This exceptional and unique handbag has been created in honor of the Esencia del Cuero exhibition which opens in Madrid on 24 September 2013. This isn’t the first collaboration between Hermès and Christie’s. Last year they worked together when four one-of-a-kind versions of the ‘Passe-Guide’ handbag representing England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales were created for the Leather Forever exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, selling for more than three times the pre-sale estimate.

The handbag was chosen for this project as a celebration of the equestrian world. Originally created by Henri d’Origny in 1975, the ‘Passe-Guide’ remains one of the most sought-after handbags. This ‘Passe-Guide’ bag is made of black box calfskin with a front flap embroidered with black beads and sequins on silk satin. It features the motif of the carré ‘En desordre’ and evokes the work of great Spanish painters and toreador’s embroidered clothes.
