What do you think about when you say “Hermes”? Besides the mythological character, that is? Fashion-wise, I think of luxury and leather – the two, bound with an H make my day, my wardrobe, my lowest consumer shallow joy. I admit, I have such a weak spot for oh-so many things Hermes!
But you already knew that, didn’t you? Now I have to adjust my Hermes vision because yesterday I was faced with a coloring book from Hermes (yes, paper, it’s odd, isn’t it?) and today, my Inbox was honored with yet another letter from Hermes. Featuring (are you ready? Yeah, I know, I spoiled it all with the title, still… are you ready?) the new Enamel Hermes Bracelet!
Called “Femme aux Semelles de Vent” (if my German is right, this should read “Woman with Wind Leather Shoes” or “Woman with Wind Soles” give me a hand here, please? Frenchgirl says Woman with Wind Soles goes better – so be it!). It’s a wide enamel bracelet in silver and palladium plated or simply gold plated ready to be yours for $510 (a piece). Now, I came before you earlier guilty as charged for Hermes day dreaming. Still, an enamel bracelet from Hermes? It’s like I’d buy Levi’s milk or something. Yes, yes, that twisted! Do you think it’ll work?
