About the Hermes Evelyne Bag
The Hermes Evelyne is a versatile bag that was named after Hermes saddle maker Evelyne Bertrand, who originally created the bag to carry all her horse grooming products. The Evelyne bag is known for it’s high quality leather, it’s signature perforated “H” pattern on the front, snap buckle closure, its spacious interior and long adjustable strap. Since the Hermes Evelyne has been initially released in 1978 there have been four versions of the bag created. These versions are the Evelyne I, Evelyne II, Evelyne III, and Evelyne Sellier.
The Hermes Evelyne Mini Size (Hermes Evelyne 16)
The smallest size is the Hermes Evelyne Mini size which is also known as the TPM which means Très Petit Modèle and Evelyne Size 16. I recently purchased this bag due to its size and how easy it to style and wear. This bag can easily be worn as a crossbody or shoulder bag. If you are looking for a mini bag that can only fit your essentials, such as a cardholder, keys, and your phone, then the Hermes Evelyne Mini size is perfect for you! Shop Hermes Evelyne Mini

The Hermes Evelyne 29 PM Size
The Hermes Evelyne 29 PM size is often referred to as the small Evelyne bag. This is the perfect bag for someone who is wanting a small bag, but bigger than a mini size. I adore this size Evelyne bag because it still small enough where it can still be worn both to casual outings or a night out!

Due to the size of this bag it’s common that the Hermes Evelyne size 33 GM often lose their structure which is why this is the perfect causal day out page.

The Hermes Evelyne 40 TGM Size
The Largest Hermes Evelyne size is the Hermes Evelyne TGM size. This bag is perfect for someone who is looking for an extremely large bag that can carry tons and tons of items.
