Hermès Harnais

Hermes

IMAGE: HERMÈS

Do a double, no, a triple take on the Harnais, and you can see why its silhouette is befitting of a true blue Hermès bag, its saddle-like shape referencing the very thing the leather house was originally famed for – horse saddles and equestrian accessories. And while the Hermès of today is better known for luxurious leather goods that might have little to do with its founding years – at least now we have the Harnais to thank for reminding us of the French luxury house’s heritage.

With the front looking like a horse saddle (that’s also where the front flap is) in gorgeous smooth Swift leather, turn the bag to its side and you’ll see a pair of leather straps, reminiscent of billet straps found on horse saddles, that make their way around the base of the bag, connecting to adjustable shoulder straps on either side.

And while the flap is in Swift leather, the body is all Epsom leather, giving the bag great structure and the ability to resist light scratches and nicks. On the inside you’ll find two flat pockets that are sufficient for a good day out, and depending on what you require, you can wear the bag long or short with its rounded shaped made for sitting snuggly under the shoulder.

Available in a single size (25 cm by 20 cm), this beauty is priced atSGD13,100, which could also be the reason why not many out there are willing to take that jump. But far from being just another Hermès bag, theHarnais is one that harnesses (no pun intended) the history of the storied French house, and one that is perfect for the lady that’s looking for something that will be relevant and stylish in the many years to come.

Hermès Sales Continue to Grow Because It Plays Hard-to-Get with Birkin Bags

Hermes

Hermes-Crocodile-Birkin

Although sales are slowing in the long-booming Asian luxury market, it probably won’t surprise bag lovers to hear that Hermès continues to increase its sales and meet the expectations of industry-watching analysts. It also probably won’t surprise you to hear why;Bloomberg credits the brand’s strength with the Birkin’s perpetual scarcity.

Hermès’s total sales climbed 15% in the third quarter of 2015, raking in $1.2 billion for the Paris-based brand. When you adjust for currency fluctuations, that’s 7.9%, which Bloomberg reports as right on target with analysts’ forecast of 8%. Sales in Japan in particular were up a whopping 17%, which Bloomberg attributes to the yen’s weak position against the yuan, spurring spending from Chinese tourists shopping abroad. Hermès sales also grew 2% in the Americas in the same period.

The luxury sector is having a tough time overall in Asia, partly because of anti-extravagance regulations curtailing the market in China, but Hermès has something other brands don’t (and can’t) have: the Birkin. The bags are, of course, legendarily difficult to purchase, and the scarcity of its most famous product gives Hermès a status and exclusivity that’s unrivaled in the luxury market. When dealing with wealthy consumers who have plenty of options when it comes to spending their money, that counts for a lot.

Hermes Opens Its Own Perfume Boutique in New York

Hermes

For the average individual, buying a designer item becomes a heavy drain on the paycheck, which is why accessories and perfumes are always the better place to put one’s focus if the mass market is what a designer hopes to tap into. That is millions and billions of people who would scrape and save in order to be able to afford a pair of designer sunglasses or a hat and gloves. When it comes to perfumes, the prices do not vary too much and most people don’t need large bottles anyhow. Paying a decent amount for designer perfumes is a common trend, which is why brands such as Hermes are capitalizing on it and bringing in the big guns; meaning that opening a store that sells Hermes perfumes only in New York is a rather interesting venture. It may have its risks to it, but why not? After all, you have no other brands to compete with in here, pressuring the psyche of a customer or even passerby to at least pick up a small bottle. The scents would be heavenly!

Hermes First Perfumery Store in New York

The French fashion house had launched its first fragrances called Eau d’Hermes back in 1951 and has since kept up the distribution. Today, it has enough types of perfumes in order to open a specialized Hermes perfumery boutique in New York, where only its own in-house creations are offered to the public. At over 1000 sq. ft., it is a rather large space located on the ground floor of the Brookfield Place luxury shopping mall on 225 Liberty Street in New York City.

But what exactly can customers expect to see when they enter? Visitors walk into a concrete airlock, which effectively places the mental and actual divide between the outside world and the perfumery. There is a screen that they find on which images by different artists depicting nature oriented themes appear before one makes her way through several rooms, made to resemble that of a house. Within the library you can find the whole of the Hermes fragrance collection, from the classics to the more modern styles. This includes Caleche, Rouge Hermes, and Eau Hermes, while fresh colognes and poeticall scented Hermessences can be personalized specifically for you. They can have monograms placed on and presented in leather cases if you so wish.

There is also a whole section dedicated to toiletries, at the back in a marble niche, where it is possible to find everything from bath foams to shampoos, soaps, hydrating balms and energizing gels. There is even a candle called The Shop Around the Corner that one can enjoy. The actual Hermes perfumery shop in New York around the corner, in an elite mall, opened just newly on September 15, 2015 and already has made a splash in the fashion world. We wonder what new innovation some of the older brands will be bringing to the table. After all, Hermes had opened its first boutique in New York back in 1930 and launched its first ever fragrance during the same period!

Hermes-Smart-Bag

The Hermes Smart Bag is the one to watch this season! This teeny but terrible contender in the small leather goods department is anything but ordinary – it may look non-intimidating and too small for your tastes, but don’t be fooled by its exterior, it can pack up as much as you need. This unisex pouch is as good as it gets.

The Smart Bag measures 3.1” x 5.9” inches (H x W), and is as handy as it can get – you can fit it inside your tote as an extended storage, or carry it separately on its own. It’s stylish enough to be worn solo (thanks to its colored calfskin exterior), so you don’t have to worry. Inside, it has one main pocket, and another pocket with natural gussets (which is perfect for storing your beloved smartphone). It can carry your day essentials, from your favorite tube of lipstick, up to your car keys and some credit cards. What a wonderful thing to have!

Priced at $860 USD, you can get your very own Smart Bag via Hermes e-store. Grab one now, and flaunt what you’ve got!
