Here’s former Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel, literally picking her daughter Bryn up from school in Tribeca. Bethenny is carrying a black Hermes Birkin, one of the many, many Birkins she has in her handbag collection. It’s somewhat surprising when we see Bethenny carrying anything else.

Here’s Kourtney Kardashian, preparing to get on a flight to Paris at LAX with her kiddos Mason and Penelope. (Or maybe it was a flight to Florence? Frankly, we’ve all been down the “Kim Kardashian’s wedding” rabbit hole before, and it’s hard to care.) Kourtney is carrying a black Hermes Birkin, natch.
Any young fame-seeker worth his Twitter followers knows that if something works once, it’ll probably work again. With that in mind, erstwhile Birkin (“Birkin”) destroyer and photographer Tyler Shields is back and making more waves with his lofty, arty thoughts on consumerism via more photos of an Hermes (maybe) handbag in a compromising position.
Here’s Kim Kardashian, navigating her way through LAX amid an enormous mob of paparazzi, carrying her extremely rare Hermes So Black Birkin, and we’ve seen her carrying this coveted Birkin before. Kim is quite the collector of exotic Birkins, in fact, it could easily be argued that she’s one of the most prolific Birkin collectors, because she has both the wealth and the high profile necessary to gain access to the really good stuff.
Here’s actress Naya Rivera carrying an Hermes Kelly Bag during a recent coffee run in LA. We saw Naya pair this same Kelly with a drastically different outfit during New York Fashion Week back in February. The Kelly is generally considered a more ladylike bag, but the brand’s popularity among the young and rich has resulted in some less traditional styling, like you see here.
The stars of the upcoming revenge comedy The Other Woman have been jet-setting all over the world these past two weeks to promote their new flick, but actress Leslie Mann has been consistently “bag-blocked” by the large, luxurious bag choices of Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton, who always seem to be leading the pack.
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.
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.
