Hermès Birkin Himalayan crocodile bag review

Today we are going to speak about an outrageous priced handbag, one that costs more than some people spend to buy a new house. This purse is called Hermès Birkin Himalayan crocodile and its price tags says $300,000. We are accustomed with Hermes’ staggering prices and the incredibly long waiting list for buying one of their Birkin bags, but this is just insane. No doubt about it, it is the most expensive Hermes purse so far.

I have to admit that the handbag is stunning and that it has a couple of very important qualities that kind of justify why someone who is rich would spend that much on a bag. The Himalayan crocodile purse measures 30 cm and it is one of the rarest models on the globe. The product is hand made from Nilo crocodile skin in a discrete color that is reminiscent for the imposing  Himalayan mountains. This shade is obtained through a special dyeing process that takes a lot of work and time. To match the subtle color of the leather, the bag comes with 18 karat white gold hardware decorated with white diamonds. The iconic cadena lock of the Birkin is manufactured from 68 grams of 18 k white gold and studded with 40 white round diamonds. The overall purse has over 200 diamonds on its three different structural elements- the Plaques de Sanglons, the Pontets and the Touret.

The Hemes Birkin Himalayan crocodile bag was created in a limited number and was offered to a very short list of VIP clients. This very significant detail increased the purse’s value on the resell market so currently to acquire this model that is no longer in production thus not available for purchase you need to pay over $432,000. Hermes is the only handbag manufacturer that can sell on the secondary market at a higher price than its retail price.

People describe this jaw-dropping Hermes as one of the rarest and most desirable handbag in the world. And making one involves extensive work. It took a Hermes artisan about an year to craft the purse and the brand guarantees its sturdiness by vowing to repair it any scratches or damages immediately.  Considering the scandalous price I seriously doubt that anyone would ever wear or handle the bag without extreme care. I, for one, would keep it on a pedestal if I had one.

Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Tamara Ecclestone and Marjorie Harvey are just a few of the celebrities that own this much-sought after purse. A couple of very interesting thing about Victorian Beckham and Kim Kardashian who are huge fans of Hermes Birkin bags. Victoria Beckham has a collection of Hermes purses that is estimated at over 2 million dollars while Kim Kardashian has so many Birkin that she uses one for the gym and has another one that has been hand painted by her daughter to look more interesting. For those who are not familiar with the price range for a regular Birkin, the most ‘inexpensive’ version costs about $10,000.

So there you go gals, if you needed something to treat your eyes with then you have certainly found it. The Hermes Birking Himalayan crocodile purse is a spectacular model that is manufactured from rare crocodile skin and is decorated with 18 k white gold and white diamonds. It is a luxurious bag that is available only for Hermes’ elite.

Irina Shayk Appears to Have a New Croc Birkin

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.”

Check Out Kate Upton’s Stunning Celine Crocodile Luggage Tote

Kate Upton carries a Celine Crocodile Luggage Tote in NYC (5)

September’s already been very good to Kate Upton – she snagged the coveted Model of the Year award at the Style Awards this week, and she’s currently doing her best Marilyn Monroe impersonation on the cover of the most recent issue of Vanity Fair, which celebrates the publication’s 100th anniversary. Here she is arriving in NYC for the Style Awards, carrying a Celine Crocodile Luggage Tote. You can shop authentic, pre-owned Celine bags at Portero.

While most Celine croc bags are simply croc-embossed leather, only authentic croc skin will do for the 2013 Model of the Year! That’s right, this one is the real deal Holyfield. We can’t verify this croc Celine’s exact price, but a python version of this bag currently retails for $5,600, so an authentic croc version would very likely be several thousand above that.
