“A Birkin this rare doesn’t become available every day”
One of the rarest collectible handbags ever consigned by online luxury handbag retailer, Baghunter, is a rare Hermes Birkin, which was snapped up for a record $99,750 just days after being listed. The elephant gray and black Bi-Color Porosus Crocodile Special Order Hermes Birkin in size 35 was taken off the market almost as soon as it became available by a VIP client of the website, who wished to remain anonymous.
“A Birkin this rare doesn’t become available every day”, said Baghunter CEO, Evelyn Fox, “So we offered it to our VIP clients first, as is standard procedure, and within days received a call from a high profile VIP client.”
The huge sum paid for the stunning bag highlights the steep rise in value of Hermes Birkin bags as they become much more than just a fashion statement. In fact, the bag was listed on Baghunter in pristine condition, meaning it showed no signs of wear or defects and looked the same as it did when it was made. Even with the record figure paid for the Birkin, it will likely fetch an even greater sum when and if the buyer decides to sell.
