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.

WHICH IS THE BEST HERMÈS BIRKIN SIZE?

Posted on 10th April 2018 in Hermes, Replica Hangbags

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.

Tips When Buying a Hermes Bag

Posted on 27th March 2018 in Hermes

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.

Looking for a Replica Hermes handbag?

Posted on 20th December 2017 in Hermes

we are spending two posts to talk about some of the celebs and their designer handbags from fashion week in both New York and Milan. I am completely buried in photographs of celebs and their designer handbags, I don’t know how I’m going to get through them all! Good thing looking at designer bags (like Hermes handbags) is something that I love to do, so it really doesn’t feel like work to me at all. In the last post we talked about Prada bags being carried by celebrities spotted at the New York and Milan fashion week, and today we will be doing something similar, but talking about Hermes bags instead! I get so excited when I write a post which features Hermes designer handbags; I really hope you have just as much fun reading them!

Check out Cara Delevigne (above) who is carrying a Replica Hermes handbag which might sound familiar! Mulberry handbags like to be named after fab people, and she is actually carrying her namesake bag, the Mulberry Cara Delevigne! (um, where’s mine, Mulberry!?) Next we have Louise Redknapp carrying one of my favourite Hermes bags, the Hermes Medor clutch (below) and we can see Kelly Osborne with her self-embellished Hermes Birkin bag. I don’t think I would do this to any of my Hermes handbags, but I guess Kelly doesn’t really need to watch her spending.

You know I like to end my ‘weeks of’ with a bang, and this series is no different. We were talking about art and designer bags all week, but you can’t have designer handbag art withoutReplica Hermes. Many artists have taken it upon themselves to use this designer bag in their art – some like to paint the bags themselves and some like to destroy them.

Can I Just Get A Replica Hermes Bag Instead?

Posted on 26th October 2017 in Hermes

Not only do designer brands sell all sorts of miscellaneous items, and the folks over at Hermes Paris are no different. Besides amazing Hermes handbags and accessories, I happened to stumble across a strange product that I just had to report to you. I mean, I love talking about designer bags and all (and I still probably will mention one or two in this post) but I am curious to see if anyone else will be baffeled by this item found on the Hermes website.

First things first, if you’re thinking that I’m holding back on you, and am not showing you all of the bags, well, you’re wrong. It seems that this season is lacking in bags for the designer collection. Also, you may notice the absence of a new Herms Birkin or a Kelly. I have to say that I am very surprised, and maybe, a little let down. I do, however, love the business style leather goods, and although I am disappointed, this is still a pretty solid collection.

Well, well well, what do we have here. It seems that another person of interest is also interested in the very popular crocodile Replica Hermes Bag (who isn’t!) The lady in question happens to be Tamara Ecclestone, who, if you don’t remember, happens to be that extremely rich socialite who bought the Spelling mansion about a year ago. This seems pretty irrelevant, however, but I would like to remind you that the last time (and many times before that) she was seen, her style resembled a hot mess! You should know that I am very happy that she has been doing her self right by displaying Hermes products on a worthy arm.

Hermes’ Stories

Posted on 14th October 2016 in Hermes

In the entire handbag market, Hermes reigns above all brands and that is because their handbags are truly the best. There are high-quality Hermes replica handbags on the market and these reviews here are meant to help you find the best knock off Hermes bag. Hermes replica handbags come in a variety of colors, variety, leather and hardware options and that’s why Hermes is the handbag holy grail.

Hermes is still one of the IT brands continuously making more of the IT bags. Anything that Hermes produces is always well received and fashion people go crazy and more to get some of the lizard, ostrich or alligator leather Hermes totes in all shades and sizes. Victoria Beckham is know to have picked up quite a collection of the gorgeous Hermes bags, some Birkin bags in various shades, and Kelly bags too. Just name it.

Hermes already had its presence in the States, when Kelly bag was manufactured (originally it was actually called Sac à dépêches) . Hermes had its ups and downs until it came under leadership of Jean-Louis Dumas-Hermes, who helped the brand to become one of the most distinguishable luxury goods companies. After 30 years of working for the brand, he now handed the very successful company to Patric Thomas, who is now CEO of the label. Right now Hermes has 14 product lines that include famous leather accessories and leather hand bags (such as Kelly bag or Birkin bag), men’s and women apparel, watches, jewelry, shoes, perfumes, even table ware items and other products.

Bold color combinations of Hermes bags replica and high heel shoes provide plenty of flexibility in your wardrobe. Classic color combinations look stylish on everyone, no matter the season. Neutral colors, like black, navy, white, brown, grey and khaki, put together create timeless and flattering looks but bold color combinations.

The thing I love most about it is actually its simplicity. And I believe that somehow people have come to the conclusion that a handbag doesn’t necessarily need to have a complicated design in order to catch the eye. Fine lines, high quality materials and a small touch of sophistication are enough for a handbag to transform your look into a work of art!

Hermes bags are extremely expensive and hard to get and you could think it’s close to impossible to find good replicas. But that’s not true; you can find high-end faux Hermes bags that are obviously made with a lot of care and devotement to copying the original as good as possible.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF HERMÈS

Posted on 23rd August 2016 in Hermes

blue Hermes Garden Party handbag

Since Hermes began as a harness workshop specializing in the finest horse harnesses and bridles in 1837, Hermès has transfixed the world with its supreme craftsmanship and elegant designs.  From examining and cutting leather to hand-stitching and melding hardware, highly trained artisans craft each Hermès piece.  Many of the Hermès craftsmen have studied at Paris’ Ecole Grégoire-Ferrandi, and are required to pass various exams prior to constructing their first Hermès handbag.

Throughout its history, the Hermès brand has been inspired by numerous style icons such as Princess Grace of Monaco and Jane Birkin; leading to the design of the most coveted handbags in the world – the Hermès Kelly and Birkin.

Collection Perfection – Replica Hermes Handbags

Posted on 7th August 2015 in Hermes

These Hermes bags are just a few in the long line of designer Hermes handbags that the Kardashians own. I wish I could wake up everyday and had the hard task of deciding which Hermes bag I would wear that day. I mean, wouldn’t we all? However this isn’t the case and I just don’t have that option.

Check out Karlie Kloss and Adriana Lima (above) with their Louis Vuitton handbags and Gucci handbags, respectively. These ladies are flawless! You can also look below this post to find Chrissy Teigan with her Hermas handbag, the Hermes Birkin bag. I love Hermes handbags and Chrissy looks absolutely stunning with hers! I honestly don’t know what’s more beautiful; the designer bags or the ladies. Perhaps it’s a tie!

I know that if I could afford an Hermes Birkin bag I would wear it all the time! I mean, why spend so much on a designer bag just to have it sit in your closet? Well, although I can’t buy these pieces, I can buy Hermes replica handbags instead. A replica Hermes bag, like this one is only a fraction of the price compared to the real thing, yet looks virtually identical! I love saving cash, so replica Hermes handbags are my favourite way to get designer fashion for less.
