Founded by Thierry Hermes, the legendary high fashion luxury goods house was began as a harness workshop in Paris in 1837. Why we say legendary is because the first ladies’ bags with zip closures is from Hermes. The company patented the zipper in France during the 20s.
The very first Hermes handbags were introduced by Hermes in 1922 as a full leather handbag. In 1956, the new Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly carried the Sac à dépêches (also known as the Kelly bag) and appeared in Life magazine. This had made the brand even more popular.
The quality, functionality, and history behind the brand had made it become one of the most sought-after handbags in the world. This also explains why some of celebrities give their full support to the brand like Lady Gaga, Victoria Beckham, and Kim Kardashian who had recently spent $100,000 on handbags at Hermes Paris.
