What is the ultimate starter every day bag from Hermes?

Hello everyone! Until now, I have only been purchasing scarves, small accessories and clothes from Hermes. Things are about to change though because of a "job upgrade" and I feel like I need an elegant new work bag to match! I have seen two very attractive options at my local Hermes store: The Atlas and the Victoria bags! The two are stunning and practical, yet there is a thousand pound difference between the two. If there are other elegant yet discreet options, let me know! I am looking for a bag that will not necessarily steel the attention in the boardroom as I don't want to make others uncomfortable with my shopping addiction lol! Any suggestions?

Also, I did check that both fit my large agenda as well as my daily essentials!

Perhaps you may wish to consider the all leather Garden Party. It's very easy to carry, beautifully made (of course), and perfect for the office!

ITA. Leather Garden Party is elegant and understated.
The Victoria is also a very chic under the radar H bag (I have been ogling it, myself :P)

Paris Bombay - the large one that is more roomy tote but with a zipper. Kipp has a thread somewhere on it.

i think for starter bag, i'd suggest the Garden Party as well.

however, between the two you mentioned, I'd go for Victoria. The smaller size Atlas still seem a bit awkward to me. perhaps other tpf members who have it may provide us with some fabulous modelling shots?

I'll suggest either the Garden Party or the Victoria. Both are very chic options that are classic and under-the-radar. I won't go with the Atlas because I find the design not very Hermes somehow? HTH!

I'd go for the Victoria. It's lowkey like the GP, but somehow more elegant, KWIM? It's definitely the next bag I'm going for, after my Picotin
