The Hermes Constance 18 is a very compact and easy to wear bag. I prefer wearing it crossbody, but the bag can also be used on the crook of the arm or over the shoulder.
The Hermes Constance is a classic and very coveted bag; it is often harder to find than a Birkin or Kelly. Like the Birkin and Kelly, the Constance remains in fashion regardless of changes in fashion and is very popular with Hermès handbag devotees.
The original Constance came in 23cm size, with the 18cm (mini) coming soon afterward. Constances have been produced in a variety of sizes over the years but the most common sizes are the Micro (14cm), Mini (18cm), 24cm (which used to be the traditional 23cm), Elan, which is a long rectangular version of the bag introduced in 2010, and Cartable, a 29cm version with a shorter strap and enamel H that was introduced in 2013. Constances come in classic colors, as well as seasonal colors, and in a variety of leathers and skins.
