Hermès Exotics Collier De Chien Bracelets

IMAGE: HERMÈS

Ladies, you know what this is, it is Hermès’ signature fashion jewellery piece, the Collier de Chien (or CdC, for short), except this time the ones you see right here are the ones that come in the very precious exotic skins. You could say, the ones in croc and lizard skins are the finer, more elevated versions of the ones we typically see in leathers like Box and Epsom, and it’s precisely for this reason that they are highly sought after, and valued by ladies (and some men) who love a good CdC.

Available in a wide array of colours, they come in 3 different hardware finishes, namely Gold (GHW), Palladium (PHW) and Rose Gold (RGHW) with an assortment of sizes that will suit most wrists.

For the ones in exotic croc, it comes in matte or polished versions in favourite colours like Noir and Rose, while for the lizard skins, aside from the solid colours, the ombré versions are really luxe. While pieces in exotic skins aren’t as readily available as the ones in calfskin leather, checks have been done at the Hermès boutiques in Singapore and here are the pieces available and prices just for you.

There are the lizard skin pieces, including the ombre ones, and they are priced at SGD2050 each (there’s one available in ombré/RGHW over at Takashimaya Shopping Centre), while the ones in exotic croc are priced at SGD2900. As for the ones in calfskin leather? SGD1700, which also means it is well worth the price to pay slightly more for the ones in exotics.

Hermès Birkin Himalayan crocodile bag review

Hermes

Today we are going to speak about an outrageous priced handbag, one that costs more than some people spend to buy a new house. This purse is called Hermès Birkin Himalayan crocodile and its price tags says $300,000. We are accustomed with Hermes’ staggering prices and the incredibly long waiting list for buying one of their Birkin bags, but this is just insane. No doubt about it, it is the most expensive Hermes purse so far.

I have to admit that the handbag is stunning and that it has a couple of very important qualities that kind of justify why someone who is rich would spend that much on a bag. The Himalayan crocodile purse measures 30 cm and it is one of the rarest models on the globe. The product is hand made from Nilo crocodile skin in a discrete color that is reminiscent for the imposing  Himalayan mountains. This shade is obtained through a special dyeing process that takes a lot of work and time. To match the subtle color of the leather, the bag comes with 18 karat white gold hardware decorated with white diamonds. The iconic cadena lock of the Birkin is manufactured from 68 grams of 18 k white gold and studded with 40 white round diamonds. The overall purse has over 200 diamonds on its three different structural elements- the Plaques de Sanglons, the Pontets and the Touret.

The Hemes Birkin Himalayan crocodile bag was created in a limited number and was offered to a very short list of VIP clients. This very significant detail increased the purse’s value on the resell market so currently to acquire this model that is no longer in production thus not available for purchase you need to pay over $432,000. Hermes is the only handbag manufacturer that can sell on the secondary market at a higher price than its retail price.

People describe this jaw-dropping Hermes as one of the rarest and most desirable handbag in the world. And making one involves extensive work. It took a Hermes artisan about an year to craft the purse and the brand guarantees its sturdiness by vowing to repair it any scratches or damages immediately.  Considering the scandalous price I seriously doubt that anyone would ever wear or handle the bag without extreme care. I, for one, would keep it on a pedestal if I had one.

Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Tamara Ecclestone and Marjorie Harvey are just a few of the celebrities that own this much-sought after purse. A couple of very interesting thing about Victorian Beckham and Kim Kardashian who are huge fans of Hermes Birkin bags. Victoria Beckham has a collection of Hermes purses that is estimated at over 2 million dollars while Kim Kardashian has so many Birkin that she uses one for the gym and has another one that has been hand painted by her daughter to look more interesting. For those who are not familiar with the price range for a regular Birkin, the most ‘inexpensive’ version costs about $10,000.

So there you go gals, if you needed something to treat your eyes with then you have certainly found it. The Hermes Birking Himalayan crocodile purse is a spectacular model that is manufactured from rare crocodile skin and is decorated with 18 k white gold and white diamonds. It is a luxurious bag that is available only for Hermes’ elite.

Gold, S&P 500, or Hermes Birkin

Hermes

What will you do with the money if you win the Powerball tonight? Perhaps you want to know what to do with that end-of-year bonus and tax refund. Purse aficionados considering stashing assets in gold or the S&P 500 might want to think again. It turns out the “safest and least volatile” investment of those three may be in the bag…the Hermes Birkin bag.

As reported in racked.com, the Baghunter compared investment returns on gold, the S&P 500, and the Birkin over the last 35 years, and the Birkin was the clear winner.  In that time, the Birkin increased in value more than 500% and has never decreased even in times of recession and economic difficulty. Baghunter says the Birkin averaged annual value increases of 14.2%, significantly higher than either gold or S&P 500.

Baghunter founder Evelyn Fox told luxurydaily.com “As a whole, the study findings show how stable the ultra-luxury industry has been over the past 35 years when compared to more traditional investment opportunities.”  According to Fox, “There is a difference between luxury and ultra-luxury. While the luxury market suffers during worse economic times the ultra-luxury market is impervious to economic factors that can affect other industries such as high-street retail and stock markets.”

Fox expects this trend to continue in 2016, pointing to the Birkin’s high retail prices and limited availability along with a strong secondary market from resellers.

Chloe Spring 2016 Campaign Is About Bohemian Carefree Style

Hermes

Selfies, incorrectly held camera photos and perfectly times unwitting pictures depicting the days and nights of a group of girls is what defines the Chloe spring/summer 2016 campaign, starring gorgeous Antonina Petkovic, Ari Westphal, Celine Bouly, and Ilvie Wittek. The new team has been hired as a manner by which to switch up the key players of the campaign, taking it all in a different and new direction. Clare Waight Keller opted to hire on heir to the Rolling Stone music magazine, photographer Theo Wenner.

Chloe Spring/ Summer 2016 Campaign

“This campaign is very exciting for me because I really wanted to create a new energy for Chloé this season,” creative director of the French fashion house, Clare Waight Keller, said. “Theo is a photographer I have worked with several times before, and I really appreciate his youthful eye and spontaneity behind the lens,” the label’s designer added. “Likewise, I wanted to bring new faces to Chloé as they represent a more adventurous, free-spirited, impulsive side of the Chloé girl.”

Chloe went down to Argentina for the spring campaign and it certainly paid off, giving us incredible destination images that will inspire travelling in style to somewhere other than the picture perfect Italy, France or Spain. Buenos Aires certainly has much to offer, which certainly made for a colorful ad campaign that aptly showed off the brand’s diverse spirit, with cobblestone streets and mosaic tiles as the perfect backdrop for the season’s collections.

“There was a color and quality to the light on location, like there is dust in the air, and it made everything more vivid. These colors and textures seemed to perfectly embody the spirit of Chloé and this collection,” said Wenner. It certainly appeared as such as we look at the way the dreamy tassel tops, silk dresses and fringed bags fit right in with the city’s atmosphere. It was certainly a good neighbourhood to be in it appears.

It certainly makes us love the collection even more, for the design of the clothing is positively superb and each piece can be worn by the ladies out there who simply enjoy looking young and hip, no matter how old they get year after year. If it was Keller’s wish to instill more excitement into the campaign overall, this move with new models, a new photographer and a new location to shoot certainly gave us that.

The colorful outfits were dappled in sunlight during many of the shots and everything had a rather relaxed feel to it. The carefree spirit was captured even more through having unknown streets used for the campaign shots, working so well with the full-length dresses, the multi-colored shades and loose fits overall, the standout photo undoubtedly being the one where the model gazes at the floor in oversized sunglasses while wearing a short black skirt and asymmetrical top that matches over it, a tan leather bag thrown over her shoulder. Out of all the campaigns we have seen, this certainly make the top 15 for us, fashion lovers.
