IF YOU HAVE AN HERMÈS BIRKIN, HOW DID YOU GET IT?

Categories:Other Brands

[Editor’s Note: This post generated the most fascinating comments on PurseBlog in 2015 (and was still generating them as recently as Thanksgiving, five months after its original publication), and we wanted to give you guys a chance to catch up and chime in with your own stories while we finish up the holidays and spend a little bit more time with our loved ones. If you haven’t read through the comments, we really recommend it–some of them are incredibly interesting and insightful about the process of acquiring the world’s most sought-after handbag.]

For some reason, it seems like the entirety of the fashion Internet has been talking about how to buy a Birkin lately. Lauren Sherman wrote about the bag’s enduring appeal for Bloomberg, Megs mentioned how she got hers in an interview with Racked and this one Harper’s Bazaar story on the process keeps tumbling down my Facebook newsfeed. If I’ve learned anything in my time at PurseBlog, though, it’s that there’s no One True Way to get a Birkin.

Tales of wait lists and long-term relationship-building with Hermès boutique employees abound, but Megs got her black Birkin by going into a store where she had no prior purchase history and asking nicely. Authentic Birkins are bought and sold every day on eBay, buyers are more than willing to scoop them up at traditional auctions like Heritage or Christie’s and sites like Moda Operandiregularly host short-term sales of expertly sourced Birkins. In some ways, getting a Birkin now is easier than ever, as long as you’re not a stickler about buying it directly from the brand. (And, in many cases, as long as you’re not picky about paying a markup for the immediate gratification.)

There are, of course, many people who become trusted Hermès clients and eventually get offered the bag of their dreams; our PurseForum is filled with stories about magical calls from Hermès boutiques, many out of the blue. The purchase of almost any bag has a story, and when the particular bag starts at $10,000 and only goes up from there, the stories are often well worth a listen. Today, we’d like to hear yours. Did you stick with the traditional route, get lucky or seek out alternative avenues?

Hermès Debuts Minimalist Birkin

Categories:Other Brands

Hermes-Minimalist-Sellier-40-Birkin

There are few sacred things in handbag design, but among them is the Hermès Birkin. When Hermès is feeling creative, the brand generally looks to the Kelly to make tweaks and create new versions–we documented nearly a dozen in our guide to Hermès bag styles, and that doesn’t include limited editions. There are far fewer Birkin styles, but now, there’s another to add to the list: the pared-down Hermès Sellier Birkin 40.

According to T Magazine, Hermès leather design director Couli Jobert set out to de-clutter the Birkin down to its essential look, which involved losing the lock and key, hiding the stitching, smoothing the edges and removing the interior lining. The resulting 40cm bag comes only in black cowhide (T didn’t specify the Hermès leather name) with Palladium hardware, and it’ll set you back $14,900.

The timing of this Birkin is perfect; although interest in Hermès bags is seemingly unending, minimalism is very much en vogue for day bags, and any design, even a Birkin, runs the risk of feeling stale as trends ebb and flow. Breaking the Birkin down to its simplest state not only gives aficionados something to chatter about and clamor for, but it reminds all of us that Hermès is successful because the brand is built on a foundation of exceptional design and materials. Most brands’ bags would not fare as well when stripped down to their bones, but the Birkin’s magic endures.

How To Ruin A Good Hermes Birkin Replica Bag!

Categories:Other Brands

It’s true that you can find a Hermes Birkin replica bag in almost any hue, but even so, if you want your replica Hermes bag to look authentic, make sure that particular color you want actually exists. The more colors, the merrier, but make sure you don’t fall into this trap.

But it’s not only the color that makes or breaks a fake Birkin bag. When it comes to Hermes, it’s all about the subtle details that show just how good that replica really is. And after reading this Okokbagbag.com review you’re going to understand what I’m talking about.

It’s been a while since I’ve heard about a new replica Hermes purses site and then I received this Okokbagbag.com review. At first glance this Hermes Birkin replica bag looks better than most replicas. But then when you get to details that take a replica close to perfection, this bag becomes a big disappointment.

Let’s read my friend’s email and after that I’ll share my thoughts with you:

Hey, Eva!

I wrote this review with many mixed feelings… All the ordering process went pretty smoothly. I sent them a few emails before I actually placed the order because I was looking for a specific shade of blue. I even sent them pics with it. They said they have that color, but it’s not on the site. Even though it usually took them a day or two to answer, I was satisfied by their customer service because at least I got my answers.

So anyway, I finally decided to buy it, I placed the order, I paid by credit card and then I received the tracking #. It took 14 days for my bag to arrive, which I don’t think it’s too long considering it comes all the way from China.

At first I was in awe! It’s wasn’t the exact hue I requested but still, it was an amazing blue color! The stitching looks really good IMO and so does the leather. Well, almost too good to be true! I got so excited that at first I didn’t even notice that the logo was missing! And no sign of hardware engraving either! I couldn’t stop thinking why this happened to me…

It made me really sad, but I had to return it. I had to pay for the return shipping but at least I got my money back. I wrote them about this asking if all their Birkins miss logo and engravings but it’s been almost 2 weeks and they haven’t answered. I guess I’m not the only one this happened to.

Obviously, I’m not ordering anything from them again. I’m still mourning that beautiful blue color though :(

What a shame! This Hermes Birkin replica bag had so much potential! But without the logo, the engravings and the stamping, this looks just like a bag that imitates a Birkin. Way to ruin a Hermes replica!

Girls, if you want to make sure your Hermes Birkin replica bag is good, it’s essential to check these things:

1. The logo – sure, the logo is not perfect on most knockoff Hermes handbags. Still, make sure it reads “Hermes Paris Made in France”, that the font is right and that the letters are crisp and clear. The color of the stamp should match the color of the hardware.
2. The engravings on the clasp and on the padlock should be thin and delicate. It takes a really soft touch to make them right and that’s why it’s one of the things that separates a good replica Hermes Birkin from a poorer one. The pull piece of the zipper should be engraved too.
3. Talking about the padlock, where is it? This is another piece in the puzzle that’s missing.
4. I.D. check – Every Birkin should feature an I.D. code on the reverse side of the leather strap in the right. This stamp indicates two things: the artisan’s ID and a letter inside a square that indicates the year the bag was made. For example, “M” is 2009, “N” is 2010 and so on.

The devil is in the details and this is even more obvious when it comes to replica Hermes handbags! You can’t expect everything to be perfect, but at least you know what you should look for so that you choose the best fake Birkin bag!
