Pink-Hermes-Birkin

“Investment” is a word that gets thrown around a lot when it comes to luxury fashion, but when it comes to actual, annual increases in value, Hermès Birkins are the gold standard. According to a data evaluation recently done by resale platform Baghunter, that might be even truer than bag lovers previously thought.

Hermes Crocodile Birkin with Diamonds

Last January, Hermès increased prices in the US market, so we’ve been on the lookout for information on a potential 2016 increase. As of right now, the intel we’re receiving from Hermès shoppers via their sales associates is there’s no increase coming for the US that anyone knows of.

[Editor’s Note: This post generated the most fascinating comments on PurseBlog in 2015 (and was still generating them as recently as Thanksgiving, five months after its original publication), and we wanted to give you guys a chance to catch up and chime in with your own stories while we finish up the holidays and spend a little bit more time with our loved ones.

Kendall-Jenner-Hermes-Birkin-25

Believe it or not, I get sick of looking at both Hermès Birkins and Kardashian-Jenners occasionally. Not because I dislike either of them–in fact, I quite like both, and I’m fascinated by both of their pop cultural significance–but simply because I spend a lot of time on the fashion Internet, which is a place both Birkins and Kardashians are somewhat ubiquitous.

Capretto Birkin Bar

Vlad and I were planning a trip to NYC this week, but after a freak accident last weekend (I tripped over uneven sidewalk while walking the dog and fractured my collarbone), we decided to stay in Florida while I get better.

I love a good bag collection, and the young Jenner sisters both have quite the extensive closet. I fell hard for Kylie Jenner’s Chanel Iridescent Boy Bag, and since the Kardashian-Jenners star in so many photos from the photo agency we work with, I’m constantly seeing what they’re carrying.

Van Dutch X Prive Porter Birkin Boat

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show was a couple weekends ago, and since Fort Lauderdale calls itself the “Yachting Capital of the World,” the best yachts lined the area’s many local waterways for the occasion. Vlad and I love the water, but I am not a huge boat lover; I get easily seasick and end up trying to find my way off the boat.

Gigi-Hadid-Hermes-Birkin-Bags

Model and Beautiful Rich Young Person Gigi Hadid walked in her very first Victoria’s Secret runway show last week, and the week before that, the video of her freaking out upon being offered a spot in her first VS runway show went viral, but this week, we’ve noticed another first for Ms.

Although sales are slowing in the long-booming Asian luxury market, it probably won’t surprise bag lovers to hear that Hermès continues to increase its sales and meet the expectations of industry-watching analysts. It also probably won’t surprise you to hear why; Bloomberg credits the brand’s strength with the Birkin’s perpetual scarcity.

10-Facts-about-Hermes-Birkin-History-and-Making

The Hermès Birkin is the most iconic and sought-after handbag in the world (even if you don’t like it, it’d be hard to argue otherwise), and that means most fashion lovers have already absorbed a lot of information about how it was conceived, how it’s made and how hard it is to get one.
