Hermès Is Bringing Its Hermèsmatic Pop-Up to NYC

Categories:Other Brands

BECAUSE WHO DOESN’T WANT TO VISIT AN H-THEMED LAUNDROMAT?

Though Hermès bags are more in my wheelhouse, Hermès scarves have a massive following as well (just check out this scarf of the day thread!). There are so many scarves released by the brand, signifying the year, the theme, a color story, and beyond. Though the house is very old in some ways, in others Hermès is young and fresh with initiatives like this. For a few days this month in NYC, Hermès is bringing it’s Hermèsmatic Pop-Up Store to the city which allows customers to give their Hermès silk scarves a sprucing up.

This pop-up allows you to take part in the complementary dip dye wash program where you can bring your vintage scarves and have them updated via washing machines and dip-dying. There are some photos floating around that show before and afters and while the change of color is nice, the entire set-up seems like quite the experience. Every detail is thought out to make it a very Hermès event from the retro laundromat to the orange washing machines, orange waiting seats, and Hermès washing powder.

A member on our forum, Pegase, shared a wealth of knowledge about the Hermèsmatic Pop-Up as it’s a traveling event hitting other major cities and she’s already visited. Pegase reports you can bring as many scarfs as you’d like to have dip dyed and it’s free. When she visited in Munich, there were 6 colors you could choose from, Gray, Violet, Red, Olive, Yellow, Pink and Red. Once you have your scarf treated, you pick it up two days later as it needs to be washed, dyed and washed again. The scarves are returned to you in a special canvas pouch and they give you Hermès soap in a cube, but you have to ask for it! It’s important to note that Hermès won’t take responsibility for the results as they can not tell you what the final version your scarf will look like.

I included some photos from the other pop-ups and results, but if you’re in NYC and can stop by, take a scarf and try this out and share with us how it goes! There’s a long thread on the PurseForum discussing this, so you could meet up with other tPFers and even if you don’t have a scarf, it’s probably a sight to see. Event details are below:

HERMES SAC A DEPECHES BAG

Hermes-Sac-a-Depeches-Bag

The story of the Hermes Sac à dépêches Bag…

Did you know that, the Hermes Kelly Bag is now the most iconic luxury handbags in the world and that it was originally named the Sac à dépêches. Oh yes, getting excited already?

Only after Grace Kelly (American Actress and princess of Monaco) was featured in Life magazine carrying this purse, Hermes changed its name to Hermes Kelly Bag, and this is exactly how this classic was born.

This elegant briefcase was released around 2011 – an entirely new addition to the collection. And because the name ‘Sac A Depeches’ was sill single, Hermes decided to attach it to this business bag.

Why? I do not know.

The design is quite simple, but you need to learn to appreciate the details if you want to find the sophisticated elements. The leather (togo) is flawless and the front closure beautifully refined. The edges are perfect – it’s document case for the working girl.

Available in either black or brown, its sized 30 x 41 x 10 (H x W x D) cm,

Most Expensive Hermès Birkin Sold at Christie’s

Categories:Other Brands

Hermès Birkin handbag with diamonds fetched a record breaking $221,846 at Christie’s auction in Hong Kong

BN-IR465_birkin_M_20150601044308auction.

I woke up today to the news that the most expensive Hermes bag ever to be sold at an auction commanded a price that most associate with the down payment of a 1,000,000 dream house!

The sale breaks the previous record that was set at a U.S. auction in 2011 for another Birkin Bag, in red crocodile skin, that sold for $203,150.

The bag was one of more than 300 that Christie’s put on the block in Hong Kong, which has emerged as a global auction centre.

Ironically, the record news comes at a time when luxury brand names such as Chanel and Gucci have been realigning their prices in Hong Kong and China to attract buyers.

Just last weekend, Italian fashion house Gucci followed Chanel’s lead and slashed many of it’s prices in China by nearly 50%, triggering those long lines we covered extensively here at PurseBop. Epic lines formed  in front of it’s stores in Shanghai, Beijing and other major Chinese cities.

Remember in March, Chanel dropped the price of it’s classic flap bag by $1,400 in Asia and gave shoppers that had recently purchased a credit note equal to the difference.

And supposedly there’s a luxury slump?
