Hermes Black Sombrero Imprime Fermoir Special Edition Summer Night Mini Constance III 18 Bag
The Constance bag was designed by Catherine Chaillet in 1959 and was given its name in honour of her fifth child, Constance, having delivered the baby the same day the first Constance bag left the Hermes production store. With its leather shoulder strap allowing the bag to hang freely, it soon became the favourite of former First Lady of the United States, Jacqueline Kennedy who popularised the Constance amongst Hollywood’s elite.
It takes 14 hours for a single skilled artisan to construct the bag from the finest materials. This rare and whimsical design was from the Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Hermès partnered with British architect and artist Nigel Peake to create two mirroring designs that resemble the “One Two Three and Away We Go” Birkin of the same season. The design was done in two colorways, one in a bright and colorful scheme, dubbed the “On A Summer Day” Constance. The other, done in varying shades of black, mirrors the same design but with a darker nocturnal twist. This aptly named “On A Summer Night” is what we present for sale. Sought after for its exclusivity and rarity, this Limited Edition Constance is crafted from Sombrero Imprime Fermoir leather in Noir Black. The black enamel hardware is finished with a palladium plated edge to define the 'H' clasp. This striking bag is the ultimate representation of hand craftsmanship and refined elegance. Attainable by few but admired by many.
