The crème de la crème of the Hermes range, Birkin bags are chic, timeless and highly sought after making them the most popular of the designs. Over the years the Birkin has come in various sizes, colours and skins, changing and adapting seamlessly to the vogue of the time.
As it stands now, the smaller 25cm Birkin has become increasingly popular due to its cute size making it perfect for an evening event or popping out for a quick lunch with the girls. If you’re looking for something slightly bigger, the 30cm is more geared towards every day wear.
The Constance bag, popularised by Jackie Kennedy, is a superbly versatile shoulder bag and is far more difficult to source than other bags – particularly now that Hermes keep threatening discontinue this hands free style. Truly perfect for all occasions, the Constance is a must have staple in any woman’s wardrobe. Team with skinny jeans, Chanel jacket and Alexander McQueen scarf for Parisian day chic, or with your favourite couture dress for an extravagant soirée.
Whilst the Birkin is the signature of Hermes, in recent years the Kelly has become hugely popular due to its slender shape and strap design making it easier to carry. Opt for a 28cm one to house all of your day to day products or select a smaller size to glamorously compliment any dinner or event outfit.
It’s not just the standard Kelly design that has overtaken Birkin’s popularity recently, the Kelly Cut has also shared the limelight – presumably due to its dainty size making it fantastically adaptable and easy to carry.

HAC (HAUT À COURROIES)
Whilst the Birkin is the international symbol of Hermes, the Haut à Courroies (HAC) is the original. This bags was designed in the late 1800’s and was initially intended to carry riding boots and other equestrian equipment. However, in today’s world it is mainly used as a stylish luxury travel bag and is quite popular with men, too.
The main difference between the Birkin and HAC is the size; the HAC is much taller and normally comes in sizes of 40cm and above giving you plenty of space for all of your long haul flight carry on essentials. As well as this, the handles of the Haut à Courroies are shorter than the Birkin due to its intent to be carried in the hand rather than over the arm.
