Hermes Jypsiere Bag
Take your broken ring inherited from your grandma, visit the finest jewelry store and re-make it into a necklace.
Here’s a fact, Hermes fans had been yelling for a more casual version of the Kelly Tote. And when there are addictions needed to be cured, it’s the job of Hermes to invent a new drug.
This is the story of how the Hermes Jypsiere Bag was born, it was released for the Fall 2008 Collection, meaning it has survived for six long years. But haven’t you noticed? Doesn’t the Jypsiere look a bit like the Kelly?
The Hermes Jypsiere Bag is the messenger bag of the iconic Kelly Tote, it’s a reinterpretation. It’s a remarkable creation that goes beyond our expectation – the round shape with curves on the bottom, an adjustable shoulder strap, a Kelly Tote not on your hands, but around your shoulder.
One notable detail that makes you think about the Hermes Kelly Tote instantly, is the iconic Kelly closure on the center with strap. It’s beautifully crafted in silver hardware, with the brand’s signature marked.
