High-End Pawn Shops are Now Making Loans on Hermès Handbags

Hermes

As people have realized that Hermès Birkins are a potentially more fruitful investment that the stock market or gold, an entire economy has sprung up around them and the few other designer bags that can demand decent resale prices. So many people want to buy bags at the Hermès flagship boutique in Paris that the store had to institute an appointment system; naturally, that resulted in enterprising locals sleeping on the sidewalk to sell places in line to wealthy shoppers. Now, pawn shops that traditionally have dealt in art and fine jewelry are cashing in.

These aren’t the type of pawn shops that the phrase probably brings to mind; in the original New York Times piece on the topic, the story centers around a family that runs two such locations, the first of which is in Beverly Hills, the second in a Manhattan office building. (The third location is slated for Chicago.) The Beverly Loan Company and New York Loan Company are run by Jordan Tabach-Bank, and although the former has been a family business since 1938, it took until this generation to add handbags to the repertoire, as well as things like fine wine and flatware.

Beyond their posh locations and discreet setups, the pawn shops work similarly to their lower-rent counterparts: people bring in their valuables and receive an amount of money in return, dependent upon value. If the owner returns in an agreed-upon amount of time and repays the loan, he or she can get her bag back. If not, Tabach-Bank is free to recoup his money (and then some) by reselling the bag. Tabach-Bank told the NYT that while many of his clients use the service for high-falutin reasons like accessing quick liquidity for investment purposes, others use it for the same reason anyone fences their belongings: they need some quick cash.

As for which bags work the best for him in which locations, Tabach-Bank, minces no words: neutrals in New York, bright colors in Beverly Hills and Birkins everywhere.

If you needed the cash but wanted to ultimately keep your bag, would you ever consider pawning a Birkin, if you have one?

Do you need a travel bag to style-up your outfit? Who can be your better companion than the Hermes Wallago Cabine Bag. This bag is practical, easy-to-carry and fashionable in all angles. It’s Hermes but it doesn’t scream Hermes at all. And there is just one mystery that we need to solve. Why is this bag called the Wallago?

Dictionary: Wallago is a catfhish that can be found in the rivers of Southern Asia.

Hmm…

The Design

Hermes-Wallago-Cabine-Bag-7

The Wallago Cabine Bag is specifically made to help you transport your personal belongings from A to B. It’s spacious, stylish and durable. It’s also designed with a clever flap pocket on the front. The sides are flexible and expandable in case you need to carry a lot of things.

Hermes-Wallago-Cabine-Bag-11

This is a very elegant bag and the exterior only is made with multiple pockets. Besides the front pocket, the back also features an extra zip pocket, which is hidden behind a leather patch – this will make sure that your most beloved essentials will be concealed and secured.

The bag also comes with a chic luggage tag hanging on the handles. And talking about handles, they’re purposely made extra-long for hand carry or elbow carry.

What’s more? It’s made from Togo Calfskin, which feels luxurious and impeccable at the same time.

The Interior

There are two sizes of this handbag available. One is easier to carry due to its size, but there is also a bigger size available in case the medium is not big enough. The Wallago Cabine Bags are purposely made for travelling, so the interior is spacious enough for all your daily essentials and more. And besides, this handbag is a bit slouchy and the side-wings can be expanded to carry a lot more stuff.

HERMES BOLIDE 1923 BAG

Hermes

Hermes-Bolide-1923-Bag

The Bolide Bag has joined in the Hermes Permanent Collection since 1923. It’s one of the iconic handbags just like the Kelly and Birkin Bag. Emile-Maurice Hermes, the grandson of the founder, designed this handbag exclusively for his wife in 1922. It was the first carryall with zip compartment, which was created to replace the usual metallic clasps. When crafting the Bolide Bag, Emile-Maurice Hermes was inspired by cars. This bag can easily be stored in the trunk of a sport car and thus it was given the name ‘sac pour l’auto. Later on the name was changed to Bolide.

For the 21th century and for the sake of fashion forward, Hermes updated the Bolide Bag with this contemporary Bolide 1923 Bag for the Cruise 2018 Collection.

The Design

Hermes-Bolide-1923-Bag-6

The Original Hermes Bolide Bag

Hermes changed some part and kept some part of the original Bolide Bag. If you compare the Bolide 1923 with the original version, you will notice that the new version is much more streamlined. The center leather patch has been removed as well as the stitched line that separated the upper and the lower part. The handles look the same, but it’s a bit tougher and appears to be larger because the size 30 is bigger. And while the original Bolide has a nice feminine curvy/round shape, the newer version is crafted with a big and round peach-like shape.

Both bags come with a chic luggage tag and bottom studs. And both bags are made with a detachable leather strap for shoulder or cross body carry.

The Hermes Bolide 1923 Bag is definitely crafted to look more futuristic, minimalistic but also classic. All the sophisticated lines or unnecessary designs have been removed. Also, this bag is made to maximize the storage because the size is made more round and bigger.

More over, this handbag is crafted from Taurillon Novillo, but there might be more leather options.

The Interior

The interior of the Bolide 1923 bag hasn’t changed much. Of course the inside is bigger, because the bag is also made bigger. When you open the bag, you will find the main compartment, which is quite large. There is also a patch pocket inside. And because this bag is secured with a zipper, no one can enter the bag without your notice when carrying.

The Prices And Sizes

The Hermes Bolide 1923 Bag in size 30 is measured 11.9’ x 9.1’ x 5.1’ (L x H x D) inches and priced at $8050 USD, €5500 euro, £5040 GBP via Hermes boutiques.

HERMES CINHETIC CLUTCH

Hermes

Hermes-Cinhetic-Clutch

There are two new handbags to look for in the Fall Winter 2017 Collection. First is the H Box Shoulder Bag, second is the new Cinhetic Bag. Both bags are recently introduced and look very modern.

Today we will be reviewing the Hermes Cinhetic Clutch Bag, but keep in mind that there is also a shoulder box bag version available. Now let’s dive into the details.

The Design

Hermes-Cinhetic-Clutch-4

The vision of the Cinhetic Bag is to look boxy and futuristic. That vision has been achieved if you take a closer look at the design. The font and the structure used to craft the new ‘H’ logo in the center looks more like a robotic-symbol, something that’s made in the future.

The Cinhetic Bag is designed in square shape and a flap. To get into the interior, you will need to turn the ‘H’ lock. This bag is made from Mysore goatskin, which is a soft but durable leather. It’s the perfect choice for this bag, because it makes you feel comfortable and light when carrying this clutch.

The overall look of the Cinhetic Bag is elegant, minimalistic and ladylike. It matches to almost all of the styles in your wardrobe.

The Interior

Hermes-Cinhetic-Clutch-3

Turn the ‘H’ lock to get into the interior. Inside you will find one small compartment to store all your evening accessories. And there is also a patch pocket to store other important stuff like credit cards and paper money. The interior is not very spacious, so the amount of essentials it can carry is also limited.

The Sizes And Prices

Measuring 18.3 x 17 x 8.5 cm, priced at €3450 euro, £3170 GBP via Hermes boutiques
