Was never a fan of the Bolide but I love the cleaner look and the size of the 25. Asked my SA about it and she said that my store is only getting it in Epsom in the colors Etoupe, Framboise, Mauve Sylvestre, Nata, Sesame and Alezan. Reserved the one in Mauve Sylvestre! Can‘t wait! I hope I can wear it crossbody (164 cm).

Is your store in the US? Just curious because the 25 seems to only appear on the European H sites. TIA.

Thanks...I was afraid you were going to say that. Hopefully we’ll see some in the US.
They are definitely coming to the US - my US SA was the one that told me about them in the first place. And other US based members have shared that they received info of this size from their SAs too. It’s probably just not here yet, we seem to be having general delays in seeing new season stuff recently, things tends to hit the shelves in Asia and Europe first. So just gotta be more patient! I think the best option is to let your SA know that you are interested and ask them to keep an eye out for you.

Happy to share my new bolide 25 epsom GHW, pictures here next to bolide 27 in gris asphalt swift. Both are very similar in size . The bolide 25 strap is slightly thicker and 4 cm shorter compared to bolide 27. My MaiTai bag insert for bolide 27 fits the bolide 25 as well.

:loveeyes: Gorgeous bags! Do you find that your 25’s handles are much smaller than those on your 27?

+1! Never been a fan of the Bolide, but the 1923-25 is stunning!:love: Hope to be able to get one soon as I'm based in Europe, too!
Would you mind posting a pic when you get it?

I already have the 27 and the mini, do you think it’s worth getting the 25? Or is it too similar? :smile:

I intend to rehome my bolide 27 soon. I prefer the bolide 25 as it has a cleaner look. However, the bolide 27 has longer handles which is more comfortable than the 25. I use the shoulder strap more so the short handles are less of an issue for me. A mini bolide has its place in one’s collection and can be carried crossbody. I also have a bolide 31. Bolides are my workhorses.

Hello, seriously thinking to add this bolide 25 in epsom in color bleu orage. I will need your advices, should i take it? I love the color and very understated bag. What do you guy say about pro and con in bolide? Thank you everyone :smile:
I always thought Bolide was a beautiful bag and have tried many of them in different Hermes stores, HOWEVER I did not end up buying one. Every time I tried 31, I thought it was gorgeous, but too big. When I tried a Mini, I was under impression it was too small, so I guess the size is what prevented me from buying it. I am currently following H website for Bolide 25 and in case I see one in the colour I like, I believe I will order it.
Unfortunately I have not seen 25 in real life, so I can not be certain about it!
