About this style

The Bolide was introduced in 1923 when Emile-Maurice Hermès created this handbag for his wife to be used for an automobile event in Paris.  The trapezoidal shape enabled it to be stowed into the trunk of a car with "lightning speed" (hence, the name Bolide, which is a term for meteor).  It was the first handbag to have a zipper closure.  Conceptualized as a piece for the emerging automobile age, the Bolide quickly became a "must have" fashion and travel accessory.

 

The Bolide comes in four sizes -- 27cm, 31cm, 35cm and 45cm, the latter that is best for traveling.
