Please tell me which Hermes I saw??!

  1. So I'm in NYC right outside Bergdorf Goodman, and a stunning older woman walks by with an even more stunning orange ostrich bag. It was similar to an Hermes bolide, but had some subtle differences: no little oval of leather near the top, and on the bottom, two little strips of leather came up either side for an inch or so, like the top half of an "H." In other words, the leather panel that usually comprises the bottom of a bolide overlapped up the sides of the bag a bit in a decorative way. I stopped her and asked her if she wouldn't mind telling me where she got her bag, and she said "Hermes." But I've been googling it, and it bears no resemblance to any Hermes bag I can find an image of!! Can anyone help me figure out what it was? I will stop by the NYC Hermes store next time I'm in NYC, but that won't be for several months...

    Thank you ladies...
  2. Bolide 1923 (Web II)
  3. Thank you!!!
  4. Actually, this sounds more like the Escapada/Escapade bag. On each side of this bag, the top half of an H does come up about an inch or so.
  5. Here are pics I found! Is this it?
  6. whoa OT! what a beauty!! I've never seen! Does Hermes still make it? :tender:
  7. I love that! So elegant!
  8. Hey, this is lovely! I don't think I've ever seen it before!
  9. Geez, are just amazing! What is the name of this bag??? It's really quite lovely......
  10. It's called Escapade :smile:
  11. This is one of my favorites...and I just asked my SA a couple of weeks ago if they are still being made...he said no...sigh! I really wanted to get one!! I have seen a couple on ebay here and there - but if anyone here ever wanted to part with theirs PLEASE let me know!!!
  12. LUCY, your Hermes knowledge is absolutely amazing...:tender:
  13. I have seen a few ladies carrying this in Palm Beach, but never knew the name. It is a beautiful bag in person.

    Oh, and OT is truly amazing!
  14. Thank you all so much. I am 99% positive that I saw the Bolide 1923, but the other bag is quite lovely as well!
  15. :shame: ladies.

    Hoping, from your description (esp. of the "top half of an H" coming up the sides) it sounds more like the Escapade, but if you insist it's a Bolide 1923/Web II, then that could be it. Is this the bag?
