* Launched in 1967, the Constance bag – named after the creator’s daughter – gives its shape to the line of wallets revealing the ingenious H-shaped clasp: the central bar lifts up and releases the flap to open it. Perfect day-to-day companions, depending on their design, these wallets with contemporary features can be slipped into your bag, carried on the shoulder or worn as a belt.

Like every other iconic bag, better if you buy it second hand…Constance in French means constancy, in other words perseverance, trustworthiness and being true to yourself: qualities which can all be applied to Hermès. The importance of being Constance…In 1967, Jean-Louis Dumas asked a fashionable young woman to design a bag for Hermès. The designer was pregnant, so she quite naturally named the bag Constance, after her daughter. It’s an urban bag with a quietly sporty spirit, a practical and casual bag for women with a confident stride; in short, a bag of its time, a time in which everything is possible. It’s a bag that is also timeless, the epitome of elegance in movement, a Constance that is passed on from mother to daughter.

A timeless bag, the Constance has been reinventing itself for fifty years. Thanks to an innovative system for adjusting the shoulder strap, which slides through its two hasps, we have one bag with two options, true to the spirit of Hermès accessories. It can be worn as desired, over the shoulder, long or short, elegant and practical for riding an electric bike! The H-shaped clasp has been golden or silvered, lacquered, set with diamonds, covered with enamel, and inlaid with a marquetry of precious stones. The bag has gracefully accepted being made smaller, into mini and micro versions. It has grown bigger in the Élan version, and has been transformed into a satchel. Would you like it in printed or embroidered leather, in a precious skin, leather and canvas, or silk? Alternatively, to stimulate the imagination, how about the Au Bout du Monde model?
