What are the classic styles of Hermes bags, and how much is the price of hermes bags?

Most people buy bags, they must start with classic models.If you ask why, you will probably say that these styles are more valuable, or the classic models are more valuable for investment.

In terms of preservation of value and return on investment, Hermès is definitely the best performer among all brands! This is also known to anyone who knows a little about luxury brands, then

What are the classic models of Hermès bags?

First of all, it should be the HERMES Birkin. You may not think that in 1984, when Birkin was born, the regular leather Birkin started at only $2,000. Although it was not cheap at the time, compared with the current price of more than 10,000 US dollars, it is really much lower!

Hermes Birkin has three sizes of 25cm\30cm\35cm

  1. Regarding the size, I have always liked the 35 size. The first is very practical. There is no pressure to install the computer/documents when I work. It can also be used as a mommy bag when I take my baby out (but it is really heavy). Snacks are all put down. Second, 35size personally feels very stylish, sometimes packed full, maybe not so exquisite, but it’s casual and charming. The first birkin I started in my life was the Black Silver 35, which is basically a must-have for my meeting, magnificent and capable. BTW, the big bag is thin.

2. 30 is a relatively moderate size, and it is also more practical. Generally, a smaller computer can be put down, and it can also be used for commuting, but overall there is no 35 which is more professional. The main height of Po is 162,98 kg, and most of my friends think that my 30 size looks the most coordinated. Po master also has a denim blue 30, which was not taken in another home.

3. 25 has been very popular in the past two years. It is more difficult to get goods in many stores. It is still suitable to go out and go shopping. The relatively large-sized bag is also much lighter, and the overall appearance is more delicate, but to be honest, On the contrary, I think that the taller girls look better with small bags, the thinner girls look more stylish with large bags.

Hermes birkin is generally used togo, swift, and epsom. There are also some materials such as crocodile skin, ostrich skin, lizard skin, and python skin.

Although the leather of Swift is very delicate, it is really too soft and too soft, but 25 seems to be more of this leather, when I bought 25 twice, sa told me that there is only this kind of leather , fortunately the size is small, it will not look very soft couch. Togo is the most classic Hermes leather. It has no effect and is more durable. The 30 elephant gray of Po is togo. It has been used for 4 years, and the condition is still very good. Epsom leather is very stiff. Both of Po’s 35 are epsoms. They will not be soft for such a large size, but I personally think that epsom is more beautiful when used on Kelly, but birkin is a little more casual and soft. Epsom leather is said to be the most resistant, but I think it is easy to scratch

Color

You must have noticed that most of my bags are relatively low-key and elegant colors. Black, white, gold, and gray are basically my favorites. Sometimes I see many girls who use bright colored birkins are also very youthful, but one is that they often need to work, and the other is their personal style of dressing, and they prefer to buy a variety of low-key colors. If you want a bright one, White bags can also play a very good effect. My two 25s are milkshake white and midnight blue. Personally, they are both very advanced colors. They are very close to the white and black, but they are more special. In addition, elephant gray is indeed very versatile, and gold is very classic. So Ya Se still wants to collect a tin ash and a toffee gold. If you have the opportunity, I also want to try to receive a bright Q5 small bag.

Hermes Kelly (HERMES Kelly)

After talking about Birkin, you will definitely talk about another super classic Kelly from Hermès! In fact, Kelly was released 30 years before Birkin!

When it first became popular in the 1950s, an ordinary leather Kelly, the lowest price was only 900 US dollars, still a “thousand yuan package.”

After 2014, the Kelly of the same style can start at more than US$9,000. It doesn’t matter if you want to see this bag, you need to purchase other items at the price (commonly known as distribution). The price is 50 years. It has risen by nearly 1000%! !

Size and classification

Kelly originally had three sizes of 28cm, 32cm, and 35cm. In 1968, another 25cm size was added. In 1980, a 40cm extra-large size was added. Nowadays, the Kelly bag that you can buy in the Hermès store has the following 7 different sizes.

The smallest 19cm is the super mini Kelly II Sellier Mini that just came back last year. From 25cm to 40cm are 5 relatively common sizes. The largest 50cm is Kelly Voyage, which is more suitable for travel bags.

Kelly Voyage is suitable for travel. It is super big. Both Beckham and Kim Kardashian wore this bag.

In fact, regardless of size, Hermes Kelly can be divided into two categories, the more rigid Kelly Sellier and the softer Kelly Retourne. The 19cm mini model is only hard, while the 50cm Kelly Voyage is only soft.

Among all Hermes Kelly, the two most popular ones are the two in the middle of the picture below: the soft elephant gray silver buckle, and the hard black gold buckle. If you see a leather lace pattern on the side of a Kelly, it is Ghillies Kelly, which is a special style.

In addition to the 7 sizes listed above, there are actually many different styles of Kelly bags, including the Hermes Kelly Mini Mini 15cm below and the Hermes Kelly 20cm with a unique handle ratio. Some sizes are no longer in production, so if you want to start, you can only go to the Vintage store to try your luck.

Hermes Stewardess Bag (HERMES Constance)

Constance is a style designed in 1969 and named after the designer’s daughter. It was loved by Mrs. Kennedy. It is a shoulder bag that can be held in any occasion. Its shoulder strap length can be adjusted in two stages, and the hardware at the opening and closing parts is the “H” logo of Hermès. The color is changeable and the bright line is relatively more. Some advanced leathers are also used on the leather. The output is low, which is the most difficult bag in the Hermès family.

From the overall appearance, Constance is very similar to CELINE’s classic box. Constance’s simple design, retro style box style is very classic. She is divided into two models: one is more square, with regular size (Constance 18) and mini size (Constance 14); the other is longer, (Constance 23). Take a look at the size comparison:

Constance 14: W14 x H10 x D3 cm

Constance 18: W18 x H15 x D4 cm

Constance 23: W23 x H17 x D5 cm

I bought the peach powder gold buckle 24 last year, and I feel that it is still slightly too big for the height of 162. Since then, I have become more determined to buy only small bags
