Blue Jasmine, the movie to watch. The Birkin, the bag to buy.

 

bjasmine1

It was like an awakening after a long lapse of self induced “coma” from the reality of life. How did I miss this movie back in 2013/14. Cate Blanchett ( pronounced ‘blan-shet” not Blanket ?) was superb in it and won the coveted Oscar for Best Performing Actress, as well as the Golden Globe and the BAFTA, ahead of Dame Judi Dench and Meryl Streep.  Cate paid tribute to Judi who then at the age of 79 was still active and filming in India and still active today at 83!

In Blue Jasmine, Cate played a formerly rich glamorous NYC socialite who had to move in with her working class sister when she lost everything. A very Woody Allen movie that will make you realise – even for a very short moment, the importance of the people that you have around you, and appreciate that you are important to them too.

imageWhat I should also not fail to mention is that the headlines for the movie read…  Hermès Bag From ‘Blue Jasmine’ Cost More Than The Film’s Entire Costume Budget

Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar, Cate said that the Hermes bag she carried was more than the $35,000 allotted to the Costume Designer Suzy Benzinger, therefore it was actually borrowed from Suzy’s personal collection for the movie!  I doubt Suzy was aware at the time that her bag was going to be thrown on the sidewalk again and again and again… oooops.

“ and there I was, throwing it on the sidewalk again and again. I felt her blood pressure go up every time it hit the pavement. The waiting list for those bags is decades. You’re in wheelchairs before they arrive,” Blanchett says.

So in 2018, the focus and trend is going towards the Birkin. The Kelly 20 sales have slowed down somewhat, and as the stores focused on the smaller bags, size 35, is beginning to be harder and harder to find. The premium is still far less than the size 30’s but its slowly catching up. Towards the end of last year, demands were for the earthen colours like gold, camel greys and toupes.  For a list of what we have, please visit us at LadyHermezz.Net  we will be revising the prices DOWNWARDS of the bags at this weekend, so do email me if there is a bag that you are particularly interested in.

 

PS: On a private note,  thank you for the support and encouragement, not least the patience, for the time I have been away. I would not be here today if it were not for each and every one of you.

The Horse Shoe Stamp Birkin

It appears everyone you know is able to order a custom birkin, not only that, they get 3 or 4 or even one every month. They seem to get photos sent to them by the SA for all the new colours and limited edition item and with a clink clink here and click click there, they can secure one from the comforts of their iPhone as they sit opposite you sipping latte at Starbucks. Everyone that is, apart from YOU… the world can be cruel at times. I know the feeling, been there myself.

If you are like me, with better things to do than spending my weekends trying to make polite conversation with the Hermes staff, let someone else do the dirty work. Life is just too short.

We have a few customs made Hermes Birkins and Kellys coming in, and I start with the :

25cm Hermes Birkin Bourgogne / Burgundy Croc GHW £42,5000

The “Pigeon-Blood Ruby” Birkin

B25 Bourgogne 95If you know your rubies, then you probably know that pigeon blood ruby stone is worth millions of dollars. I won’t say that this bag would be worth its weigh in rubies pigeon blood or otherwise, but its certainly a big hit in 2015/16 autumn winter season. A colour that not only appeal to the Western, European and Eastern Europeans, its also a huge hit in the Middle East, and the Far East.

B25 Bourgogne 99

Burgundy is a colour that would do as well in Japan as it would in Copenhagen, and the only other colour that does this is black. Paired with yellow gold hardware, though equal chic with silver hardware, the bag transcends generations. Does not look old for the young and trendy, does not look young for the more mature. What can I say, an overall winner. Possibly replaces Bordeaux for the crown as the best red in 2016.

Black Epsom Leather Gold Hardware 30cm Birkin £12,800

The Black Beauty that’s Most Wanted

B30 Black GHW 31 copy

Why are Black Hermes Birkin bags with Gold Hardware always in demand? The answer is quite simple, anyone who can afford one would want one – despite the price tag, there is lot of you out there… and anyone who has one will end up using it so much that after 2 or 3 years, you will need to replace it with a new one.

And finally, the truth and simple fact remains, once you have a Birkin, why on earth would you want to carry anything else? To carry a Prada and leave your Birkin at home just do not make sense to me.

30cm Hermes Birkin HIMALAYA with Silver Hardware

The Ultimate Croc Birkin

B30 Himalaya  819
The Himalaya Birkin has made its appearence again in 2014 as the shipment of the bag hit the stores in  August and September, mainly based from the order placed back in 2011 summer podium – the last year the bag was offered at podium before it was reintroduced at the summer podium in 2014. Needless to say, we got many calls from the many contacts that we have in the market offering us this most coveted bags. I remember starting September with 6 of these bags to offer, none needed listing on the website.
B30 Himalaya  815
But as we gear up towards Christmas, the demand for this bag will go sky high. Partly the reason why, despite the number of Himalaya available on the market today, most resellers are waiting for the November /December rush. So I thought I would tease the market with this one that came in September….

Special Order 30cm Hermes Birkin Blue Electric with Green Lining ~SOLD~

Special Order Blue Electric

B30 Blue Electric HSS 05

The message that store managers in Hermes been giving out this year is that special orders are no longer offered and only invited on exceptionally rare circumstances – like when you have reached the million dollar spend in the shop. This is in line with Hermes moving away from the multicoloured bags much favoured by the previous creative director. The blue electric we have today is therefore probably be last of its kind for a whiled. With it being such a hot colour this season, I am sure this bag will go to a good home within a short period of time.

30cm Hermes Birkin HIMALAYA GRIS CENDRE ~SOLD~

The Rare and Most Desired

B30 Himalaya Gris11

Gris Cendre, or Cinder Grey Himalaya introduced back in 2010 have not been offered at the podium since 2012, the same time the White Himalaya was discontinued. In 2014 summer podium (for autumn winter 2014/15 collection) the White Himalaya came back on the menu with very strict quota of only one per boutique / region. The Gris Cendre however was not included in the list. Based on the back order that was placed as far back as 2010 -where majority of the order was cancelled, a handful made it through the stores in 2014 and early 2015. These are deemed to be – but those in the know – the last of the Grey Himalaya to be produced by Hermes.

B30 Himalaya Gris12

For this reason, the Gris Cendre Himalaya is considered the rarest and the most desired of all bags today and we are proud to say that we are one of the very few to be able to offer this bag for sale. The price we put on this bag reflects the the desirability of this bag.

Ok, its now pushing into March. In November you waited for Christmas, Christmas came and went, the Birkin did not appear. January came, the price went up…. hmm maybe Valentine’s Day perhaps? Nope, just a bunch of (expensive) chocolates, fancy dinner, a new dish washer… no Birkin. Pushing your luck that Chinese tradition will prevail that Chap Goh Mei will eventually bear fruit? But is was not to be.

SOLD 30cm Hermes Birkin Mushroom/Mousse with Silver Hardware £16,000

Barely a year old birdie

The only other company that comes up with this many colours is DULUX and they make paint. Today we introduce another new colour only offered in ostrich called Mousse.

B30 Used Ostrich Mouse PHW58

I have actually not seen this colour in person before this, seen it in photos before, heard about it and even had it in my inventory at some point but I never for to see one until a used version came in. Bought in April 2015, it carries the T stamp.

Mousse is hard colour to describe, on photo it appears between etoupe and gris tourterelle. I would say that is greyish brown with green tones, however on the camera, the green tone is very hard to capture. I have captured the photo of the bag as it would be seen in daylight and indoors. Certainly a very modern colour that is at the same time so neutral, it would go with anything.

The condition of the bag. Its been lovingly loved and cherished for the last 6 months, but now the pink is on its way and rather than languishing unused at the back of an 800 sq ft of walk in closet, the previous owner would love to see this bag loved by someone else.

B30 Used Ostrich Mouse PHW66

The handles has darken slightly and there are minor scuffs on the corners, and the price of the bag reflects this. I believe the bag can be restored at Hermes for a very small charge, the inside is clean and we feel that this bag presents excellent value to anyone looking to add this to their collection. Hermes can also change the handles as the colour is still being offered at podium, but I would just recommend what I and other mere mortals do – use a twillie to dress the birkin each week.
