Love the classic flat canvas case from Hermès? Then it will be pretty hard to say no to these new styles printed with a fancy graphic motif. Adding extra flair to the predominantly plain Bain pouches from seasons past, this dynamic duo features two distinct prints, the Escale A La Plage and Tressages Marins, on both sides of the respective case.
Each print has a rather unique story as well, with the Escale A La Plage designed by Mathieu Cosse depicting the iconic Chaîne d’ancre bracelet laying beautifully amongst lush sands in the daytime. The Tressages Marins, on the other hand, has a nautical twist, thanks to the elaborate ropes forming a knotted chain link pattern created by Florence Manlik in 2016.
These printed editions of the Bain pouches in 100% cotton are going for SGD480 a pop, and they come in the standard size measuring 29 cm by 19 cm. Skip the queues and go straight to Hermès Singapore’s online store, where both the Escale A La Plage and Tressages Marins styles are available in colours like Ciel/Nuit and Tan/Orange/Rose respectively.
