The Bolide Bag has joined in the Hermes Permanent Collection since 1923. It’s one of the iconic handbags just like the Kelly and Birkin Bag. Emile-Maurice Hermes, the grandson of the founder, designed this handbag exclusively for his wife in 1922. It was the first carryall with zip compartment, which was created to replace the usual metallic clasps. When crafting the Bolide Bag, Emile-Maurice Hermes was inspired by cars. This bag can easily be stored in the trunk of a sport car and thus it was given the name ‘sac pour l’auto. Later on the name was changed to Bolide.

For the 21th century and for the sake of fashion forward, Hermes updated the Bolide Bag with this contemporary Bolide 1923 Bag for the Cruise 2018 Collection.

The Design


The Original Hermes Bolide Bag

Hermes changed some part and kept some part of the original Bolide Bag. If you compare the Bolide 1923 with the original version, you will notice that the new version is much more streamlined. The center leather patch has been removed as well as the stitched line that separated the upper and the lower part. The handles look the same, but it’s a bit tougher and appears to be larger because the size 30 is bigger. And while the original Bolide has a nice feminine curvy/round shape, the newer version is crafted with a big and round peach-like shape.

Both bags come with a chic luggage tag and bottom studs. And both bags are made with a detachable leather strap for shoulder or cross body carry.

The Hermes Bolide 1923 Bag is definitely crafted to look more futuristic, minimalistic but also classic. All the sophisticated lines or unnecessary designs have been removed. Also, this bag is made to maximize the storage because the size is made more round and bigger.

More over, this handbag is crafted from Taurillon Novillo, but there might be more leather options.

The Interior

The interior of the Bolide 1923 bag hasn’t changed much. Of course the inside is bigger, because the bag is also made bigger. When you open the bag, you will find the main compartment, which is quite large. There is also a patch pocket inside. And because this bag is secured with a zipper, no one can enter the bag without your notice when carrying.

The Prices And Sizes

The Hermes Bolide 1923 Bag in size 30 is measured 11.9’ x 9.1’ x 5.1’ (L x H x D) inches and priced at $8050 USD, €5500 euro, £5040 GBP via Hermes boutiques.

Hermès Diabolo



If you’re in the market for a card holder that makes all the right first impressions, look no further than Hermès’ Diabolo for that perfect pedigree. Measuring approximately 10 cm by 6 cm (or just the size for credit or name cards), it’s the one you whip out at that important business meeting or the one you use to keep your Centuarian safe. The choice is yours really.

Priced at SGD620 a piece in Singapore, the Diabolo comes in a variety of Hermès leathers like Epsom calfskin and Mysore goatskin in many different colours (you can even get the one in Noir just to match the aforementioned Centuarian), here comes the bad news. Because of its sleek thin design, you can only store up to 2 credit cards in each Diabolo, or up to 8 name cards, depending on the thickness of each card. But since we’re all about making that good first impression, it shouldn’t really matter, right?

Hermès Harnais



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.
