On February 20, 2016, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will offer a single-owner collection of designer handbags at the Arm Candy auction in Palm Beach. This sale includes over 100 covetable Hermès handbag styles such as the Evelyne, the Lindy, the So-Kelly, the Kelly and the Birkin, each represented by cool and warm color combinations.
The Birkin in particular has seen an influx of interest from both fashionable and practical buyers who recognize its investment potential. Harper’s Bazaar has called the Hermès Birkin the most exclusive purse in the world, and a new study finds that the bag has outpaced both the S&P 500 and the price of gold in the last 35 years. With an extensive waiting list, buying a Birkin at auction offers an accessible and reliable way to purchase a luxury accessory with staying power.
The array of bright and bold colors seen in Arm Candy offers something for every style. “Auctions are a great way to purchase highly sought after designer bags such as the Birkin or Kelly,” said Anne Forman, Director of Couture and Luxury Accessories. “Our client purchased many of the unique, attractive colors from Hermès stores in Naples, New York and Paris. We’re fortunate to have such a well kept collection of handbags that are essentially new.”
