Here is the procedure to follow to be able to buy a Hermès Birkin
The Birkin by Hermès It is one of the most iconic and sought-after bags in the world, a symbol of luxury and refinement. But to be able to buy one, the process to follow is really very long and, although fascinating, often requires a lot of patience and perseverance.
Let's talk about the iconic model designed in honor of Jane Birkin in 1986 by Jean-Louis Dumas, who at the time was the CEO of Hermes. It is a timeless accessory with its double handles and design that winks at Kelly, but less structured and therefore more suitable for the day.
Over the years this object of desire has become increasingly rare and unattainable to those who do not have important economic possibilities and (almost) infinite patience. For fans of the genre The waits are really long and exhausting and contribute to increasing his myth of "beautiful and impossible" (remember Samantha's scene in Sex And The City?).
But how do you buy a Birkin?
First of all, you need to know that this model, like Kelly, is produced a few specimens per year and some proposals remain available just one or two seasons a year, so it is necessary first of all identify a trusted boutique and "court" it. What does it mean? That you have to become loyal, buying often in that store and making friends with the reference salt assistant. Becoming a customer allows you to have access to a preferential channel and to put yourself on the list to book the bag of your dreams.
The waiting time can vary from several months to several years, depending on the model requested and availability. And while you wait for the store to call you, it will be appropriate to continue to frequent the boutique and spend. The more you buy, the shorter the time will be. It's equally important to make sure you are ready when your Birkin arrives. At that point you will be shown in a room reserved for "very special customers", as Barney Thompson would say to Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Here you can decide to settle for the proposed model or refuse and wait for more indefinite time to hope to be put back on the list for a new Hermès.
The waiting time can vary from several months to several years, depending on the model requested and availability. During the waiting, the customer can also be contacted by the store to verify the interest and confirm the purchase request. In this case, a deposit which will be returned only in case of withdrawal of the request.
But that's not all. To be able to buy a Hermès Birkin, as we can imagine, you also have to be willing to spend very high figures. In fact, the price of the bag can vary from a few thousand euros up to astronomical figures, depending on the model, material and accessories.
In addition, be aware that Birkin is not only a luxury product, but also a investimento. In fact, many Birkins purchased years ago are now collectibles and can be resold for much higher figures than the original price.
