In the world of luxury fashion, Hermes stands out as an undisputed icon, and their crossbody bags are no exception. Crafted by hand using only the highest-quality leathers and hardware, these bags are designed to be your trusted everyday companions, no matter how busy or hectic your day is. And if you’re looking to add a crossbody bag from Hermes to your collection, you came to the right place. From the iconic Constance to the minimalist Geta, here are the 6 best Hermes crossbody bags to invest in.
1. Hermès Constance
Designed in 1959 by Catherine Chaillet, Hermès Constance is a true icon in the world of luxury handbags. Hence why the bag opens the list of the best Hermes crossbody bags. Featuring a classic square silhouette with the iconic H-shaped clasp, this crossbody bag comes available in two main sizes (18 and 24) and an array of materials, including luxurious Tadelakt leather, as well as exotic skins.
2. Hermès Evelyne
Introduced in the 1970s, the Hermes Evelyne was designed with the equestrian world in mind, reflected in the perforated “H” logo on the front of the bag. Featuring a convenient rear pocket and a sturdy canvas or leather body, this crossbody bag is perfect for those who prefer a more casual and versatile look. It also comes in an array of different sizes, making it suitable for a variety of occasions, from everyday use to travel.
3. Hermès Lindy
If you’re looking for a Hermes crossbody bag that’s both fashion-forward and practical, the Lindy is the way to go. Designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier in 2006 and introduced with the brand’s Spring/Summer collection in 2007, the Hermès Lindy is characterized by its unique double zipper and tubular handles. It can be carried as a top handle or worn as a crossbody thanks to its detachable strap. The Lindy also comes available in an array of different sizes, incl. the adorable Mini, which is very popular among H-lovers at the moment.
4. Hermès Jypsiere
Another Jean-Paul Gaultier creation, the Hermès Jypsiere crossbody bag combines the traditional Hermes aesthetic with a more contemporary and utilitarian feel. Released in the fall of 2008, the bag features multiple compartments, a flap closure, and an adjustable shoulder strap, which makes it work for any body type. The bag also arrives in an array of different sizes, from the affordable mini to the spacious Jypsiere 37.
5. Hermès Roulis
If you’ve read my article on the best quiet luxury bags, you already know about the Hermès Roulis. Released with the brand’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection, the Hermès Roulis features a sleek and elegant square silhouette, along with a minimalistic buckle at the front, which makes it a perfect choice for those who appreciate subtle branding. Carry yours either over the shoulder, or crossbody. The Roulis is also offered in two sizes, as well as a number of classic and seasonal colors to suit your needs and taste.
6. Hermès Geta
Often referred to as Constance’s younger sibling, the Hermès Geta offers a more contemporary take on a timeless crossbody bag. Introduced in 2021, the bag is inspired by traditional Japanese footwear, hence its shape of a supple box, accessorized by a modernized “H” logo and an adjustable shoulder strap. The Geta is currently available in one size only. But I am pretty sure Hermes is going to add more sizes soon, as the bag is exponentially growing in popularity.

P.S. My personal favorite is the Jypsiere.
