Christmas is right around the corner and tonight Vlad and I plan to bundle up on the couch, watch our favorite holiday movies, and drink hot cocoa. My Hermes Birkin is feeling festive as well and played dress up as Rudolph the red nosed Hermes.
Heiress Tamara Ecclestone recently paid a visit to Hermes Madison Avenue in NYC with her new husband Jay Rutland. She carried an Hermes So Black Alligator Birkin Bag just for the occasion. We actually saw Tamara in NYC with this super rare, exclusive Hermes bag around this exact same time last year.
Maria Shriver, her daughter Katherine Schwarzenegger and a PUPPY were recently spotted shopping at Cross Creek in LA. Maria was carrying a gorgeous, red Hermes Crocodile Birkin. From the lovely, slightly slouchy look of the leather, it appears as though she carries it regularly and has for some time.
You’ll never find weirder, more wonderful designer handbags than you will at a luxury handbag auction. Auction houses source their finds from high-spenders, some of whom are lifetime collectors that have earned special-order privileges with their favorite brands after years of purchasing the bags most of us can only dream about.
It’s been a big week for luxury theft in the news. First, a woman in England was found guilty of stealing nearly 1,000 designer handbags, one by one, over a period of three years. If that weren’t enough, yesterday came word that an entire Hermes collection had been stolen off the back of a truck in Milan, forcing the cancellation of an Hermes press preview that had been scheduled.
