$298,000 Hermès Birkin Shatters World Record for Most Expensive Handbag Sale

Categories:Other Brands

It was just last June that we reported to you about a new high in handbag resale prices: Christie’s Hong Kong had just sold a pink crocodile Hermès Birkin for a record high of $221,000. That record didn’t even make its first anniversary; earlier this week, Privé Porter announced it had broken that record with a $298,000 Birkin of its own, and it’s one that will look familiar to PurseBlog readers.

Privé Porter is a resale business that focuses on unused (but previously owned) Birkins and operates primarily via Instagram, where it’s able to reach a worldwide audience of shoppers looking to add rare handbags to their collections. In November, Privé Porter hosted a pop-up Birkin yacht at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, and Megs and Vlad were among the attendees who got to peruse the collectible Birkins. The new record-breaker was among the bags in the selection, and it appears in our photos of the event, including the one above.

The bag is a 35cm Birkin in Braise shiny Porosus crocodile, finished with 18-karat white gold encrusted with pavé diamonds, at a total weight of more than ten carats. It was manufactured in 2008 and sold to a US buyer via the brand’s New York City flagship on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Privé Porter acquired the unused bag from the original owner in 2015, and it was purchased from the company by a Los Angeles-based buyer who chose to remain anonymous. The Christie’s bag can still technically claim the title of the most expensive handbag sold at auction; this Birkin sold at a named price with no bidding.

We spoke to Privé Porter co-found and Managing Director Jeffrey Berk, who had this to say of the bag and its sourcing process: “Even with the sheer volume of Birkins we’re offered daily, we are very careful about the bags we actually buy. Is the color special? When was it produced? How rare is it? But we knew that when we had the opportunity to acquire this Braise Croc, we’d stumbled upon one of the special Birkins, the way a horse trainer may see a newborn and know that’s a Triple Crown winner someday. We hoped to sell it to someone who appreciated the bag as much as we do, and from what we understand, the buyer is a very sophisticated collector who genuinely understands how special and rare this bag is. Which is reflected in their willingness to pay the record price.”

Hermès reds and pinks are particularly sought-after shades for collectors; a Rouge H (which is a bit deeper than braise) Birkin set a sales record of over $203,000 back in 2011 via Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, and the most recent record holder from Christie’s in Hong Kong was bright pink. Recently, handbag resellers have been trying to convince the buying public that Birkins are a better investment than stocks or gold bars, and if you’ve got a red or pink croc Birkin at the ready, that just might be true.

Categories:Other Brands

Today I want to tell you all about Lady Dior replica handbags and how you can spot a fake Lady Dior purse from an authentic bag. I consider that this is a very essential piece of information for my readers because by the day, replica manufacturers are getting better and better at making genuine looking Dior purses. Not long ago, spotting a fake was super easy, but these days replica bags are mirror images of the authentic products and you got to be an expert to know how to identify an imitation…or to simply read the below guide for spotting a Lady Dior replica handbag.

how to spot a fake lady diorThere are so many people online who sell fake Lady Dior Bags for a couple thousand dollars claiming that these are the real thing. Most often, shopper fall for it and end up paying a small fortune for a product that isn’t worth more than $100. This happens because buyers do not know how to recognize a Dior replica handbag. Well, no more of this nonsense because I am prepared to fix this right now!

The thing is that exact replicas are difficult to spot. These are so well made that when you look at it, you are positive that it is the authentic Lady Dior purse. Usually a basic and thorough comparison between the genuine product and the replica will clear things up. How much does it cost such an exact Lady Dior replica bag? The usual price for it varies between $250 and $700, depending on the online store where you buy it. If you haven’t bought a fake purse before and you need more information for understanding what are the main things you should compare between a replica Lady Dior and the real product there here you have some useful tips.

Quilting- Comparison is the key here

Compare the replica with the original bag. You can use pictures of the genuine product if you don’t have access to the real Lady Dior purse. The shape of the quilting is very important and it is considered one of the best ways of determining how authentic a Dior bag is. See how bulge the quilting really is. Can you see any irregularities or flaws in the stitching? Regardless if the bag is very used and has flat quilting or if it comes in flat cannage stitching and does have the iconic Dior quilting, you can still use the quality of the stitching to see if the bag is a cheap replica or an authentic looking one. Try to count each space and column to see the difference, check the bottom and sides to see where the stitching starts and ends. But the overall appearance of the quilting is enough to tell you how genuine a Lady Dior fake looks. This should have a beautiful elegance, one that impresses your sight.

Heat embossed stamp

Over the years, Dior has changed numerous times its embossed stamp. Normally, a heat embossed stamp has written on one side Christian Dior Paris and on the other side the date code. The company uses a clear ink that matches the hardware used on the Lady Dior handbag. This stamp needs to be clearly printed and without any faded portions. You usually need to turn around the strip to see the date code. No matter how good the replica will be, there will still be a visible difference between the stamp of the original purse and of the replica one. The date code helps you see if the particularities of the bag match with the designs that were manufactured during that specific year. If the Lady Dior is similar to the style manufactured by the brand in a completely different year then you will know that it is a poorly made fake. Another very useful tip is to take a look at the stitching on the leather tab and compare it to the flawless stitching of authentic purses.

Verify the lining of the bag.

There are numerous types of lining used for Lady Dior bags as the company changes the color, print and material of the lining from a year to the other. This is done as to make things difficult for replica manufacturers who are trying to constantly copy Dior purses. Particular types of lining are specific for certain Lady Dior versions and these should be compared to the date code that is heat embossed on the product. For instance, before 2005 most Lady Dior handbags were made with cannage lining so these should have a date code of 2005 for earlier. If you see a date code of 2013 on a purse with cannage lining then that product is clearly a replica.

Don’t forget about the handles

The handles of the Lady Dior handbag should be shaped slightly triangular with a semi-circular bent. Even though this sounds difficult to replicate, fake manufacturers have already found a way of copying this style of handles. My advice to you is to take a closer look at the space between the base and where the rounding of the handles start, and at the quality of the stitching. The space around and between the edges is important to examine. There is a big aesthetic difference between what you will see on a Lady Dior replica bag and what you will see on the authentic purse.

Replica Handbag Review: Mahina LV Selene MM

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Mahina LV Selene MM is a bag I am in love with. It is perfect; it is not too large, not too small either. It is definitely the most beautiful designer bag I have ever seen in my life. I love the style, I love the design, I love the smooth leather, I love everything about it. It is enough space in it to carry your stuff and even if there is a day when it is loaded too much and it became heavier the adjustable strap will help you carry it without any problem.

I bought this Mahina LV Selene MM replica bag from Pursevalley.cn and I was pretty impressed with the customer service’s prompt responses and the useful answers they had to all my questions, even if some of them were pretty silly. But you may know that when it comes to your money precaution goes to the first place. They can be contacted by chat, email or phone. I like their web site because it is very clean and easy to use, I placed the order there and it was processed in two days. It arrived to my place in 7 business days and the shipping was free of charge. I used my visa card to pay because the web site is secured, but they also have the Western Union payment option if you don’t trust internet credit card transactions. They have a very large variety of bags on their web site; I can’t wait for my new achievement.

As for my amazing Mahina LV Selene MM replica bag I can say that it is beautiful, the leather is very soft, it is obvious that it is top quality leather. The hardware is perfect so are all the markings, engravings, stamps and prints of the leather. Everything is excellent! This is not my first replica bag, but I can definitely say it is the best replicated one, and the most beautiful one I have in my collection. It’s not only my opinion about this bag, I went to the Lv shop in my city and compared it to the original bag, not even the seller there was able to say this was a replica.

This Mahina LV Selene MM replica bag is the kind of purse you want to have in your collection, it is a bag you should definitely buy and if you receive it as a present it is even better so tell you boyfriend about it, maybe he’ll make a nice gesture and buy it for you.
