Hermes Herbag Zip: Kelly Bag Twin Sister



Is the Hermes Kelly bag playing hide and seek?

You feel like you’ve visited every single store in the world and you are disappointed because you can’t find your dream bag. Well, I hope this can ease your pain. Allow me to introduce the Hermes Zip Herbag, this bag is popular thanks to its similar look like the famous Kelly bag.

The original Hermes Herbag was discontinued a long time ago, but the brand took another look at the design and decided to reissue. They re-released the Hermes Herbag in 2009 and added the term ‘Zip’ to its name, to avoid confusion.

You see, the Herbag zip has the same trapezoid body shape and the front flap, but with a different closure. Does it matter when it has the same charisma as the Kelly Bag? It also includes a padlock, versatile shoulder strap and a handle, in conclusion; you have the option to carry in multiple ways. Forget about the Kelly and you might even start to fallen in love with the Herbag Zip.

The most appeal is the back of the bag, which features a silver lock and an exterior zip pocket for your convenient. Both front and back has its own unique style which makes it all worthwhile.

But Hermes is always about luxurious; the brand, quality and price reveal it all. To top it off, you will find a small pouch bag in the interior for all your make-up accesories. The pouch is colored the same as the exterior.

If Hermes Kelly is still hiding and you are fed up of playing games, consider the Hermes Herbag Zip to be your new catch. The price range is also quite affordable. You can pick between 3 sizes: 31, 39 and the largest size Cabine 52cm.

The Hermes Herbag Zip 31 is priced at $2,250 USD and you can take the 39 home for $2,450 USD and €1.400 EUR.

    Hi Alex I was in London 3 weeks ago, walked into Sloane Str store and asked SA if she had a Herbag by any chance. She said they got one in that morning and it is for sale. I nearly pee’d my pants! It’s a navy 31 and of course I didn’t hesitate to buy her! Paid £1490 got back I think £200 in tax at the airport. Such a beautiful addition to my collection.

    Hi There,

    Im interested in buying the Hermes Herbag (size 31) or Zip Bag. I have called the Amsterdam, London, NewYork, Singapore, Bombay store & all have said the herbag is not available. Could i know the price of the zip bag?

    They also mentioned that they do not provide any details on the phone & i need to visit the store personally. I live in Dubai, bags here are more expensive, so i prefer to buy it from europe.

    FYI: I was at both Hermes store in Paris and they did not have any herbag available. In fact the St Honore store didn’t have any of the bags I wanted. My friend did buy a men’s wallet and the US conversion is about less than $1400 USD and the store advised that the tax refund is 10%. I finally found the Herbag in Barcelona at El Corte Ingles (see above comment). It was the only one left.

    • Anonymous April 24, 2014 Reply

      Oh and the store in Paris advised they don’t do wait list anymore but they could be just saying that because it was overwhelming for them since there was long line (queue) of people waiting to buy. It was extremely busy and not a really pleasant shopping experience where we normally would at least offered water (champagne at some places). Oh well. At least I have my bags now 🙂

      I thought they had 1 Hermes store in Barcelona, it’s funny that you couldn’t get it in Paris, But then again, a lot of tourist go to Paris just to buy designer bags and they go to Barcelona for the weather.

      It is such an awesome site, and I have been following your site. I was looking for herbag zip 31 for a long time. I am newbie to Hermes and thought to try my luck in Paris.
      I went to Paris FSH last week and spoke to the SA. I wanted a orange one and showed her the photo of it, and she checked and told me they didn’t have stock. I was told to try my luck in another store in Paris. Then, I walked around the store, asking another SA, hoping to try my luck. She ask me for the size and color, and I told her, mentioning that I really yearn to have it. Finally, she mentioned that they have 1 in yellow, she went in the back and bring it out. It is in orangey yellow, and I really love it at first sight. Without further consideration, I bought it. It is ard 1600 euros. I am very lucky.

      Here some tips: The SA told me that they do stocks in bags almost every day in Paris, for those who want to buy the bags, you can pop by and might be lucky to find your bag. Gd luck.

    I absolutely love this bag! I was debating another celine or a new givenchy but I’m sold on this Hermes herbag as soon as I saw it on your website! I’ll be in Paris, London (day trip), Barcelona and Madrid in that order. Are any if these locations easy to find these bag? I will be so thrilled if I can get my hands on one of these. Any suggestions to get one of these next month (apr 15-30). Btw I’ve been following your site the past year and have since bought a celine trapeze (purchased in sf) and mini chanel (Singapore) thanks to your insights. Thank you so

      Hi, thank you so much for your encouragement, this means a lot to us. About the Celine trapeze, they have just released a mini/small version. More pics are coming on… I was told about the Hermes Herbag Zip that you need to get on the waiting list for one year. (this is the case of one of our readers) But this bag is not like the Birkin or Kelly, you might be lucky and find one in Europe.

      • Anonymous April 9, 2014 Reply

        How do I get on the waitlisf? Do I call them or go to the store? Do you think they stock them well? Wow, a mini trapeze?! How cute! I’m looking for a bigger bag since my chanel I bought in Singapore was a mini already. If I’m nt able to get the herbag, do you think the Givenchy Antigona or the Celine phantom? I can’t decide if I can’t get the herbag! Thoughts? Thank you!!!!! Love your site!

          Alex April 12, 2014 Reply

          Hi, you should simply go to their store and ask, I think the Givenchy antigona is def. great and Celine Phantom too, but did you also checked the Celine Luggage, this bag is far more popular:

          Just to give you a couple more ideas:
          – You should also check the Fendi 2jours:

          • Anonymous April 13, 2014

            How cute is the Fendi! Love it!!!I think the Celine Luggage is super gorg but I think the Phantom suits me more if I am getting a Celine…but I’m really torn; definitely getting that. I’ll bet there next week so I will let you know what i decided on and pending availability. I cannot wait. THANK YOU!

            I can’t believe my eyes when I walked into the El Corte Ingles in Barcelona and saw the Herbag Zip 39 waiting on the display for me after just visiting the two Hermes stores in Paris and getting disappointed. The cost in Barcelona is 1700 Euro and the color I have is a brownish color. I was hoping the same color pictures on this page but the color I have will match everything so I’m happy with it. There is a 14% tax refund at this mall because the price is between 1500-2000 euro. It depends on the price. Before today I was so disappointed I actually ended up getting the two tone blue/black chanel crave (13% refund) They still had it even though its old from last season. Saw it in Singapore just 6 months ago. I also ended up getting the medium Givenchy Antigona (1550 euro) in light grey at the galeries de lafayette (13% refund). I can list my friends purchase after dinner but wanted to updated as soon as possible. Thank you for an awesome site!!!

          • Anonymous April 25, 2014

            Correction: sorry typo. Galeries lafayette tax refund is 12% not 13%. It was for celine n givenchy that I know of. My friend bought the celine all
            Soft for 1600 euro w 12% refund. FYI: your site listed $1800 euro for the prada saffiano. Is that the large size or medium? My friend got it for 1950 euro for the new one w the long strap w 15% refund at the prada store in Barcelona. Sorry so many emails but wanted to contribute whatever intel I had on this trip. Combined we purchased 2 Chanel WOC ($1260 euro in Paris), blue/black chanel crave, Hermes orangr men’s orange wallet and womens herbag, celine trapeze (yellow, white, tan color), celine black and yellow Interior wallet, cc unisex card holder, prada double bag w strap in red, light grey givenchy Antigona medium. Let me know if u need any info on these. Thanks again for your info…you
            helped a lot in helping me decide on the bags I want. :)))

      Alex October 25, 2013 Reply

      Hi Jen, not an easy question, it depends on your taste. (Herbag is discontinued btw, it’s now called Hermes Herbag Zip)

      – The Herbag has a lot of features similar to the Kelly, but if you decide to get the Kelly in the future, you will have two bags that look similar.
      – The Herbag style is easier, more like casual and minimal.
      – The Lady Dior bag is very elegant, but it can be worn either casual or chic.

    First of all, love your website, very useful details
    I’ve searching everywhere for this bag, it was love at first sight!

    I want to ask you, if you know where in Europe, has the highest chance for me to find it? And is it as difficult to get it as the Birkin and Kelly? Like can you just walk in, in the store and ask if they have a Herbag Zip Bag or? And which size do you prefer? 31 or 39?

    • Sassy September 30, 2013 Reply

      For the Herbag Zip bag you can, but the Birkin and Kelly are hard-to-say. For example, someone commented at our site lately that she bought the Birkin in Paris, but there was just one left. You should call the boutique to check their stock.

      I think both sizes are great, you should compare which one is more comfortable to your height.

    Hello Sassy! Unfortunately, hermes boutiques do not accept inquiries over the phone per SA. I have a friend who will be traveling to Europe. Do you think this hermes herbag zip will be available in any hermes boutique in Paris? I still do not understand how VAT saves a lot of money when you purchase in Europe. Would you please let me know how much would I be able to save if il let my friend purchase this bag in Paris just in case it is available? Thank you so much in advance. Again and again, you and your website is such a great help to us Purse Lovers

    • Sassy September 23, 2013 Reply

      Hi, yes of course.

      Say the bag cost €1.400, that’s with tax included. Paris tax-refund is around 12%, that’s 168 EUR.

      Your friend buy the bag in Hermes and tell the SA ‘I am tourist and I am going to apply for tax-refund’. The SA will write a ‘special’ receipt, which contains specific information about the bag, like prices and origin. Before your friend leave the country, he needs to go to the custom at the airport. He shows the’special’ receipt, fill in an application form, then the custom personally ‘check’ the Hermes bag. And if everything is oke, your friend gets a stamp on the form.

      He takes the form to a tax-refund company (also located at the Airport), it’s usually an external/affiliate company. And then the tax-refund will be processed. He will get 168 EUR on his bank account.

      Your friend ‘have to’ SHOW the goods to the custom before he can get a stamp. If he check-in his luggage too early with your Hermes bag inside, then you will not get the stamp.

    Hello Sassy! this website is very great and helpful. Does this come with different color?what is the leather made? And is the strap removable? Would this be available in any hermes store in California? Thank you so much.

    • Sassy September 16, 2013 Reply

      Thanks a lot! The bag is available in more colors than the rainbow: pink, brown, yellow, orange, purple, beige, red, black, blue, white. You should call-up your local hermes store to ask about the availability. The bag is made from canvas and hunter leather and includes a removable zipped flat pouch. I am not sure whether the strap is removable. I don’t think so. Keep us updated.
