3 myths about the Hermès Birkin

We don’t find it strange that there are so many misunderstandings about the Hermes Birkin. Not everybody is lucky enough to get one and therefore not everyone can speak from experience. The price of this bag is can be very high and there is a huge queue for different variants, so not everybody is that lucky. In order to create a little more clarity, we want to clear the following 3 myths about the Hermes Birkin for once and for all.

1. A Birkin costs at least 30,000 euros
Of course they exist: Birkins of around 30,000 euros. But these are the special models that are finished with crocodile leather. But there are also definitely Birkins available with a more friendly pricetag. We think this confusion has started because many celebrities are spotted while wearing a Birkin. But these are often the 30 or 35 cm variants and finished with normal leather. The price of these Birkins is around 12.500 euros. A Birkin keeps its value, so it's worth the investment, that’s for sure. Check out our offer and maybe you will score a beautiful Birkin for a good price.

2. If you want to buy a Birkin, you must be on the waiting list for years
If you have specific wishes or are looking for a specific edition, there is a chance that you have to wait a little longer to get the Birkin of your dreams.

But the Hermès Boutique is not the only place where you can find the Birkin of your dreams. Designer-Vintage.com also posts beautiful Birkins, weekly. Your Hermès Birkin has never been so close!
