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.
