This blog has been entirely dedicated to one of the most breathtakingly elegant and chic pieces of the season that we have just got in and thought we would share with you.

This burgundy Constance bag by French fashion house Hermes is an incredibly rare find. The vintage crocodile skin combined with gold hardware guarantees you being the envy of every passerby in the street, at a restaurant, or amongst friends. The adjustable strap means you choose how to wear it; as a smart handbag for work or formal functions, or on your shoulder to free your hands, allowing you to flick through all the gorgeous clothes on the rails when you go shopping, or to meet and greet at a soiree.

With warm colours which perfectly match the winter season, the mulled-wine shade and the Christmassy gold hardware on this Constance can be dressed up or down to go with any outfit, be it jeans and a blazer, or your New Years Eve dress! Worn over a sophisticated dress, or a mammoth fur coat, the shoulder bag doesn't get in your way and always fits like a key in a lock to your wanted look.

According to the Telegraph this week, shoulder bags are a necessity for this season, whether your preferred choice is Chanel or this distinct Hermes Constance.

What is most convenient, as well as stylish, is a classic shoulder bag that is -according to the Telegraph Fashion section -  "big enough to fit in your essentials without causing a shoulder dislocation" and that rests comfortably on your side.

The H in silver or gold metal in front of the bag echoes, of course, the H buckle on the Constance belt. This bag is truly a classic: Jacqueline Kennedy owned several Constance bags and she thought they best represented Hermès polished perfection.

The Constance Bag is perfect: it’s not too big nor too small, it’s a classic and, as such, will never become outdated. We know most women drool over Birkin and Kelly bags, but a Constance is the one for us, no doubt.
