HORSE PLAY

A new Her­mès bag fills us with un­bri­dled plea­sure

Wallpaper - - Newspaper -

Her­mès has been rid­ing a one-horse race in its cre­ation of this sea­son’s hottest ac­ces­sory. Part ob­jet, part cross-body bag, the ‘Galop d’her­mès’ minaudière is in­spired by the French brand’s eques­trian Sa­mar­cande pa­per­weight. Crafted from two metal shells cov­ered in Milo lamb­skin, it draws on Her­mès’ sad­dle-mak­ing his­tory: it opens by un­hook­ing the bri­dle run­ning along the horse’s nose and open­ing the clasp at its top. We also reckon it evokes a chess piece, and we can’t wait to take our knight on the town.

‘GALOP’ BAG, £7,330, by Her­mès
