Investment-Worthy Hermès Handbags

According to Rebag’s 2023 Clair Report, Hermès is a unicorn, meaning their styles average 85% or more of the retail price at resale. Using millions of data points on primary and secondary market pricing, demand, and trends, our Report determined the French label’s top five styles in terms of value retention.

The Value of Hermès

For decades, Hermès has maintained an enduring foothold in the luxury market. Under Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski’s creative direction since 2014, the French label once again raised prices globally in 2023, contributing to the ever-growing sense of exclusivity surrounding the brand and its 6% increase in average value retention. The passing of style icon Jane Birkin in July further ignited interest in the maison’s highly coveted Birkin bags.

1. Constance Bag

2. Picotin Lock Bag

The bag of bags, the Hermès Birkin was first crafted in 1984, after Jean-Louis Dumas, then head of Hermès, had a chance encounter on a flight from London to Paris with the beguiling Jane Birkin. This iconic bag holds an impressive 108% of its value.
