The Cabana is a discontinued Hermès model, perfect for lovers of vintage and contemporary handbags alike. The lightweight, double shoulder-strap design makes it a stylish and functional piece, ideal for the woman on the go. Understated but masterfully crafted, the Cabana bag in Hermès’
The Evelyne bag has been a favourite with fans of Hermès since its introduction in 1978. Named for the head of the brand’s Equestrian department, Évelyne Bertrand, the bag features a perforated H pattern that is not merely decorative — it was originally a functional feature that allowed for ventilation and drying should one be carrying horse-grooming equipment.
Hermès drew inspiration for the Picotin bag from the feedbags looped over horses’ ears — a nod to the equestrian heritage of Hermès. The Picotin bag is an extremely lightweight model due to its simple design and lack of bulky hardware. Produced in super-collector favourite Pink 5P, this bag stands out in the best way.
Hermès is well-known for its sense of humour, and this bag is a lovely example. Playfully inspired by a toolbox, it features a thick canvas strap that makes it supremely utilitarian. The limited-edition combination of Veau Doblis & Swift Leather, known as the Grizzly Toolbox, adds an extra element of originality.
This stunning Kelly features hard sides and exterior stitches — the hallmarks of the sellier model. Particularly loved by collectors, the sellier Kelly is aesthetically striking and architectural in design. The bag is made in Hermès’ chèvre leather — a highly-durable and beautifully textured goat leather. The vert anis colour is also a collector favourite, and it perfectly paired with contrast stitching.
The Constance bag might be the least-known of the most collectible Hermès models, but it is no less loved. Designed in 1969 by Catherine Chaillet and named after her newborn daughter, this shoulder bag features a prominent, shiny H clasp, crafted from six pieces of palladium. Each bag takes 14 hours to make, with a single craftsman hand-stitching almost 50 individual pieces of leather. This particular bag is created a custom piece - featuring a lovely Bleu Saphir exterior, paired with a striking Rose Extreme extrerior.
The Club Birkin is a Limited Edition series of Birkin bags featuring bi-colour leather exteriors, complemented with a striking, contrasting stripes of lizard. This beautiful example features two muted neutrals- white and Gris Perle - with a flash of Mykonos lizard, creating an understaded and very special exterior. The Limited Edition Club Bikin was discontinued, making this a collector's find on the market. This classic Birkin is created in the brand’s most popular size, 35cm, and is complemented by palladium hardware, making it both sporty and chic.
The sellier Kelly bag has been a classic since it originated in the early 20th century. Renamed after Grace Kelly — who allegedly fell in love with the bag after sporting one in To Catch a Thief in 1954 — it has embodied her ladylike style for more than 50 years. The ostrich leather used on this model enhances an aura of elegance in keeping with such a style icon.
For a classic Hermès collector, a Shiny Crocodile Birkin is a must-have item. The 30cm size is a more petite model, ideal for transitioning from day to night. Graphite is a very dark gray, which reads as a more sophisticated alternative to black. Paired with Palladium Hardware, this is a forever-bag for a collector who appreciates the beauty of exotics.
