It was first-introduced during the Fall Winter 2016 Runway, but we have never chatted about it extensively. However, we did mention the pochette version, which was not included with a leather strap – shame! But anyways, let’s dive into the Hermes Baton de Craie Bag, it deserves your attention too, you know!

The Design


I’m still figuring out the name. Baton de Craie means Chalk Stick in French and this bag is indeed inspired by Chalk Stick. But what has that to do with the bag? Perhaps it’s the closure piece on the top. But anyways, this handbag is quite special as it is inspired by a Hermes piece from the 1920’s. Vintage-ish?

The Baton de Craie Bag is crafted with curvy round shape. The important is the leather as it feels luxurious because it’s made from Epsom Calfskin. This can be your next-great everyday bag because the style is streamlined, minimal and easy to pair with summer and winter outfits. Isn’t that called timeless?

The center features the masterpiece, which is a silver – palladium plated closure (perhaps there is also a gold version, or in the future). It comes with a long leather strap for cross body carry and of course, also shoulder carry. But the body is quite unique if you take look at the side. The bottom is chubbier than the top just like a wine bottle.

The Interior

This bag fits all your basic essentials that are need to survive on daily basis. And maybe there is still room for some extra’s. This is not an oversized handbag, but are you looking for one as an everyday bag?

The Prices And Sizes

The small size measures 11.9’ x 12.6’ x 3.1’ (L x H x D) inches, priced at $6300 USD via Hermes boutiques.
