is it any surprise?
Quality. Heritage. Craftmanship. I'll take it.
The SAs told me about this. They expect bigger handbag shipments due to the increase in sales. We'll see...
$80'000 for a birkin! I hope I never become that shalow
quality speaks for itself

Well, Margiela is so much more suited to Hermès!

OT-great to see you tott...!!!...
what a treat...you and kit ....
tott, missed you lots
Missed you too, Lena! And softie and everyone else, of course!
I've been extremely busy engineering a huge piece of software for months and months, but it's finally done... It's been stressful in many ways, mainly because I haven't been able to plan anything. Not even knowing in what country I would be living in at times!
Anyway, to keep this slightly on-topic, the staff at Hermès in Munich is really nice! Chatty but not pushy, like it should be...
Softie and Lena are poets
Hermès Sells $2.7 Million at Guangzhou Store in One Day
Gemma A. Williams
April 14, 2020
Luxury titan Hermès reopened its Guangzhou store this week, racking in $2.7 million sales in one day, as originally reported by WWD. Located in China’s Guangdong province, the store had reportedly received a shipment of rare Hermès products, which tempted Chinese influencers and luxury consumers alike out of their homes to spend. The staggering amount is a positive indicator that Chinese consumers are ready to start purchasing again — if the product is right. As one of the most desirable luxury brands in the world, Hermès appears to be a mainland favorite, with buyers ready to purchase what the brand has to offer.
The Jing Take
Data from the online marketplace, Baghunter, recently suggested that collecting the brand’s coveted Birkin bag could bring more stability — and profit — than investing in gold. The average value of the bankable Birkin has increased by 14% over the past 35 years: It is now considered a financial asset that experiences the least volatility. Throughout COVID-19, reports flagged that the secondary market price of an Hermès Birkin bag went up during the crisis, while the value of a Rolex watch, for example, dropped. The verdict? Forget gold and put your money in Birkins.
People buying toilet paper like crazy...when they should have been buying Birkins like crazy (but I just hope they don´t use the bags for the same purpose as the toilet paper)...
And the value of the Birkin will raise even more because of the shut down here in France and the waiting list it will cause after....
But, making 2 millions a day does not mean that Hermès won’t be impacted by what’s going on. Maybe they are, like Chanel, more protected but the crisis will still hit them.
There was a WSJ article circulating a month or two ago regarding the secondary value increasing being an indication that Hermes is not producing enough for demand. In the past, that worked well for them in terms of word of mouth exclusivity but now that there's an accessible secondary market, they're just leaving sales.
Did it mention what type of products that's on? Something like a Birkin, which is made to order, are they limiting how many they will make in a year or is it on items that are readily available at the shop? On one hand, it could be viewed as not being "wasteful" in terms of overproduction.
They are closing another store in the same city and this one has moved to core part of the most hign-end mall in GZ (to replace Prada). The mall has been almost empty since the end of January. I am pretty sure this number is normal for them.....
They had many Special order waiting. Two bags for more than 170.000€. And normally an average Flagship makes around 1M or more. Also, I'm sure they are counting the sales of the past months that normally they must have on stand by (could be several thousands).
Many people from the business area see it as a miracle but it's actually not.
