Hermes Crocodile Birkin Braise

In case you ever doubted the seemingly bottomless demand for Hermès Birkins, Neiman Marcus’ decision to sell the bags pre-owned on its website and the available bags’ quick disappearance from the site should tell you all you need to know. Even at a sometimes steep markup, the bags, which debuted on the site earlier this week, have already more than half sold out.

Givenchy Fish Skin Antigona Bag

Black Givenchy Antigona Bags aren’t exactly a tough sell; not only has the brand been moving them briskly for seasons, but the ultra-expensive exotic versions sell out before they even hit the sales floor. It’s the kind of bag every designer dreams of creating, because it more or less enables a company to print money for a couple of years.
