Hermès Birkin Bag
The Hermès Birkin Bag is considered the most iconic designer bag of all times. However or rather because of its cult status, it also ranks high when it comes to its price and can be seen as a status symbol and a lucrative investment. Even a place on the waiting list is hard to get hold of and it can actually take a few months or even years to get the Hermès Birkin Bag.
What makes the Hermès Birkin Bag so special?
The iconic Hermès Birkin Bag was firstly released in 1984. It is available in six different sizes and in the most luxurious materials (including ostrich leather, lizard or crocodile skin). The Hermès Birkin Bag is definitely an eyecatcher and looks very elegant on every occasion. The B35 is the most popular size – spacious, yet not too heavy and therefore great for the everyday use. The Birkin Bag is handmade in the Parisian ateliers which takes 72 hours to two weeks for every single bag. To this day, the Hermès Birkin Bag is considered the most sought-after designer bag in the world!
How can the Hermès Birkin Bag be styled?
The Hermès Birkin Bag is high up on every fashionistas’ wishlist and, of course, celebrities love the luxurious piece as well – from Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klum to Eva Longoria and the Olsen Twins, they can all call a Birkin Bag their own! The different ways they style it show: the Hermès Birkin Bag is a very versatile accessory that gives every look an elegant and timeless touch. Actress and designer Ashley Olsen styles her Hermès Birkin Bag in cognac quite casual with an oversized cape, a simple shirt in white and distressed skinny jeans. Lace-up boots and aviator sunglasses make the look complete. Supermodel Heidi Klum is known for her elegant style and wears her bright green Hermès Birkin Bag tone in tone to a simple blouse and tailored pants.
How much does a new Hermès Birkin Bag cost and what is a good price for a second-hand Hermès Birkin Bag ?
The Hermès Birkin Bag is considered the ultimate cult piece among designer bags! However, due its high price point and the long waiting list, it is not that easily attainable! For example, a Hermès Birkin Bag made of exotic crocodile leather can cost at least 16.500€ since three to four reptile skins are needed for its production. A classic Hermès Birkin in calf leather costs around 8000 to 12000€, the most expensive one was sold for $1.9 million as the world’s most expensive bag. The prices for Hermès bags are increasing year by year and some consider it as a safer investment than gold or stocks.
