Victoria Beckham amasses Hermes Birkin collection worth £1 million
For most of us, £25,000 might represent a year’s salary, perhaps the deposit on a house or the sum total of your life’s savings, but for Victoria Beckham, it’s just another handbag.
Stepping out yesterday, Posh was spotted toting her latest arm candy – a £24,740 Hermés Birkin burgundy bag, reportedly a Christmas gift from husband David.
The design – named the bordeaux porosus crocodile – joins Mrs B’s extensive Birkin collection, which is now thought to be worth a whopping £1 million.
Perhaps Posh’s most enduring fashion love affair, the stylista has remained steadfastly loyal to the label’s luxury handbags, and is rumoured to have amassed a collection of hundreds. In an array of colours, styles and luxury leathers, she now has a Birkin for every outfit, and the latest addition isn’t even the most costly of the bunch.
The jewel in her collection’s crown has to be a 2008 Christmas gift from David – the £80,000 diamond-studded silver edition of the Himalayan Birkin, one of only three in the world.
Now that’s what we call a style obsession!
