Introducing Hermes Jypsiere Bag
The Hermes Jypsiere bag first premiered in the Hermes Fall/Winter 2008 collection under the vision of previous artistic director Jean-Paul Gaultier. For many, the Jypsiere looks like a re-interpretation of the Kelly or Birkin Bag in messenger form. Gaultier felt inspired to create a casual, traditional bag with a twist that complemented the nature, hunting, and fishing motif of the 2008 show. The Jypsiere captures the “gypsy spirit”, and is perfect for carrying everything on the go. The swivel clasp, straps, and brackets are reminiscent of the elegance of the Birkin, but the thick strap and rounded body give the bag a casual vibe and encourages functional use.
Like an Alchemist lost in the desserts, if you can’t stick to one place, always on foot, travelling from place to place then here, Hermes added a messenger bag to it’s collection. The best part? Well, the bag is unisexual with a touch folk spirit, a brand new creation by your much loved legendary house – Hermes; it’s called by the name Jypsiere Bag.
A quick look of this bag will instantly tell you that this Hermes handbag is inspired by the saddle style, add on the casual and relaxed feel and you’ll get a Jypsiere! The ever-bubbly artistic director of Hermes – Jean Paul Gaultier introduced the autumn 2008 collection inspired by the divinity of nature. Preliminary activities like fishing and hunting were to be given credit as a fruitful source of inspiration behind this collection, and as par of course, this interesting bag had to be included in the collection. The traditional essence was turned upside down to create the magic, i.e. a jumbo bag (“gibeciere”)
With its bespeckled closure for all to see, just below the Hermes authentic signature, the bag can be recognized as one of the siblings of Kelly, and its naturally news for Kelly lovers! Manifold pockets, brackets, side strap and clasp design and the one-of-a-kind body, the legendary Jypsiere survived since ages, or more practically shall we say for six whole years. And that’s saying much time for a newbie!
