Watch: The Creation of a Designer Handbag

Herm's is iconic because of its craftmanship and this video of one of their Pochette bags being made drives home the point that the brand is at the top of its game.

For the expansion of their London shop on New Bond Street, three special editions of their clutch have been commissioned. The below video, from Vogue, goes through the steps that transform the leather sheets into an undeniable work of art.

The timeless Herm's clutch was first created in the 1930s, undergoing a revival in the 1970s. Fact of the day: Herm's was founded in 1837 and specialised in horse harnesses and bridles.
