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.
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.
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.
“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.
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.
