Imagine having the kind of bank that you could drop $377 thousand dollars on a bag? Who does this?
Well, apparently an unidentified buyer who nabbed it after 15-minutes of “intense” bidding at a Christie’s auction.
The Hermes bag is described as a matte white Himalaya Niloticus crocodile diamond Birkin 30 which now holds the title of the most expensive handbag ever sold at auction.
This isn’t the first time a Birkin 30 had a major price tag attached. Last year, Christie’s auctioned a similar bag for $300,000. Why did this one beat the previous record? This time around the purse is encrusted with higher grade diamonds and features more gold. Oh, well, DUH!
I’m frugal so I don’t get spending this kind of crazy money on a “handbag” but then again, if you can buy a handbag that’s being auctioned something tells me you aren’t the frugal kind. All I can add is, sigh, must be nice. ~grace
