5 Hermès Bags Under 5k – 2021 Edition

Hermès remains the epitome of luxury and exclusivity, particularly when it comes to handbags. Acquiring the holy grail trilogy – the Birkin, Kelly and Constance – still eludes many. But Hermès quality goes far beyond just those three bags. In other words, you have options.

Coming from the House of Hermès, naturally these bags are high on design aesthetics and craftsmanship. Don’t think of them as just placeholders until the HGB arrives. Moreover, unlike the trifecta, they are relatively easier on the wallet and to get. What’s more…building a collection of these can and will go a long way in establishing that much talked about relationship with your sales associate at the boutique. That, of course, could lead to a very special offer. So, while you wait for the HGB of your dreams, why not enjoy a more affordable yet stunning handbag by Hermès?
