Hermès Fortunio



This bright cheery clutch from Hermes is an all-new bag (well, not exactly new since it is claimed that this design was inspired by another previously released in the 30s) that features a V-shaped clasp that actually looks like a fortune cookie if you ask us. Is that maybe why it is called the Fortunio?

And with the first colour launched in Orange Poppy (which in our opinion is the perfect shade for this summery June), the 29.5 cm by 19.6 cm Evercolor leather clutch is also rather sizeable so it will pretty much fit most of your everyday essentials within the two inner compartments, with space for a small notebook and writing materials for jotting down important notes (or sketching images) on the go.

This clutch has yet to hit our local stores, so stay tuned for more information. Otherwise, you could check the Hermès stores overseas if you’re travelling, where it retails at USD5900.

It looks like the bi-color trend is picking up the phase in the world of fashion. Taking its cue and knowing when to strike while the iron is hot, Hermes takes the lead by introducing to the bag community its Bi-Color Birkin Bag.

A classic and an iconic fashion staple, the Birkin is a favorite among bag enthusiasts and this time around we are seeing it in haute couture bi-color design. As you can see, the handles and the sangles are in the same brownish color while the canvas itself is sporting a bold and solid color thus complementing and contrasting one another. The touret and the plaque on the other hand are in gold-tone hardware. Lastly, the Hermes logo is tastefully and artfully placed in the upper middle for snappy brand recognition.

This might come as a surprise for many but who doesn’t love to see a new bicolor Birkin bag, right? Every now and then, seeing significant changes in our cult favorite Birkin is definitely a pick-me-upper and puts us in a good mood. We do think that the bicolor design does more good than harm as it allows the Birkin Bag to continue and push it to reach the zenith of icon status.

The Hermes Soie Cool Bag


Hermes Soie Cool Detail

Today I wanted to share with you a review on one of my favorite new bags for summer – the Hermes Soie Cool. This is one of those items that was always a bit on my radar, but which I had never really given much thought about. That is, until I found myself sandwiched between two packs of very eager groups of shoppers during one of my last visits to my favorite Hermes boutique while in Paris. Usually I can stand crowds quite well and have a decent tolerance to being jostled (I have extensive experience waiting in line at many an Asian restaurant) but I found myself really tired and ended up retreating into a comfortable corner to cower and wait for our favorite salesperson. Actually, I didn’t know it at the time – but I was already pregnant! So maybe that is why I was so tired.

Anyway, I was sitting down and staring aimlessly into the abyss, when my eyes happened to settle onto this bag in one of the display cases. And really…as soon as I saw it – I fell in love! If any of you have read The Godfather, I was basically struck by the thunderbolt. I just kept staring and staring at the bag…and when my salesperson came, I said I had to see it immediately.

Hermes Soie Cool

I think this bag is just so cool. The braided straps, the easy bucket shape, the way you can wear it on your shoulder or as a backpack, everything. Plus, I really just fell in love with this particular combination – both the barenia leather (other versions may have clemence or fjord), and the print and color of the scarf. I have always admired the “Brazil” print that Hermes does, and this was my first item with the design.

The silk used in the bag also appears to the be thicker version used in the “Silk In” wallets and the like. Our salesperson recommend it over another bag which I’ve always admired – the Silky City – because she said it would be stiffer and keep some shape.

See how easy this bag is to wear? I really think it’s the perfect summer bag.

And of course, the Soie Coie fits quite a bit due to its simple shape. You can see the tiniest peek of its orange lining here – I need to get a better photo of that. And, it’s crazy light (especially for those of us used to heavy leather bags), because of its silk fabric and minimal hardware.

Hermes Soie Cool What FIts Inside

All in all – the perfect summer bag. I love it, and think that this is a highly underrated bag from one of my favorite brands.

Hermes Soie Cool Brazil

My Soie Cool is in the “Medium” size, though the small is REALLY tiny, just so you know. It’s available at Hermes and priced between $2200 for the regular clemence version, and a little more – $2425 – for the Barenia. I love both leathers, but I have to say that the Barenia is luscious!

If you have any more questions or comments about the Soie Cool – feel free to leave a comment. Thanks for reading!
