The Birkin bag from Maison Hermès: a sure bet

Why crack on a Hermes bag? (And paying it cheaper through a deposit-sale?): The good tip

The Hermès House, historic on the Faubourg Saint Honore, (everyone knows this building surmounted by a promontory decorated with two crazy horses in a horse-drawn carriage), knew through time find a renewal in the creation of leather accessories, responding Not only to the modern postwar woman, but also to the ultra elitist side conferred by the requisite quality of clothing.

Thus we find, rather than articles of cavalry and luggage, luxury bags that well chosen icons have represented, even incarnate so much the object that they have left their name as imprint.

Below is the illustration of Grace Kelly, for which a practical, stylish, sturdy and durable bag has been designed, while being a symbol of the latest chic.

Let’s not forget also the famous bag Birkin, which experienced in the 90s a dazzling advent, carried by the controversial actress Jane Birkin.

The Hermès House is full of many models, each season and each trend highlighting one rather than the other.

A short explanatory synopsis will allow us to differentiate them, because it is not easy to do it at first glance, or if you are a novice in the field:

A new trend that stands out for two years, the return of the Constance bag, which evolved in 2 generations, the first one allowing only a short shoulder, the flap closing by a brass H by its central bar, the second with Longer shoulder strap, even more sports, with brass buckle or lacquered!

Let us not forget the variety of models of the House, sometimes more intimate and less “seen” …

What do the financiers say?

What to answer his spouse when you want to crack on a bag Hermes? We have the parade! What better than to legitimize, by a carefully chosen article of press, this purchase of envy? The magazine Elle USA brings us the answer on a plateau, on the verge of scientific demonstration! Here is an expert:

The Hermès Birkin handbag is the most exclusive purse in the world. And if you can somehow get your hands on one, it turns out it’s not a bad way to spend your money: A new study found that purchasing a Birkin is a less risky investment than buying gold or entering the stock market.

To be clear, the study was conducted by Baghunter, a website that sells luxury handbags, so it’s obviously not coming from an unbiased source. But it’s still a fascinating look at the Birkin’s constantly high demand in a world full of fickle shoppers.

Researchers compared the S&P 500, gold, and Birkin bags to see how their value changed over the past 35 years. The stock market had a return of a nominal average of 11.66 percent, with a real return average of 8.65 percent; gold had an average annual return of 1.9 percent, with a real return average of -1.5 percent. And those numbers assume that you don’t buy or sell within that 35-year time period.

Birkin bags, on the other hand, increased in value by 14.2 percent over the same period. Gold and stocks can be volatile, increasing and decreasing in value all the time, but the Birkin bag only became more and more valuable over the 35 years. The value really shot up in 2001, when it increased in value by 25 percent, but every year has shown an uptick. And just last year, a Birkin bag was sold at auction for a record price of $223,000.

Why is the bag so valuable? Because it’s scarce. There’s a years-long waiting list for a new Birkin, and that has led to a booming resale market. Fortune reports that you can get them repaired for life, which means you can pass them down to children and grandchildren—or you could just sell one on eBay for as much as six figures.

Plus, despite a sluggish economy over the last decade, the highest of the high end is doing just fine. “There is a difference between luxury and ultra-luxury,” Baghunter founder Evelyn Fox told Luxury Daily. “While the luxury market suffers during worse economic times, the ultra-luxury market is impervious to economic factors that can affect other industries, such as high-street retail and stock markets.”

No more reason to deprive yourself!

Yes, but at what cost?

Very good question, at the price of the second hand of course! But not anywhere! Indeed, the market was completely despoiled by the arrival of direct mail, and created an inflation of the normal resale of these products. After a few years a little ubuesques, where one could see any price of equal quality, the rating of the bag, to the last sales Drouot, returned to normal.

At DVL, we have always strived to keep our feet on the ground, by applying reasonable resale prices (count 5000/6000 a Birkin and 4000/5000 a Kelly last generation) with a strength of proposition rarely due to the Rarity of the product.

Be careful though because I talked about generations of products. A Vintage bag will not be the same in the same way, hence the importance of finding itself in the nomenclature of the Hermès House, which has developed a temporal signage.

Here is a table of correspondence, which will allow you to better situate yourself, and above all to better understand the market value of your future jewel:
