Bags of the Week: Clutch Bags
Welcome to the first May edition of Baghunter’s Bags of the Week and with summer on the way we will be looking at the best bags to accompany your summer outfits during the next month. To kick things off, we look at three stunning clutch bags, the perfect bags to wear during warm summer evenings whether it’s a friendly get together or a formal dinner. The bags under the spotlight this week are a Hermes Kelly Long Wallet/Clutch Alligator Havanne, a Hermes Jige Elan Clutch 29 Cummin, and a Hermes Kelly Pochette Mini Soufre.
Hermes Kelly Long Wallet/Clutch Alligator Havanne
First up is one of the most sought after clutch bags in the world – a Hermes Kelly Long Wallet/Clutch Alligator Havanne. Crafted exquisitely from matte alligator, one of the rarest and most sought after skins used by Hermes, the havanne color is perfectly offset with gold hardware to create a sophisticated summer look. The scales on the bag are of various sizes and shapes, making it completely unique in that respect, with the alligator material also used to form the straps on which the buckles are attached.
The detail found throughout this clutch is truly remarkable, with the interior of the bag sanded down for a soft and gentle texture, completely opposite to the bumpy patterns of the alligator scales on the exterior of the bag. The hand stitching found around the edges of the bag and details on the leather strap are of the highest quality, with each stitch the exact same distance apart from its neighbors.
Measuring 8” x 5”, this Hermes Kelly Long Wallet/Clutch Alligator Havanne is the ideal size for holding the essentials on a summer evening. The design, color, and texture of the clutch all point towards formal, however, it is also possible to use this clutch as an accompaniment to a casual outfit and in casual surroundings. Acquired in excellent condition, meaning there are little to no signs of wear, this long wallet/clutch comes with an original Hermes box and a sleeper and is currently available for VIP Members only.
Hermes Jige Elan Clutch 29 Cummin
Summer is all about bright colors which reflect the sunny skies and happy atmosphere and next up we have the perfect reflection of summer – a Hermes Jige Elan Clutch 29 Cummin. This wonderful clutch is the perfect summer bag, encompassing everything summer is about with its bright color and playfulness. The hot cumin color is bound to stand out wherever you take it and will match all the bright colors of your summer wardrobe while the combination of swift leather and lizard skin materials create a soft to the touch exterior to the clutch.
You can make a powerful fashion statement with this bag, as well as purchase an extremely rare and valuable clutch. Details such as the large ‘H’ on the lock and the supreme quality of the hand stitching makes it clear that this is a Hermes bag, while the smooth texture of the leather will make you want to hold it on your hands all night!
Measuring 11.5” x 6” x 1”, this clutch is the perfect size for evening wear with the slimness of the bag a major bonus. However, you can still fit all your essentials inside and the interior of the clutch is surprisingly roomy. Acquired in excellent condition, meaning that the bag shows little to no signs of any wear or tear, this clutch comes with the CITES, a sleeper, and a Hermes box. It is currently available for purchase by VIP members only.
Hermes Kelly Pochette Mini Soufre
Rounding off this week’s clutches is an absolutely stunning Hermes Kelly Pochette Mini Soufre. Boasting an identical design to the famous Kelly bag, this clutch is crafted from swift leather which has been dyed a soufre color. This off-beige, neutral color is perfect to accompany any other color, making it ideal to match up with summer evening or day wear. The palladium hardware found on the bag accentuates the soufre color, and is also the perfect shade to match almost any outfit or color combination.
An incredibly rare and sought after bag, this clutch boasts fine details throughout. Each stitch on the bag has been done by hand from a single artisan, with the slits where the strap runs through cut to perfection. The handle is crafted from the same material as the clutch itself with the design exactly the same as the famous Kelly bag. The shape of the bag is also perfect for storing extra essentials inside and still maintaining its shape.
Measuring 22cm x 7cm x 3cm, the bag is a perfect size to be carried around in the evenings or during a lunch date. Due to the Kelly design, it is possible to carry the bag using the handle in the palm of your hand, using the shoulder strap, or even tucked under the armpit. Acquired in pristine condition, meaning the bag is in the same condition as when it left the factory, this Kelly clutch comes with a box, dust bag, and felt, and is currently available to VIP Members only.
