WHY DOES EVERY WOMAN WANT A HERMÈS PICOTIN?
Undeniably one of the world’s leading luxury brands, Hermès may seem somewhat unreachable to many people. Its name represents the highest standards and exquisite craftsmanship, which is why Hermès bags are highly coveted by women around the world. If Birkin and Kelly seem a little out of your league, Picotin is sure to win your heart, for it is much more affordable and just as alluring.
SIMPLISTIC, ELEGANT AND CHARMING
You may not be instantly blown away by Picotin at first sight, but you’re sure to fall in love with it at second sight. Picotin’s sturdy design takes inspiration from horse feeding buckets, and its neat and simplistic style serves to highlight the outstanding quality of the leather. Just like Birkin and Kelly, Hermès’ iconic lock adds the perfect embellishment to the bag. Being the most minimalist in Hermès’ bag collection, this much sought-after bucket bag is extremely versatile and can be paired with almost any type and style of clothing to create an elegant look.
USUAL SIZES AND MATERIALS
The three most popular sizes of Picotin are 18cm, 22cm, and 26cm, with most women going for 18cm or 22cm. Whether it is the adorable 18cm, the practical 22cm, or the flexible 26cm that can be carried by hand or on the shoulder, you’re sure to find one that suits your style and liking. Picotin comes in various colors, with black, etoupe, and orange being the most popular. Its materials include the usual calfskin, rare leathers such as ostrich, lizard and crocodile skins, and even canvas.
CLASSY BUT AFFORDABLE
First introduced in 2002, Picotin remains just as popular today as two decades ago. Its current price has risen a little but is still much less pricey compared with other Hermès bags.
