Very few bags have as high a level of fandom as the Birkin and the Kelly, but keep your hopes high because there’s a new star on the radar. The Hermès Herbag was designed in 1998 as an airy, more modernised version of the Kelly – using the similar closure technique and the shape, but created in a lighter fabric combination – a mix of canvas and leather. With the latest sherbet-coloured version, this summer seems like the perfect time to revive the 1990s luxury statement. Wear your Herbag as an addition to a full denim-on-denim look and a pair of woven wedges for a chic contemporary throwback.
The Hermès Herbag in Toile H and Hunter calfskin is £1,670, available from Hermes, 155 New Bond Street, London W1S 2UA.
