How do I know I’m buying a genuine Hermes bag or hermes replica bag

The history of the Hermes Birkin Bag

birkin replica I’ve often felt like perhaps I wasn’t born in quite the right era. Perhaps I would have suited the roaring twenties better? Or perhaps the 50s? No, it was without a doubt the 60s that would’ve been my style. A little feminist revolutionary rocking and rolling to the new found groove. I love the make-up, the style and I love the stars that emerged from this fantastic era.

Jane Birkin. Actress, singer and style icon.

kelly bag replica One, in particular, Jane Birkin, regularly inspired my teenage looks, even before my passion for Hermes was nurtured. During the late 1960s, she had the chic, edgy but elegant style arena wrapped up. She was the epitome of natural beauty with her swinging London fashion easing her into the cool counter cultures and a fantasy film repertoire. Birkin appeared in the psychedelic film ‘Wonderwall’ (1968) and then co-starring alongside Serge Gainsbourg in ‘Slogan’ (1969). The two performed a duet that was to cause scandal for its sexual explicitness and was banned on radio in UK, Spain, and Italy. And so began her career. Actress, singer and style icon Jane Birkin was born.

Carrying a basket out to black-tie events, wearing her hair in bangs, the sex kitten black kohl – all look to be emulated across the globe by young admiring women.

Birkin confessed to Dumas that it had been difficult to find a leather weekend bag she liked. Thus, in 1984, he created a roomy black leather bag just for her.

replica hermes belts Sometimes your heart just skips a beat when you lay eyes on a truly special accessory or outfit you know you just have to have. The love affair with your Hermes will go on for many moons… And perhaps surpass other love affairs along the way! Aside from this heady mix of endorphins, one must always assess the checklist below before finally taking this new addition home.

1. AUTHENTICITY

Always check the authenticity before buying your first Hermes handbag:

• The shape of the bag and the quality of the leather or skin

• The bag can stand up on its own four feet

• Perfectly spaced tight slanted stitching (always going in the same direction)

• Embossed markings on one of the closure straps showing the year of manufacture

• Gilt markings located on the front face under the flap

• Your bag should also be supplied with a couchette lock and two keys

• The clochette is made from one piece of leather

• Each new bag comes with packaging & accessories (see list below)

• Finally check the Hermès accent on the embossing, gilt and lock

Use our Hermès Authenticity Guide for a more comprehensive (and illustrated) guide to the key things to look out for.

2. CONDITION

Any new Hermès bag should be in pristine condition. Imperfect bags do not leave the manufacturer so any defects will be a clear indication of a fake bag.

3. Color

replica birkin bag price Consider the color well. The most practical choices are the neutral shades – and if they are in a limited edition shade then all the better. If you are keen for a bright vivid color – then the reds, blues and the ‘H’ Hermes orange are also great first choices. Use our Hermès Colour Chart to view the range of colors available.

4. SKIN

hermes bags replica Choose a durable leather. Togo – on the right – is the most popular leather, a cowhide with a natural grain. Epsom leather – on the left – is also very sought after as it maintains the shape of the bag very well and is more water resistant than some of the other leathers. Epsom has a man-made grain. Ostrich and lizard are extremely hard to find these days as Hermes rarely make bags in these skins.

5. PACKAGING & ACCESSORIES

Your new Hermes handbag will come in its Hermes orange box with ribbon. Each new bag will also come with the following:

• Hermes herringbone cloth bag

• Clear stickers on all hardware

• Clochette and two keys

• Strap for Kelly bags

• Hermes care card for leather / exotic skin

• Hermes raincoat (to protect the bag if it rains, snows…)

BIRKIN, FASHION, HERMÈS, HERMES BAG, JANE BIRKIN, STYLE

The fact they are instantly recognizable without a large emblazoned logo only adds to their appeal, she added, although clever marketing by Hermes also helps.

“By not telling ladies how many are manufactured in a year, the idea that these are scarce makes them more desirable. It is human nature to want what others cannot get,” Fendelman said.

Both Christie’s and Fendelman agree that even the most basic Birkins hold their price, making them a sound investment as well as an impressive fashion statement.

“I remember when I wanted to purchase a Birkin bag at auction for about $7,500 and my husband thought I had lost my mind,” she said. “That same bag today sells for double that price, at least.”

Collectors’ items

Interest in these aftermarket bags (“second-hand” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it) has grown rapidly, and Christie’s now includes an accessories and handbags section in many of its major sales around the world.

While many women used to bid on the bags for their practicality and style, the promise of increasing value has become an important consideration.

replica hermes twilly Winsy Tsang, head of sales for handbags and accessories at Christie’s in Hong Kong, said the value of these types of auction items generally increase, and that although Hermes leads the way, handbags from Bulgari, Chanel, and Gucci were also popular as investment pieces.

“They are certainly an increasingly meaningful asset class,” Tsang added.

As for Fendelman’s Birkin, much to her husband’s relief — and her own, in retrospect — she missed out on the sale.

“Am I sorry I didn’t purchase the bag? No, not really, because I would be afraid to use it every day for fear of ruining it,” she said.

Created as a combo of a clutch and a handbag with long chain strap made up of diamonds, the chain of the bag could be detached to be used as a bracelet or a necklace while the bag can be carried as a clutch. It is gilded with 2000 diamonds that further beautify the charm of this whimsical piece of art. Not just this but the bag itself consists of a large 8-carat pear-shaped diamond which is again can be used separately and adorned the handbag to make it a class apart.

Once launched, this luxurious article was the center of attraction for the spectators who wholeheartedly appreciated the genius designer for its most sophisticated and elegant creation. With this, the bag secured a sound position on the list of most ravishing statement bags and earned a lot of business for the designer and the label as well.

The tony handbags are believed to be a good investment because their value is almost certain to increase.

A Hermes Birkin Bag values study published on Basshunter in January 2016 compared the investment opportunities of the Birkin Bag to that of the S&P 500 and gold.

replica hermes duffle bag “However, unlike the S&P 500 and gold markets,” the report stated, “the value of Hermes Birkin handbags has never fluctuat[ed] downwards and has steadily and consistently increased. The bags experienced a peak surge in value in 2001, increasing in value by 25%, and with the lowest increase in 1986 when the value went up by 2.1%.” According to the report, the bag sees an increase in value year on year of 14.2 percent.

replica birkin bag hermes price list Adding to their cache as a smart investment is their status as ultra-luxury. “There is a difference between luxury and ultra-luxury,” Evelyn Fox, founder of Basshunter has said. “While the luxury market suffers during worse economic times the ultra-luxury market is impervious to economic factors that can affect other industries such as high-street retail and stock markets.”

Previously, both Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian have been spotted carrying Himalaya Birkin bags.

The bag carried a pre-sale estimate of $193,500 to $258,000. The previous record for a Himalaya Birkin bag, which also had white gold and diamond hardware, was $300,168 set in 2016. That’s a 25 percent increase this time around.

A white Himalaya Niloticus crocodile Kelly bag came in third place at USD $153,188 (HDK 1,187,500).

The next high-priced Birkin bag coming up for auction that could possibly break a new record will be in June for a lizard bag with ruthenium hardware.

replica hermes belt bag In recent years, handbags have become a new collecting category at auction, with the coveted Birkin bag making up a noteworthy 90 percent of the secondary market for collectible handbags. Made exclusively for the actress Jane Birkin in 1984, the bag has become the ultimate status symbol. Birkin, herself made headlines in 2015 when she asked the company to take her name off the bag after she was alerted to the cruelty of the process of slaughtering crocodiles in the making of the bag. Her actions haven’t deterred buyers.

hermes belt replica Because the process of dying crocodile hide is time-consuming, only one or two diamond Himalayas bags are made each year globally, according to the Christie’s website. It’s their scarcity, owing to the limited production runs (there are waiting lists of several years for the exceptional bags), that make the bags so sought-after.

replica herme bag A Hermes Birkin Bag with 18-karat white gold and diamond hardware broke the record for the most expensive bag ever sold at auction when it went to a bidder for $380,000 (HKD2,940,000) at Christie’s Hong Kong on May 31. The total for the Handbags & Accessories sale, including the buyer’s premium, was US$4,812,070 (HKD 37,493,800).

birkin bag replica The bag, made in 2014 of Niloticus crocodile-skin that is dyed to have a delicate gradation in color from white to tan ombre, is said to resemble the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas and is considered the Holy Grail of handbags. Monika Arora, founder of 2018 defines a “Holy Grail Bag” as the “most desired” bag on your wish list at any moment, and one that is “often difficult to acquire due to cost or scarcity.”
