Hermès Kelly Bag; Crocodilus Porosus Bordeaux; 33 cm
Estimated: € 11.000 - € 12.000
Hermès / Vintage / Fashion lovers rejoice! Some awesome fashion news has just landed in my inbox: auction house Cornette De Saint Cyr in Brussels will be hosting the first auction of vintage Hermès goodies in Belgian history. About 350 stunning pieces will be auctioned; just think Carré scarfs, prêt-à-porter for both men and women, watches, jewelry, silver / crystal tablewear and china ... and some stunning Birkin, Kelly and Constance bags of course. The prices are estimated between € 60 and € 30.000.
Unfortunately, I have to work the day that the auction takes place. I would have loved to see a live auction for once. Will there be people on the phone, bidding for some insanely rich, anonymous buyer? Does the host really babble ridiculously fast when searching for bidders? Hell, I got an entire movie scene in mind.
If Birkin bags and Clic-Clac H bracelets are way above your budget, but you'd love to see what the auction has to offer, there's also an Hermès exhibition for you to visit. All of the pieces will be displayed for the public to view and admire.
