The word ‘iconic’ is one that should be used sparingly, but is often applied to items to simply give them more appeal. In the world of fashion accessories, there is no doubt that one item is in fact an icon; the Hermes Birkin handbag, a one of a kind design that is as beautiful as it is practical, and that is desired across the world.
The problem is the Hermes Birkin is also one of the most-copied – by that we mean faked – items in the fashion world. All too often disappointed owners discover that the bag they paid top dollar for is a cheap reproduction, and unless you know what to look for, some of the copies are very good indeed.
How you do tell if your Hermes Birkin is authentic? There are two ways to do this: buy from a Hermes outlet, or buy from someone who is an acknowledged expert in the field, and who offer a money back guarantee if you later discover you been sold a copy.
Buying a Birkin
Named after the legendary actress, model and singer Jane Birkin, the Hermes was introduced in the 1980’s and has since become the most sought-after bag with handbag collectors. They are still made today in limited and irregular production runs, hence the model remains very rare and collectable.
Perhaps the best way to get hold of an Authentic Hermes Birkin is to buy a pre-owned one, from one of the few acknowledged expert dealers in the field. They will have authenticated the bag using the known methods, and sell it with a guarantee. One such expert seller is L’Espionne Mode, a French company dealing not just in Hermes but in a variety of pre-owned luxury brands, and one that you can trust.
They offer Birkins in all the available materials and finishes when available, and they will also authenticate yours should you own one that you are unsure about, for a small fee. This is a service that is usually done online using descriptions and pictures, with a very quick response time promised.
As one of the most sought-after items in the fashion world, you will not expect even a pre-owned Hermes Birkin to be cheap, yet the prices at L’Espionne Mode are sensible and within the range you would expect. They know that you are buying an investment as well as a bag, and will make sure that you get the service you would from an appropriate boutique.
In addition to Hermes, you will find items from top designers such as Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Givenchy and more, all guaranteed authentic, top quality items and all at sensible prices.
The online shop is the place to go for the very best in Hermes Birkin bags and much more, so what are you waiting for? If you want to own one of these genuinely iconic bags, this is the place to get hold of one that is authentic and in excellent condition, and that will appreciate with age.
