This Bolide 31cm handbag in togo leather is considered to be one of the most classic Hermes bags. It was originally designed in 1922 and still produced and sought after almost 100 years!
Émile-Maurice Hermes was granted the exclusive rights to use the zipper for leather goods and clothing and became the first to introduce the device in France. The first leather handbag (with zippers) was introduced soon after Émile-Maurice's wife complained of not finding a suitable one to her liking. Greatly inspired by the front grill of a Bugatti automobile, he used the dome shape to create a handbag for her. It was originally called the Bugatti but later changed its name after the famous car maker started making its own bags.
The Bolide, meaning fast car, is a practical and lovely bag to carry. The option of having a lock and key and shoulder strap is essential for women on the move day or night. Whether you are traveling the countryside, the city, or to and from work, you will find this bag extremely versatile.
The leather on this particular handbag has a small caviar textured grain with a nice non-slouchy and not overly rigid shape. Currently retails for $7,000+
