Hermes Birkin, 35cm, Clemence in Black

There was a hope that Megs’ Blue Jean Birkin was going to get a sibling during this NYC trip. I didn’t know she was going to turn out so beautifully photogenic. More info and pictures later this week.

    Who makes this bag??? Hermes?? I love it. Does anyone knows how much????

    • Yep, it’s Hermes. I’m not overly familiar with their pricing structure, but Birkins usually start in the $6,000-$7,000 range.

      • Allan

        Yeah, and this one is a 35 cm so it’s around $9000. :-)

  • lia

  • michelle

    The Birkin bags start at $8,200 and go up from there.

  • Handbag Lover

    I love it.

  • Anon

    Sorry the bag looks boring. It’s the wonderful swivel door (is that what it is??) in the background that makes the pic striking, though.

  • papertiger

    Classic and beautiful, I love it. My mother would say ‘wish you well to wear it’ so I’ll say that to you.

  • Lourdes

    Congrats and I am so jealous… Very classic … wear it well

  • Michelle

    There is no longer a waiting list. They are placed on the shelves and you can walk in and purchase one. Everytime I have gone into the Rodeo Drive store, they have had at least two on the shelves. You can also special order one.

    • JW

      Yeah. The birkins are more readily available. That has been the case for some time now. But some stores will still take down a customer’s info if they have a particular color they are interested in purchasing.

  • Anna Cooperberg

    Love for this bag is pretty much pouring out from my soul at this moment. And at least half of my love is for the itsy bitsy elephant. It is too adorbs!


  • Beth

    O. M. G. !!!

  • Lisa

    Fantastic picture and bag! I can’t wait to hear more about it and see more of Vlad’s great pictures!

  • Mommy needs a new bag

    It is absolutely stunning – congratulations on your newest addition!

  • Kat

    Lucky, lucky girl… what a beautiful bag!

    I think am finally ready for my first birkin but really want a JPG one. Does anyone know what a JPG Birkin retails for? Can I just walk into a store and buy it?

    • I am pretty sure I saw a creme-colored JPG Kelly at the Wall Street NYC store just a few days ago. May want to call them, if interested. I believe that the JPG Birkin is no longer in production, only for special order.

      • Kat

        Thanks Vlad. That helps! Do you have any idea of the price point on the JPG Kelly?

      • I am afraid I don’t know. I can inquire, though.

    if there´s a waiting list or not, I know nothing about that for sure, i got mine by chance, ´cause everytime i went to the Faubourg store in Paris, there was none, everyday i´ve tried and got the same response,
    so, once, in beautiful day, at night just right the pening time was out, I´ve came to one of the sellerwoman just the time I was leaving the sote, I´ve looked across the tables , next to the woman who makes the packages , and I saw one just like that, so, as was telling you, I came right to one aged japonese sellerwoman and asked her if that Birkin was seld to anyone, and she asked me if there was someone who was already occupied with me or not, I´ve said tehre wasn´t, and she hurried for someone to me, and eveything said that special Birkin was there just for a while before it would be taken to cave(smiling), and it was like that, simply but for sure, with decision, that one would be mine, or i´d die for it.
    Now, thanks God, i´m waiting for my second, in Lisbon, a special order, gray just slightly green, soft leather, with gold metals
    i´m just happy, more, becouse take my bag personnaly
    every purchase is a party, celebrated with champagne,]not for the bag itselv, i´ve got dozen of bags, but just to celebrate life , me, my family, the world, beauty,plasure, and so , and so, and so..
