This is the most expensive handbag in the world


A rare Hermès Birkin bag sold at auction early Wednesday morning at Christie’s in Hong Kong for a whopping $382,000 USD.

It’s set a record as the priciest handbag ever sold at auction.

In 2016, a similar style was scooped up at Christie’s for around $377,000.

The coveted purse — which costs as much as a studio apartment on the Upper East Side — is the Niloticus Crocodile Himalaya Birkin 30.

It features diamond-encrusted hardware and has been dubbed the “Himalaya” because the delicate gradation of color from smoky gray to pearly white resembles the snow-capped mountain range.
