Here at Lilac Blue London, we see so many beautiful Hermès handbags in our showroom it’s always difficult to pinpoint a particular favourite. So rather than pick a particularly beautiful bag that appeals to me today, I have instead chosen the current most popular and sought-after Hermès piece.
The honour goes to the Hermès Kelly 28cm in the new Gris Asphalte grey tone (colour code M8), in the new Evercolour leather.
In a similar neutral colour palette to the ever popular classic etoupe, mixed with the paler Gris Tourterelle dove grey shade, Gris Asphalte is a very versatile mix between brown, grey and taupe.
The new Evercolour leather is most similar to togo in texture but has a slightly smoother finish. This gives it a slightly dressier look than that of the classic togo, so its transition from day to evening accessory is now seamless. It’s fully lined in goatskin, is durable and scratch resistant.
This bag is also c-stamp for 2018/19 and is finished with shiny gold hardware.
There is little doubt that part of the appeal of these Hermès bags is their unmatched ability to stand the test of time and age beautifully. And beyond that, this bag works seamlessly with all fashion seasons and any outfit choice including casual weekend options, workwear or evening looks.
It has a secure zip pocket inside and raincoat to protect the leather from any sudden downpours as well as a lock and key, and the lovely orange Hermès box, this style is one to keep forever as it will never date.
Not only is this bag the perfect small to medium size, it comes with a longer shoulder strap and dustbag so it’s a super wearable, elegant style for every occasion.
