A normal Hermes Birkin 30 Bag in Togo leather is priced at $10900 USD today and it might sound very expensive, but it’s nothing compare the exclusive editions sold at auctions. The most expensive Hermes Bag is no doubt related to the Birkin family.

But why is Hermes Birkin Bag so expensive? Well first of all it has to do with the craftsmanship and the quality of the leather. And the Hermes Birkins is so popular that there is more demand than supply. Though we don’t know the exact numbers of production, but it has been said that one Hermes store only carries around 100 Birkin’s per year. So now you know why the SA keeps selling you the ‘no, it’s sold-out’ message.

Generally it takes 48 hours for one artisan to craft a Birkin Bag, but the exclusive edition in exotic leathers like Crocodile are even more limited because these leathers requires many years to reach maturity and there are strict ethical regulations before they can be sold internationally. The top Birkins are made with diamonds and gold, these treasures are assets, collectable items, investments, they’re stock that only goes up in value overtime.

To get you an idea of what the market is prepare to offer, here are the top 5 Hermes Birkin Bags that are sold at an ridiculous price.

1. Hermes Birkin Bag in Red Crocodile Leather was sold at an auction in 2011 for $95,000 USD.

2. Hermes Birkin Bag in Blue Crocodile Leather was sold at an auction in 2011 for $113,525 USD.

3. Hermes Birkin Bag in Himalayan Nilo Crocodile with 9,84 carats of diamond was sold in 2014 for $185,000 USD.

4. Hermes Birkin Bag in Red Crocodile Leather was sold for $203,150 USD at an auction in 2011.

5. Hermes Birkin Bag in Fuchsia Crocodile Leather with 18-karat diamond-studded white gold clasp and lock was sold in 2014 for $221,846 USD in Hong Kong. This was the most expensive Birkin handbag ever sold at auction.

A bag becomes expensive when it’s made from exotic leather and embellished with precious stones. When it has been carried by a celebrity or a royal family member, the value generally goes up. And when you keep that bag longer and longer, it becomes even more exclusive overtime and it can be sold for an incredible high price.

Other Brands


Because I’ve been getting so many DMs, Messenger messages and emails regarding these puppies that were posted on Instagram today, I thought, hey, might as well do a quick blog post.

Yes, these are from Chanel’s Pre-Spring 2017 collection, a pair of Chanel’s very popular Boy Chanel bags that are now available in-store at boutiques locally. Measuring just 20 cm by 12 cm by 7 cm, these wee beauties come in Caviar leather (yes, my absolute favourite kind, grained calf leather), come in colours Black and Fuchsia and are perhaps the prettiest bags around today you can spend your hard-earned SGD5710 on. Or send this post to your loved one and keep those fingers really crossed till Valentine’s Day.

Spring-Summer 2017 Accessories Supreme

Other Brands


Mention Supreme to anyone and you’ll either get a blank look or a knowing smile. Yes, it’s THE brand that produces the most bizarre accessories and it’s something you either love, or hate. As for myself, I’m pretty new to Supreme, and began my collection a couple years back when I paid a premium to get some cool accessories (actually just a Supreme-branded hand grip and some badges) at a reseller store in Tokyo. I even queued (I don’t queue. Period) in the rain when I was in New York City last year in November just to get some goodies. It’s almost a quest of sorts. You know those apartments with Hello Kitty-branded everything? I want mine to be branded with everything Supreme. Get it?

And while I was fortunate to get some pieces from their F/W16 collection, I have my doubts regarding scoring anything from their upcoming S/S17 collection, especially with Louis Vuitton’s latest collaboration that must have surely made the brand more ‘mainstream’ than ever before. Still, I’m hopeful, and some of the pieces I want include what you see above, from Supreme-branded metal storage boxes (oh yes!) to a stool from Artek Aalto. There is the the pills ceramic tray, the beaded curtain (yes, crazy, I know) and even the pocket measuring tape that are definitely must-haves.

Now excuse me while I go plot hard on how to make it even possible and please wish me (and my wallet) luck.
