Frequently Asked Questions
What is the history of the Mini Evelyne?
Evelyne Bertrand, former head of the Hermès riding department, designed the original Evelyne in 1978. She intended for the Hermès Evelyne to be a carryall for horse groomers’ tools. The signature perforations forming the large H allowed airflow around the tools to keep them dry between uses and were considered to mark the bag’s back.
Around 2009, Hermès moved the Evelyne to the leather goods section and the bag became a more affordable option than the Birkins and Kellys. As a “fashion” bag, the signature perforated “H” was now intended to be turned around and shown to the world. The addition of a crossbody strap and a mini size increased demand for the bag among fashionistas worldwide.
Can I walk into Hermès and buy an Evelyne TPM?
It used to be easy to walk into a brand boutique and access Hermès Evelyne bags in a variety of colors. However, Evelyne’s rising popularity, together with the Hermès scarcity production strategy, makes the casual bags nearly as hard to find at a boutique as the Birkin or Kelly bag. The best way to see, touch, and try on Hermès Evelyne Mini bags in many different colors is to visit Madison Avenue Couture in Midtown Manhattan. You can also compare the mini Evelyne with the Evelyne PM-size bags.
