This post is dedicated to fellow travellers and Hermes aficionados …
The Hermès journey may be long, but when it comes to service and quality, there are no shortcuts.
I have to confess that I really love it, when the sales associates and store managers welcome me by name, at any of beloved Hermes boutiques.
Proper conversation is appreciated (especially now with social opportunities, so limited) and of course, actual help with whatever crazy request one may have. Homeware? A blanket or perhaps some cushions? Menswear, a present for my father? They also offer me good advice, peppered with pertinent suggestions for new treasures.
I never feel pushed into purchasing anything, but often regret it when I don’t. Is that FOMO?
Anyway funds are fairly limited, so one has a to exercise some form of self restraint.
Irrespective of how much or how little I buy, always feel welcome as a person and valued as a customer.
Even so, I was pleasantly surprised to be offered the chance to order bespoke. (Or oh la- la carte – as we like to say)
It’s a tough one because, I ve reached a decision to only buy the things I need,
rather than everything I want.
only buy the things I need, rather than everything I want.
At this point going abroad on some sort of real holiday, is top of my list ( though highly unlikely) and there only so many Kelly bags a girl can use.
If you are starting out on your personal Hermès journey, stay cool and reserved about ‘the bag’. Desperation is never attractive. Some will suggest hijacking the process, going the reseller route, but I am not so sure. Unless, of course, you are looking for vintage, a whole different ballgame. 1990’s box Kelly’s are in a league of their own.
bon voyage fellow travellers and share your stories!
