The History of the Evelyne Bags
The equestrian heritage of the Hermès brand inspired the creation of the stunning Evelyne bag. The bag was designed by Evelyne Bertrand in the Hermès equestrian department and used for decades to carry horse grooming equipment.
The curved, messenger bag-like silhouette, shoulder strap, and easy access closure were all ideal for carrying grooming accessories, while the perforated H on the bag was designed to aerate the equipment – so clever. The bag was named after Evelyne Bertrand when it was launched in 1978 and remained in the equestrian leather goods department for decades.
It wasn’t until the 2000s that Hermès realized this chic bag may be popular as an everyday handbag for luxury-loving fashionistas, and so they moved it to their famous bag collection. Decades after it was first designed, the Evelyne is just as stylish and perfectly practical too!
Editions, Sizes, and materials of the Evelyne bags
Since this shoulder bag was first launched in the 1970s, there have been four different editions of the Hermès handbag: the Evelyne I, Evelyne II, Evelyne III, and Evelyne Sellier. The most recent is the Evelyne III, which is the style you will find in Hermès boutiques today. With this said, you may be able to find some vintage editions of the previous versions on resale sites.
Each edition of the Evelyne bag includes different features; for example, the Evelyne II was the first to include an exterior pocket. The Evelyne III is now fitted with this external pocket and an adjustable shoulder strap.
The Evelyne Sellier is a little more uncommon since it was only released in 2016, and is distinguishable because of the diamond-shaped H logo on the front, rather than the traditional oval.
There are also different sizes of the Evelyne bag available; the TPM, PM, GM, and TGM. The TPM and PM are the most popular size since they are the ideal sizes for everyday use and are beloved by customers. It really depends on what you plan on using this handbag for as to which size is right for you, so here are the exact measurements to help you work out the right size:
- Hermès Evelyne 16 Amazone (TPM) – 16cm x 18cm OR 6.3” x 7.1”
- Hermès Evelyne 29 (PM) – 29cm x 30cm OR 11.4” x 11.8”
- Hermès Evelyne 33 (GM) – 33cm x 31cm OR 13” x 12.2”
- Hermès Evelyne 40 (TGM) – 40cm x 44cm OR 15.7” x 17.3”
In Hermès boutiques, you will find Evelyne bags made from a few different materials, available for different prices. Most commonly, the Hermès Evelyne bags are made from Taurillon Clemence leather. This has a matte finish, with a flat grain texture that makes it pretty durable. However, it is one of the heavier leathers and therefore it can slouch over time.
Evelyne handbags are also made from Epsom leather, which features a printed grain and is rigid meaning the bag will hold its shape, Togo leather, which has a raised grain but smooth feel and durable finish, and Swift leather, with a smooth feel and more delicate finish.
Hermès Evelyne bags are available in a wide range of colors, from neutral tones to bright shades, so you can pick the option that best suits your look. Generally, the shoulder strap will perfectly match the color of the leather, creating a sleek and sophisticated tonal design. Although, some editions of the Evelyne TPM feature striking pattern shoulder straps that add a quirky touch to this classic bag.
You will often see the Evelyne shoulder bag in a gold shade, which is one of the most popular Hermès colors and is available in many of their handbags. This light brown shade is gorgeous and a super versatile option. There are of course plenty of other neutral shades to choose from, including black, ivory, and dark brown.
However, we particularly love the bright shades that Hermès have on offer, this ranges from vibrant pinks, like Rose Tyrien and Rose Extreme, to beautiful blues, including Blue Hydra and Blue Atoll as well as oranges, yellows, and greens.

Since Taurillon Clemence leather is the most common and most popular, material for an Evelyne bag, these prices are readily available.
Other leathers, like Swift, Epsom, Togo, and Courchevel are much rarer, and therefore the prices are often not released – you will have to ask your sales associate. Epsom and Togo leather are likely to be similarly priced to the Taurillon Clemence options, while Swift and Courchevel leather will be more expensive.
