stain and water-repellent chevron lining (reminiscent of that found on your Fourbi Pouch), meant to keep your beauty essentials safely stored without worrying about the occasional spills. In other words, while it looks like a cute fun day bag, Hermès classifies it as a toiletries case, so you won’t be able to find it under the bags or SLGs department, and each purchase won’t come with an accompanying orange box either.
That said, the beauty of the pouch lies in its versatility that extends beyond the conventional cosmetic case/toiletries bag. It’s furnished with a luxurious zip closure (with an accompanying tan leather zipper pull), as well as a bi-coloured canvas handle which can be worn in multiple ways. Do note that the handle can also be buttoned inward, so you can use the Bride-A-Brac Case as an inner pouch, stored within bigger bags like the Garden Party 36 or the Victoria 43, even doubling up as a bag organiser/bag shaper as well.
Currently available in Small and Large, they measure 21 cm by 17 cm and 25 cm by 21 cm respectively. There are also numerous colours to keep a lookout for, including Blue, Cream, Orange and Pink, so you can head down to any of the 3 boutiques in Singapore to view them up close. If you’re wondering about the price, the Small comes in at SGD770, while the Large is priced at SGD840, which is a pretty good price for such a multi-functional item from Hermès.
