Hermes SpecialtyBags

Hermes Specialty Birkins: These bags are for the Drama Queen in you. "Look at me, I'm brave, and I have excellent taste!" says each of these gorgeous Hermes stand-outs.
We love this 35 cm Tri-Color Birkin because its fun and fresh. Get it here from the Vintage Contessa.  

This lovely Picotin, often called the "Baby Birkin" is casual and tasteful. Fun fact: it's one of Hermes' only handbags that does not truly fasten closed.

JPG or Jean Paul Gaultier is the Shoulder Birkin. It's 42cm across with handles
that are longer and go over the shoulder. We love it in contrasting two-tone.

A twist on the classic Birkin, this Arlequin Birkin has six different colors, making it the ultimate color block accessory. No matter how you wear it, this bag will make a statement. 

The Hermes Pochette is styled after the Kelly, but its the size of a small clutch (22cm). It's perfect for the minimalist.

The 32 cm Oxford Ghilies Kelly, makes us swoon! The extra details on the original Kelly design make this bag absolutely lust worthy!

And because we love it so much, here's another 32 cm Ghilies, in fauve.


Hermes Birkin Sizes

Every girl needs a Birkin, but what's the right size? Here is a list of sizes and just a few leather styles that will make you melt for Hermes.

This is the 45 cm Birkin in Black Ardenne, it has longer straps and is great for the traveling man or woman.

The 40 cm Vert Veronese with Gold Hardware Birkin for the toting man or woman. This bag is perfect for those who carry around everything but the kitchen sink.

The Classic 35 cm Hermes Birkin, this is the Holy Grail of handbags. This bag is a piece of art, that will not go unnoticed. 

Slightly smaller, the 30 cm Birkin is elegant and simple. We it love the Purple Fjord leather.

And last but not least 25 cm Hermes Birkin, this is the smallest Birkin made by Hermes. Its amazing, especially in blue Nilo Croc, yum!
