Introducing Hermes Lindy Bag
First designed in 2006, the Hermes Lindy bag made its debut on the Hermès Spring/Summer 2007 runway (in mostly pastel colors!). Since then, it has become an Hermès boutique staple.
Hermes has always been a needle in a haystack, it keeps on going regardless of the way, trying to conquer almost every sphere and every corner of the fashion world. It grasped the fact that structured handbags aren’t a cup of tea for many; rather they prefer snugly, slouchy and casual bags. So, knocking down its competitors and once again rendering everyone speechless by its innovative designs, this French luxury house introduced the Lindy Bag in Spring Summer 2007 fashion runaway.
Putting up the show for playful, creative and slouchy outlook and contrasting the previous structured silhouettes, the Hermes Lindy handbag was popularized in cities like Paris and Milan. Moreover, it is also expected to be the next it bag, seeing it’s one-off design. It’s the handbag where fad meets versatility, coming together to form an epitome of casualty. Though its first hit was in pastel colors, it’s now available in a rainbow of hues and shades.
As soon as the Lindy bags come in stock, they are sold right off the bat, it’s mostly popular amongst the well offs and the youngster who requires a sporty style. Being a multi function design with both handle and a shoulder strap, it has proved to be and amazing combo of beauty and functionality.
“Boxy, structured and compact” – the words which became a usual trait in every other Hermes bag, are hard to be seen in this new version. The bag is slouchy and snugly, it will change its shape and will mould according to your needs. Carry it by the two handles or be effortlessly stylish by carrying it with the aid of its adjustable shoulder strap, though it isn’t detachable akin to other Hermes bags.
Lindy is certainly a top-drawer bag with its unique lock system. Though it’s a bit cumbersome, it’s certainly classier than you’ve ever seen. Its a turn closure at the middle of the straps, you turn it once and a single strap is opened, you turn it twice and the other strap is unclosed and finally you turn the lock thrice to open the front. Unlike other handbags, you’ll also witness that it has rounded corners, five base studs for protection and extra two side pockets. Isn’t the bag too roomy for you!
It’s absolutely a no-brainer that you can’t put in your cell phone or some very valuable stuff in those side exterior pockets, as those are tight and a little bit unpractical. It may have been just put up for show.
Open the Lindy treasure and you would see a humongous compartment for your half of the world accessory. Hermes made in France logo above the twist lock and a leather-lining interior. Two inside patch pockets, two exterior pockets and a large single compartment, what more one can wish for! You can have all your cards, keys and cash in these pockets. It’s interesting, playful, creative and trendy all at the same time.
