A Record-Breaking Birkin Bag Hits the Market

A record-breaking Birkin bag could be yours for roughly $500,000.


LePrix, a luxury online retailer, has acquired the special bag via Privé Porter, which speculators have suggested could net a whopping $500,000—easily shattering the previous record holder’s $380,000 Birkin bag price tag.

The rare Hermes Matte Himalaya Crocodile Birkin, which is part of a limited run variation of the Matte Himalaya collection from 2010 through 2012, is one of only two bags ever made with solid 18 carat white gold and Hermes factory installed diamond accents.

Interested parties can make a private offer for the bag at leprix.com.
