It seems like every season, more and more exotics are available, many of them at the extreme end of the price continuum. For Fall 2015, two of our favorite bags are going to be available in very similar shades of blue alligator: the Givenchy Antigona Bag and Fendi Petite 3Jours Tote.
It’s an interesting time to be in the ultra-luxury business because no one really knows where the top of the market is. In a climate when a pre-owned Birkin can break records by selling at auction for well into the six figures, there’s a seemingly insatiable thirst for novelty and rarity among the world’s super rich.
Exotic bags might not be in everyone’s bag budgets, but they sure are fun to look at, especially in the bright, saturated colors that come along with spring collections. That’s why this week’s edition of Want It Wednesday centers all around them–go ahead, we don’t blame you if you get a little bit distracted.
Every now and then, our friends at Moda Operandi and Heritage Auctions get together to make some rare, pre-owned Hermès bags and accessories available at a few clicks of a mouse, and now is one of those times.
“What do you get the girl who has everything?” is an eye-rollingly cliché question, but if it’s one for which you need a serious answer this holiday season (which is hurtling straight at us), then you should probably refer to the recently launched Moda Operandi Holiday Collection.
Heritage Auctions already holds the record for selling the most expensive handbag of all time, a diamond-encrusted Birkin that sold for more than $200,000 in 2011. With the house’s upcoming Luxury Accessories Signature Auction, it may well break its own record with an ultra-rare, incredibly covetable Hermès Himalayan Crocodile Birkin, finished with diamond-encrusted hardware.
