Last year saw an Hermès Birkin sell for €112,000 on the second hand market. A rare Birkin Faubourg just sold for €158,000 through second-hand resale platform Vestiaire Collective. In Hermès stores the prices of their luxury bags including both the Kelly & Birkin increase every year. And with this brings an increase in the resale price.
The Birkin is a favourite bag for celebrities across the globe and is more than a symbol of wealth but a real investment for collectors. An unworn Birkin that still has its protective seals will grow in value every year, especially the rare versions. To be able to purchase a rare style, you will need to have a high purchasing power and have built a solid relationship with your sales assistant.
If you can purchase one of the newest colours of the season, such as Chai for 2022, you’ll have collectors and fans waiting to snap up your purchase. Even if the bag is on the larger side or is a less popular style, it will still be an investment. Second-hand pre-loved sites are seeing more and more Hermès items added to their sites.
The Birkin is set to celebrate its 40th birthday in 2024 and searches for the luxurious bag are growing year on year. We can’t wait to see what they will be launching for the anniversary, we’d suggest you start building your account now.
