A Horse is a Horse, Of Course, Of Course—Unless It’s Hermès, Then It’s a $133k Art Piece

Categories:Other Brands

THE PRICE ISN’T A TYPO, BUT THEN AGAIN, IT NEVER IS WITH HERMÈS.

The longer you spend working in or writing about the luxury industry, the more desensitized to its absurdities you become. Luxury is maximal by definition—if not by appearance, then by some sort of abundance. Moderation is its natural opposite, so once an idea of abundance is taken to its logical extreme, a further logical extreme must be invented. Today, we’ve found a new one: an Hermès leather horse statue that measures 4.5 feet long and rings up at a steep $133,000. Even if you’re medium-rich, it’s probably enough to make you empathize with how all those French peasants felt about Marie Antoinette.

Marley the Poney, as Hermès is calling her (him? Marley’s gender is unclear), is a one-of-a-kind upholstered mini-statue that answers the question, “How do we continue to get the ultra wealthy to spend their money with us when we have already sold them a half dozen versions of literally everything they already realized it was possible to need or want?” Apparently, you construct a barnyard animal out of leather and then give it an all-over leather mane that makes it look like if Cousin It were a horse, but also, spiritually, a handbag. And then you assign this monument to upholstery a six-figure price tag, because what does money even mean anymore? It’s 2017, baby. We’re through the looking glass.

As always, it’s instructive in these situations to do the math on what else one might buy with Cousin It Handbag Horse money. Mostly, that means tallying up the modest new cars or other leather handbags one might buy, but in this case, Marley’s whopping price tag will get you two well-equipped BMW X5 SUVs, a small collection of Hermès’s ultra rare crocodile Birkins or Kellys, or, in many parts of the US, your first starter home. For people who already have all that stuff locked up, well: it gets you a large (but not, like, impressively large) leather horse in need of a haircut, which is either useful for intimidating visitors to your country estate by letting them know you have more money than God or an incredibly dumb way to let grifters, hustlers and scammers of all types know that you’d be an easy mark. Your choice, really.

Potentially, the funniest part of all of this is that Marley is part of the Hermès petite h program, which was created to put to use the leftover leathers and silks that are a biproduct of the brand’s existing accessories businesses. It’s unclear if that’s indeed Marley’s material origin, but if that part of the petite h ethos applies here, then someone’s literally going to pay six figures for recyclables.

HERMES OPLI CLUTCH

Categories:Other Brands

Hermes-Opli-clutch

Hermes has a long list of classic handbags and they don’t create new ones very often. But when they do, you will always be the first one to know at Bragmybag. Now introducing the Hermes Opli Clutch Bag for the Spring Summer 2017 Collection.

The Opli Clutch Bag is designed in single colors with a futuristic appeal. The lines are perfect, the edges are sharp and it looks minimal. It’s made with a front flap that can be opened with a hidden snap closure. If you take a look at the sides, you will notice that the leather has been folded to create the interior, which is a clever idea.

And because the interior is foldable, it can expand when you open the clutch. Inside you will find one large compartment (quite big for a clutch bag) to help you carry your essentials. This large compartment looks like the inside of a small box. There is also a smaller interior front pocket for mini accessories.

Overall, the Hermes Opli Clutch looks easy but it’s all about the structure of the design. This bag is made from goatskin, which is a strong and durable leather. Measuring 8.3’ x 4.7’ x 3.1’ inches, priced at $3225 USD via Hermes boutiques.

So what do you think? Is it stunning or…?

HERMES BOLIDE PICNIC BAG

Hermes-Bolide-Picnic-Bag

Are you heading for a fun afternoon picnic with your girlfriends this summer? Whether it be at the beach, park, or at your backyard, we’re pretty sure that this limited edition Hermes Bolide Picnic Bag is right for the occasion.

The Hermes Bolide Bag has a long and rich history; the first-version was actually released in 1923. The latest version of the Bolide Bag today is available in leather and it’s designed for everyday carry. The newest Hermes Bolide Picnic Bag on the other hand, looks quite the same, but there are minor differences.

The top of the Hermes Bolide Picnic Bag is made from leather while its bottom is made from intricately woven lightweight wicker to create a sturdy, structured shape. It also has a front leather strap with button to close for an added sense of security. And when you take a look from the side, it features a braided design to complement the leather and wicker combo. For easy hand carrying, this bag features double handles.

For the final touch, flower-knots have been put on the end of the handles. As a summer must-have, this bag is perfect to bring anywhere you go as it can hold most of your summer essentials such as your sunglasses, tanning lotion, and sunblock.

The bag is purposely made in taller-size as Hermes understands how much essential you need to bring during the Spring and Summer times. And because the summer is hot, the bottom part let’s air breathe inside the bag, to keep the essentials fresh.

We do not have the prices and the sizes, but we do know that this is a limited edition. Check with the SA for more details.

Mirroring the most iconic piece of the house; the Hermes Kelly Bag. They say that you need to get on the waiting list of the waiting list in order to buy the Kelly Bag. Fortunately this rule doesn’t apply to the Kelly Wallet, but it was limited on a certain degree. You see, the Hermes Kelly wallet wasn’t randomly available in every store. It was either sold-out or you need to wait for the next stock, which made this wallet a rare piece. But nowadays, it’s easier to get the Kelly Wallet.

The Hermes Kelly Wallet resembles to the Hermes Kelly Bag. There are a lot of elements that are similar like the shape, the leather and the design. The vital piece on the Kelly Wallet is the classic Kelly Closure (also known as the Kelly Lock) that’s crafted in the center.

The Hermes Kelly Bag’s history rooted back in1892 and it was named after Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly. She was a fashion icon and fell in love with this bag immediately. The fame of the Kelly Bag never decreased and is still limited available today. But later on, Hermes introduced the Kelly Wallet, which is inspired by the Kelly Bag.

Just like the Kelly Wallet, the Hermes Constance Wallet also resembles from an iconic bag; the Hermes Constance Bag. The Constance Bag is one of the oldest handbags of the house; it was designed by Catherine Chaillet back in the 1959. And as an honour, the bag was named after her fifth child. The Hermes Constance Bag’s fame rapidly increased after the former First Lady of the United States, Jacqueline Kennedy, was seen carrying the bag. After that it became popular in the Hollywood and since then the history was written.

The Hermes Constance Wallet looks very similar to the bag edition. The most important designs are the flap and the H logo hardware.

Hermes Bearn Wallet Interior

Wallet carries an iconic story, but the Bearn Wallet has became very popular lately.
The Hermes Bearn Wallet has the classic look and features the H logo with strap. As for the design part, it’s quite minimal with series of single colours available.

And although the H logo reminds us of the Constance Wallet, but it’s much smaller and humble. It doesn’t scream Hermes, yet it feels calm and elegant. And what’s more important, this wallet is less expensive than the Kelly or the Constance, but it features the same level of craftsmanship and quality. So it’s certainly a great investment.

Besides its look, the interior is structured and is made with all the pockets you need including 5 card slots, zipped pocket and other compartments to hide your essentials. So what do you say? Which wallet is a great investment?

Hermès introduces a miniature Nantucket watch

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


In 1991, when Henri d’Origny was asked to come up with a square watch, he designed the Nantucket watch for Hermès with an elongated rectangular case and an anchor chain motif.

The gold watch is set with 186 diamonds and features a white mother-of-pearl dial. Thee steel version features an opaline dial. Powered by a Swiss Quartz movement, the watch provides the usual hour and minute functions and is water resistant to 30 m. The watch is available with either single or double wrap-around straps available in alligator or calfskin and in a broad range of colors.

This is a lovely women’s day gift to your mom or best friend thanks to a truly timeless design and neat aesthetic. The watch is classically Hermès and will be a treasured timepiece for years to come.
