Collection of Hermès Bags Suitable for Investment
Hermès Birkin bags are a better investment than gold. This is why Herms is one of the most sought-after luxury brands, and its bags are also a status symbol. Here are some iconic Hermès bags to invest in.
Birkin, one of the very exclusive Hermès bags. A coveted elegant handbag, the Birkin is the result of a chance meeting between Jean-Louis Dumas and singer-actress Jane Birkin. The two were on a Paris to London flight together, and it was their chat that led Dumas to design the bag. The woman, being a new mother at the time, cringed at the designer for not being able to come up with a bag that could fit everything.
This led to Dumas coming up with a handbag design, at once, that was very functional and had a special space for toddler bottles. The bag in question is a favorite of celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Heart Evangelista, Jennifer Lopez and Drake, who are said to have had more than one Birkin.
Hermès stores only have a few bags twice a year. Moreover, the model, color and size were never known in advance. That is, if someone sees a certain size Birkin in a certain color, they can’t just go to the Hermès boutique to buy it; creating a bag takes time. Moreover, these bags are not sold online, on the official Herms website. This hit the Birkin resale market. While new bags are not easy to come by, leftover bags can be easily purchased online. Sometimes, good quality vintage bags are also available, but care must be taken to find an authentic one.
One of the most iconic bags made by Robert Dumas is the Hermès Kelly. This trapezoidal handbag for women features 2 triangular gussets, 2 side straps, handles and cut-out closure. The same bag is the brand’s window to the modern world. It is said that in the 1950s, Grace Kelly was seen carrying the bag. The Hollywood superstar, turned Monaco girl, was photographed holding a bag over her stomach, in an attempt to hide her baby bump. It was during this time that handbags became popular and became what we know today.
However, just before the event, it is pronounced Sac-à- Dépêches. This bag is also a valuable item that adorns the wardrobe of many celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Jennifer Lopez. Moreover, this bag became a cameo in the popular K-drama Crash Landing On You. Yoon Se-ri (Son Ye-jin) carries an unusual Kelly backpack in one of the scenes.
Constance is another Hermès favorite bag, on a par with the Kelly and the Birkin. This is an over-the-shoulder bag that is modern, simple and very functional. The design is attractive with a simple H buckle as a safety lock. This bag was designed by Catherine Chaillet in 1967, when she was with her daughter again. The name of the bag is also taken from the girl’s name, Constance. This timeless masterpiece comes in 4 sizes—the classic Constance 24 along with its mini and micro types.
The Evelyne bag was first created in 1978 for riders to use when looking after their horses. The bag has no layout and features a wide shoulder strap, but instead has a thick H logo with a hole on it. These holes are made so that air can pass through the bag, so that grooming equipment such as combs can dry easily. Today’s sporty bag is considered a must-have elegant accessory. There are 4 generations of bags. Generation I lacked outside pockets and adjustable straps. Generation II only has an outer pocket. Generation III demonstrated both, making it a very instant one.
5. Hautà Courroies( HAC)
Hautà Courroies ( HAC) was the first bag made by the brand, and it would not be wrong to say that this bag is also one of Hermès’ most stylish bags. Made for carrying and protecting saddlery and riding boots, this bag is larger in size and width than most. It makes the driver’s life easy, just like it was before the car boom.
Not only instant, this charming work also shows a suave touch. The bag held by the rope initially had no name. So, it’s just pronounced Hautà Courroies, which when translated into English means big (Haut) and rope (courroies). This leather bag is the epitome of Hermès power and saddlery.
This legendary bag is made in 2 dimensions. Dimension 40 is located between a handbag and travel bag, but dimension 50 is the best travel bag. Many celebrities, including Travis Scott, Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham, are often seen carrying Haut Courroies.
Bolide’s history begins in 1923, and is made with the memories of world travelers. This bag has a zipper, which Émile Hermès brought back from America, and he has dominance over it. The zipper closure on the designer bag allows it to be tucked away in the trunk care-free when traveling. Not only that, the zipper makes this Herms bag have a different round corner shape. Bolide bags are available in 5 sizes, namely Bolide Mini, Bolide 27, Bolide 31, Bolide 35 and Bolide 45, which are travel sizes.
Picotin in French refers to the amount of feed fed to a horse at one time. This is the inspiration behind this bag—a horse feed bag. This classic bucket bag never goes out of style thanks to its minimalistic yet functional design. Given that functionality is one of Hermès’ top priorities when it comes to handbags, the Picotin bag allows the user to fit everything inside. The lock closure adds an eye-catching aesthetic, making it the perfect designer bag.
