About this style

The Hermes Constance was introduced in 1959 and instantly became an Hermes staple. It is named after Constance after the fifth child of the designer, Catherine Chaillet, who actually left Hermes around the time her daughter was born.

Only slightly tweaked since its introduction, the Constance has remained a coveted handbag despite changes in fashion. Relatively simple in design _ a front flap, large H metal closure, gusseted sides and adjustable shoulder strap _ the Constance is understated elegance. It can be worn casually, to work, as well as to dinner or cocktails. (The crocodile Constance makes a lovely evening bag.) It was often seen on the arms of Jacqueline Kennedy; recently it has been seen on well known actresses as Rachel Bilson, Diane Kruger, Sofia Vergara, the Olsen sisters, Rachel McAdams and others.

The classic Constance was made of box leather and in the 23cm or 18cm size. The Constance has not changed much in style; most notably the strap has been lengthened so it can be worn crossbody or on the shoulder. Today, the Constance is available in four sizes _ Micro (14cm), Mini (18cm), 24cm and Elan (a 25cm more rectangular version introduced in 2010). In addition to the classic Constances, there is the Cartable, a 29mm version with an enamel H and shorter strap, and the Constance wallet, which can double as a clutch in the long version.

Today, Constance handbags are often proving to be more difficult to find than Birkins and Kellys. When available, they can be found in a variety of leathers and exotic skins in classic and seasonal colors.
