Exotic leathers have long been a luxury status symbol in the handbag and high-end fashion world, with skins being harder to source, out of the ordinary and involving much more time, effort and care to execute effectively.

 

Top brands as a result of these factors request a higher price for their exotic collections due to the craftsmanship and unique nature of each item, as well as individual vibrant pieces being of extremely limited availability; often ordered months in advance or selectively retailed to chosen worthy clientele. 

As a result of their limited production and high costs, it is no wonder they have become a celebrity wardrobe essential and a statement piece for the fashion conscious ultra-rich. With price-tags nearing £15,000 for a Lady Dior crocodile handbag, or a starting price of around £30,000 for a pre-owned Hermes Birkin exotic, the owners of these rarities are few and far between and naturally often of elite status.

 

Like works of art archival exotics seem to hold no pre-owned retail value either, with prices varying and becoming based on approximation and lust rather than logic in the secondary market, especially for the more renowned brands that produce only a handful of any unique model.

 

To give a taster of these antique prices, recently a used diamond encrusted crocodile Hermes Birkin sold for £146,000 to an anonymous bidder at an auction in Hong Kong, and the most valuable reported bag according to Vogue was also a Hermes: a $432,000 diamond encrusted Himalayan crocodile Birkin.
