The Hermès Birkin International Price Guide

Categories:Other Brands

There is no designer handbag in the world as elusive as the Hermès Birkin. The legendary French leather goods house keeps a tight lid on everything about the bag, from the best way to get one to which colors and leathers might be available in a particular size or hardware type at any given time. Among the biggest mysteries around the Hermès Birkin, though, is its pricing structure, and we’ve done some digging to clear up Birkin prices as much as we can.

Beyond general Hermès secrecy, several factors make determining Birkin prices tricky. First, the bag’s price varies widely among Hermès’s extensive leather offerings, even before you start looking at exotics. There’s also much variation between international markets, and since Birkins are sought-after worldwide, understanding how currency and location can affect what you pay is important for the brand’s high-flying clientele. There are also frequent price increases to take into account–finding an Hermès Birkin price list from a year ago likely won’t give you an accurate picture of what the bag will cost now. On top of that, pop culture media loves to inflate the Birkins price tag to bring in readers looking to gawk at the wealthy–$30,000 is often the fake price tag used, and even Fortune claims the bags start at $12,000, which is patently false.

What we’ve set out to do is create an Hermès Birkin price list for three of the most common leathers–Clemence, Togo and Epsom–in the four sizes that are commonly used as women’s handbags. Right now, we’re focusing on the US, eurozone Europe, the United Kingdom and Japan, which are the four global markets for which pricing information is most available. Below, check out our findings, pulled from bothour PurseForum and price lists across the web.

The information is incomplete, but we’ll be filling it in as much as possible as we find more information. If you know any current prices that aren’t represented below, please let us know in the comments!

We all know how hard it is to find a ‘Hermes Birkin Bag’, but one lady snapped it like it was dropped from heaven…accidentally.

Perhaps it was pure luck, if so, then life can you give me more luck?

Here are the facts; it’s a Birkin to be jealous about, in gorgeous strawberry-red color and refined in golden hardware. Packed in the traditional orange box with black stripes around the edges. It’s truly priceless.

Do you want to hear her story?

Well, her name is Betty and her hubby was in Antwerpen for some ties. He walked into a Hermes shop and got introduced to this baby; an Hermes Birkin Tote Bag in size 40 (perfect size by the way). It’s crafted in durable Taurillon Clemence.

It could be pure luck, but isn’t this bag stunning?

And you must be wondering about the price now? We were told that the price was 8200 euro. Well, do you think that you need to be lucky to get a Birkin or…?

(Betty, it was great buy! Congrats with your new bag!)

Heritage Auctions’ Super Rare Hermès Birkin Sold For $185,000

Categories:Other Brands


Not long ago, we brought you the tale of one very rare bag: the Hermès Himalayan Crocodile Birkin above, complete with pavé diamond hardware. The bag, arguably the most sought-after in the world, was about to be sold at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills, and some speculated that it might break price records. It didn’t quite make it that high, but it did sell for more than a respectable family home does in many perfectly lovely areas of our fine country.

The record-holder that the Himalayan bag needed to beat was that of another diamond-encrusted crocodile Birkin sold by Heritage, that one in glossy red. It sold for over $200,000, and I still can’t figure out exactly why; it’s a beautiful bag, for sure, but it’s not one that’s known to be rarer than any other exotic, diamond-encrusted Birkin. Perhaps the wife of an oil baron just particularly liked the color.

At any rate, the person who snapped up this Himalayan can count themselves lucky; Hermès has no plans to make additional Himalayan bags available and they’re considered extremely desirable to ultra-rich bag collectors, so snagging one at any price is something of a coup.

Irina Shayk Appears to Have a New Croc Birkin

Categories:Other Brands

Irina Shayk Hermes Crocodile Birkin

Here’s Irina Shayk, who definitely wins the prize for NYC’s most casual supermodel (RESPECT), going for a little morning walk in NYC while wearing flip flops, a sweatshirt and cut-off shorts, as well as carrying a glossy Hermès Crocodile Birkin. There is a small chance it might be alligator, but croc is more common for Hermès bags. We’ve never seen Irina with this bag before, so we’re guessing this is a fairly recent acquisition.

This isn’t Irina’s only Birkin, of course. We saw her with a bright blue Hermes Birkin back in June. Irina doesn’t have her own edition of “The Many Bags of…” just yet, but I suspect she’s probably on Amanda’s shortlist. In the meantime, you can check out more of Irina’s best bags in “50+ Bags on the Arms of Our Favorite Supermodels.”

Irina Shayk Givenchy Pandora Box Bag

Here’s supermodel Irina Shayk, crossing the street in the West Village while engrossed in her phone. She’s carrying a beautiful Givenchy Pandora Box Bag, which is (you guessed it) an even boxier, more structured take on the popular Pandora bag. You can find this extremely tempting new Givenchy design.

We just saw Irina in the city last month with a bright blue Hermes Birkin. A simple maxi dress or skirt accented with a conspicuously high-end bag seems to be her go-to look for summer 2014. Irina doesn’t have her own edition of “Many Bags” just yet, but you can see some of her best handbags in “50+ Bags on the Arms of Our Favorite Supermodels.”

Another sought after luxury purse is the Birkin bag named after famous actress Jane Birkin. She happened to travel on one airplane with Hermes president Jean-Louis Dumas and complained that the Kelly bag she owned was not comfortable for daily use - after that she co-designed the new bag with the French luxury brand. Price of Birkin bag starts from six thousand dollars up to whatever a true Birkin bag admirer is willing to pay. Wait time for Birkin bag is several years, although depending on availability of bag in the store one could simply go into shop and buy the desired Birkin. Birkin is very popular among celebrities and has become even more popular after featuring on the Sex and the City and Gilmore Girls. Now famous Birkin is available in smaller version designed by Jean Paul Gaultier. One of the ultimate versions is the bright blue 35 centimeter Hermes Birkin in Crocodile leather with Diamond detailings. A piece of art, nothing less.

There are rumours that one can actually go into the boutique of the brand and get a Birkin bag right away. The key is to buy some other Hermes products, be well dressed and know a lot about the brand merchandise. Whether it is true, nobody knows.

Every year thousands of replica Birkin bags are hand made in Asia. Nowadays quality and materials are very good and although it will not replace the original designer bag fake Hermes replica handbags cost less and have similar look than original purse. Replica Kelly Wallet will be the mirror image Hermes wallet. However replica fake Birkin bags and fake Hermes wallets is not a solution. Cheap fake purses are only distort the market.

The latest success is the beautiful Kelly Long Wallet in alligator. This is another luxury leather item available also in other materials from goatskin to calfskin, and in different colours. Its price is about $2000. This brand has always been about the excellence and luxury. The Kelly Long Wallet is sought after accessory. Most likely there soon be replica wallets all over the internet, copying this excellent French brand.
