Though perhaps it doesn’t have the air of mystery and exclusivity that the Kelly and Birkin do ), the Bolide has been a long-time celebrity and Hermès-aficionado favorite. The Bolide has fans all over the blogosphere who exalt its classic beauty and perfect functionality.

Here are 3 Good Reasons to Consider the Bolide:

- It’s Perfect for Travel: Inspired by the age of automobile production and designed as a travel bag, the Bolide has perfect functionality for road trips and transcontinental flights. The Bolide Secret has a zippered compartment perfect for passports, keys, and other items.

- It’s Ideal for the Working Woman: With a diverse range of sizes, the Bolide could certainly be used as a work bag, as the 35 and 45 can easily store small laptops and notebooks.

- The Bolide is Understated and Chic: A favorite in Paris and Tokyo, the Bolide has a more simple design than some of Hermès’ other selections, making it a classic, discrete beauty.

When Emile-Maurice Hermès was traveling in North America, he visited Henry Ford’s automobile factories and discovered a mechanism used on the cloth tops of cars: the zipper. When he returned to France, Hermès filed a patent for the zipper and adapted it for his purses. In 1923, Hermès debuted The Bolide: the first purse with a zipper. Initially named “le sac pour l’auto,“ the Bolide literally means comet, inspired by a nickname for sport cars.

Before we talk specific materials, it’s important to establish that the Bolide comes in two different styles: Mou and Rigide. Mou is a soft leather, which is more casual, while Rigide is sturdier and harder.

Leathers the Bolide is Commonly Available in:

Epsom: Easy to clean and with anti-scratch capabilities, the Epsom pattern is pressed into the leather. The material is laminated and has a clean, polished appearance.

Clemence: Matte and with relatively large cells, Clemence leather provides a natural look with anti-scratch capabilities.

Sikkim: Sikkim leather is incredibly soft and buttery. It is used for the Bolide Mou bags, and has little to no grain.
