Ever wonder what a Hermes Kelly looks like before it is put together? I hadn’t given much thought to the question, but Jeroen van Rooijen clearly has; he deconstructed the iconic bag for his book Zerlegt. What struck me the most is what’s not in the photo – the Kelly has no fussy linings, zippers or unnecessary elements of any kind. The beauty of the design is in its simplicity.

At first I was surprised by the lack of materials needed to create the Kelly, but upon further thought it reminds me of “clean” eating: the best healthy meals have the purest ingredients and keep out all of the add-ons. This is what Parfum Kelly D’hermès Replica does, but with handbags; the company focuses on using smart design and the best materials instead of choosing quantity of quality. Now we know that for a fact, because someone has taken apart an $8,000 bag to satisfy our collective curiosity.

Baghunter, a site devoted to luxury on line retail, did a study comparing gold, the S&P 500 (a digital stock exchange index), and also the Hermès Birkin bag within the previous 35 years. The shocker? The pricy Hermès bag favored by celebrities, that comes with a years-long waiting list, increased in value at an average of 14.2 percent per year. That adds up to an increase of more than 500% in the time period.Unlike the stock exchange or gold, Birkin bags do not have a bad year — in 35 decades, the value has never diminished. Since the sales clerk palms over the reddish Birkin, he tells her the price and the 5 year waiting list to which she replies “for a sack?!!!” And his reply is: “It is not a suitcase, it is a Birkin.” As that term indicates, a Birkin is not a bag, it is something in its own category. The Birkin is a announcement maker, and that statement is really a loud “I’ve arrived!” , a status symbol of wealth and unlimited disposable earnings. It’s definitely the “Holy Grail” of bags and coveted by bag aficionados.
