Almost a year ago (SS2015), Hermes released a new bag called the Cherche Midi. I admit, and as I had mentioned in a recent post, I had not really been focused on Hermes bags lately because of all the other new brands and bags that I’ve been discovering.
So when I was presented with the super cute Cherche Midi in person, I fell pretty hard for it. It is sleek, super cute, and features the signature Hermes chaine d’ancre link prominently while also serving as the bag’s locking clasp.
It was a struggle to open at first but when the sales associate opened it without any difficulty at first try, I knew the only other “obstacle” to my purchasing the bag was to see if both my Samsung Note phones fit into it.
And yes, they did *uhhh ohhhh lol* The bag comes with that cushion form to keep the bag’s shape.
I do love the bag because even if the strap is permanently linked to the body, it can also be tucked into the bag to make it into a box clutch.
The strap is also adjustable, a big plus! This bag is not for packrats for sure, but so many women bring two bags around these days that the Cherche Midi could definitely be the 1st of the 2 bags 🙂
The price is honestly a little steeper than other Hermes regular leather bags (with the exception of the Hermes kelly pochette) in this size category, but it’s much, much better a bag to carry than the flat Kelly Cut (which becomes so bulky and bumpy when you put your bare essentials into it).
The Hermes Cherche Midi bag is something I highly recommend for those who like smaller bags 🙂 It’s a pleasant departure from the usual Hermes Kelly, Constance, and Birkin bags.
