Best Place To Buy Hermès Makes Some Curious Decisions with Its Pre-Fall 2018 Runway Bags Italy Replica Bags

The brand makes one of its signature structured looks more casual, and as is often the case for Hermès, great hardware makes a new design work

I think you all know what it means when someone says a bag looks Hermès-inspired. The vast majority of brands have produced a bag that fits that description at some point in the past five years or so, and the bags usually aped the Birkin or Kelly’s structure or hardware in some way. For Pre-Fall 2018, though, Hermès has done a curious thing: debut a new bag that, if I saw it out of context, I’d assume it was from a different brand trying to evoke an Hermès-y feeling in shoppers.

The bag is a big, somewhat bulky top-handle satchel, which has a top flap and turnlock, just like the Kelly and Birkin. This one doesn’t look as well-edited or sophisticated as those bags, though. Hermès bags usually look refined before all else, and this one looks like a less expensive brand’s stab at recreating that look. I’m sure it will be beautifully finished in person, but on the screen, it doesn’t evoke that same sense of quality.

The collection’s other big debut, though, is far more successful at capturing that singular Hermès aesthetic. It’s a tightly designed saddle bag, with a structured look and a beautiful basketweave hardware piece at its closure. It’s pure Hermès and will undoubtedly be popular among the brand’s fans who want a shoulder bag a little less formal than the Constance. Check out all the photos from the runway below.

Popular blogger Bagaholicboy who hails from Singapore had this to say: “Truth be told, I am honestly still puzzled why the Birkin is still so coveted. Yes, it looks like the most coveted bag in Singapore and across the area, and every month I get 10 new snapshots of Birkins from their proud owners from South East Asia.” But he also points out that to a lot of individuals, the fact that the Birkin is a handbag is beside the point. It reflects achievement, achievement and status. “It is still the ultimate status symbol, for first-timers who save for weeks on end to buy their first very Birkin to those experienced collectors that must have every new color or size in their wardrobe. Because the Birkin is much more than just a bag, it’s a lifestyle.”
