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.
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.
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.
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.
