The Bleu Saphir Evelyne III PM in rich blue Clemence leather and palladium hardware prominently features a perforated Hermes "H" used once upon a time as a way to let air in the bag to dry out the equestrian goods it was originally intended for. In fact, the back was named after Evelyne Bertrand, who was the head of the riding department at Hermes. It was originally made in 1978 for equestrians to carry grooming equipment. In fact, the brand’s history, which spans back an impressive 180 years, is directly related to the horse trade, when patriarch Thierry Hermes set up a saddlery shop in Paris. He was catering to European noblemen who frequented the store and had learned the art of harness making during his time in Normandy, France’s horse country. This bag open ups to a matching suede interior. The adjustable shoulder strap means it can be worn comfortably as a cross body bag, making the Bleu Saphir Evelyne III PM Clemence with palladium hardware an ideal bag for everyday use while adding a pop of color to your ensemble.
