The Hermès Jypsière was created as a casual version of the Kelly. While the Kelly is very beautiful it is not the most versatile bag because of its structured and formal look, but the Jypsière combines what we love about the Kelly with ease and comfort into one lovely everyday, unisex messenger bag. It features the same gusseted sides and turnlock straps like the Birkin and Kelly, but the rounded bottom corners and the thicker, buckled strap lends itself a more carefree vibe.

I like this purse in the smallest size in bright colors like Orange and Casaque Red. Although you can never go wrong with taupe! This isn’t one of my most preferred Hermès silouhettes, but many people love it.
The lady or gentleman who wears this bag shows that they don’t have to sacrifice elegance for everyday comfort and practicality. If you like the hardware and general shape of the Kelly but want to sport a younger, carefree look, I think you’d like the Jypsière. The straps can be doubled up to turn it into a shoulder bag, and the strap is removable altogether, in case you choose to make it a clutch-type purse.
