Hermes 2018 Special Order Rose Pourpre Evercolor & Trench Leather Lining Constance III 24 Bag with Rose Extreme Stitching & Rose Gold Hardware
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 particular Constance bag holds particular allure due to its exclusivity. The Special Order or 'SO' (as aficionados refer to their own creations) is the pinnacle of Hermes collecting. Loyal clients of Hermes spend a lot of time curating their collection before being offered the privilege of placing a special order. It can take years to gain the opportunity and once ordered it will take another 6 to 18 months to receive. Stamped with the oh-so-special Horse Shoe Stamp (HSS) next to the Hermès logo, this bag is a statement of exclusivity.
