The Bolide Bag has joined in the Hermes Permanent Collection since 1923. It’s one of the iconic handbags just like the Kelly and Birkin Bag. Emile-Maurice Hermes, the grandson of the founder, designed this handbag exclusively for his wife in 1922. It was the first carryall with zip compartment, which was created to replace the usual metallic clasps. When crafting the Bolide Bag, Emile-Maurice Hermes was inspired by cars. This bag can easily be stored in the trunk of a sport car and thus it was given the name ‘sac pour l’auto. Later on the name was changed to Bolide. For the 21th century and for the sake of fashion forward, Hermes updated the Bolide Bag with this contemporary Bolide 1923 Bag for the Cruise 2018 Collection.
The Original Hermes Bolide Bag
Hermes changed some part and kept some part of the original Bolide Bag. If you compare the Bolide 1923 with the original version, you will notice that the new version is much more streamlined. The center leather patch has been removed as well as the stitched line that separated the upper and the lower part. The handles look the same, but it’s a bit tougher and appears to be larger because the size 30 is bigger. And while the original Bolide has a nice feminine curvy/round shape, the newer version is crafted with a big and round peach-like shape. Both bags come with a chic luggage tag and bottom studs. And both bags are made with a detachable leather strap for shoulder or cross body carry. The Hermes Bolide 1923 Bag is definitely crafted to look more futuristic, minimalistic but also classic. All the sophisticated lines or unnecessary designs have been removed. Also, this bag is made to maximize the storage because the size is made more round and bigger. More over, this handbag is crafted from Taurillon Novillo, but there might be more leather options.
