This is a trunkshow that needs little introduction. We’re huge fans of both Moda Operandi and Heritage Auctions, and when they team up, they give online customers unprecedented access to the rarest, most luxurious bags in the world. From now until April 28, you can shop a lust-worthy selection of vintage and pre-owned Hermes bags in both exotics and standard leathers, plus a few leather accessories and silk scarves.

Intellectually, we all know that the world of Hermes (and, by extension, the world of Hermes customers) is not like ours. It’s easy to forget that, though, until something like the Hermes Plein Cuir Alligator Desk Set comes along, providing countless hours of workday luxury for a mere $91,600. If you have less desk space than the ability to purchase nearly $100,000 in Hermes exotics to adorn your office might imply, fret not – all of the pieces can be purchased individually, including a pencil cup that costs nearly $6,000.

When you hear the name Hermes, you probably think of the famed Birkin and Kelly bags. There are many other bags the leather house creates beyond those two icons, and most are fairly recognizable. Sometimes a true rarity pops up, though, and this time I ran into a bag I’ve never seen at Heritage Auctions.

Behold, the Hermes Shiny Vert Emerald Alligator, Rouge Vif Ostrich, Violet Veau Doblis Suede & Black Calf Box Leather Sac Himalaya Bag.

With the chill in the air beginning to dissipate ever so slightly, it’s time to turn to spring for dressing cues. With the new season comes a new color palette, one both altogether lighter and brighter than we’ve been using for the previous six months, and that surely leaves some wardrobe gaps to fill. If you’re looking to fill them with some of the most covetable and difficult-to-find high-end handbags and accessories on the planet, the online-only Christie’s Luxury Handbags & Accessories Auction has arrived at just the right time.

Kimora Lee Simmons was recently spotted arriving at LAX with an Hermes Birkin, which seems like a natural choice for her. We just saw Kimora Lee traveling with a Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag and her investment banker boyfriend Tim Leissner last month, mere DAYS before it was revealed (by her ex, Russell Simmons, no less) that the couple had secretly wed some time ago.

Lindsay Lohan took a minute to pose for paps and fans outside her Soho apartment last week. On her arm is a eye-catching, bright orange Hermes Soft Kelly. Lindsay’s new reality show on Oprah’s OWN network just premiered this past Sunday, and it’s put Lindsay back in the public eye again after a lengthy (Oprah-enforced) absence. While her lifestyle habits have hopefully changed for the better, some things always stay the same: her taste in handbags remains as high-end as ever.

If there’s one thing we’ll never get sick of seeing on Instagram, it’s great handbags. (Okay, food and puppies are on that list too.) While it’s no secret that we’re huge lovers of all things Hermès in the PurseBlog offices, we’re most definitely not alone. We combed through layers of hashtags and pictures to find some serious drool-worthy Hermès bags and bracelets on Instagram that will most likely keep you salivating for hours to come.

Here’s Dorothy Wang, one of the stars of E! reality show Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, headed into Dan Tana’s restaurant in LA, carrying a bubblegum pink Hermes Kelly Bag and a shopping bag from Barneys. I’ve never seen the show, but my editor Amanda tells me that it’s a great hate-watch, and that Dorothy is really funny. (After checking out these fan-made memes on E!’s website, I tend to agree.) If you pay attention to our TV recap content, you’ll know that we’re all huge fans of hate-watching reality TV shows.

Here’s Glee star Naya Rivera out in Soho with a sleek, black Hermes Kelly Bag. I repeat, that’s Naya Rivera, not Kim Kardashian, but the resemblance here is startling. If you told me she and Kim K shared a colorist and a makeup artist, I’d absolutely believe you. Naya is in town for fashion week, natch, and she attended the Michael Kors show on Wednesday.

Former Pussycat Doll and current X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger was recently spotted at the arrivals gate at LAX with a sleek, taupe Hermes Jypsiere Bag in tow. The Jypsiere is one of the newest models in Hermes’ stable of non-seasonal classics. While its front closure is similar to that of a Birkin, functionally, it’s more like a messenger bag. It seems to be Hermes’ attempt to both maximize the utility of their bags, and perhaps attract a younger customer.
