Hermès Evelyne III

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: HERMÈS

Considering I have 2 of these (3 if you count the mini one that I sold away awhile back), it’s a surprise even to myself that I haven’t blogged about them yet. Honestly I can’t remember either (#oldpeoplebrain) but it wouldn’t matter to those new to this blog so we might as well start over.

One of the most affordable of bags you’ll ever find at Hermès (which is already one good reason to consider investing in it for yourself), the Evelyne III is also as straight-forward as it gets, a saddle-shaped sling that comes with a snap-button closure and an outside pocket for easy access.

On the other side, all you’ll find is a perforated H, which is also the side that’s supposed to be on your body when you are carrying this bag. Why? Because the holes are purely functional and meant to allow air circulation between the bag and your body when carried over long periods of time, be it in the full leather or twill canvas (shown above) versions. In other words, carrying the H on the outside is just showing off and a definite no-no.

Made available with an adjustable sling, it’s also lightweight, hardwearing and comes in a huge array of colours, which makes putting down good money for them so much easier. Available in three sizes (the PM measures 30 cm by 29 cm, the GM is 33 cm by 31 cm and the TGM which comes in at 42 cm by 40cm), I actually prefer the GM for casual weekends when one’s cafe-hopping-movie-watching-window-shopping and don’t really need to carry that much around.

Colours are seasonable and pretty much depends on what’s available when you walk into any Hermès store, but for those who are keen, there are full leather GM ones at Scotts Square (Black) and Ngee Ann City (Pink and Yellow) where they are priced atSGD5300 apiece.

And if anyone sees a Evelyne III GM in Vert Anglais (a stunning deep olive green), do let me know, ok?

Hermes Evelyne PM Handbag

Categories:Other Brands

Last year while I was in Paris, I tried a Hermes Evelyne III PM bag and I instantly fell in love with the design, functionality and comfort of this cross-body bag. It doesn’t have a very complicated look, but it is very practical and spacious. It feels like the perfect choice if you want to look stylish when you’re going to work, on errands, shopping or sightseeing on your holiday.

Authentic Hermes Evelyne

I didn’t buy the Hermes Evelyne III PM then because I couldn’t even get close to its price- about $3,400. But this summer while I was preparing for my trip in Rome I realized that I need a bag that is large enough to accommodate all my tourist essentials and super-chic so I can match it with my breezy summer outfits. This is how I realized that I need to buy an Evelyne bag…“pronto”! J

As I didn’t trip over a small fortune in the last year, I still couldn’t afford the original Hermes Evelyne so I decided to buy a replica bag online. I found the model that I like on Ukshopbagonline.co.uk. Before I placed my order, I asked at the store if it looks just like in the pictures they post on the site and if it is a perfect reproduction of the Hermes Evelyn III PM. They confirmed that it is and that they only sell accurate replicas of designer purses. Everything about these knockoffs is almost identical to the real thing. But guess what, it isn’t!

When the mail man delivered my Hermes Evelyn III PM replica bag, I was surprised to see that the purse I received does not look at all like the Evelyn III or like the I and II for that matter. I turned this fake Hermes upside down and the only thing it has in common with the Evelyn III is the perforated logo. The rest is totally wrong.

Below there are a couple of photos of this so called Evelyn replica. The first thing that you notice as being off is the shape of the bag. The Hermes Evelyn III has the bottom of the purse rounded and nicely outlined by the structured sides while the top is shaped as an inverted arch. Its design is gracious, simple and well balanced. On the other hand, my poor quality replica doesn’t have a well-defined shape. It looks flimsy and disproportioned. The bottom and top part are straight and the sides aren’t wide and thick as on the original Evelyn PM.

Totally Wrong Replica Evelyne Purse

The handles are also wrong. These should be wider and sturdier. Also, the hardware is colored in a tacky yellow gold whereas the authentic purse has silver metallic parts. But the ugliest part of this Hermes Evelyn III PM replica bag is the stitching. I really don’t know how they could ruin the initial design so badly. Instead of using a brown colored thread similar to the leather, they’ve used a thick white thread. The stitching is sloppy, uneven and has many loose threads. Plus, the edges of the brown leather are covered in a black plastic-looking coating that looks very badly. There are some portions of the fake bag where you can even see actual glue stains.

This Hermes Evelyn III PM knockoff really is a disaster and I can’t believe the nerves this store has to pretend that it is identical to the real thing. I actually saw the authentic Evelyn and also tried it on. It doesn’t have anything in common with this mess. It’s no wonder that Ukshopbagonline.co.uk has been shut down. It sells very poor quality replicas that do not have anything in common with the original bags.
