Any fashionista worth their salt knows how difficult it is to get your dream Hermes handbag. When even the world’s most coveted celebrities may have to wait years on the Hermes waiting list, sourcing your own can be a difficult task.

These ‘Horseshoe’ bags are curated by the expert artisans at Hermes workshops using the custom specifications and specific instructions giving by clients. With an array of exciting possibilities (can you imagine how you would feel if you had free reign to create your own Hermes?) these special order bags often feature totally new and unique combinations of exotic skins, leather and distinct hardware, making them some of Hermes’ most sensational pieces ever produced. Many Horseshoe bags feature an extravagant bi or tri-colour combinations not found on any other Hermes product past, present, or even future.
