Special Order – Anemone and Iris

I shared a little peek of this bag a few weeks ago – I opened it for my birthday, and then my son got a little sick, then I got sick, and it sat unused for several weeks. Such is the life of a parent, I’m discovering! I finally got to take it out for a spin, and here it is.

This bag was ordered a few years ago, one of the last times I was in Paris with Mr. Feather. We were at the boutique, and I was attempting to order another black bag, since I basically always think I need just one more black bag in my life. Mr. Feather snapped out of his boredom long enough however to insist that I try a new color, so we picked Anemone, which had just come out at the time. I was really excited because there were a lot of Anemone goodies that I could see in the shop, and thought it was a beautiful color. I couldn’t wait to get it!

Of course, the order ended up taking longer than I thought…and came in basically at the worst time, soon after baby Feather’s arrival, and I was in no mood or condition to have plans to be in Paris in the short term. The news that the bag had arrived honestly barely even registered, since I was sleep deprived and so uncomfortable. I ended up kind of writing off the bag as a loss, along with other important things like sleep! I basically never expected to see it again.

Somehow however, my husband however was able to get the bag held until he was back in Paris (an amazing superhuman feat for anyone familiar with the process), and he sweetly saved it as a surprise until my birthday came. It was a wonderful surprise to see this bag, especially since it had been so long so it was first ordered. I loved it at first sight!

Anemone Kelly

I love the color anemone in every leather that Hermes offers, but especially in chevre – it has slightly more red/magenta tones in this leather. Anemone is lovely in every iteration, but looks different leather to leather I’ve found. Continue Reading
