The Loveliest Bags from the Sotheby’s Summer Auction

Lovely. We simply can’t think of a better word to describe the bags in the Sotheby’s Handbags and Accessories Sale. Birkins, Kellys, exotics—they’re all there, in striking hues comprising all the colors of the rainbow and then some. (Don’t fear, neutral lovers, there’s plenty for you!)

We’re thrilled to partner with Sotheby’s for the first time for their Online Sale, which runs from now to August 27th. Hermès reigns supreme, making up the majority of the 91 lots up for auction, but there are some Chanel and Louis Vuitton gems in the mix as well. We’ve selected our favorites below, narrowing them down based on color and “vibe.” (That’s right, there’s even a section on Quirky Takes on Classics!) Have a browse and see if any of these charming leather companions catch your eye.

Candy-Colored Birkins

Have you ever looked at rows of Birkins, all lined up neatly next to one another, and thought, This looks like an old-fashioned candy shop? There’s something so fun about Hermès’ vast range of color—it really embodies the fashion house’s commitment to playfulness. Don’t you think these beautiful Bs evoke Gopstoppers, Conversation Hearts, Jelly Beans?

Crush-Worthy Clutches

The perfect date bag? A clutch, no questions asked. No bag is more feminine than a clutch, carried in the hand or tucked under the arm. Romance and whimsy come together in these classic Hermès clutches, which you’ll certainly want to take with you on your next rendezvous!

Lipstick Ladies

Forget pairing your bag with your shoes—it’s time to match things up with your lipstick! From peachy nudes to electric florals, these lipstick-hued H bags are sure to complete your look. (In all seriousness, lipstick or not, all you have to do is be a lover of pink to fall head-over-heels for these beauties.)

Quirky Takes on Classics

Boy Bags, Birkins, Bolides: tried-and-true classics. With these bags, we think we know exactly what we’re getting. But that isn’t the case with the iterations below, which are fun and inventive takes on some of the most iconic handbags in the fashion world. Ready to change things up a bit? (…PurseBop has a huge soft spot for the pale blue Boy Bag!)

Ocean Breeze

Blue is everyone’s favorite color. Well, not everyone, but it is the color of choice for most people. Hermès has taken note, with stunning hues that call to mind anything from sea-turquoise to peaceful cornflower. These are some—though not all—of the Sotheby’s offerings in the blue department.

Bona Fide Staples: Neutral Bs & Ks

If you’re seeking versatility, look no further. These Birkins and Kellys make for the perfect everyday bag, if dark neutrals are your style. Chic and polished, with these you’re in good hands—erm, handles.
