A latest entrant of the Hermès handbag family is the Hermès halzan bag – a four-way bag that can be used as a tote, a cross body, a shoulder bag or a clutch. Modern design combined with it multi-purpose functionality makes it a humble bag that will suit your everyday wear. The Halzan Bags first made its appearance in the Fall 2014 runways and it was worn on the shoulder and as a cross body bag. The Hermès is known to design their bags with finest leather materials.
The bag is made from a soft, durable and grained leather called clemence bull calfskin. This leather has been in vogue since the 80s and is turning out to be a classic these days. It is heavy yet durable leather that makes it one of the slouchier leathers and seen as a great advantage for women.
Since this versatile bag is worn four ways, it has become a modern endeavor for the Hermès. You can fold the flap out to get a large tote bag, fold the flap and lock it with a buckle and you get a chic little clutch bag. Otherwise, simply attach it with a shoulder strap and wear it cross body or just shorten the shoulder strap to get a shoulder bag. When worn on the shoulder or as a cross body bag, one cannot see any exterior branding.
It is feather light and spacious enough to fit an iPad comfortably. It comes with two back and front pockets each and one inside pocket. The shoulder strap or stirrup-shaped handles can be adjusted or removed according to your choice. The shoulder straps measure around 30 x 13 x 10 (L x H x D) cm. It comes in various Hermès halzan bag colors – gold, blanc, bleu saphir, etoupe, rouge H, rogue casque, black, white and etain. The leather on the exterior is beautiful, and the interiors come in pristine condition.
Whether you are looking for a Hermès Blue-Ocean Black Togo or a simple Hermès Shoulder Birkin Bag, remember it has been hand stitched by skilled craftsmen. Remember to keep the bag away from water as it can lead to water blisters that are not possible to remove. Immediately wipe the bag after it has come in contact with water. If the edges of the durable yet heavy leather starts cracking, get it refurbished.
The ultimate luxury bag regarded as the ‘it’ bag these days sells for $5000 in the US and goes up to 3000 pounds and above in the European market.
