Well, ladies I took off and went to the DC area Hermes yesterday. It was a spur of the moment trip. I got there around 5:00pm. The store was fairly empty but they were showing one lady some scarves. At any rate, I had a look around and I must say I love the new store. The last time I was there, they were still in their temporary residence while the store was being renovated. The inventory was WONDERFUL. They had this GORGEOUS plume that was done in white epsom calf leather with blue jean trim around the bag and blue jean zipper pulls. The inside of the bag was done in blue jean as well. Keith, the wonderful SA that I work with when I go there, said that occasionally they will do unique things like this with the plume. I think the retail for the bag was $6500. Can't remember exactly. They had three Paris Bombay bags_orange, white, black. They had two evelynes in the blue. A white picotin. Two ostrich bolides-black and a choclate color. They had a croc plume. And they had several kellys. They had one of the mini kellys in black in lizard. They had another mini kelly in what looked like suede, it was orange. They had a 32 cm kelly in chocolate with gold hardware that was a rigide. Then of course they had several garden party bags. I got the last twilly garden party and I am so in love. I also bought a scarf. It is one fo the 100 scarves they reissued for the reopening of the DC Hermes store. It is designed by an American artist, the only American artist to work for the company. In fact, this artist lives in Waco according to the manager. Because he is afraid of flying, reps from Hermes have to fly to Waco to meet with him. Part two is coming next.
