As well as being internationally admired for producing incredible handbags, the expert artisans at Hermes workshops also hand craft enviable accessories that add glamour to any formal, fashion or fun styles. Hermes belts are one of the most desired and cherished accessories in the world and feature on the wanted list of every luxury fashionista. What makes a Hermes belt an incredible investment is the quality of leather used in production.

Adding to this, each belt is made with opulent hardware crafted from precious metals, making a Hermes belt an essential component of any style icon’s repertoire.
While Hermes belts are a superb investment, it should not detract from another importantly detail: they look great. Multi-functional, they can help segment outlandish styles while also adding a fresh layer to plainer outfits. Many belts are reversible, so you can enjoy fine leather materials in two elegant shades. Hermes produces a wide variety of belts that can suit every occasion, for example a thin belt gives a layer of sophistication to formal dresses at evening events. In terms of buying your dream Hermes belt, it is also worth noting the Hermes belts are sized in centimetres and the standard measurement is from the buckle to the 2nd notch of the belt.

The iconic ‘H’ belt buckle illuminates proudly and is a true indicator of style, wealth and personality.

Another famed accessory of Hermes is the Collier de Chien belt. The ‘CDC’ was first created in 1927 and the popularity of the ‘dog collar’ belt later inspired the design of the Collier de Chien Bracelet. In typical ‘bulldog’ style, this belt features striking pyramid studs that are made from precious metals such as palladium or gold. This type of belt’s popularity is matched by its elusiveness.
