When it comes to Hermès, we can admit that we’re a little biased. If you head over to our new Designers page (part of the website reorganization!) and click on Hermès, you’ll see that most of the H articles on our site focus on the bags of the “Holy Grail Bag” trifecta: the Birkin, the Kelly, and the Constance. While these bags are exclusive, stunning, and the epitome of luxury, Hermès boutiques are also home to a full array of beautiful bags that are less expensive and don’t require a waiting game. Some of these bags are under $5,000! If you have not yet been offered a B, K, or C, or if you simply want to change things up and look at other Hermès options, this list of 5 H bags under $5,000 is for you.
