GMA‘s Kapuso talents Heart Evangelista and Marian Rivera, are recognized for their classic trends as well as classy choices, are currently tossed right into a face-off by their followers as images of their elegant bag collections show up on the internet.
Just lately, Heart published the images of her high end hand bags merely weeks apart while for Marian it’s already lurking on her instagram account which was published several months ago.
Evangelista impressed her fans by revealing the bag as she rests cross-legged having a cup of Starbucks coffee.
On the other hand for Marian, she published the front, side, as well as the back views in her @marian-ootd instagram account.
The stunning hand bag is definitely to die for – it is 30-centimeters made from Nilo crocodile combined with an 18-karat white gold hardware studded together with white diamonds.
The thing that makes the Himalayan Birkin so pricey is its dyeing procedure that takes much time to complete. Based on the one of the leading experts on Hermès, Jane Finds, “The lighter the hue, the more difficult the process.”
Matthew Rubinger, the Senior Vice President of auction house Christie’s, mentioned that, “White is the hardest color to achieve with crocodile skin, as you have to remove all of its natural pigment.” The bag’s graduated tone from gray to white is inspired by majestic, snow-capped Himalayan mountains. It is believed that only one or two of these bag are produced each year by the Hermès atelier.
In a latest auction at Christie’s in Hong Kong, a 12-inch, matte, Himalayan Birkin was sold off to a standing-room-only crowd. In just four minutes, the bag was bought for USD 300,168.00 or PHP 14,102,643.00. The person who purchased the exquisite bag was a private Asian enthusiast.
Hollywood celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, as well as Victoria Beckham also possess the highly-coveted high-class bag.
