Introducing the Hermes Constance Bag. Created in 1969, the bag was designed by Catherine Chaillet and named after her newborn daughter.

 

Sewn entirely by hand, this small bag requires around fourteen hours of time and attention to produce. It’s marked by an unmistakable silver “H” closure, thanks to its adjustable shoulder strap, the bag has been prized for how easily it carries from day to night. a022cf8259377d39d7696f8c8a9ce576-e1423137420947 ef0deb0e8d6d0a50112a340ece570eb4

 

Constance, the girl, went on to become a successful and well respected French journalist and writer. Constance, the bag, aged in a similarly graceful way. Attracting wearers as diverse as Diane Kruger, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Anna Dello Russo, the Constance has certainly stood the test of time.
