So, you’ve decided you want to buy an Hermes bag. Will you buy an Hermes Birkin or an Hermes Kelly? What’s the difference? This blog post is designed to provide you with all the information you need to decide between a Birkin and a Kelly.
As a premier online reseller of authentic designer handbags who specializes in rare and limited edition pieces, Yoogi’s Closet has quite a list for handbags that you need to see to believe. These are some of fashion’s craziest designer purses that are so wild we had to share them again.
Handbags are the easiest way to make a statement – and these bags definitely say a lot. From limited edition milk cartons to runway releases, these bags made Yoogi (and the rest of us from the Closet) say WOW, and I hope you’ll appreciate the beauty and crafts(wo)manship behind these stunning creations.
The Hermes Birkin is the most sought after, impossible to find and collectible bag ever made. The standard Birkin design we know now and love was created jointly between Hermes CEO Jean-Louis Dumas and the actress Jane Birkin. Jane complained that her Kelly bag was not very practical and Jean-Louis Dumas suggested he come to their workshop and make her a custom bag. Jane’s Birkin bag was modified from an existing Hermes design, the Haut À Courroies (more on that later) to be shorter and smaller, but with handles for toting over the arm. Jane Birkin was gifted the first 40cm Birkin bag in 1984, and the rest is history.
