A truly stunning Constance 24cm with De Camp Dechainee Toile Ficelle-Bordeaux Palladium Hardware - A Special Edition bag from Hermes. Like any classic Hermes bag, the Constance has a long history with an anecdotal founding story. First created in 1959 by in-house designer Catherine Chaillet, the bag was shortly thereafter named after Chaillet’s 5th child, who was born on the very day the first Constance was sold! The Constance was an immediate hit and toted by the likes of Jackie O, who sparked a trend among America’s fashionistas of the time.
The Constance is painstakingly-crafted, living up to the Hermes ideal of excellence. In fact, each Constance is made by a single artisan and takes 14 hours to make! The quality is unparalleled, and Hermès’ reputation does not disappoint. The Constance is, in a phrase, the ideal crossbody (or shoulder bag!). Its clean lines and sharp structure make for both glamor and elegance, adding that perfect and effortless “put-together” touch to any look.
