No matter how long I cover the accessories industry, it never fails to mystify me what it’s possible to buy with a couple mouse clicks after a few too many glasses of wine. Every season, we survey the most expensive new women’s Hermes bags outlet on offer in order to look for trends at the top tier of the market, and that’s just what we’ve done today.
This year, we found more uses of multiple exotic leathers on single designs than ever before, which makes sense–when every brand makes its most popular bag in an ultra-luxe crocodile version, what’s the next way that a designer seeks to distinguish his creations? There also seems to be something of a price ceiling for what third-party retailers are willing to carry; since we’ve been keeping track, those retailers have generally shied away from going over $40,000, and some of the market staples have held steady prices for years. (The Givenchy Antigona, for example, has been $35,900 in crocodile since at least 2016.)
There were also some notable contenders we had to leave out; Louis Vuitton will allow you to view full details for many of its exotics online, but you have to call or go to a boutique to actually purchase them, so they fell outside our bounds. We also avoided the resale market, where prices for sought-after bags (and Birkins especially) can soar–that tells us less about current trends in the market and more about how crazy people go for Hermes Outlet.
