Khloe-Kardashian-Hermes-Birkins

It’s only right that a matriarch of a family would have the best collection of Birkins, and Kris Jenner is definitely ahead of her daughters in the Hermès-acquisition column. You might expect Kim to be the heir to that particular handbag throne (and, to her credit, she has some beautiful rarities), but when it comes to Birkins, Khloé Kardashian might really be the sister next in line.

Christies-Handbag-and-Accessory-June-Online-Auction

Christie’s is one of the world’s most storied auction houses, and with its sales comes the promise of a curated selection of the highest order. At the Christie’s Handbags & Accessories June Online Auction, which begins today, you’ll find exactly that, including bags and accessories from brands like Hermès, Chanel and Louis Vuitton.

Celebrity-Designer-Bag-June-6

When you look at celebrity snapshots as often as I do, you sometimes get the impression that you’re doing something wrong. You could be brunching better. You could experiment a lot more with your fashion choices.

Hermes-Birkin-Record-Sale-Price

If it seems like it was very recently that we brought you news of a brand new world record Hermès Birkin sale, that’s because it was. In April, Privé Porter sold a Birkin in braise red crocodile for $298,000 to a collector in California, but now, according to CNN, that figure has been eclipsed by a Birkin sold by Christie’s in Hong Kong for just over $300,000.

Hermes-Bags-Moda-Operandi-Sale

If you’ve been contemplating a handbag purchase that rivals the price of a ranch home in many parts of suburban America, then we have some timely news to share with you: Heritage Auctions has once again teamed up with Moda Operandi to offer a curated selection of rare, pre-owned Hermès handbags for sale, and this time around, one of them is a Himalayan crocodile Birkin.

Kris-Jenner-Hermes-Handbag-Worth

Celebrity bag collections are almost addictive to look at. The mixture of private wealth and paparazzi interest makes for incredible bag-spotting, and it’s easy to get carried away in imaging what it would be like to march into any designer boutique and pick whatever you wanted to take home.

Padma-Lakshmi-Hermes-Birkin

You don’t have to watch many episodes of Top Chef to notice that Padma Lakshmi is extremely polished. That might be an understatement: she’s almost imposingly polished. When you stack that on top of being beautiful and very smart, it’s not surprising that even the paparazzi rarely catch her looking at all ruffled.

Most-Expensive-Hermes-Birkin-Ever

It was just last June that we reported to you about a new high in handbag resale prices: Christie’s Hong Kong had just sold a pink crocodile Hermès Birkin for a record high of $221,000. That record didn’t even make its first anniversary; earlier this week, Privé Porter announced it had broken that record with a $298,000 Birkin of its own, and it’s one that will look familiar to PurseBlog readers.

Portero Designer Bags

My love for handbags started at a young age, and it began with lusting, not owning. I used to go to the mall with my friends in junior high, and while they were in Limited Too, I was in department stores, looking at bags.

Hermes-Petit-H-Surprise-Box

If I told you that Hermès is offering an $11,500 one-of-a-kind piece that even hardcore Birkin addicts are having trouble justifying, would you believe me? $11,500 is barely more expensive than a baseline leather Birkin, after all–it’s a number that frequent Hermès shoppers wouldn’t be shocked by.

5 Tips on how to buy a real Birkin

Waiting list or not, it can still be super tricky to get the Hermès Birkin of your dreams. If you walk into an Hermès store, anyone can buy anything off the shelf, but you will rarely find a Birkin or a Kelly waiting for you.

Moda-Operandi-Heritage-Auctions-Hermes-Bags

If you’re looking to kick off your Spring 2016 wardrobe in one of the most luxurious (and expensive) ways possible, Moda Operandi is here to help. That’s true both in general and in this particular instance, of course: the site has collaborated with Heritage Auctions on an edit of rare, colorful, often exotic Hermès bags that can be in your hot little hands come March.
