Well, That Was Quick: New Record Hermès Birkin Auction Rings Up at Over $300k

Categories:Other Brands

If it seems like it was very recently that we brought you news of a brand new world record Hermès Birkin sale, that’s because it was. In April, Privé Porter sold a Birkin in braise red crocodile for $298,000 to a collector in California, but now, according to CNN, that figure has been eclipsed by a Birkin sold by Christie’s in Hong Kong for just over $300,000.

The Birkin, seen above, is a 30cm in Himalayan Niloticus crocodile, finished with diamond-encrusted 18k gold hardware. The final auction price was $300,168, and a representative for Christie’s described the anonymous buyer as a “private Asian collector.” The bag will undoubtedly be the jewel of his or her collection.

In a market where it’s increasingly simple for shoppers across the globe to get their hands on exactly the bag they want at any time, competition for the rarest Birkins among the world’s wealthy elite has escalated quickly. It wasn’t long ago that it was rare to hear that a bag sold for six figures at all, and now Birkins priced above $100,000 pop up for purchase at a click of the button at Moda Operandi from time to time. Now that auction prices have hit the mid-six figures, it’s anyone’s guess as to where the bags’ final values may eventually level out, and if the speed of the auction prices’ increase is any indication, we may not find out for years.

Custom-Made Or Original Quality Fake Birkin Bag: Where, How Much And Why

Categories:Other Brands

Now here’s the thing: the Birkin is one of the most iconic and also one of the most expensive handbags in the world, so if you want your fake Birkin bag to pass off as authentic, don’t expect it to be cheap.

In my last post on Hermes I shared what I considered to be the best replica Hermes bags sites for different budgets. Even if a fake Birkin bag is not original quality and has some flaws, it can still look amazing and very hard to spot as a fake. But for those of you who are looking for flawless replicas, then custom-made Hermes replica bags are the only way to go. It’s amazing that nowadays you can find Hermes knock off bags made of original leather with original hardware and handstitched too!

Customized Hermes Birkin Bag

Personalized Hermes Birkin Bag Is A Thing

There are a few replica sites that offer Hermes fake Birkin bag customization services but I don’t trust all of them. Here are the sites I know for sure that are not scam. Here are the pros and cons for each of them:

Ubgallery.co (Uncle Bench) Custom-Made Fake Birkin Bag

During the years, I’ve received some of the best replica handbags reviews for this site. The problems with this site usually revolved around their poor communication and long shipping time but never around the quality of their bags. They’ve always been a top site for replica Hermes bags and this hasn’t changed in all the years they’ve been on the market and they’ve also improved their communication a lot lately.

They don’t offer just handmade quality fake Birkin bag but also other popular Hermes designs, like the Kelly Hermes replica, the Constance bag or wallets.

Pro: they offer plenty of information on their custom-made Hermes bags. You will find two very detailed blog posts on their site on authentic Hermes leather and on different grades of Hermes. These two posts cover pretty much anything you would need to know about the leather they use and the three different grades of Hermes replica they have: authentic quality, best hand-made and imported leather. I know this may sound like the same thing, but they’re not. This means that you actually have three options for custom-made fake Birkin bag depending on your budget.

Uncle Bench Different Grades of Hermes Quality

For custom orders you can either send them an image of the Hermes bag you want or write a very detailed description so that they understand exactly what you want.

They will also send quality control pictures for you to approve or disapprove, which is great because they will ship your order out only after you’ve agreed it’s what you wanted.

Cons: They do not offer a guarantee in case the package gets seized, so you won’t get neither a reship not a refund. They do offer repair services and free replacements parts if needed.

You need to be patient if you decide to order your authentic-looking fake Birkin bag from them, especially if it’s a custom-made bag. But it will probably be worth it.

Payment methods: Western Union and Bank Transfer only.

Price range: 1,180 USD – $8, 800 for the replica Birkin bags shown on their site. Imported leather fake Birkin bag is the cheapest and custom-made can be more expensive.

Hermessale.biz Original Quality Replica Hermes Bags

This Hermes replica bags site has great customer service. Everyone who ever dealt with Tracy was happy with the communication and the way Tracy treated them. This is a site I trust and they have a good return policy too. Most replica sites don’t cover the case where the package gets seized by customs but they do. Just like they state on their site, a risk-free return policy like this is rare. In case that happens, they will either deliver the package again or offer a full refund. Their return policy definitely stands out.

Their original quality Hermes replica bags look great but you have to be really careful with the stamp because unfortunately not all their fake Birkin bags have great stamps. But their quality control staff will send detail pictures of any part of your knock off Birkin bag before shipment, so if you find any defect, they will delay shipment until it’s fixed.

Just like in the case of UB, you need to be patient with special orders like this and it’s highly understandable if you ask me. Once you approve your purchase, the decision is final, you can’t change the products. Also very understandable, nothing to be worried about. It’s like ordering a custom dress meant to fit your body perfectly and then decide you no longer want it. You just can’t do that.

Price range for an original quality fake Birkin bag varies from $750 (Birkin 25) to $12,380.00 for on original crocodile Birkin. Pretty shocking, right? But the regular price varies from $980 to $1,280.

Hermessale.biz Original Quality Crocodile Leather Replica Birkin Bag

Hermessale.biz Genuine Crocodile Replica Birkin Bag

Hermessale.biz original quality replica Birkin bag stitching options: machine stitching, hand stitching outside and machine stitching inside or full hand stitching for exotic leather fake Birkin bag but it’s really expensive. And I mean REALLY!

Payment options: Western Union or MoneyGram only for their most expensive bags. They also take Bank Transfer for some of the bags.

Luxeche.com Custom-Made Hermes Knock Off

Luxeche is a different kind of site. Unlike Hermessale or Uncle Bench, you can’t see detail photos of their fake Hermes bags on the site. According to them, this is their way of stopping others from stealing their photos.

They also offer less information on their custom-made Birkin bag knock off. They say they will send pictures of the bag before shipment and solve the problem if there is one but only after you have already made the payment. For customs orders you need to choose the material, size and all the other details or even personalized stamps. But there are additional charges for special demands like these. Still cool if you ask me.

Luxeche.com Fake Birkin Bag Special Order

Fake Birkin Bag Custom-Made Service on Luxeche.com

Please be careful, their goods are non-refundable and custom-made goods cannot be exchanged. In my opinion, their returns & exchanges policy is the worst in this list. They’re my least favorite for custom made fake Birkin bag but maybe I’m wrong. Please share some feedback if you’ve ever ordered from Luxeche.com!

Payment options: Western Union and Bank Transfer only.

There’s no mention of the prices, but according to them all their bags are 100% hand-stitched, so if that’s true, I’m guessing they’re not cheap.

Pro: they make custom hot-stamps too and they offer a wide variety of leather types and colors.

Their custom-made takes 10-30 working days so again, if you decide to order from this site, you need to be patient.

HermesCopies.com Custom-Made Hermes Replica

This site offers custom-made products as well. I’ve never ordered or received reviews of this site, so unfortunately I don’t have first-hand information on it. All I can tell you is what I’ve read on their site but if any of you knows more about this replica bags site, please share.

What I’ve noticed is that some of the photos on their site are the same as on Hermessale.biz, with the same prices too. But since I don’t know for sure if they’re related in any way or not, I’d rather recommend Hermesale.biz because I’m sure about them.

HermesCopies.com Hermes Replica of Your Choice

Custom-Made Hermes Replica on HermesCopies.com

What I like about HermesCopies.com: they are willing to send a piece of leather sample with your order and if you want a fake Birkin bag color they don’t show on their site, they will communicate with their factory and let you know if they can provide that particular color for you. A customized bag takes 10-15 business days to make.

It seems they are willing to send pre-shipment photos too.

Leather options: imported leather from Italy – higher quality and Brazil imported leather – not as soft. Their exotic leathers are actually made of local leather (so China leather), so don’t expect great quality.

Please note that their customized fake Birkin bag is just an opportunity to choose a color. But their leather quality is not as good as one the other sites I’ve mentioned and they don’t make handstitched bags either. So they’re not even in the same league as the other replica sites.

Payment options: Western Union, MoneyGram and Bank Transfer.

All You Need To Know About The Replica Birkin Bag

These sites I’ve mentioned are not your regular Hermes knock off bag sites and I’m not saying this like it’s a bad thing. On the contrary, they took the replica game to the next level and that’s why the prices may seem too spicy for replica bags. But if you think about it, you’re still saving a lot of money and people will actually believe you are wearing the real thing.

If you have any other questions on custom-made fake Birkin bag, let me know!

HERMES HERBAG ZIP MM BAG IN NAVY CANVAS

Categories:Other Brands

Hermes-Herbag-Zip-Bag-4

A bag so-famous and so-wanted that it needs no introduction. Chance are, you’re hunting for one right now and the boutiques are kept telling you that they’re not available.

The Hermes Herbag Zip Bag is also known as the little sister of the Hermes Kelly Bag because they have many similarities. It features a Kelly lock closure and a removable zipped pouch in the interior.

For this season, there are two new medium sizes available. One is colored completely in black (the perfect color for the everyday bag). What’s more? It’s crafted in canvas mixed with cowhide and refined with silver and palladium detailing.

The second bag is painted partly brown and black, this is a nice mixture. The brown part is made in canvas while the black part is crafted in cowhide.

Both bags feature a handle and a leather strap for cross body and shoulder option. Measuring 39 x 33 x 14 (L x H x D) cm, priced at €1820 euro or £1590 GBP via Hermes boutique.

Hermes works on becoming more transparent with its Petit h workshop chats

Categories:Other Brands

petit-h-hermes-11

The collection includes all sorts of quirky, humorous, random items such as glassware made from silk, boats, cars, illustrated tea pots, ornamental charms, bracelets, ping pongs, mirrors, gloves, jewellery, tags, jar handles and animals – including ostriches, camels, elephants and lizards. But when it comes to animals, they have to handle it with extreme caution. Damage control in the fashion industry is a serious matter. It is like a crack on a Ming vase. It could be fixed but the cracks will remain forever, even after all the efforts and work taken to cover it up. Hermés is a victim of such ill fate. After PETA tore down their elegant stand in the world of exclusive handbags, things went on a roll with every move of the brand being observed with a hawk’s eye. To make peace with this defamation, the brand is constantly trying to make amends.

The Tale of 4 Hermes Clutches

Categories:Other Brands

As I am now truly lucky enough to own the 4 Hermes clutches I most desired, I can now compare them all objectively AND subjectively.

unnamed

Hermes Medor

My first Hermes clutch was the Medor 23 cm in Argile tadelakt leather with Permabrass hardware.  You would be hard-pressed to find a more elegant but edgy, neutral warm toned clutch.  The permabrass hardware is a subtle gold tone, not as flashy as the regular gold hardware, and lends itself easier to mixing metals.  The Medor used to be made in a larger 29 cm size, but currently is only offered in the smaller 23 cm.  Approximate measurements are 23 cm in length, 13 cm in height, and 4 cm in width.  It is a compact clutch that fits beautifully and comfortably in the hand, and can also be tucked in your armpit if both hands need to be in use.  It can comfortably fit a lipstick, compact, tissues, small tube of lotion, keys, phone and cash/cards in the side pocket.  However, I personally find the Medor to be strictly an evening clutch.  The tadelakt leather, which is similar to box, is smooth and delicate and prone to scratches and may blister if exposed to water/rain.  Aside from exotic skin (croc/gator and lizard), I believe the Medor is only made in tadelakt or box (both smooth delicate leathers).  The closure is also not the easiest to open/close, so quick access can be an issue.  Lastly, lacking a handle, you can only carry it 2 ways: hand held or tucked in your armpit.  However, I still do love the Medor, and have since acquired a Gris Perle with PHW (the perfect cool-tone neutral evening clutch) and a Rose Lipstick with Permabrass HW which has since been re-homed as I hardly ever used it.

Hermes Jige

Next let’s take a look at the Jige.  The Jige comes in 3 different sizes, the GM, the PM and the elan.  I have the Jige PM which is the only size in this style I wanted, in a beautiful Rose Confetti epsom leather.  It measures approximately 29 cm in length, 19 cm in height, and 3 cm in width.  The GM is very large, almost briefcase like, and the elan is the same length but shorter in height than the PM.  Contrary to the Medor, I find the Jige to be a more casual clutch, best suited for daytime use and more casual evenings out, perhaps due to the lack of hardware and the more durable and practically waterproof Epsom leather.  The closure allows for easy access.  This is a larger clutch than the Medor 23 cm, and I can fit all of the above items, plus a small wallet/card case and sunglasses.  Like the Medor, it can also only be carried 2 ways: hand held or tucked in your armpit.  I personally am not sure if I would purchase another Jige, unless it was offered in an amazing fun pop color.  Aside from Epsom leather, it is also offered in swift and exotic skin.

Hermes Kelly Pochette

Now let’s turn our focus to the Kelly clutches which both have the same flap, sangles and turnlock closure as the bigger Kelly bags.

The Kelly Pochette is an adorable, small clutch with a short handle, and is deceptively roomy.  I have this in a beautiful vibrant pink Rose Tyrien in epsom leather with PHW.  It measures approximately 22 cm in length, 14 cm in height, and 7 cm in maximum width at the base.  It is the only clutch with a flat wide base that allows it to stand on it’s own, like a mini bag.  It fits all the same items that fit in the Jige PM.

Hermes Kelly Cut

The other Kelly clutch is the Kelly Cut, and in my eyes, this is the more elegant edgier older sister to the Kelly Pochette.  It has the same short handle, but is longer and thinner.  It measures approximately 31 cm in length, 13 cm in height, and 2.5 cm in width.  As some of you may know, my Rose Jaipur epsom GHW Kelly Cut is the newest addition to my clutch/bag collection, and clearly the style which took me the longest to find in my exact specifications (color, leather and hardware).  This clutch fits less than the Pochette, and about the same amount of items as what can fit in the Medor 23 cm.

Kelly Cut versus Kelly Pochette

I find both Kelly clutches to be the most versatile, in terms of transitioning from day to night, and also in terms of how they can be carried.  Whereas the Medor and Jige can only be carried 2 ways, the Kelly clutches allow a 3rd way of being carried because of the short handle.  The closure is also very easy for me, as I leave the sangles undone and hanging down, while only closing the flap into the turnlock, making it an easy one step open/close.  If you have these in epsom leather, it is worry and fuss-free for daytime use, but the hardware adds that extra special touch that allows it to be dressy enough for evening.  Of course, they are also available in more delicate and dressy leathers such as swift and exotic skin (lizard, ostrich, gator and croc).

I hope you’ve found my personal review of these Hermes clutches useful.  I think everyone should own at least one clutch, because there is nothing more perfect for evening wear, and if chosen properly, can also be used for a sleek streamlined daytime look.  In my experience, all of these clutches are extremely hard to find in stores, even more so than the Birkin or Kelly bags.  I was told once by my lovely SA that they can get 10 bags to 1 clutch.  Personally, the Kelly clutches, particularly the Kelly Cut, were the hardest for me to find, having waited years to be offered the perfect ones for me.

And now that I have all 4 clutch styles I ever wanted from Hermes, you are probably wondering if I have a personal favorite… and yes, well yes I do…. for me, it would have to be the Kelly Cut, for all the reasons I have mentioned above.

Covet That Classic: Hermès Birkin

Categories:Other Brands

You know it’s a party when you can feast your eyes on Hermès Kelly, Constance and Lindy bags in the same room. But it is the beautiful Birkin bag that always catches my eye. Free of logos, it is still one of the most recognized bags in the fashion world and public alike, since 1984.

image 01

Created and named in honour of actress Jane Birkin, the Birkin is highly coveted–the six-year waiting list has held and possibly even increased, the bag’s value with age. Though the list no longer exists since 2010, it doesn’t mean there is any less demand for this leather beauty. With a high resale value, the Birkin bag is on every fashionista’s wish list.
image 03

Bigger than the Hermès style named after Grace Kelly, the Birkin bag features a lockable flap closure and two handles–the Kelly only has one handle. Featuring a number-coded lock and keys in a leather clochette, the iconic bag is indeed a sight to behold.

image 02

Available in six sizes (25, 30, 35, 40, 50 and 55 centimeters) and a wide variety of colours, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to investing in your first Birkin.

With a variety of hides, from calf-leather to ostrich and lizard skins, the most expensive Birkin yet is the saltwater crocodile skin. Fun fact: the bags with smaller scales are more costly than those with larger scales. A health warning to note: with a goatskin interior, the Birkin bag is one heavy handbag.

image 04

While I particularly like the gold-plated metallic hardware, there has been interesting customization of the metal lock in leather or diamond additions to truly make it a one-of-a-kind.

Don’t just remember these facts about this classic bag; view Reebonz’s Royale selection of beautiful pieces to adorn your wardrobe today.

Start coveting, start investing. The Hermès Birkin will never run out of style.
