One of the Holy Trinity of Hermes bags, the Constance was created and constructed by Hermes in-house designer Catherine Chaillet in 1959. The bag became a hit amongst many famous style icons such as former First Lady of the United States, Jackie Kennedy and actresses Diane Krueger and Ashley Olsen.
Each Hermes Constance bag is created by a single craftsman, taking approximately 14 hours to finish. A more mod and youngish bag compared to its more ladylike and sophisticated Birkin and Kelly sisters, the Constance makes a great everyday AM to PM arm companion.
This Constance 18 is in pristine condition and has only been used once. It sports a new shade of blue called Bleu Azur, released last year at the Spring/Summer 2018 Collection. Crafted from Epsom leather, it bears an individual ‘C’ date stamp, marking it as a piece made in 2018. Additional items that come with this Constance, include a dust bag, box, felt cloth and the original receipt.
