Bags of the Week: Summer Colors
Welcome to a new edition of Baghunter’s Bags of the Week, an opportunity to gain an insight into a selected few of the bags we have on offer. With summer beginning, our theme of the week is summer colors. These bags are perfect for warm summer evenings and hot summer days, and are the perfect complement to any summer outfit. The three bags getting the Bags of the Week treatment this week are a Hermes Birkin 35 H Orange PHW, a Hermes Birkin 25 Rouge Exotic Lizard, and a Chanel Double Flap Jumbo Bag in Yellow.
Hermes Birkin 35 H Orange PHW
Eye-catching, breath-taking, and the epiphany of summer, this Hermes Birkin 35 H Orange PHW is the ideal bag to show off during the warm summer months. Crafted from Epsom leather, the bag boasts a stunning H Orange color, a classic in the Hermes color palette and a wonderful color to compliment bright summer attire. The Epsom leather is strong, durable, and highly scratch resistant, making it the ideal material for a bag that will undergo heavy use. This means you can easily use this Birkin as a day bag during the summer.
The orange color is wonderfully offset by palladium hardware, which is also scratch resistant and designed for heavy use. Each piece of hardware is riveted onto the bag with four identical rivets for maximum stability. Small details on the bag such as the hand stitching found on the clasp and around the top of the bag add extra assurance that this is a quality Hermes product. The combination of all these features make this bag a strong fashion statement for the summer months.
As a day bag you will need plenty of room inside to hold all the essentials and other items for a long summer’s day and this bag delivers with aplomb. Featured in the coveted size 35, this bag has plenty of storage space for everything you will need, measuring 14” x 11” x 7”. Acquired in pristine condition, meaning it is in the same condition as when it left the factory in Paris, the bag comes with a lock, keys, clochette, sleeper, raincoat, and original Hermes box.

Hermes Birkin 25 Rouge Exotic Lizard
Next up we have a slightly different style of summer bag, a Hermes Birkin 25 Rouge Exotic Lizard. Yes, the bag is also a Birkin, but it emanates a completely different type of summer vibe. First, the material is an exotic lizard skin. This is a rare and fragile material and one which isn’t as suited to heavy use as the bag we examined above. The rouge exotic color which has been dyed into the material is also different. It is an extremely difficult color to get right on lizard skin and is also a perfect summer evening color.
Offsetting the wonderful rouge exotic color is the palladium hardware which is fund on the lock, clasp, and base studs of the bag. The palladium works extremely well with the lizard skin and the rouge exotic color, providing a combination which is sure to wow on summer evenings. You can also see on the picture below that the Hermes stamp above the claps features the single line “-“ meaning that this is genuine lizard skin from which the bag is crafted. Also notice the other small details such as the precise hand stitching on the handles and top of the bag.
Another feature of the bag which makes it perfect for summer evenings is the size. Features in the coveted and much desired size 25, this bag is the ideal size for holding essentials and still remaining dainty and petit. Measuring 10” x 8” x 5” it will look wonderful in the crook of your arm at an evening summer garden party. Acquired in pristine condition, meaning that it is in the same condition as when it left the factory in Paris, the bag comes with a lock, keys, clochette, sleeper, raincoat, and Hermes box.
