This is not the first time Victoria Beckham has tempted me with her gorgeous Hermes Crocodile Birkin. In fact, this seems to be one of Victoria’s favorite Hermes bags from her collection (rumored to be in the hundreds of bags).

Let’s talk about why this bag works. First off, it is a timeless classic, the Hermes Birkin. Not everyone loves this bag or understands the cult-like status it has garnered, but it is hard to find this particular version anything short of fabulous. Hermes uses premium exotic skins, and their crocodile skins provide an additional level of beauty. The color is what has me in love with this bag the most. You see, it is the most stunning hue of red. A shade that is not shockingly in your face but not dull or bland. Without being overly cliche, the color is perfect. Because of its deep saturation, it can work for nearly every outfit imaginable. And what I love to see is Victoria wearing a top and jeans from her collection with this gorgeous handbag.

Because of everything listed above, Victoria Beckham is carrying my bag for this week’s Want it Wednesday.

  • BLynnT

    Her Birkin collection is beyond words. And the classic bag fits in seamlessly with her style. I love how she mixes seasonal pieces with such a chic and timeless bag. And I agree, Megs, the red is wonderful and looks especially good against her neutral black and gray outfit. (fb)

    • Gisele

      yes, shoot me too please, I am not crazy about’s a beautiful bag, but let them have it.

  • Leona

    Beautiful! The color *is* perfect. (fb)

  • Karin bag4bag

    I have never been a great fan of Birkins BUT this bag…OMG Superb..Fabulous color and texture.(fb)

  • Lianne

    I love that colour. That’s the sort of red I would carry in a heatbeat. (fb)

  • Deana Rooks

    Red is always a classy color and can match just about anything. I just got a red coach and love it! It instantly dresses up anything I am wearing. (FB)

  • Ruth

    The red reminds me of Rebecca Minkoff’s ‘wine’. A deep and neutral red that is a wardrobe staple. A Birkin is so beyond the realm of possibility in my life that I don’t think I allow my brain to ‘go there’. But I agree that the colour is wonderful.

    • Ruth


  • Sher77

    Beautiful color.

  • liv

    wow, this is amazing, I’d love it since she flow around the first time.

  • Monique

    wtheck? (fb)

  • Sofia Nolan

    I hate snake leather, but I adore this crocodile Birkin … love it

  • Alanna

    love the colour but hideous texture (fb)

  • shaintell

    I’m not a birkin or Hermes fan either. I understand that the company uses superb quality leather and skins but their styles are so boring. The birkin is just a tote and they all look the same. The bags are just status symbols. Why else would someone own hundreds.

  • Pamela

    I never liked birkens but this bag, if I saw it on the street, I’d do a double take and stare it down till I figured out the brand of that bag. There’s something about crocidile skin that I love so much and want so badly…and I can imagine on a birkens, it’d last me forever. I wonder how much this costs anyways? I’m sure the price alone would make me freak. (fb)

  • hect

    i love it waiting on this bag 18 months but worth it !!!!

  • Savvy

    You will look at it and then look back. That’s how elegant and classy the bag is. How i wish Ms. Beckham would gift me one of his old Hermes. ha..ha..ha..wish upon star (fb)

  • karolynka

    loveee vb and her birkins :)

  • covertanjou

    Love, love, love this bag. (fb)

  • Ping

    The picture of the bag fails to do proper justice to its truly breathtaking color. The bourdeaux is a deep black/wine red and it’s my top prized bag in my closet:) I gifted this bag to myself when I turned 40 this past winter, rather than throwing a party:) I normally prefer a Kelly over a Birkin, but this croc Birkin has ruined me for all other bags. I agree with one of the comments that one probably does not need hundreds of Hermes Birkins, but this one is beyond gorgeous. This is probably why VB carries this Birkin quite often b/c every time I take it out of the box, it still takes my breath away.

    • cge

      Lucky you! It must give you great pleasure! Where did you buy it?

  • MizzJ


    I can see why some think Hermes are boring, but they aren’t trying to be trendy or flashy. If you want something like that, get a Marc Jacobs. Hermes is all about timelessness, class, and old-school luxury. If you know anything about bags, then you know that Hermes is the king of classic.

  • Vicki Page-Clark

    I love birkins anyway, but the skin and the colour…, the colour, it does just take your breath away does it? ***stunning*** (fb)

  • karelia

    Omg! Love it!!! (fb)

  • Claire

    I think that is the nicest Birkin I’ve ever seen.

  • Nikki

    I want it! Who doesn’t? (fb)

  • jenny

    Victoria always thinking that she is a rock star or something

  • Jocelyn

    That is so delicious. Someday I’ll own one :p (fb)

  • qiaoling

    Nice! however, I love kelly bag more than birkin….im thinking of buying a kelly bag but i have to wait at least 6 months and not only that, i have to purchase other things besides the hermes bags so they will let me be on the wait lists…hix…

  • Trish

    Does anyone know what brand her shades are?

    • valeshiaki

      i think they look like YSL or d&g?!

    • H

      her shades are Louis Vuitton

  • hamda

    o its damn gorgeous bag with great great looks ,simply amazing with crocodile skin looks.and obviously is really expensive but i can’t see the price here.but seriously its one of the stunning piece.

  • Demi

    Oh my God!!! I love this bag!!! The colour is one of my favourites! The skin looks so precious… it must be really expensive, though! Too bad I can’t afford it… If I could I’d buy tons of H bags!!! :)

    The color is amazing!

  • YR

    A birkin is a birkin eventhough i prefer a croco kelly over it… I have a huge collection of both probably more than VB and I can assure that everytime I walk out with one, the stares I get is worth every moment.. especially with my 35cm Grey Himaliyan…
