Look what I spotted at the M boutique at The Gardens (run by the Melium group).
A Birkin bag!
The metallic green one on the far right is a real beaut. However, I found it heavy, the edges were a bit rough, and the clasp and flap were a real pain to do up and undo. It also cost upwards of RM2,500. The whole bag is leather (including the lining) which might explain the price, but still… I did not think it worth it. The sales assistant told me it was an Hermes. Really? If it is, I think I’m quite disappointed because I did not expect it to look and feel this way. Besides, since when was an Hermes Birkin bag so “cheap”?
The Birkin bag is a signature Hermes bag which I have been eyeing for a long long time. Last I knew they were RM40k a bag (or thereabouts) and a couple of years wait list to boot. When did Hermes drop their prices this drastically? Does anyone know?
Anyway, at RM40k for a bag from an Hermes boutique, I think I’ll be putting that money towards a car 😉
Still, a girl can dream can’t she?
I’m away for the weekend so do excuse me if I do not respond to your comments or enquiries in the interim. I’m off to explore what Singapore has to offer but as its a working trip, its hard to say if I’ll have time to do any shopping!
UPDATE: I found out that these bags are not Hermes but M Concept. I have no idea what M Concept is but I think its an in house brand of the Melium Group. So sorry to disappoint all but I knew it was too good to be true for Hermes to be this “cheap”! 🙂
