The SS Normandie was a luxurious transatlantic ocean liner that docked in New York City’s harbor in 1935. As a symbol of decadence the vessel welcomed its first class guest with a complimentary Hermes clutch (below) (before the ship was converted into troop ship.) I would have loved to see this ship first hand in all its beauty and go to dinner clutching that beautiful bag!! There is currently an exhibition titled, Decadence, at the South Street Seaport Museum in NYC. If you find yourself in the big apple check it out for me!
