I went to Hermes in Kuwait to fill out my paperwork for the "wish list" and there it was...the famous Black Crocodile and Diamond Birkin bag that BB said she and her co-worker actually got to examine while they were shopping at Hermes. Knowing that I could never ever afford such a bag I was still so curious of what it looked like up close, inside and how it felt between my fingers. So I asked to see it and within seconds it was on my legs and I was touching it. LOL!
The salesman said it was KD 65,000 and the same price as a Lamborghini. A crocodile Birkin with diamond-encrusted hardware is one of the most elusive and expensive collector’s items in the world. Basically, a well preserved Birkin bag will hold its value better than your luxurious, imported sports car.
It's a beautiful bag and probably the last time I will have the opportunity to hold a $233,350 purse. It kind of makes the bag I ordered from Hermes look like a real bargain. ;P
I was really impressed with their beautiful, spacious store that just opened in Kuwait. Their staff is warm and friendly. You literally just drive up to the front door of Al Hamra and they have valet parking. The only bad thing is when you pick up your car outside they have to drive it on the main road with merging traffic. It's an easy place for a minor car accident. Other than that the location is perfect with easy access for the man in your life to shop. ;)
