We may want every new bag that hits the market, but the fact of the matter is that we couldn’t (or at least shouldn’t) actually buy every single one. It’s all about picking and choosing. While the occasional trendy piece is a justified indulgence, what you really want to invest in are the classics.
Since she just a girl, Pascale Mussard, the great-great-great granddaughter of Hermès founder Thierry Hermès, has been collecting scraps from the iconic house’s workshops on Rue du Faubourg St.-Honoré (where she spent her childhood…how jealous are we?!).

There are women who are merely front-row fixtures, and then there’s Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz. You can always count on the always-elegant Deena to raise the style bar during fashion week. The terrifyingly chic fashion entrepreneur is the owner of D’NA boutique.

I have always maintained that I could turn my Hermès bags inside-out and use them; they’re that good.
These aren’t exactly the typical vacation must-haves that you can throw in your raffia tote and leave on the beach while you wade out into sea. They’re more like what you’d be wearing while lounging on the deck of a 210-footer out on the ocean! Would you indulge in these luxe accessories for your next tropical getaway?
Hermès is as well-known for their meticulously crafted silk scarves (I know women who collect them and choose not to wear them, but frame them on their walls!) as they are for their perfectly crafted – and wildly sought-after – bags. Now the two have come together to effortless, luxurious (and effortlessly luxurious) effects, as only Hermès could execute.
Two starlets who couldn’t be more different, united by one bag – the Birkin. Pamela Anderson is looking amazing these days, no? The chic pixie cut, the full skirt…and hey, a little Hermès never hurt.
