The Hermès Birkin International Price Guide

Writer:fashion Date:2016-7-22 15:00 Friday Categories:Other Brands

There is no designer handbag in the world as elusive as the Hermès Birkin. The legendary French leather goods house keeps a tight lid on everything about the bag, from the best way to get one to which colors and leathers might be available in a particular size or hardware type at any given time. Among the biggest mysteries around the Hermès Birkin, though, is its pricing structure, and we’ve done some digging to clear up Birkin prices as much as we can.

Beyond general Hermès secrecy, several factors make determining Birkin prices tricky. First, the bag’s price varies widely among Hermès’s extensive leather offerings, even before you start looking at exotics. There’s also much variation between international markets, and since Birkins are sought-after worldwide, understanding how currency and location can affect what you pay is important for the brand’s high-flying clientele. There are also frequent price increases to take into account–finding an Hermès Birkin price list from a year ago likely won’t give you an accurate picture of what the bag will cost now. On top of that, pop culture media loves to inflate the Birkins price tag to bring in readers looking to gawk at the wealthy–$30,000 is often the fake price tag used, and even Fortune claims the bags start at $12,000, which is patently false.

What we’ve set out to do is create an Hermès Birkin price list for three of the most common leathers–Clemence, Togo and Epsom–in the four sizes that are commonly used as women’s handbags. Right now, we’re focusing on the US, eurozone Europe, the United Kingdom and Japan, which are the four global markets for which pricing information is most available. Below, check out our findings, pulled from bothour PurseForum and price lists across the web.

The information is incomplete, but we’ll be filling it in as much as possible as we find more information. If you know any current prices that aren’t represented below, please let us know in the comments!
