  • bleah!

  • Design building names, labels, unnecessary unaffordable luxury.
    che fare.
    Ignoring all that this could also be seen as a fair wack at evolving hermes baggage. Difficult to do much with all the historical baggage that goes with the label.
    Could have been squarer, more like an Apple aluminium/leather laptop?

  • Nice retro’ish design, but the wheels won’t last long at the airport !
