The auction took place online, organised by Dame Brigitte Kruse, founder of Kruse GWS Auctions, a house specialising in the sale of rare and precious objects, including fashion. The lots for sale also included a Birkin Shiny Black Porosus Crocodile 10.70 CTW Diamond & White Gold. A model never used, in crocodile leather, decorated with diamonds and white gold.
Fetishism or collecting?
This other craziness for a Hermès Birkin testifies to the tremendous success of this luxury item, coveted by collectors and fantasised by fashion lovers. As reported by the360mag.com, since April 2020, Dame Brigitte Kruse has sold bags worth over 2 million dollars, all of which are from famous brands. For example, Chanel, Gucci, Fendi, Valentino and Christian Dior. But many others too.
