It was just last June that we reported to you about a new high in handbag resale prices: Christie’s Hong Kong had just sold a pink crocodile Hermès Birkin for a record high of $221,000. That record didn’t even make its first anniversary; earlier this week, Privé Porter announced it had broken that record with a $298,000 Birkin of its own, and it’s one that will look familiar to PurseBlog readers.
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.

Yes, indeed, as it is wider at the base it holds more.If you are literally serious about trend than that is the bag for you having an edgy flap and an open bag facility unlike Kelly bags. You can easily access all of your belongings as the top is available. It is started to show a matte interior with zipper compartment and a large sized patch pocket to slip your i-pad or perhaps your mac publication too!The immaculately turned-out store helper in the Hermes concession at Harrods is adamant. ‘ I am sorry, madam, we can not take an order and there is no waiting list,’ she snaps. ‘If they do arrive, they simply fly out of their shop. In all honesty, it’s not easy to get one. Fantastic luck. ‘On London’s Sloane Street, awash with rich Arab girls and designer stores, it is the exact same story. A liveried doorman waves me to the glistening Hermes emporium and I make my way to the handbag display.But when I announce ‘I’d love to get a Birkin handbag, please,’ the earnings assistant raises a eyebrow and a chill appears to fall round the counter.
