Fashion : HERMÈS! A piece of fashion history.
1 July, 2016. \\ Admin

Since Hermes began as a harness workshop specializing in the finest horse harnesses and bridles in 1837, Hermès has transfixed the world with its supreme craftsmanship and elegant designs.  From examining and cutting leather to hand-stitching and melding hardware, highly trained artisans craft each Hermès piece is. 

Many of the Hermès craftsmen have studied at Paris’ Ecole Grégoire-Ferrandi, and are required to pass various exams prior to constructing their first Hermès handbag. Throughout its history, the Hermès brand has been inspired by numerous style icons such as Princess Grace of Monaco and Jane Birkin; leading to the design of the most coveted handbags in the world – the Hermès Kelly and Birkin.

Because of its expensive price tag it can only be afforded by the rich and extravagant, mostly celebrities  like Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga. Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Ora, Khloe kardashian, Linda Ikeji, Gigi hadid, Nene Leakes, Kylie and Kris Jenner and most of these people customize theirs for huge sums. Kanye west gave Kim a huge Hermes Birkin for Christmas to add to her large collection of Brikins. It wasn't just any old Hermes but a surrealist nude portrait, hand painted by renowned artist George Condo.

Khloe Kardashians's hermes Birkin bag is the most coveted high fashion accessory and she has one in almost every rainbow color. She added one recently and showed it off on her IG page as it was painted by graffiti artist Alec monopoly and she called it her "money bag".

Quite recently Genevieve Nnaji had hers customized by a Nigerian artist With a side profile of a bald African woman wearing lobe earnings and a painted body which we think is really adorable.

A few weeks ago a crocodile, diamond encrusted Hermes Birkin with about 18k white gold hardware sold for over $300k  at a Christie auction  and the white diamond Niloticus crocodile  diamond Birkin 30 with 18k white gold and diamond hardware, was sold by a private Asian collector for $300,168 in Hong Kong making it the world's most expensive bag sold at an auction.

"The diamond pieces created by HERMÈS are exceptional but none beats the iconic nature of the Himalaya. It's believed that only two Himalaya diamonds are produced annually  making it one of the lowest production runs for handbags. It is a piece of 'fashion history' Christie added.
