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.

    So the designer created the bags so they would be useful, but instead people buy them just to keep them in a case.

    There is no possible way to justify charging half a million dollars for a purse. At that point it's literally just a representation of status. Otherwise, there ain't nothing special about that bag.

    Leathercrafter here. Whilst I agree that the skill of the artisans deserves fair compensation, it sure wouldn't cost hundreds and thousands if it were made by someone as experienced but without the brand name. There are plenty of skilled craftspeople out there that deserve such recognition.

    I'm wondering if anyone here bought the bag as in investment rather than a status symbol? If its increasing in value by 14% every year then aren't these bags a better investment than a regular stock market portfolio?

    does anyone realize that they are so expensive because they’re made from those RARE animal skins. they killed an animal but are making 500k+ from a bag. One animal makes several bags. I’m definitely not agreeing with killing animals for fashion I’m just saying that’s why they’re expensive

    Let's all not be hypocrite here. Once in our lifetime we dreamt having this kind of bag. For sure if we can all afford it we will buy it. Let's not pretend to actually care about mother earth when you're a frequent flyer of planes and a social climber wannabes in Starbucks. Let's face it we're just furious because we can't afford it. Bitterness is just a taste. Don't embody it.
