Showing a more true to the colour – than my last post – of Brique which is quite difficult to identify due to confusion with a similar colour. There’s an added complication of different types of leathers altering the colour again but this is the case for many Hermès colours. Also certain ‘classic’ colours such as a burgundy red, has a slightly different tone depending on when it was produced. As with the sellier style, when I first saw this colour, I did not like it. It took a while for me to understand that everyone has a red that is uniquely theirs. Brique is my red! I’ll wear it with greys, navy, cream, beige, tan and khaki – oh especially greens and blue denim 🙂 I like to wear all my bags casually everyday. However, there is one very special occasion that I’m planning for this one in the near future.I’m sure a vintage brique would be different but feel so incredibly lucky to find this one. Maybe the reason why I didn’t like the colour at first was because the hardware was gold, I’m not sure but it was in the early days when I had precious little idea of the importance of details and balance. I couldn’t resist a close up against my thrifted vintage embroidered pillow case.They seem to be exactly the same colour but irl, the Plume is a little lighter due to the nature of the chêvre leather it’s made of. Oh, maybe they can be my travel set 🙂
