The Apple Hermes Watch Is Already Here!

Hermes

When the Apple Hermès watch was announced last September, and later released to select stores and boutiques around the world in October, two significant industries were merged together: technology and fashion. The Apple Watch was a breakthrough device that flew off the shelves, and adding Hermès in the mix makes everything a great deal more exciting – and of course more costly as well.

Apple Hermes Watch Launch

Beginning on this Friday, Jan. 22, this enthralling innovation will be available to more than just those willing to travel to the boutique locations to pick up a watch. It will become available on both Apple.com and Hermes.com, where the whole collection will be ready to order. The collection consists of three styles, each of which features straps of handmade leather and customizable stainless steel Apple Watch face: The “Single Tour,” the “Double Tour,” and the “Cuff.” Spread out among these three strap options are a total of ten models, which come in a variety of colors.

This collaboration was beneficial to both parties here, as Apple was working to have the Apple Watch viewed more as a luxury item, both technologically and fashionably, and Hermès was able to benefit from the esteemed publicity of the Apple brand. There was a lot of debate at the beginning of the Apple Watch’s production in April 2015 as to whether or not the product could be stylish or not. This wasn’t a problem for avid Apple fans, who generally weren’t concerned with how chic the product was, but instead with the technology behind it. And rightly so, but this barrier caused sales to be lower than they otherwise could have been, and likely now will be with this partnership. The watch still racked up 1 million preorders in the first day alone, but those numbers would have been supplemented by members of the fashion community if they had looked a bit more stylish.

Better late than never! Despite the hefty price tag, the Apple Hermès watches are looking great. If you’re looking to buy one of these watches for yourself, you’ll be looking to pay $1,100 for the Single Tour, $1,250 for the Double Tour, or $1,500 for the Cuff. So for this upgrade from the standard Apple Watch, the price is more than tripling, for the priciest option.

The Hermes Kelly Craze: Let’s Talk ‘Kelly Cut’

Hermes

Hermes knows how to turn a bag into a crowd favorite, a star, and even a legend. Each of Hermes’ bag designs is a true work of innovation that can’t help but be admired. The love and appreciation for Hermes’ greatest bags is contagious. PurseBop has a little bit of a love bug for all things Kelly (i.e.: #PurseBopsGoneKellyCrazy – no shame!) and that crush has spread to the Kelly Cut bag too.

A couple of weeks ago, we took your hand in investigating the Hermes mini craze. Now, let’s explore everything that the Hermes Kelly family has to offer from the original bag to much more!

The Story of an Icon

If you’re a bag aficionado, even just the utter of the words “Kelly bag” probably makes your heart flutter. In fact, “Kelly” has become so natural to our Hermes vocabulary that we often have to remind ourselves of how this namesake came to be. To debrief you on a quick history, in 1954, actor Grace Kelly was performing in Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief, and worked extensively with the bag on set. The affair spiraled from there, and in 1956 she was photographed using the bag to cover her pregnant belly from the paparazzi. This moment became iconic in itself, and the bag became tremendously popular because it was endorsed by hollywood actress turned princess, Grace Kelly. The bag, previously named Sac à dépêches, officially became known as the Kelly bag in 1977.

The idea for the bag was actually conceived in the late 1800s and redesigned in the 1930s by Hermes’ son-in-law, Robert Dumas. The Sac à dépêches was originally meant to be a spacious travel bag that fit into a car door and allowed riders to carry their saddles.

#PurseBopsGoneKellyCrazy

The Kelly bag holds a prestigious chapter in bag history. Its timeless, elegant frame has naturally won over many fashionistas.  “Kelly” and “Birkin” are both names that have come to be synonymous with Hermes. The Birkin is considered the ultimate holy grail bag to some, and the Kelly bag is almost equally as loved and sought after. In fact, speaking to Hermes experts it seems the Kelly bag may have taken the lead in popularity. Sometimes, it’s hard to choose whether you’re a Team Birkin or a Team Kelly girl since each bag is such a masterpiece of it’s own. Either way, it’s safe to say #PurseBopsGoneKellyCrazy! Luckily, Hermes makes it easy to appreciate the heritage of the Kelly in many different forms.

From Bag to Clutch: The Kelly Cut, The Kelly Longue, and The Kelly Pouchette

The Kelly Longue and the Kelly Cut are shrunken down, clutch style versions of the Kelly bag. While the two styles are very similar, there are very significant and noticeable differences between the two. The Kelly Longue has a distinct trapezoidal shape much like the structure of the original Kelly bag. Compared to the Kelly Cut, the Kelly Longue is a little wider and can potentially hold more than a traditional, flat clutch. In comparison, the Kelly Cut is a sharp rectangular shape and a little longer the Kelly Longue, but shorter height wise. Both bags feature top handles. The Kelly Longue was discontinued around 2008, and the Kelly Cut was introduced as a new version of the style.

The Kelly Pouchette still mimics a smaller, clutch type of Kelly but is more like a small bag. Compared to both the Kelly Cut and Kelly Longue, the Kelly Pouchette is wider and has more volume. This makes the Kelly Pouchette more spacious and functional.

Kelly Cut Love

As many fashionistas would agree, the Kelly Cut is the perfect addition to any H collection. Its sleek look easily lends to formal or evening occasions. However, it also serves well as a daytime bag due to its accessible size. Even though the Kelly Cut scores A+ on many factors, it is unfortunately quiet elusive in the Hermes world. The stock of Kelly Cut bags is very limited, and often they are only offered to elite and experienced clientele.

Hermes Still Confident Despite Chinese Economic Downturn

Hermes

With the rest of the luxury market fretting about China’s economic woes, Hermes, helmed by CEO Axel Dumas, is holding steady and still confident that it can hit its 8% growth target. While the company’s stock is down, its confidence isn’t. Referring to market fluctuations arising from China’s currency situation, Dumas calmly asserted to the WSJ, “We’ve resisted this in the past.”

i16s.bPdi_Mg

Contrary to other luxury brands like Prada, Hermes reported strong international first-half profit growth and revenue, with a significant portion of growth coming from Japan. Japan is one of the top destinations for Chinese tourists, so this data is not surprising. While much of  the fashion press primarily focuses on Europe, Japan’s sales numbers may actually provide a better perspective on the state of the Chinese luxury consumer and should be watched accordingly.

From this WSJ piece, it doesn’t appear Hermes is introducing any price changes. They’re seemingly confident in their position as the top luxury brand. But, in a rapidly changing global economic environment the status quo isn’t always the safest play. Keep an eye on the Japan numbers, if there’s any weakness there,  a price cut in China could be possible after all…

What is this new tote we see? I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a feeling that it’s gonna be the next big thing…think of it as the next Kelly or Birkin, although for now, we haven’t got a clue about details just yet! And as you can see, it has a distinct closure on it. It’s nothing like the Constance or Herbag closure, although you can say that it has a slight resemblance to the Bearn (like a minimalist ‘H’, although the mechanism obviously differs). Also, we can see that the bag is obviously spacious and fully-functional, with simple lines that add a much-needed flair and sophistication. Well-done, Hermes!
