Heart Evangelista totes PHP21.1-M Hermès Birkin in Japan

Heart Evangelista has added another expensive new Hermès Birkin to her ever-growing bag collection.

On Wednesday, January 4, 2023, the 37-year-old Kapuso actress posted on Instagram a photo of her OOTDs during her Japan trip with husband, Senator Chiz Escudero, and his kids Quino and Chesi.

One photo shows Heart wearing knee-high Dior boots, green skinny jeans, white leather hooded Dior jacket over her knitted turtleneck sweater, and toting her new bag—an Hermès Neige (Snow) Faubourg Birkin.

Her caption reads, “Day 2 [emojis].”

Hermès Faubourg Birkin

According to premiere auction site Sothebys.com, the Hermès Faubourg Birkin is one of the six rarest and most expensive editions of the iconic bag—which includes the Sac Bijou Birkin, the Himalayan Birkin, the Diamond Birkin, the Ombré Birkin, and the Metallic Birkin.

First released in 2019, the Faubourg Birkin was made as an homage to the French luxury brand’s storefront on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris.

The Faubourg Birkin features three windows with orange awnings, a shopping bag clochette, Palladium hardware, and a top flap and handles made with exotic skins.

This handbag only comes in 20cm size, and in Sellier construction. Sellier refers to the construction style that uses external stitching resulting in a highly structured bag.

Hermès has released four versions of the Faubourg Birkin bag. This includes the pioneer Day and Night editions released in 2019. Two new versions were released in 2021: the Minuit (Midnight) and the Neige (Snow) editions.

For each version, only 50 bags were produced and sold in the market, according to Oliver Stueck, co-founder of SACLAB.com, an online shop focussing on pre-owned luxury handbags.

Heart’s Neige (Snow) Faubourg Birkin comes with a body made with Matte Alligator skin and a top flap in White Togo leather.

If bought at the store, the Day, Night, and Minuit (Midnight) Faubourg Birkins have an estimated retail price of about USD30,000 or PHP1,669,590, according to Sothebys.com.

Meanwhile, Neige (Snow) Faubourg Birkin with matte alligator body is the most expensive version with an estimated price of USD48,000 or PHP2,671,104.

But the French luxury brand only offers the bag to their VIP clientele and only if it’s available.

The price quintuples on third-party resellers and auction sites.

A Neige (Snow) Hermès Faubourg Birkin bag was sold for EUR265,000 or about PHP15,689,559.45 on SACLAB.com.

Maisondeluxeonline.com is selling the bag for USD369,999 or PHP20.5 million. It is also listed on 1stdibs.com for USD375,795 or PHP21.1 million.

Heart didn’t mention where she bought the bag, but it’s highly likely that she bought her Faubourg Birkin at store price knowing that she’s good friends with Hermès executive Michael Coste.
