The Limited Edition Croc
In 2006 Hermes made a limited edition series of Black Crocodile with splashes of colour on the handles and belt (mainly Orange and Fuchsia). Now and again we do get a used version coming on to the market but none recently is in the condition which is unused and Brand New in a Box condition.
The black gold.
Oil has traditionally been referred to as BLACK GOLD – till of course the price dropped from 120 to under 30 dollars per barrel. The price of So Black birkin bags however have continued to rise. There is even one on eBay listed below :
Unused never carried and bears no marks scratches debts inside or outside. Few last remaining ones in the world that’s never been used.

Probably the best colour in years
Gris Tourterelle in crocodile is rather different to ones you see in calf leather. Its light grey with greenish rather than creamy beige tones. Its even harder to photograph as the green sheen is only visible in daylight, a shade that the eye can see buy the camera lens finds it very difficult to photograph.
Argile (Fr) ~ Clay (English)
This in an absolutely rare find indeed. In 2012, Hermes brought in the very neutral earthen beige colour called Agile, available tourillon clemence, then grain d’H and finally tadelakt with the guilloche hardware.
In case you are wondering what ‘tourillon clemence’ or ‘tadelakt’ means in French, from what I understand, it means absolutely nothing. However it entertains the hell out of the French store assistance when the Japanese and the Chinese try to utter them. The leather being favoured by the French, I guess the idea is the foreigners won’t buy bags in leather they cannot pronounce. Well that’s my take on the silly names that Hermes comes up with now and again anyway. This French humour as the late Dumas would put it:
“Ingrained in the culture and DNA of Err-Messs”
The Argile version in clemence was short lived, with only one season and the colour – as with most sought after beautiful colours like 5P, (which agin is very typical of Hermes) was discontinued.
When we acquired this bag, we were reliably informed that Hermes searched the bowels of the Hermes store room in all four corners of the earth to find the last remaining Argile Birkin in the original tourillon clemence version in 2015 for a VVVVIP client. More likely though it was uncovered during last year’s stock take in London in an unopened box labelled “clay” and the person who bought it never got round to using it and now she has moved on to exotics…
The bag is Brand New in a Box, unused never carried from day 1.
We hope that this bag will find a great home new. Its certainly a colour like no other as Hermes veered on the wild LSD tripping psychedelic side with the introduction of lime and kiwi under Christophe Lemaire.

Calm down madam… Watch this video ….
25cm Hermes Kelly and Birkin Himalaya White
In the good old days, managers went to podium with their clients in mind, ordering what their clients demand in order to retain clients’ loyalty to the brand, and in places like London, the loyalty to the individual boutiques. London for example has the most number of Hermes boutiques in one city in Europe (Paris only has 3) and Hong Kong has 8! Therefore clienst of the store can ask for almost anything they desire… but that was the good old days.
Nowadays, the scene like a meat market in Paris, with more people queuing to catch the glimpse of the Hermes Sales Assistant than the number of people queuing to see the Mona Liza in the Louvre. The answer probably lies in the fact that one cannot “buy” the Mona Liza, these people ain’t gonna queue to see something you cannot buy.
I digress. The point I am trying to make is that now ANY birkins or kelly will sell. Not only will they sell, the new breed of buyers are happy to buy anything just to get a birkin or a kelly. My last trip to Paris I saw one guy hopelessly trying to fit into a (woman’s – unisex my ass) crocodile jumping boots, Cinderella he wasn’t, the shoes were too small as his calf were too big. The hope of an exotic birkin or kelly was ebbing away.
So with the quota limiting the number of exotic bags the Hermes store manager can order, coupled with the hordes of new moneyed clients who would buy anything with a kelly or birkin name attached to it, the result was obvious. It simply made no economic sense to use the quote of ONE himalaya to order the cheapest selling bag on the menu – i.e. the kelly 25. Birkin 35 Himalaya can fetch 3 times as much! Someone told me the Hermes in Munich received THREE 35cm Himalaya they did not even ask for at podium.
So where do my dinky Himalaya 25 and Kelly 25 come from? Japan. In Europe (not Paris) buying shoes, cashmeres scares and even crocodile belts can get you on the list for the coveted Himalaya, but you don’t get the dinky ones. In Japan however, they would expect you to buy the whole Spring Summer collection and then some, before they allow you a glimpse of the tiny birkin and himalaya.
Lucky us, we have one each to offer today. I wish I have photos show you.. but in the mean time here are the prices:
25cm Hermes Birkin HIMALAYA WHITE w PHW £65000
25cm Hermes Kelly WHITE w PHW £75000
Ostriches Don’t Fly
And judging by the time its taken me to move this one, if it does not move soon, I might just cook it and have it for supper.
However, I do refuse to believe this is possible… look at it, a fine example of Hermes colouring process and the superb treatment to ostrich skin that leaves the spots without the roughness of the 6pm shadow (speaking of which, get your hubby to try the hair removal cream instead of gillette for a really closer than close shave).
Anyway, hope this one hops out of my Salon Prive soon. New Price £19,500 and in Asian money, that not even 40k Sing!
The King of Collectables
The Ombre Birkin was last issued in 2010, and has not emerged since. It was selling 3 times retail back then, now I have seen it reached 10 times the price on the Hermes receipt. Ours is a fine example of a very lightly used 25cm Birkin.
An older 2007 version sold at Christies in June 2o15 for $687,500 Hong Kong Dollars (thats £62,129 UK pounds) we took it out of the Paris Auction to have it listed in the 2016 Hong Kong Auction.
Our Price : £45,000
The “Pigeon-Blood Ruby” Birkin
If 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.
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.
30cm Hermes Birkin
Bourgogne / Burgundy in Shiny Nilo Crocodile with GOLD hardware
Our Price £42,500
New Leather called Sombrero
Sombrero is Spanish for “hat”, more specifically that straw popularly worn in Mexico. Why Hermes called this new smooth swift like leather “sombrero” is anybody’s guess butI will put a mental note to ask the Director of Leather in Paris the next time I see him.
Today however we have this new kelly 25 in black sombrero leather with gold hardware. Hope one of you do warm to this new creation and be the first to be seen carrying one.
Here is what we have in this week..

The ultimate clutch
In some circles, if it isn’t the Hermes Kelly Cut Clutch – then it isn’t really a clutch worth clutching. Gris Tourterelle made a comeback in exotics with green earthen neutral tone, giving it chic and sophistication whether coupled with gold or silver hardware. A colour most elegant, it’s only coming once and not again for many years. So if you don’t already have one in your collection, it’s probably the last chance you’d get this decade.
Details : Hermes Kelly Cut Clutch in Gris Tourterelle Shiny Croc Porosus Gold Hardware £23,500 uk pounds
There are not that many new colours that really caught the market’s attention in 2015 and 2016 is looking equally disappointing. I mean I love blue atoll and blue paradise, but the ladies just didn’t warm to them. So we are back to the old classics, and here is what we have in the salon this week.
What? £22,500 for a Red Porosus Croc Birkin 35cm, GOLD HARDWARE, R stamp and its from LadyHermezz?!!
Yes, but its a fair price for the condition of the bag…. and of course it is used.
Colour is called Rouge H or Rouge Hermes, and its literally half what you would pay on retail for a bag that is barely 2 years old. So if like me many years ago, wanting to venture into the exclusive club of “Croc Birkin Owner”, get this bag. You simply won’t find one cheaper, no matter how bad the condition will be.

We have two stunning Hermes Kelly Pochette at an amazing price that you may have missed… so here they are again with new photos taken this morning.
1. Black Swift Leather with Gold Hardware £5,500*
This pochette clutch carries the the H date stamp (2004) and is presented as UNUSED. We have examined the pochette closer and can conclude that given there are no marks inside or outside the bag, no stretch signs on the handle and belts and also more importantly, no scratches on the hardware and loop, that the pochette is indeed unused, despite its age.
1. Gris Elephant Matte Alligator with Silver Hardware £14,500*
This pochette clutch carries the the L date stamp (2008) and is presented as UNUSED. The age of the bag and the colour means that this is probably the best value clutch on the market right now.
* Prices are in UK pounds
Now that’s a Christmas special…
We are reducing the price of this beautiful pre-owned bag that has been cleaned by Hermes and the hardware replaced. It’s M stamp with the rare brownish grey tones on the sides (as the others are generally grey). Please feel to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
A simple answer to that is “yes they are authentic”. But there is really no easy way to answer this question as anyone selling fake bag will tell you the same thing.
However we ask you to consider the fact that we have been trading for many years, with a lot of returning clients. Had we sold a single fake bag, I am quite sure you would have heard about it on Internet web forums. We certainly would not be as big and successful as we are today if we were in the business of peddling fake bags.
Consider also that we are UK based. Yes, Ladyhermezz is the trading name of a VAT registered company incorporated in the UK where we file accounts to the companies house each year.
We bank with Barclays and even authorised to process credit cards (VISA AMEX and MASTERCARD on site). We meet the bank manager quarterly as part of their monitoring process and money laundering checks. Its not easy to open a UK corporate bank account when you are dealing with handbags costing more than £10,000.
If we knowingly sell fake bags, not only will we get closed down – I would be languishing in prison for fraud by now and not writing this message.
We also source most of the bags ourselves and retain all proof of purchase from Hermes with a record of who we sold the bags to. In cases where we take in bags from consignors, we apply strict quality check to ensure all the bags we sell are authentic Hermes.
It’s easy to say our bags are of course authentic, but it’s impossible to prove years and years of 100% satisfaction of selling authentic bags if our bags are fake.
Ladyhermezz is a business that is based on trust and solid reputation. Without it, there is no business at all.
