The rare dark red crocodile Hermes 45cm HAC was made in 1972. The bag was given to Christie’s to be auctioned, and was said to be sold for a reported $40,700. The price was not out of this world, as many Hermes items that are rare may go for much more. The Crocodylus porosus is an exotic staple of the house, highly sought after, highly stunning, and highly priced.

Someday I will own my very own Hermes Birkin.
