Hermès Teal Bolide 45cm in Ostrich Leather with Gold Hardware, 1997


This Hermès Bolide bag features two top handles, zip top closure and spacious interior lining in leather.


The Bolide has gone through several phases, but the idea for the bag dates back to 1923, when the first version was created to commemorate the launch of a new model of Bugatti. The word bolide meant meteor at first and then in the twentieth century the French called the fast new cars 'bolides'. Emile Hermes created this bag for a friend who was passionate about the automobile in 1923. After finding the zipper in America he attached this to the bolide and the bag as we know it was born.


Includes Lock, Keys and Dust bag.
