SINCE its creation 35 years ago the value of the Hermes Birkin has gone up 500 per cent. So what makes it such a good investment?
Broadly speaking, the world is divided into savers and spenders. There are those who gen up on pension plans and ISAs and always have something “put by” and then there are those who will blow a month’s salary on a designer handbag.
The Hermès Birkin is the ultimate handbag in terms of design, craftsmanship, and desirability. Inspired by actress Jane Birkin, the Birkin handbag ranks alongside the Hermès Kelly Bagas the pinnacle of design in the Hermès Bag collection, taking up to 24 hours for a single artisan to create by hand. Only the most luxurious materials are used to complete Birkin handbags from high quality leather or exotic skins such as crocodile to premium hardware such as palladium and precision hand stitches. The result is an exquisite piece of art and the most sought-after handbag in the world.
