This Is the Most Expensive Louis Vuitton Handbag You'll Ever Lay Eyes On

Other Brands

Louis Vuitton rolled out its  Cruise collection, and with it, plenty of City Steamer bags to lust over.

That's the beige crocodile version, and it retails for $55,500, making it the most expensive LV handbag ever.

Don't get us wrong — we'd be hard-pressed to find something wrong with the impeccably crafted accessory. In fact, its neutral color and patent finish make it the perfect wear-every-day bag. But would you shell out the cash for this City Steamer? Or, better yet, add it to your holiday wish list? Read on to see Michelle Williams model the design in more standard colorways, then admire LV's priciest offering once more, and let us know if it's worth the splurge in the comments section!
Top 5 Investment Bags
Have you ever fallen in love with a bag, only to see it slip through your fingers? First you decided that it was too expensive and that you needed time to decide if you really must have it, then the next thing you know, it’s sold out! I pride myself on always finding the bags I love, no matter how high or low I have to search for them, and one of my newest solutions is eBay. Not only can you find limited edition pieces, you can often find them at better prices than they were originally, turning the high cost of investment bags from bank-breaking to bearable. Kelly and I personally curated this selection of must-haves, along with more than 20 other Snobby collections that cover everything from fashion to home dècor – follow them here! #FOLLOWITFINDIT
Celinè Python Mini Luggage Tote ($5,999): The Luggage tote is an “it” bag that we see everywhere, so to up the stakes, get it in python! Even though this is a neutral, it’ll never fail to excite.
Hermès Kelly ($19,888): This won’t be the last Hermès on the list. When it comes to investing in a lifetime love, the French icon is hard to beat. Indulge in Grace Kelly glam this winter with a decadent, rich red.
Chanel Classic Flap Fantasy Bag ($5,499): For the Snob who already has a basic flap bag, this Evening Garden version will be just what the name implies – a Fantasy. Turn fantasy into reality by picking up the ultra-embellished tweed for your collection!
Hermès Black Birkin ($19,995): This is the investment bag of all investment bags with a price tag to match, yet at a sizable 40 cm, you’ll get more than enough use out of it!

Louis Vuitton Black and White Graffiti Alma Bag ($1,725): This LV logo graffitied tote may not be a prim and proper investment, but it is most certainly one of the wisest. Artist Stephen Sprouse’s collab with the brand is truly iconic and its statement-making pieces are hard to find!

Hermès Herbag Zip

Other Brands

hermes_herbag-zip-blackAs far as I’m aware, what used to be the Herbag is now the Hermès Herbag Zip, a reworked bag that now only comes with one ‘body’. You see, the old Herbag used to be sold in set of two, where the top part of the bag (in leather where the flap and the handle is) could be interchanged with another ‘body’ in a different size.

The Herbag Zip, however, has done away with all that. And as the inclusion of the word zip in the name implies, they all now come with a zip pocket at the back, where oddly enough is also where you’ll find the padlock. There’s also the inclusion of a canvas zip pouch on the inside on the bag, which can be used together with the bag or removed and used separately on its own.

Available in 3 sizes, the 31, the 39 and Cabine, the measurements are as follows. The 31measures 31 cm by 25 cm, the 39 is 39 cm by 31 cm, and finally, the Cabine which is the largest and comes in at 52 cm by 36 cm.

hermes_herbag-zip-cassisPriced more affordably than its full leather siblings, the fact that it comes in many colours makes it even more popular, despite the fact that getting into the bag takes some getting used to. There is an upside to it, however. Having your wallet in the main compartment all ‘locked’ up means it will be almost impossible for pickpockets, while the zip pocket at the back let’s you pack in your smartphone, a card or two and other small essentials.

HERMES DOGON WALLET

Other Brands

Hermes-Dogon-Wallet-in-Flamingo-pink

A wallet is one of our most important accessories, I mean; we use it on daily basis. It’s kind-of an one-time purchase, then we want it to stick with us for a long time. Our personal items like credit card, bankcard, ID’s and money are inside; therefore we need one that’s protective and both stylish.

If you already own a designer bag like Chanel, Celine or Givenchy, you will want to choose a wallet that’s classic, so you can switch to different bags anytime you call for. And if there’s any luxury brand that makes classic things, we want to recommend no other than Hermes.

You see, you need to have at least one wallet that’s perfect, the price might be a little steep, but then we need to think long term. Five years from now, you can still sell your Hermes wallet, it holds value, if you don’t abuse it of course.

Presenting the Hermes Dogon Wallet, compact in different colors that we know, you will love. Its made from calfskin (material is durable and strong), closed by a leather flap and silver plated ‘Clou de Selle’ closure inside that reads: ‘Hermes Paris’. The interior is structured; you can find a zipped change purse, two credit card slots and two extra compartments.

The design looks quite easy and our eyes are pointing to the silver plated closure in the center. But easy should not fool us, because its ultimately the craftsmanship behind the wallet that we are hunting for. Measuring 9.5 x 13.8 cm.

Check out Kris Jenner’s Hermes bag collection with an estimated worth

Hermes

“I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet” SATC’s Carry Bradshaw once famously said and it seems like the Kardashian-Jenner family matriarch Kris has taken the words to heart. The bagaholics at Purseblog recently pulled out their calculators to estimate the net worth of Kris’ memorable Hermes bag collection. Featuring a mix of Birkins and Kellys in various sizes, her 16 exotic Hermes bags.

Puseblog’s list is not necessarily comprehensive, so she might have more of these gems hidden away. Additionally many of the bags might be bought from third party dealers or auctions and some might be gifts, so it’s not a given that she paid Hermes’ original price for all of them. Nonetheless her arsenal features an enviable diversity of picks. Check out a few of our favorites below with Purseblog’s estimations of their sale prices

Birkin Case Closed

Other Brands

After a PETA investigation at a crocodile farm in Texas, Jane Birkin demanded that Hermes remove her name from the house’s most iconic bag due to inhumane animal practices. Imagining a Birkin by any other name is almost impossible. Luckily, the Birkin-Hermes union may continue after all…

IMG_6418

Came across an article in ‘The Independent UK’ sitting at Heathrow that reports the news that Hermes Vows to Protect Welfare of Crocodiles (Sanguine Croc Birkin 35)

Hermes took swift action after the report and conducted a thorough investigation at the Texas farm. Hermes concluded that the unethical, slaughter process at this crocodile farm was an “isolated irregularity”. Nonetheless, Hermes stands firm on ceasing relations with this Texas supplier if unethical practices continue in the future. Last week, Hermes released a statement to the public that Jane Birkin “is satisfied with the measures taken by Hermes” and the Birkin bag will retain its namesake:

“Following the heartfelt emotion expressed by Jane Birkin and her request for explanation, Hermès in agreement with her reiterates its firm commitment in the ethical treatment of crocodiles in its partner farms.

Hermès reasserts its commitment to implement best practice in the farming of crocodiles, working with professional crocodile farmers and their attached local communities. This is in strictest compliance with international regulations.

In consultation with local regulatory organizations and associations, Hermès is resolved to evolve its current recommendations to support the development of best standards for the entire profession. In the United States, the document of reference is the Best Management Practices for Louisiana Alligator Forming. We demand that these Louisiana practices be the reference applied by all our suppliers in the U.S.A., Texas included.”

Although the Jane Birkin and Hermes spat has been resolved, Birkin’s public stance against animal cruelty has opened the door for a bigger conversation. The practices behind and the use of exotic leathers in general is still a highly controversial topic. Many activist groups continue to fight for more transparent measures in the fashion industry surrounding animal resources. However, as demonstrated by this recent Hermes incident, there are still many issues that need to be brought to the table before conditions and practices can be standardized.

Now the question goes back to you, was Hermes’ response enough? Do you feel any differently about exotic bags? Click here to join the conversation on BopTalk

How Much Should A Decent Replica Birkin Bag Cost?

Other Brands

Fake Hermes Birkin bags have always been some of the most sought-after replica bags and where there’s demand there’s also supply, which means that there are a lot of Hermes Birkin replica handbags on the market as well, with different price tags depending on their quality.

Replica Birkin Bag Front View

But this replica Birkin bag bought off AliExpress was a really pleasant surprise because it just proved that you don’t need to pay a lot for a decent replica bag! Wonder how much it cost? Here’s your answer!

It looks like some AliExpress sellers really know what they’re doing and that they can be trusted for certain brands. We’ve found one for Goyard, one for Celine and this time it’s a replica Birkin bag! The obvious advantage of buying replica bags off AliExpress.com is that they usually come with pretty cheap price tags. This could also be risky unless you go straight to a trustworthy seller.

Hermes knockoff bags come in all price ranges and even though the price should indicate the quality of the bag, it’s not always like this. My friend here has a really good point: you would expect this replica Birkin bag to have lots of flaws considering its price, but I think it will surprise you in a good way! So if you’re also looking for a fake Birkin bag on a budget you should take a look here. If you’re wondering how much do Birkin bags cost (the real ones), the answer is that they are crazy expensive!

“Hi Eva!

I just bought this replica Birkin 35 in Grey from a seller on AliExpress.The bag itself was $152 and the EMS shipping an extra 35. For this price I am rather suprised over the quality, look and feel of the bag. I have bought other replicas for around $300 and they have been far worse than this, The leather is very smoothe and nice to the touch, it is a little soft and slouchy on the sides. Like a Birkin will become over time but I like it. The stamps looks spot on and the stitching is very nice. I would love to hear your opinion on this.

I have bought other replicas on AliExpress, for example a Celiné Mini Luggage Tote and it was superb leather and almost spot on. I almost feel the same about this. I don’t mind carrying this bag around Stockolm and I think it will be difficult to see a difference from an authentic unless you look inside. It has all the stamps in the correct places on the straps as well.”

And this was my answer:

“As promised, here is my feedback. I do understand why you were so surprised by the quality of this replica bag given its low price. It’s true, I’ve seen more expensive replica Hermes bags that looked far worse than this.

Still, as you probably expected, this is not a perfect replica. I noticed that the stitching is sloppy especially on the two leather tabs at the back of the bag and the stamp is not that great either, the space in between the letters is not equal and the letters are unequal as well ( you can easily see how the “S” in Hermes is smaller than the other letters).

But if you say that the bag is actually made of real leather, then I will declare myself impressed! And in the end all that matters is that you love wearing your bag!

I would also like to see some photos of the interior of the bag if that’s okay with you – you made me curious: what is it about the inside that gives the bag away as a replica?

Also, can you share the name of the AliExpress seller?

Thank you for sending your review, I really appreciate it!”

Here is my friend’s answer:

“Yes I also noticed some flaws on the bag but that’s expected when I only paid $190 for it :) I have bought more expensive Birkins with far more and noticable flaws. The other day I actually walked passed the Hermés boutique in one of our department stores and when I passed by the entrence one of the SAs there popped her head outside and complimented me on my Birkin :)

Here are some pictures of the interior Eva. Thanks for your feedback! I love your blog and your feedback is amazing for us replica lovers.”

It’s true, looking at the interior of this fake Birkin bag it becomes clear that it’s a replica. But I’m not going to start criticizing it because it wouldn’t be fair and I’m one who appreciates honesty! My friend didn’t expect the bag to be perfect and it isn’t…but you can’t deny it’s good for the price! Sure, the details are not that spot on but to me it’s important that the bag was made of real leather because a bag that’s made of quality leather is a bag that lasts!

My friend is 100% right: there are many replica Hermes handbags sites that offer less quality for more money. When you buy a cheap replica Birkin bag at least you know from the start that the bag is going to have some flaws. But let’s face, it’s better to be pleasantly surprised than have high expectations and get disappointed by some shady replica site! So considering that a Hermes replica Birkin bag that cost $190 looks like this, it’s only normal to expect much more from a replica Hermes handbag that costs twice or even more! The Birkin bag cost depends not only on the quality but also on each site and seller.
