Hermès Bolide Skateboard 31 Gold Togo Palladium Hardware
In the world of luxury handbags, function usually dictates form, but Hermès' latest creation, the Bolide Skate 31, challenges this notion by making function itself a statement. Unveiled on the Spring/Summer 2022 runway, this smaller version of the original Skateboard 65 pays homage to skateboarding - a sport once associated with counterculture but now a global phenomenon. The Bolide Skate is not an ordinary skateboard; it features a supple leather base layered over a sturdy aluminum plate, directly stitched to the upper, making it both an engineering marvel and a fashion accessory. This bag is not just visually striking, with attention to detail, such as the curved base painted to match Hermès' SS22 street art-inspired silk scarves, and four lugs resembling skateboard wheels, each bearing the Hermès logo. Fun fact - The Bolide handbag made history in 1931 as the first to feature a zipper closure.
