Hermes Crocodile Birkin

   Crocodile bags, belts and shoes have always been popular thanks to their special and almost frightening looks. But objects made from crocodile skin are very expensive, especially if you want a bag like the Hermes Crocodile Birkin. Hermes is one of the best accessory manufacturers in the world, so it’s no wonder their bags are the most sought-after by celebrities and the rich this season.


The Hermes Crocodile Birkin is available in both dark and light colors, and though it’s very expensive, it can be considered an investment by those who purchase it. The dark-colored models are very interesting, but if we’d have to choose we say the light-colored Hermes Crocodile Birkin like the gray one worn by Tamara Ecclestone is much better. Crocodile in unnatural colors is striking; the well-known pattern against unusual colors makes for a very surprising and modern appearance.


Besides being a very beautiful bag, the Hermes Crocodile Birkin is probably the most expensive and famous one too. Recently, a model of the Birkin in a powerful red color was auctioned for no less than $ 203,150. This was the Hermes Crocodile Birkin with White Gold and Diamonds and, like all Hermes bags, it’s jewelry and an investment. The person who bought the diamond-adorned Birkin preferred to remain anonymous, but nonetheless, Hermes is very popular among celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Francesca Eastwood, Clint Eastwood’s daughter who, recently, accidentally set fire to her $100,000 Hermes Crocodile Birkin.

According to designers and fashion lovers everywhere, the Hermes Crocodile Birkin is the Maybach of bags and purses, and this is obvious if we look at the prices alone. But the red Birkin we mentioned earlier isn’t the only famous Hermes bag. There was also a pink version with 14 carats of pave diamonds on the signature Birkin lock which was auctioned for some $ 140,000 and others who were sold for no less than $64,000.

The history behind the Crocodile Hermes bags proves we can admire or purchase them from a mere coincidence. In 1981, while on a plane, Hermes chief executive Jean-Louis Dumas was seated next to actress and singer Jane Birkin, whose straw bag had just fallen, spilling all the contents on the floor. Birkin complained that she couldn’t find a good leather weekend bag, and this inspired Dumas to create a black supple leather bag for her, based on an 1892 design. Since then, the Hermes Crocodile Birkin has been a symbol of wealth and fame, especially due to its high prices.
