Angela Simmons, daughter of Rev Run from Run DMC, was recently spotted carrying a hot red Hermes Constance Bag on her way in to the nail salon in LA. We saw Angela with this same bag at New York Fashion Week earlier this year – it’s always nice to see celebs getting some mileage out of their most covetable high-end bags.
Hermes Handbags and Purses
Just when you thought that the one-of-a-kind, graffiti-clad Hermes Kelly Bag was the pièce de résistance of the Moda Operandi bunk boutique, the retailer has added a late contender to the game: this (also one-of-a-kind, also graffiti-clad) Hermes Birkin Bag, customized just for Moda by artist Travis W. Simon. When you see the finished product (after the jump), you won’t believe that the bag started out as a standard black Birkin from Heritage Auctions.
There’s nothing like the adrenaline rush of an Hermes flash sale, and that’s exactly what we’ve got for you today. Our friends at Rue La La are hosting a fabulous selection of pre-owned Hermes handbags for your shopping pleasure, and we’ve got your exclusive preview of the sale, which starts today at 11 a.m. That’s ten minutes from now, which is just enough time to check out our bright, spring-centric picks from among the sale’s many treasures.
When it comes to the finest things in life, access is always an issue. Reservations at the best restaurants fill up weeks in advance, the best real estate flies off the market before a speck of dust can settle and the world’s best handbags are often sold out before they can even hit store shelves to be viewed by the public at large.
We know you get a lot of Hermes bags on PurseBlog, but typically we show you the coveted Birkin. Today, I want to show you the just as well-known Hermes Kelly in a version you may have never seen before: with outside zipper pockets. This is the Hermes Kelly Lakis, and it first hit stores in 2006. The Kelly was the ladylike predecessor to the Birkin, with a single top handle that gives this structured purse a very high-end feel.
Today’s post is a little different from our usual celeb features – the pic you see above is obviously an unnecessarily massive pile of Louis Vuitton luggage belonging to half of the Kardashian clan – Kris, Kourtney, Scott, Mason, baby Penelope, and their assorted handlers. After the jump, you’ll see pics of the whole gang fresh off a plane from NYC to London.
As much as people like to joke about her, Kim Kardashian ain’t no fool when it comes to fashion, and handbags in particular. Before she was famous for being famous, Kim was an LA stylist and boutique owner who frequently sold things from her own closet on eBay. Just because Kimmy’s now an internationally famous megastar who’s about to birth Kanye West’s child doesn’t mean that those wise resale instincts have gone by the wayside; Heritage Luxury Auctions’ upcoming Handbags and Luxury Accessories Signature Auction will include two bags from Kardashian’s ever-growing Hermes collection.
If you know anything about bags (and you probably do, otherwise you’d be looking at cat pictures on BuzzFeed like literally everyone else on the Internet), you know that Hermes is the holy grail. Sure, a woman’s personal grail bag might not be Hermes, but when it comes to the hierarchy of luxury handbags, no one beats Hermes at its own game.
It’s springtime in LA (when is it not, exactly?), and the Kardashians are busting out their bright spring hues and their most exotic Birkins! It’s been months since we featured a Birkin-wielding celeb on the blog, but we couldn’t resist this flagrant showcase of ridiculously rare and exclusive Hermes Birkins. Kim Kardashian is carrying an Hermes Grizzly Birkin, which has a suede body trimmed in leather, and is so rarely seen, I wasn’t even aware it existed before today.
