Purchasing a Birkin directly from Hermes.

It’s well known among lovers of Hermes that getting your hands on a coveted Birkin bag is no easy task. Rumors have spread among forums and in discussions about lengthy waiting lists, a prior and extensive purchase history, and a lot of luck being required to even have a slight chance of purchasing a Birkin directly from Hermes.

What was so interesting about this investigation was the range of excuses provided to each of the three women who entered three separate boutiques and concessions. There didn’t seem to be a uniform response provided by the Hermes sales assistants, with many of the women left even more confused by their experiences.

The first ‘regular’ woman entered the Hermes concession in Selfridges, London, and informed the sales associate that she has “yearned to own a Birkin or Kelly” and was “at last in a position to so it.” The immediate response was that none were available in the store, even to view. When pressed further, the ‘regular’ woman was told that other Hermes stores ‘may’ have some in stock but that it was impossible for the sales associate to have access to that information, even a phone call was out of the question. Upon further questioning, the ‘regular’ woman was informed that maybe there will more coming into the concession but the time frame is unknown and the waiting list is a thing of the past, with Birkins and Kellys sold on a first come, first served basis.

The second attempt by a ‘regular’ woman to purchase a Birkin occurred at the same Hermes concession in Selfridges and in the New Bond Street store, both of which are located in London. The first stop was the concession in Selfridges who inform the customer that they ‘are not selling handbags today’ and they ‘don’t communicate’ with other stores. Trying her luck at the store on Bond Street, our ‘regular’ woman again requests to see a Birkin or Kelly bag and is met with the response that there are ‘none in stock’. Pressing him, she asks when they might arrive and is informed that the staff are unaware of what is on deliveries from Paris. A last ditch attempt to get on a waiting list is met with rejection as is an attempt to provide contact details. Instead the woman is told she should pop in every day on the off chance one has arrived on a delivery from Paris.

The third attempt by a ‘regular’ woman to purchase a Birkin directly from a Hermes store occurred in Manchester, United Kingdom. She tells the sales associate she has inherited some money and would like to take a look at a Birkin bag. The immediate response is that there are none in the store and the waiting list was closed two years ago due to high demand. The sales associate also confides that they have never had any in the Manchester store and she has only heard of rare occasions when someone has got lucky in a London store.

Gucci Resort 2018 Runway Bag Collection

Posted on 5th May 2018 in gucci handbags, replica gucci handbags

One of designer Alessandro Michele’s best tricks is simultaneously letting consumers feel like they know exactly what to expect from his new Gucci collections, but also that they have no idea what to expect. He has become so effective at those seemingly contradictory pursuits by building a vast aesthetic world at the brand, which is also one that can go in any new direction, at any time. 80s video games? MLB logos? The bizarre and macabre? All in a day’s work, and all on the runway at Gucci Fall 2018 yesterday in Milan.

Arguably the most notable accessories in the show were the faux severed heads, made in the image of the models who carried them. The whole show had a bit of a morbid medical feel to it, but when it came to the bags, things were a little more conventional. The lineup included a number of pretty flap bags on chain straps, as well as a new, basketball-shaped bag and some nylon backpacks and fanny packs that pulled through the 80s references from the Spring 2018 show. Check out all the runway bags below.

Gucci Resort 2018 Collection was recently held at the Palatine gallery of the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy, a place brimming with rich historical Renaissance influences. The collection specifically focused on an ancient Classical theme which reminds us of the glorious days of the Renaissance period. And what better way to accompany their haute couture than with a pair of bag accessories?There are several attention grabbing bags from Gucci Resort 2018 Runway Bag Collection, which deserves to be talked about and one of which is this new bag with an iconic design.

This rectangular shaped shoulder bag features the label’s well-famed original GG ,canvas diamond pattern, which is known as a symbol of luxury and has been a style staple in the Gucci line since the mid 1960’s. The GG canvas diamond pattern on the other hand is perfectly complemented by the iconic green and red web stripe placed in the middle, a design found in the straps of Gucci’s Original GG canvas tote. The bag is later finished off with a smooth leather all around the edges while the interlocking GG logo is placed in the upper middle portion for instant brand recognition. It also features a gold-tone chained shoulder for easy shoulder and across the body carrying.

Ophidia suede mini bag

Posted on 25th April 2018 in replica gucci handbags

Interest in Gucci handbags soared when Alessandro Michele took over as creative director in 2015, but the heritage brand has been turning out covetable, expertly crafted bags from the beginning. With a resurgence in the popularity of retro looks, vintage bags and new styles inspired by Gucci’s archives are in-demand once again, like the GG Supreme Dionysus, the Jackie Hobo and the Soho Tote. With timeless designs and meticulous craftsmanship, Gucci handbags are a worthy investment for the discerning shopper.

  • Blue suede with black patent leather trim
  • Blue and red Web
  • Gold-toned hardware
  • Oval enamel detail with metal Double G

The world of Ophidia evolves with the introduction of a mini bag shape. Made in soft suede trimmed with crackled patent leather and the House Web stripe, the design can be worn using an adjustable shoulder strap or attached to a separate bag with the attached key ring.Microfiber lining with a suede-like finish.Attached key ring that can attach to a separate bag.Front zipper pocket. Interior open pocket. Adjustable shoulder strap with a 25.5″ drop. Zipper closure .7″W x 4.5″H x 2″D.Made in Italy.

The Reason why I love Gucci handbag

Posted on 19th April 2018 in replica gucci handbags

Although I love a large designer bag (or any bag for that matter), small handbags and clutches have been recently catching my eye. Why? Well, first let’s talk about color and the ‘wow’ factor. I love colourful handbags, sparkly and shiny handbags too, however when you add these things to a Gucci handbag, it can be quite overwhelming, especially if you want to stand out – not your bag. If you are carrying a small designer bag, like a clutch, than the sky is pretty much the limit, since it won’t be distracting because of its small size. That’s why I love Gucci handbags; their clutches specifically; and trust me, I’m not the only one who feels this way!

Check out the photographs, above and below, of a couple of greatreplica handbags for travelling. First up we have Kelly Rutherford on set for Gossip Girl, with a Gucci wheeled suitcase. It really fir her character, Lily Van der Woodsen so well! Also, check out the photograph of a less than polished Kristen Stewert looking as though she doesn’t want to be bothered, below, with her Gucci carryon bag. Even when she’s not trying to be stylish, she still can’t help but look great!

Okay, I’m not saying that other people who don’t like Gwyneth aren’t classy (I don’t really know anything about them and they are free to like or not like whoever they want) but in my opinion, Gwyneth is a super posh (and amazingly gorgeous) lady who loves to live the good life. We have to remember that she has grown up privileged, and that Gucci designer bag on her arm probably isn’t her first or last Gucci bag. Maybe we should all just check our baggage at the door (unless it’s designer Gucci baggage, that is) when it comes to judging others on their appearance.

WHICH IS THE BEST HERMÈS BIRKIN SIZE?

Posted on 10th April 2018 in Hermes, Replica Hangbags

Image result for miu miu imitation bag

The increase in popularity of the Baby Birkin initially reflected growing demand for Hermès bags in Asian markets, where women tend to be relatively smaller in stature. For many, the other Birkin bag sizes were too large for their frame, and too heavy to carry. Subsequently, handbag designers began to produce “mini” bags, which spurred demand for the 25cm Birkins and Kellys worldwide.

As result, Hermès has increased production of the 25cm. That said, the supply is still not equal to the demand, which is why Baby Birkins sell for a substantial premium over retail in the secondary market. Furthermore, Hermès does not produce the same colors and or leathers in all sizes. There are more Baby Birkins found in swift leather—a smooth skin that shows colors vibrantly, but tends to not maintain its shape well in larger bags. Also, not all colors are produced in all sizes. Rose Sakura and Rose Azalea are two popular hues that cannot be found in the 35cm and are rare finds in the 30cm. Birkins in Togo, Clemence and Epsom leathers are more prevalent in the 30cm and 35cm sizes than the 25cm.

Baby Birkins are not for every woman. They look disproportionate on those who are tall and stately. The elegance is lost, and is replaced by a sense of “bad taste.”

Many women still prefer the 30cm and 35cm Hermès Birkin sizes, especially for everyday wear. These sizes are perfect for work, a luncheon, or out to dinner. They are similar in popularity to tote bags in that they have the room to carry all the essentials needed for business and travel. Additionally, they can be carried in hand or on the forearm. The Baby Birkincan only be held in hand.

While the 30cm is a good size for most women, there remains a large base of Hermès lovers who prefer the size of the 35cm Birkin. For them, it is the original, the classic. Other sizes may fall in and out of popularity, but the 35cm Birkin is timeless.

Miu Miu bags

Each Birkin bag size has its advantages and the choice depends on stature and lifestyle. Many Hermès collectors include all sizes in their collections. For us, an ideal collection might include a dark colored 25cm Birkin in crocodile or alligator for formal use, one or more bright color Birkins in 30cm and some classic neutral colors in 35cm.

How to Spot an Investment Piece

Posted on 4th April 2018 in Replica Hangbags

Image result for replica bag

There are many reasons to purchase a designer handbag – status, fashion, quality, craftsmanship – however, for many the purchase of a luxury handbag is also an investment. The majority of designer handbags are much like high-end vehicles in that the second the leave the shop or boutique they begin to lose value. However, there are some notable exceptions to this rule, namely Hermes and Chanel bags. Unlike other designer bags, these brands have actually steadily increased in value over the past few years and are noted as smart investment pieces.

These investment bags have long been a secret of the savvy investor who has sourced and purchased particular styles, materials, limited editions, and one off bags to resell on the secondary market at a later date. But, how do you know which bags will increase in value? What should you look out for on the market if you are considering an investment purchase?

Although there can never be any guarantee that a certain bag will increase in value, there are certainly ways to make an educated guess and provide the best opportunity for a higher resell value. Below we will take a look at some of the characteristics to look out for and why investing in an ultra-luxury handbag may be the smartest decision you’ve ever made.

Tips When Purchasing an Investment Bag

So, we know that Hermes and Chanel are the two brands with the most consistent and favorable increase in price year on year. However, just simply purchasing the first bag you find without any thought process won’t guarantee an increase in value a few years down the line. There are certain things to look out for such as:

Color

One of the most important considerations when purchasing an investment bag is the color. Yes, a bright pink bag may immediately catch the eye and look stunning, however, will that bright pink still be a fashionable color five years down the line? Probably not. For an investor, a neutral color such as black, brown, or gold has a much better chance of holding or increasing its value in the secondary market over time. These colors will always be in style and will always complement the outfit of the wearer. Although seasonal colors are eye-catching and seem like a great buy at the time, be sure to consider the possibility of that color becoming out of date and hard to shift in the future.

Limited Editions

Limited edition bags are an interesting prospect as they provide an excellent opportunity for investment, but only if the right styles are chosen. With limited edition bags, you want to find a style that appeals to the widest range of potential buyers as possible. Yes, that whacky limited edition bag may look great and stand out, but is it really something that will sell as easily as a different limited edition that features a special logo or stylish customization? There is no guarantee that a limited edition bag will still be in demand a few years down the line, however, as the number of bag collectors increase, the chances of shifting a limited edition bag are much greater.

Patience is a Virtue

One of the most important things to remember when purchasing an investment piece is patience. Patience is required when sourcing the right bag for investment. Don’t just jump in, but a bag, and immediately expect a return. Take your time to find the bag you feel has the best investment potential. Take advantage of services such as the Baghunter Bag Concierge service which helps you source almost any bag in any material and style. It is extremely important to buy a bag you are happy with and confident will provide a return in the future.

The second aspect of being patient is the wait after you have made the purchase. Don’t buy a bag and expect a return immediately. It may take a few years for your investment to grow, so be prepared to wait. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t use your bag as long as you…

Maintain the Condition

When reselling an investment piece, the most import factor in determining the resell price is the condition. If you keep your bag in pristine, excellent, or even very good condition you can expect an excellent return. However, if your bag is full of scratches or watermarks, you won’t get the most from your investment. If you’re never going to use the bag, ensure it is stored safely and properly and taken out of the box to breathe every few weeks.

Secondhand Bags Are Investments Too

When searching for the perfect investment piece, remember that secondhand bags can also be a worth and excellent choice. If you find a secondhand bag at a reasonable price and in very good condition, it could be one of the best investment opportunities you will find.

Tips When Buying a Hermes Bag

Posted on 27th March 2018 in Hermes

Image result for hermes bag

Now that you have a solid idea about how you want to purchase your first Hermes handbag and have considered the options of both new and pre-loved bags, you are ready to start shopping! However, you want to make sure you get value, a good quality handbag, and one that matches your wardrobe! Here are some tips to help you achieve just that:

Condition

Many women venture into the secondary market for value when purchasing a Hermes bag and the most important consideration when looking at pre-loved Hermes bags is the condition. At Baghunter, we implement a condition guide to help our clients evaluate the condition of each bag. Bags are rated as either pristine, excellent, very good, good, or fair depending on general wear and tear, scratches, leather and skin condition, and other factors. Using the condition guide in tandem with the pictures of the bag can help you understand the exact appearance of the bag before you make the purchase.

Color

Many first time buyers will play it safe and look at colors which match their whole wardrobe such as black, beige, gold, or brown. However, one of the traits which make Hermes handbags unique is the wide range of colors available, many of which are specific and exclusive to Hermes. Purchasing a black Birkin may be convenient for your wardrobe, however, a bright pink or red bag will stand out more and is less likely to found elsewhere. It will also hold its value for longer if you wish to upgrade in the future. Have a look at our color guide here.

Leather/Skin

It is so important to know your leathers when purchasing a Hermes bag. Each leather has its own unique characteristics and each leather requires different levels of maintenance. Some of the standard leathers such as Clemence and Togo are textured to protect them from scratches and general wear and tear. Exotic skins such as crocodile, alligator, lizard, snake, and ostrich are high maintenance, but also much more rewarding visually. You can find our leather and skin guide here.

Don’t Settle for Less

A common problem with first time buyers is that they just want a bag so badly they settle for the first one they see in their price range. The joy of holding your first Birkin or Kelly can become greatly diminished if you settle for less. To avoid this disappointment, utilize services such as our VIP Club which provides priority access to all of our consigned handbags as well as a personal shopping service to help you source any luxury bag in the world using our network of contacts.

Replica Prada is En Route

Posted on 23rd March 2018 in Replica Prada Handbags

Image result for Prada

I hope you joined us last time when we talked about Jennifer Garner’s Gucci bag, and we’re going to keep these designer handbags coming with another batch of great bags, Prada handbags. Jenn’s designer bag collection is pretty impressive, especially since she doesn’t seem like the type to care too much about high fashion. Her handbags are on the more conservative side, choosing to go with more simple and sophisticated designs over flashy and intricate. Either way, we at replicaguide love Prada bags and Jennifer’s are absolutely stunning!

I’m so sad to see this week end, especially since I had so much fun looking through photographs of this week’s featured celebrity, Katy Perry. Well, although we have to end it somewhere, I’m glad that we get to end the week with one of my favourite designers. The Prada brand has some of the most varied designer handbags in their collections. I happen to really love Prada bags, and I’m sure that Katy Perry agrees since I will be showing two replica handbags from her collection. I hope you had as much fun as I did this week, so let’s check out which Prada Katy Perry loves the most!

Replica Prada handbags are extremely chic, and Rihanna certainly nailed it with this outfit. She actually looks a lot more conservative than she usually does in this photograph, but I love her nonetheless. Prada designer handbags can pull any sophisticated look together, something that I’m sure RiRi is quite aware of. Too bad a Prada designer bag is too expensive for my lifestyle, however, I do have another solution for us girls who have to live on a budget.

Gucci Information Guide

Posted on 14th March 2018 in gucci handbags, replica gucci handbags

Gucci's historical bags

With luxurious craftsmanship and meticulous design, Italian-made Gucci purses reflect the house’s commitment to fine quality and opulence. Gucci handbags come in an array of styles, from satchels and shoulder bags to totes and backpacks, further accentuated by stunning Gucci wallets for women.

Look to Gucci handbags to elevate your cool quotient: Every design is decked out in fabulous ornamentation. Bamboo handles (a signature in many Gucci designs) add a rustic beauty to ladylike style. Top-handle bags offer versatility with a removable shoulder strap and working padlock and key. Need something dressy? Shift your attention to a brilliant GG shoulder bag with a chain strap; it brims with elegance and edge. The fashion house’s hallmarks are subtly imbued in all its designs. The signature web pattern, for instance, is often used as a backdrop to stunning layers of beaded and embroidered motifs.

How do you choose just one Gucci handbag? It’s nearly impossible. See for yourself at Neiman Marcus, and shop our extensive, irresistable selection of Gucci purses.

The house of Gucci as we know it today was established in 1921 by Guccio Gucci as a leather goods/luggage store in Florence, Italy. Many of Guccio’s Italian clients were local horse-riding aristocrats, and their demand for riding gear led Gucci to develop its unique Horsebit icon and many other symbols of equestrian origin. Mr. Gucci developed an understanding about how much the world of horses meant to the rich and privileged, and thus aspired to use equestrian imagery in many designs.

During Mussolini’s reign in Italy, expensive materials were hard to acquire so Gucci began using innovative materials on vintage Gucci handbags such as canvas, jute and hemp to create handbags and luggage. These materials are still used to create luxury handbags, luggage and clothing.

Tom Ford became Creative Director of Gucci in 1994. By bringing his uniquely glamorous visions to Gucci, sales increased by 90%. In 1999, Gucci entered into an alliance with Pinault-Printemps-Redoute (PPR – now known as Kering), transforming itself from a single brand company into a multi-brand luxury group. Tom Ford and Dominco De Sole (then President and CEO of Gucci) formed the “Gucci Group” under the subsidiary of Kering, who also owns primary shares of Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, and other luxury brands.
