Three of my favorite things have come together to create the ultimate triple-match made in heaven. Our friends at Moda Operandi and Heritage Auctions worked together to source an amazing array of vintage Hermes items. Since we covered a large gallery of celebrities and their Hermes Birkins earlier today, so it’s fitting to follow up on how you can buy the Hermes items of your dreams, as we all know it’s typically a feat.
Hermes Handbags and Purses(Page 8)
There are certain bags that celebrities, no matter who they are, just love to carry. We already showed you an amazing round up of celebrities and their Celine Luggage Totes, and today we are breaking down the celebs that love, covet, and carry Hermes Birkins. The Hermes Birkin is not only the ultimate timeless classic, but it’s also the bag that celebrities have to wait to get just like the rest of us.
In all the hustle and bustle of getting through the end of the fashion season, we’ve still got a few collections that we didn’t get a chance to write about but we think you should see. The first, of course, is Hermes Spring 2013 – Hermes is essential viewing to any handbag lover, even if it’s not your style or anywhere near your budget.
I love crocodile in light colors. Especially when it comes to Hermes bags, black or other dark neutrals seem to be what most people tend to buy when they buy croc, and I can understand that compulsion; crocodile is enormously expensive, particularly from a brand like Hermes, and versatility is important when making that kind of investment. So are concerns about wear and tear, and dark colors tend to mask use a bit better.
Get excited, everyone: we have lots of vintage and pre-owned Hermes loveliness to show you to speed up the end of you work week. Our friends at Rue La La are having another one of their highly anticipated From the Reserve sales starting tomorrow morning at 11 a.m., and it is chock full of all the Hermes goodies that you could ever dream of.
I’m not sure when it was that I became truly aware of the world of luxury but when I did, I learned very quickly that luxury products felt better, lasted longer and true luxury is inherent to the craft of the product. It wasn’t long before I happened upon the ultimate symbol of luxury craftsmanship – Hermes.
I know many PurseBlog readers are intimately familiar with the brand and many of you lucky ladies are the proud owners of a Birkin or Kelly bag.
Ladies and gents, the time has come: we have ourselves a winner. As many of you know, we partnered with our fabulous friends at PopSugar, Moda Operandi and Shop Style to give all you handbag fanatics the opportunity to win a vintage 35cm Navy Hermes Birkin. The entries poured in, the giveaway came to a close and a winner was randomly selected and contacted.
When Moda Operandi and Heritage Auctions team up to bring Heritage’s catalog of amazing pre-owned and vintage Hermes bags to online luxury shoppers everywhere, my heart always skips a beat. You never know what kind of rare gems are going to be contained within the sale, but there’s always something (and usually a lot of somethings) incredibly rare and totally gorgeous to covet.
Let’s cut right to the chase here: Hermes bags are fun to look at, even if you can’t afford one. If you can afford one, particularly one like the Hermes Blue Roi Crocodile Birkin up top, they’re even more fun to look at. Thus, to help you speed through your Friday morning and straight into the weekend, we bring you a gallery of the bags up for grabs in Moda Operandi’s latest vintage Hermes sale in conjunction with Heritage Auctions.
First released in 1975, it’s been decades since the Hermes Passe-Guide Bag graced the shelves of an Hermes retail store, but the heavily hardwared bag made a comeback for Spring 2012 and will be produced again for fall. In very limited quantities, that is; the design starts at $11,700 for regular leather, and good luck finding one to purchase. What, you thought that Hermes would launch a new bag by making it widely available to all interested parties?
