Update: According to my loyal reader Rodney, the custom Hermes cost a tidy $67,000.

Thanks to loyal reader Darnell for verifying that the purple Hermès carried by Pharrell Williams in an earlier post does belong to him. In the following post from Pharrell’s blog, he explains he traveled to Paris to pick up his custom made Hermès, which is normal procedure for the elite who can afford these bags. Most Hermès are made to order.

Stopped by Hermes yesterday to pick up my new travel bag. Hermes is a world famous luxury goods company originally known for it’s leather goods including it’s saddles and famous silk scarves. This purple croc bag is a “Haut A Courroie” which is the original Birkin bag. This bag is a custom piece hand made in the Paris shop. The key chain was made by Jacob. (Source)

Lucky him. A Hermès croc had to set him back 20 grand at least.

Rumors abound that Tom Cruise‘s Stepford wife Katie Holmes makes $2 mil a year to pretend to be content and happy with her neurotic husband. Now we know what she spends her cheese on. Katie was snapped yesterday wearing a gigantic Hermès bag.

As you know, Hermès is one of the most prestigious brands in all the world. A Hermès handbag can easily set you back $25,000 – that’s if you can find one. Most Hermès bags are made to order and the waiting list is long.

Meanwhile, people are still talking about this video in which Tom attempts to explain the benefits of being brainwashed and something about identifying SPs (suppressive people) who are enemies to Scientologists.
