Poet John Keats opened his poem Endymion with the famous line, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”. Cynics, would disagree, but we think he was talking about Hermès handbags!
The storied French luxury brand has, since its inception in 1837, been the epitome of all things luxury. The Hermès lineup consists of timeless classics made au courant by the various colors, sizes and styles. Aficionados remain forever in awe and desire.
Despite the changes and challenges of the past year, our love for Hermès remained and perhaps even expanded. A mere three weeks into the new year and we seem to be inundated with content and news from the world of Hermès. With so much going on we thought it best to present a quick recap of some highlights/trending articles on Hermès from recent weeks:
One is simply not enough to satisfy the need for “quota” handbags, and getting two is out of the question. Or is it? We at PurseBop elucidate how you can get your hands on two or more of Hermès’ most coveted handbags – the Birkin and Kelly in the same year. While staying within the terms of the brand’s self imposed ‘one per semester’ quota of course!
