Our hearts skip a beat whenever Hermès announces they will release a new bag. And there's defintely no dissapointment here when it comes to the Bâton de Craie Shoulder Bag. An elegant, yet minimalist design that will win the hearts of many bag-loving ladies.
Will this Hermès gem beat the Birkin?
The bag was part of the Fall/Winter 2016 show. Although not many bag were seen of the runway, they got introduced beforehand and everyone got a little sneak peek. Its little sister, the Pochette got released earlier this year. The big difference is the length of the bag and the practical fact that the Bâton de Craie can be worn cross-body.
The clean design is made from hunter cowhide and due to its minimal shape, all the attention goes to the jewel-like clasp. The clasp is platinum plated and a real eyecatcher. And ofcourse the leather strap in the shape of an H is the cherry on top! It's lightweight and has room for all your essentials. And just like we're used to from Hermès, this item comes in various colours.
