Bags are an incredibly useful invention. Since their conception they have allowed humans to venture far and wide. Like everything else, bags too have developed over time to take any avatars. In today’s world, they are also viewed as a status symbol. Women in particular like to flaunt their expensive handbags. Many companies have joined this fray to cater to these femme fatales. And, Hermes handbag is leading the pack with it’s six figure price.
Who are Hermes?
Hermes is a French luxury goods manufacturer. It was established in 1837. They make lifestyle accessories and home furnishings. They also make perfumes, jewelry, watches and ready to wear stuff. But, our focus today is the Hermes handbag.
What about the handbag?
Hermes handbags are usually made from exotic materials and sometimes features diamonds or gold. The most expensive one till date was the Hermes Himalayan Crocodile Birkin 35 bag. The bag was fashioned out of crocodile skin and came encrusted with gold and diamonds. It became the most expensive handbag ever sold at an auction after fetching approx $400,000
This isn’t the only Hermes handbag to command six figures though. Recently, Vestiaire Collective unveiled an exclusive collection. The collection featured three Hermes handbags. On of them is a thirty centimeter Birkin bag in brown or pink color. It is made out of crocodile skin and is priced at 162,000 Euros.
The most notable one though is the 35 centimeter Hermes handbag. It is made out of black crocodile skin. The handbag has a fairly muted exterior. The only shiny thing is the diamond encrusted clasp. The plain exterior offers a nice contrast with the clasp and gives off an air of sophistication.
How much for this beauty?
The price? 220,000 Euros ($250,610) only. A steal if you ask me.
