Why Birkin Bags Are So Expensive | So Expensive

  • Am 8 Jun 2019 veröffentlicht
  • Birkin bags have become the ultimate status symbol, commanding resale prices as high as $500,000 for a single bag. Unless you have been chosen by Hermès, resale is likely the only option for obtaining a bag. Luxury resellers like The Real Real in New York have many options available online if you have several thousand dollars lying around.

    Why birkin bags are so expensive? Because there are ALWAYS some folk who are willing to spend big to have 'that thing that noone else has' . . . . . . and are willing to be gullible and manipulated for profit. . . . . . .The video does state 'limited supply' is a deliberate policy to create demand.

    It's expensive because Hermes is allegedly skinning animals alive. Animal cruelty!!! Has anyone seen the actual footage of crocodiles being skinned? Poor animals.
    I'm not gonna be surprised if one day, they will use human skin and sell it for millions of dollars per bag.

    Okay so my question is do they go hunting for these animals ((especially the rare kind which might go extinct)) kill them for pleasure of making these type of bags? Wow!!
    Also the price of a bag you can feed helpless children/people that actually are in need!!

    Im sorry, but birkin bags are ugly! And that man is pathetic! What a loser. So what, you bought an ugly extremely overpriced bag! Who gives! Coach bags are way better imo! They're way more sturdy and fashionable. And come in totes. I also love juicy bags too. I have one that fits everything! Even diapers and wipes! And i still have room for my stuff too.

    The upside to owning one of these ugly things .. They keep value or increase value
    The downside exceeds the up! You have to be considered important enough 🤣
    They killed animals to make them ! Big 👎🏼
    And truly there are people that would love to have a nice home. Decent vehicle. Traveling plans... And friends & family connections, any day of the week. Over some purse that most of us wouldn’t be able to carry in public. Because u may be knocked off! Or just buy a nice knock off 😂 Terrible humans ! Living to impress other humans

    Why doesn’t another entrepreneur do the exact same thing Hermès does and make bags that are just equally reputable and beautiful and eventually sought after?🤗 Why must you be important or rich enough to buy one when the cost of the bag should be enough.
