Finding the Right Handbags Purses Bags for You

An integral part of fashion, handbags and purses have been indispensable accessories ever since we began to carry around personal items. Level of craftsmanship, style and shape matters — from coin purses in ancient Greece to early 20th-century opera bags and onward, handbags have evolved considerably over the years to meet our needs and desires, whether or not you happen to be prioritizing functionality over a flashy exterior.

Once, a single “It” handbag ruled each fashion season. No more. Today, handbag lovers are savvier and have a wider range of shopping options. Nevertheless, classic bags still rule.

“It is not a fashion bag — it is a statement bag,” says Mightychic's Debra Kent of Hermès's widely beloved accessories. “When you carry an iconic Hermès bag — Birkin, Kelly, Constance — no one knows how long you have been into this culture or if you are a newbie. Your status is validated immediately.”

First released in 1997, Fendi's Baguette rose to fame along with Carrie Bradshaw, the Sex and the City character portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker. Recently, the design has seen such a resurgence in popularity that Fendi has reissued it.

They are part of design history, so owning a handbag has meaning. As New York–based fashion historian Sarah C. Byrd says, “You have made the choice to invest in this piece because you understand the value of it in the past and in the future to come.”

From a 1980s Chanel black leather quilted mini buckle bag to the rare Hermès Birkin 30cm Himalayan with diamond hardware to a range of 19th century bags, find a rich variety of designer handbags and purses spanning numerous brands on 1stDibs — seasonal “It” designation no longer needed.

Questions About Hermes Constance Bags
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 29, 2020

    When you’re trying to authenticate your Hermès Constance bag, there are a few things to remember. For one, there is no “authenticity card” — Hermès doesn’t accompany its Constance bags with any such certificate. There is a label stamp inside any authentic Hermès Constance handbag that reads “Hermès Paris Made in France” — the lettering will be clear and it won’t appear blocky or oversized. Lettering on this label that looks anything other than professionally set and lightly pressed into the leather may mean that your Hermès Constance bag is a fake.

    Stitching is a good metric to consider because each Hermès Constance handbag is hand-sewn by Hermès artisans (spotting a fake Birkin bag requires similar inspections) according to Hermès’s celebrated saddle-stitching technique, so while the sew lines will have some inconsistencies, the work will be demonstrative of the company’s commitment to quality, and the stitching will indicate as much.

    Hardware on your authentic Hermès Constance bag is always made of a genuine precious metal — the metal is typically brass that is hand-polished and plated with fine gold, palladium or permabrass, while the H-shaped clasp has been silvered, lacquered, set with diamonds, and more over the years. This metal will feel substantial, and it will not tarnish over time.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 29, 2020

    On the front of your Hermès Constance bag, the metal “H” doubles as both an insignia for the high fashion goods manufacturer and a clasp to keep your bag snapped shut. To open your Hermès Constance handbag, grab the metal “H” — position your fingers directly around the horizontal middle bar of the letter, so that your fingers are curled underneath it, and pull out toward you. The key to opening the clasp without scratching the accessory’s leather is to pull only at the horizontal bar. The bag opens and closes with the help of a spring-loaded mechanism that is concealed on each of the bar’s ends fixed to the flap.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 29, 2020

    No, vintage Hermès Constance bags do not have serial numbers.
