Hermes Apple Holder makes Fashion Police lives complete

Hermes_apple_holder

We’ll be honest: we kind of thought the Hermes Apple Holder might be an April Fools when we first read about it, on April 1st.  It just seemed so improbable that people would hand over hundreds of dollars (We assume) for something designed to hold a single apple, but then, look at Crocs – it seems totally improbable that people would hand over any money at all to wear those things, and yet people do, so far be it for us to say what is and is not "probable" in the world of fashion.

The apple holder is still there on the Hermes website today, though, and now that we look at it through fresh eyes, we find ourselves wondering how on earth we ever lived without it. How did we transport apples before this little cutie came along? And how will we now get through our lives knowing that it’s out there, but we probably can’t afford it?

The existence of the Hermes Apple Holder also allows us to ask you this question: So, how’d you like them apples?

    Awwww I think it’s totally cute. Pointless maybe, but still very very adorable!

    What if I buy several apples? Do I have to buy several apple holders? Maybe match the holder to the colour of the apple inside…or use complementarity of colours. 😛

    It’s actually even more complicated than that, Raluca, because you’ll also have to be very careful to make sure that every apple you buy is exactly the right size to fit in the holder 🙂

    the design is very pretty, you must admit. i just don’t see that anyone would want to own such a pointless thing.

    This is so cute, and useful… I actually have a banana holder which lets me carry one around without it getting all banged up in my bag. Then again, I think I probably paid less that $3 for it.
