A Guide to Hermes Blues

Hermes colors are iconic.

 

If you’ve been keeping up with our shopping guides, you know that Hermes’ extensive range of colors for their bags is anything but ordinary. Hermes pinks, beiges, blues you name it. But they’re not as readily available like other colors such as blacks and browns, for instance; think Noir, Gold, or Etoupe. Despite all the colors Hermes offers, it’s not easy to find any one particular shade. The reason being, every season is different depending on what is ordered and what is being produced at the time. 

This post dives into the full blue spectrum of Hermes. Everything from the darkest midnight blue to the palest sky gray. Hermes colors may be hard to track down if you have your eye on a particular shade. But with our ever-evolving selection of pre-loved Hermes, FASHIONPHILE is the perfect destination for uncovering exactly what you’re looking for …. without the wait.
