    Fun fact: a guy called Pierre-Yves Labey designed the Octogone. He used to be a bag designer for Hermès; he was responsible for the Shark Bolide, the Cherche Midi, the Cityback, the Verrou, the Plitplat, among other things. He's now working for Berluti.

    These are his sketches, inspiration, and the paper model for Octogone:

  7. Thank you so much from sharing this! I love knowing the history of this style. I’m heading over to his Instagram account right now!

  8. I joined the Octogone Club in June! Think it’s chic without the rodeo and cute with it. Just use it as a size comparison anyways. The leather shoulder strap gives a more sophisticated look than the canvas strap that gives a sporty look. Thanks for letting me share!

  9. May I ask where you found this particular version? I love it with the leather strap in this neutral color, (which appears to be either indigo or noir.)
     
  10. Not for me, but I'm so glad that Hermes makes a variety of bag, so everyone can find something to love.

    Sharing an Octogone I was offered today. The thicker strap has been scaled down and is no longer in canvas. I will sleep on it.
     
  12. @finding_nemo and @periogirl28: is the new version strap adjustable to short shoulder wear like the Cherche Midi?? Thanks!
     
  13. I think not that high as my Cherche Midi, even on the shortest but the store can always punch the extra hole for you.
