Known for her luxurious lifestyle and wardrobe, we all would love to take a peek at Kylie Jenner’s luxury handbag collection. Kylie's closet consists of many different luxury purses including Hermès, Prada, and Louis Vuitton. However, recently, her Hermès collection has been at the top of her list because of the resale value it holds.
Hermès remains one of the luxury brands with their iconic bags like the Birkin and Kelly bags with amazing resale value. For example, the value of Hermès Birkins appreciated by 93% over the last 10 years, while the Hermès Kelly increased by a whopping 129%.
Let's take a look at some Hermès handbags Kylie Jenner has in her closet.
1. Niloticus Crocodile Retourné Himalaya Kelly
"If my house is on fire, I would take this one out of all of them if I could only choose one." says Kylie.
The most coveted and rare Hermès handbag is the Himalaya Kelly. This bag is crafted from Nile crocodile hide with a material that is dyed a smoky brown, fading into a pearly white. The gradation of colors evoke the imagery of the Himalayan mountains. The lock clasp is made from over 68 grams of 18-carat white gold and is encrusted with diamonds. In 2021, an Hermès Himalaya Niloticus Crocodile Diamond Retourne Kelly 28, embellished with 18-carat white gold and diamond hardware, sold for over $500,000 at Christie's Hong Kong, setting a new auction world record for handbags.
2. The Faubourg Birkin Kylie Jenner was recently gifted with The Faubourg Birkin for her 25th birthday, which is valued at over $350,000. The exact models that she owns are the Beton Matte Alligator, White Togo, Blue Brume Chevre and White, Orange H, and Craie Swift Neige Faubourg Birkin 20 Sellier with Palladium Hardware.
The Faubourg Birkin is a collector and craftsmanship dream. The unique style of the bag represents the model of the Hermés flagship store at 24 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore. It made its original debut in 2 colors: brown and navy. Hermès has since released new versions of the bag in Beton. The Faubourg is the first of its kind to be crafted in a 20cm size and comes complete with Sellier stitching and orange awnings. The Faubourg Birkin uses various exotic leathers, matte alligator flap, and Palladium hardware.
3. Hermès So Black Birkin Considered a staple in the Hermès catalog of handbags, The Hermès So Black Birkin was one of Kylie Jenner's first Birkin bags. She attributed the purchase to her momager, Kris Jenner, as she was encouraged to purchase the bag for its value and scarcity.
Jean Paul Gaultier designed the collection during his time as Creative Director in 2010. As one of his final creations for Hermès, the So Black Birkins are highly desired because it's unclear how many Hermès produced and if they would ever produce them again. The Hermès So Black Birkin is a limited edition handbag crafted in box calfskin leather and black hardware. Hermès calls this limited edition Birkin "a bag made for monochromatic blackaholics." It is classic and timeless.
