I am a bag addict and have just bought my Hermes Birkin and Kelly (both together at the same time) and I love them both. I know that Hermes rules the handbags universe and the Birkin and Kelly rule Hermes bags so what is there after Hermes? I don’t want to lose my life passion after this, if you get what I mean?
Hi Purseholic Sisca
Congratulations on your Hermes purchases. You must be thrilled! I wish I could tell you that once you own both Birkin and Kelly, you are set and you will no longer need any other bag in your life but if you are truly a bag addict, like what you claimed to be, there is never a bag purchase to stop you from buying the next one. They might make your more selective from here on and leave you play only with bags of comparable quality and prestige but they will NEVER stop you, unfortunately or otherwise, depending on what you fear.
What is there after Hermes Birkin and Kelly? There are Birkins and Kellys in other colors, ostrich and Croc Porosus with diamond-paved platinum hardware. How about bags created by Hermes just for you and named Hermes Sisca (You heard me right!)?
Taking Hermes off the table, the hottest bag designers come and go every season too. This season, I am into Jil Sander, Victoria Beckham and the classic Goyard bags. I was into Prada and Reed Krakoff bags last season, Balenciaga and Valentino bags the season before. So you see – as much as you wish the twin purchase would stop you forever from buying another bag, the best they do is just to slow you down (which is good enough). Give yourself two years, at most and you will feel like yourself again. =)
PS: Those Goyard trunks in the picture on top? They all belong to Karl Lagerfeld. Simon Doonan of Barneys (above) is known to be a big fan of Goyard too, seen here with customized Goyard Ambassade.
