The 10 Most Popular Hermes Bags

The Bags That Define Hermes

Listed in order of popularity, from the most renowned to the merely notable.

  1. Birkin image Birkin

    The Birkin is arguably one of the most iconic handbags in the world of fashion. Introduced in the 1980s, the bag owes its name to actress Jane Birkin. The story goes that after a chance encounter with the then Hermès CEO on a plane, where she lamented the impracticality of her bag, the Birkin was born. Distinguished by its two handles, flap, and clasp closure, it's a tote that exudes luxury. Seen on the arms of countless celebrities and featured in numerous TV shows and movies, it's no wonder its popularity remains unwavering. Typically crafted from leather, the Birkin also comes in exotic materials like crocodile and ostrich, with Togo leather being among the most popular.

  2. Kelly image Kelly

    Second only to the Birkin in fame, the Kelly bag has a rich history that predates its more popular sibling. Introduced in the 1930s, it wasn't until Grace Kelly shielded herself from paparazzi with the bag in the 1950s that it gained its moniker and iconic status. Structurally, the Kelly can be distinguished by its single handle and comes with a detachable shoulder strap. While it also has a flap and clasp like the Birkin, its trapezoid shape sets it apart. Renowned for its elegance, the Kelly is a top-handle bag but can transition into a crossbody for versatility. The bag is often crafted from leather, with Box Calf being particularly sought after.

It's a crossbody bag, perfect for those seeking both style and functionality. The Evelyne is distinctive with its sporty yet elegant appeal, making it a favorite for more casual outings. Primarily made from Clemence leather, it's durable and retains its shape, making it ideal for everyday use.
