If you are a bag lover you know that owning one from Hermes is the ultimate dream. Birkins are so hard to buy that you can end up waiting years on a list and still not get it. Hermes bags are far from cheap, so you really need to get your priorities straight before you make up your mind.
The two main styles that usually cause doubt are Birkin and Kelly. The first one is named after a French actress Jane Birkin, while the second one is named after Princess Grace Kelly. Both have been around for quite a while and are absolutely stunning to look at.
Birkin or Kelly?
Let’s skip to the important part. These two styles are similar, but there are still minor details you need to think about. Birkins are usually more expensive. Both come with two small handles, but Kelly also features a shoulder strap. The Birkin does not close with a zipper on top and doesn’t have a flap, so if you want a really secure bag you should pass. Kelly, on the other hand, has a flap that closes with hardware. The two styles come in several different materials and a whole range of colors and patterns.
