Ok so in these past days i have been wearing all H bags again and have decided that i will invest in more discrete options from the french maison such as the plit plat and the bolide padlock and maybe another jige in color or an eegee point is that the H movement is at its peak and I have seen or identified it in what I can say is a three phase compilation resulting in the perfect storm.and since social anthropology and the survival of tradition is an interest of mine I shall attempt to write down my thoughts they just keep bouncing in my head asking to get opinions .
1.- the Vintage resurgence, Hermes true fans have moved on to vintage, we see that the recollection of hermes real and true vintage at super boutiques like Ludot Gppert or maxifields have super boosted the presence of the brand and its history. and the super fashion delegates have decided to endorse this , Mira Duma is now wearing a stunning collection of vintage Kellys and has decided to store her supersized mega crocs and leathers. The H lady BAG is back and im so very very happy about this effect. In this same note I wish to express that having moved on to vintage the craftsmanship in every piece i now have the privilege to enjoy is amazing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is one of the three notes that I want to send out so we can comment what we have seen and what we have lived concerning Vintage.
2.- in the world of Hermes Birkin and Kelly are now demode …… I keep seeing everyone in this mini divine, world of ours Luxury world that is. comment on how they are worried the birkin and Kelly are now everywhere and no longer a unique part of the luxury ladder … as someone who wears Hermes bags for the quality and leather im not concerned but this has been on the luxury info waves for quite some time and the fact that Mr. cristophe L. has decided to ban the beautiful classic B&K from his shows does make me wonder so again just putting it out there to see what you think.
3.- number two brings us to three, if the beautiful perfect bags are so out of the look what of all this Hermes leather types in all of the other maisons de marroquinerie like Vuitton and its haute marroquinerie or its new alma in grained leather, or the revival of Moreaux and Moynat. not to mention goyards expansion to leather and exotics.
so what do we think is the H effect more powerful that it ever was before ….. and if so what are we H lovers up to next. after all we do have a head start in this wave of perfect leather works …….. whats next PFH lets share. Best as always .BIRKEL.
