Birkin price update.

Birkin price update.

Look what we found on this amazing handbags blog: the latest prices of the iconic Hermes Birkin handbag! According to www.purseblog.com, these are the last updated prices from July 2016, depending on the size and the leather. They also give prices in Japan and the USA but trying to follow up on the ones in British Pounds is hard enough with all the fluctuations since the Brexit referendum! Both Hermes consumers and resellers are fascinated by these rate changes as it means that one day, Birkins might be cheaper in British Pounds and the following day, they might actually be cheaper in Euros. Hermes will update their prices in January 2017, as they do each year, but meanwhile, we will have to be quite assiduous on the exchange rates… Let’s just hope France does...

Does your handbag need a little care and attention?

Does your handbag need a little care and attention?

No matter how hard we try to keep our bags in as new condition it is inevitable that with use marks, stains and general wear and tear happen.  Whilst often these blemishes are barely visible and of course do not affect the enjoyment of the bag it’s always nice to have your bag looking as good as the day you first wore it.  Over the last few years Lilac Blue London staff have often been asked if they can repair, restore or clean bags and and now we are pleased to offer our Handbag Cleaning Service. The package includes full cleaning of the bag (inside and out), polishing of hardware to remove scratches, colour correcting where necessary and the addition of protection to the surface to prevent staining.  We also offer a restoration service which includes...

Finishing touches

Finishing touches

The “Season” is in full swing, we’re in the middle of Royal Ascot; Wimbledon and Henley Regatta are next and there are Polo tournaments taking place on a regular basis.  For all these events the actual sport is only part of the occasion – it’s all about seeing and being seen and what you wear is of paramount importance.  Many outfits are months in the planning and the time and effort taken into getting the look exactly right is huge. To complement your outfit, we here at Lilac Blue London would suggest that an Hermes bag is the ideal finishing touch.  For example this stunning Vintage Kelly in Cognac Ostrich which made its debut at a Cartier Day at the Guards Polo Club and has only been worn 3 other times – it’s a...
