Go Cargo: Hermès’Haut à Courroies Cargo Bag

Meet the Cargo Birkin’s older brother…

Seen on Hermès’ spring/summer 2021 show, the Haut à Courroies Cargo bag has really caught our attention. The new style is featured in canvas with different neutral colors and detailed with a luxurious leathered trim in black. It has multifunctional pockets on the outside part that is perfect for daily use, even if it’s simply to help you carry your coffee or a water bottle.

Interestingly, the Haut à Courroies design actually quite a long history. As described by the maison: “The Haut à courroies was Hermès’ firstborn, before the automobile and the taste for travel, at the beginning of the 20th century. Designed by Hermès to protect and transport saddles and riding boots, this ingenious and practical bag made life easier for riders and offered them an early expression of elegance. Its rigid flap folded flat against the rear of the bag creating a wide opening. The two saddle flaps were thus held in place by the straps, as if absorbed by the bag, like a sleight of hand.”
