Hermès Constance 18 Rouge Casaque Tadelakt leather Gold Hardware
The Hermès Constance bag, a quintessentially elegant and classic design, was originally conceived by Catherine Chaillet in 1959. The bag was named "Constance" in honor of Chaillet's fifth child, marking an auspicious occasion as the very first Constance bag left the Hermès production store on the same day as her daughter's birth.
With its distinctive leather shoulder strap design, the Constance bag can hang freely, ensuring effortless chic and convenience. The bag's alluring charm quickly captivated the attention of Jacqueline Kennedy, the esteemed former First Lady of the United States. Known for her exquisite taste and style, Kennedy brought this Hermès creation to the forefront of fashion, popularizing it amongst Hollywood's elite and fashion connoisseurs worldwide.
Hermès is famed for their impressive spectrum of hues, with a particularly breathtaking selection of reds. This specific piece, exemplifying the brand's mastery in color palettes, features the vibrant Rouge Casaque, a stunning shade of red that is reminiscent of a striking scarlet. The bag is further adorned with rich gold hardware, enhancing its sophistication.
